I bought some Forma adventure. Great boot for the money. No break in. Comfortable out of the box. Overkill for the city? perhaps but there's a lot hard black stuff to land on as well.

I found a local supplier to try them first. Got some good advice about fitment and adjustment I would not have gotten online and I paid no more + no shipping. So I think I got extra value from the advice given.

I do tend to ride with a shorter boot around town. Eyeing off a pair of shorty Forma's. Mainly because I can be confident of the comfort and they are passable as a casual boot.

Thanks for this - good advice. Doubt my local dealer will stock these but maybe get them in. I've got a pair of Alpinestar roadd boots and they are a pain in ass to put on.

Ive used the Forma Adventure Low boot for the last 10,000 miles or more, through 2 winters in the UK and theyre still like new. Comfortable too.

+1 for Forma Adventures, high or low....feel like hiking boots when you're not riding. Low versions work well if you've got textile trousers with full length shin armour (Dainese etc.)

Let me take back my preferred boot choice...scratch the Rocky Paraboots!!!   Damn zippers now are tiny and weak!!! just brought back a pair after a 100 mile ride in the rain, the side zipper kept coming apart!! My older pair of Rocky Paratrooper non insulatated has a better zipper but is not waterprooff and its pretty damn ugly now! I did replace a Carolina tall logger boot today though...damn Good boot!!!!!!! check out the Carolina  CA5823 for cold and rain conditions

I ordered some of these a few days ago form Fort Nine (The Revzilla of Canada). They should be delivered next week.

I don't even have a bike yet, I am getting my license back next month (I let it lapse some time ago). Leaning towards a 500X but renting first to try different options.

Anybody have these boots? comments?

Cheers,
Patrick
