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.
LOVE THESE BOOTS, THIS IS MY SECOND PAIR AND I DONT PLAN ON BUYING ANYTHING ELSE. I HAVE HAD MY FIRST PAIR ABOUT A YEAR AND THEY STILL LOOK VERY GOOD AND ARE HOLDING UP GREAT. REALLY A NICE BOOT FOR THE MONEY. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
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.
