Buying Boots
« on: August 12, 2017, 12:19:57 AM »
I've been looking  to upgrade my boots for several weeks. ATGATT seemed so expensive initially, but upgrading allows me to be more selective. Adventure Gor-Tex look like what I want, anybody will order, nobody stocks. I hate to spend $600 to try on a pair of boots without a clue to fit. My local Cycle Gear guy told me to be there tomorrow, someone else has pair of size 44 Sidis coming in that I could try. I'd be ashamed to love them, tell him I'll think about it and come in next time with a pair from MotoStorm.

I just have Street Ace's, I haven't been able to afford fancy boots like that yet. In regard to fitment, I know RevZilla has free returns.
I don't actually own a vehicle with more than 2 wheels...

Try to find a pair you like and are able to try for size, whatever the brand. Then contact your local guy and ask him if he could order those to sell to you.
Might work. Boots that cost 600$ or 60$ are always a loss if they don't fit, you might as well buy army surplus boots....

I agree on trying for size.  Make sure you are wearing your motorbike gear as well.   I was going to buy Alpen Star Tucans, but the massive shin guard meant they would not fit under my trousers with the waterproof liner in place.   So I went for the Sidi Adventures.    Yes they are expensive, but they are really great quality and come out top in all the reviews I have read.

As I do a little trail riding as well as on pavement stuff, I bought a pair of Sidi Adventure Rain boots back in 2010.  I wear them touring and on the dirt bike.  The only drawback is that they are not good walking boots.  I still love them dearly for touring and on the dirt.

Yep Revzilla is the way to go. No hassle returns, very easy to deal with. I got my Forma Adventure low boots from them, had to swap for a different size and love them. Very comfortable to walk in. Got a couple of jackets from them that I had to swap also and it's never been a problem.

Thank you everybody, I'm convinced now it won't be a problem which ever boots I end up with. Old 'Struction worker habits are hard to break; Go to the Red Wing store and leave with the old brogans in the box. :034: Cheers, T
