Nice boots but ordered size 12 cause my feet are 12`s and they are too big can`t feel the shifter and they get stuck between the frame and footpeg on the left side, went down.I guess I don`t know how to order boots.Anyway maybe I can sell them to somebody with the right size feet. Thank you though.

This is a great boot for the price and the build quality is quite nice with the Italian leather. I purchased these boots for a trip over seas where I put ~2800miles on an BMW F800GS. No issues while riding these boots and they did a great job of keeping my feet dry and protected throughout the entire trip. These boots ran almost perfect to size for me (I have a small skinny size 9 foot), although there isn't any more adjustment room on the first or last buckle. That said I do feel like the calf circumference should be reduced a bit as I am almost out of Velcro for the top seal. After 2.5 months of daily riding in hot/cold wet/dry weather the only wear these boots have shown is a popping a stitch at the back of the ankle (does not affect performance). Overall I give these boots a 4.5 since the fit does lack a little.

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.

I ride a R1200GS ADV. Wore these boots on trip to Alaska. Extremely comfortable and easy to walk in. Unfortunately they are NOT waterproof. Had discussion with Gaerne and they promptly exchanged for new pair. Very good customer service. Put a bead of silicone on top of stitching from front to arch. Road to eastern Canada. Less leaking, but still damp feet, particularly on left foot. Electric socks saved the day. Now riding in Sidi Adventure boots and no problems to date.

I love these boots I'm currently on my second pair now. I ride mostly woods (hare scrambles and enduros) once in awhile I'll hit an mx track for fun and these boots work perfect. The buckles are simple and go on and off nice and easy and in 4 years I've never broke a single buckle on these.

This is the third pair of these for our family. Would never go back to painful MX boots. So comfortable and they appear to give pretty good protection for trail riding and dual sporting.
