I normally wear Gaerne SG10's and have for years. The weight of the SG10 is getting a bit much on my destroyed knees.
Tried the G-React, same size as the SG10,(13), and the G-React seemed tighter, and way stiffer. May just need time.
I was impressed with the quality and look of the boots. Unlike others, I did not have an issue with the fit of my foot.
The only downside I encountered with the boot is a pressure point where the second buckle sinches on my right ankle. Riding is not a problem, they are very comfortable. I do develop discomfort when having to walk. I have played with the tightness of the buckles to try and relieve the pressure point with limited success. This is my first pair of riding boots so I am not sure if this is a "common" issue. Other than that, I do like the boot feel while riding.
Bought for my 7 year old son. He loves them! Easy to clean, bright yellow stays yellow and simple to buckle. We have had a few weeks now and so far no problems. I would say these are true to size. I ordered bigger than his usual size for growth room. Yes, I would recommend to a friend.
Really I do like the boots. These were a size 40 and had them stretched for a week at the boot maker. I ordered a 9.5 which was orig a size 41. instead I got a 40 9.0.
Sometimes it just gets too complicated. They actually stretched out OK and they were snug enough at the top. The other 4 pair of boots that I ordered in basically my size looked like I was wearing men's golf shoes in the upper front. I also like the heel Because it was not to tall a heel. It has just enough curve to hang your boot heel on the peg but still easy to walk in. They are durable. I just wanted a newer pair to trade off with. These also had a tab at the top of the zipper to protect from hitting your bike with the zipper tab . The old ones didn't.
