Gaerne Altus Road boots

I bought these boots and a pair of the Alpinstars Grand Torino because they have similar qualities. These are well-made and have a bit better toe, heel, ankle armor than the Grand Torino and they look great. They fit true to size and a tiny bit narrower in the toe as a new boot but fit my 13-D foot fine. They are an inch taller than the Alpinestars Grand Torino boots. The interior is excellent. They fit much closer to the calf than the 08 G-Kings I have.

I really liked these boots for their height, design and quality of construction – however, I measure a size 9 and always wear a standard width but these boots in a 9 were way too narrow (even with very thin socks) and in a 10 were just wide enough for a mid-weight sock but were simply too long for me. Sadly I had to return them.
Note that since I didn’t keep them, I rated them a 5 on Durability only because they `appeared’ to be well constructed.

These boots fit my size 10 US foot well but they are quite narrow. They will be excellent in wet cool weather but are very warm for hot summer wear. If you need a tall boot for safety & wet weather they will be a good choice. If you have EE or EEE width, they will be too narrow.
