Right out of the box these were some pretty great boots. Once they went on my feet I knew otherwise. They are made for tiny European feet. The toe tapers downward and ends up crushing a fat American toe.

These are the best boots out there, hands down! After trying every option available from Fox and AlpineStars, I decided to try these boots just based on the reviews all over the internet. They are absolutely perfect. Glad I took the chance on these.

Got these boots because a buddy said they were awesome. Spent the extra bucks b/c I knew I'd want and need the waterproof qualities this version had over other variants. Took a trip to the Swiss-Austrian-Italian Alps last week. Rained probably 6 of the 13 days we were riding. The front half of both of my feet were completely soaked on each of these days. Luckily I had thick socks for the first few days so at least my wet feet were warm...still wet. In the latter days, I ran out of heavy socks so my feet were cold (and wet) taking much of the enjoyment out of the riding we were doing. Best part about wet boots is taking them off and putting on dry socks at the end of a 9 hour riding day. Next best part...putting the wet boots back on the next morning because you have another 9 hours to ride. I think they look cool. They have great traction with the gummy sole. THEY ARE NOT WATERPROOF!! For $300+ I'd expect a better boot. Both of the guys in the group riding Sidis had no issues. Feet warm and dry. One guy's were several years old. If I can get my money back from Gaerne, I'll be buying Sidi's. Otherwise, these will be an expensive pair of dry wx only adventure boots - which obviously doesn't work. wha whaaaaaaa.

I am a size 44, but they only offer size 43 or 44 1/2. This was a big disappointment that they only had American sizing when it is manufactured in Italy. They seem like they will hold up well for the trail and dual sport riding I do up here in New England. I tested them out(not on purpose) a few weeks back. My wr250r slammed down on my left leg on a giant boulder. All I felt was a little pressure no pain. The boots do an excellent job at protecting.

Great boots, they fit like a glove right away, no break in time needed, they flex and move well outta the box, they are built well and can take a lot of abuse, very well made boots, work great on the track. Would recommend these to anyone who races MX or ride's mx bikes. Wouldn't buy any other brand.

Size is correct- just very narrow. Good features, easy to walk in- still hoping that they stretch out a little more.
