They look awesome and perfect for my needs as I might be able to get them adapted due to an old injury.
Do you mind me asking where you got them from?

Thanks

Ive had the Forma adv high for 3 seasons now and they are great. Comfortable for riding sitting or standing, decent protection, good walking boot (not stiff) waterproof. I have found it best to wear compression socks as well.

I have the Forma High and I really like them. Wore them for 14-16 hours per day on a recent 2 week trip and no complaints at all.

+1 on Gaerne. Probably the only "Italian" boots still made in Italy. Good quality, good fit, do the job. I'm quite big around the calf and find many boots that fit my foot size to be too tight in that area, but Gaernes usually fit me pretty well.

Thanks guys, tomorrow I'll have a chance to get out and try some more of your suggestions, I'm finding that trying to get the right Boots is almost harder than finding a good helmet

I'm torn between the following two:

TECH 10 BOOT


TOUCAN GORE-TEX® BOOT

I've got the Sidi Adventure goretex and they survived 800km highway in full rain! I'm still getting cold thinking about it....

I've got a set of Tech 3's and I really like them. They are great boots but not super easy to get out of. Getting in is no problem and they ride really great on the bike. Walking around is a bit stiff and if I could do it again I would have gone with something geared towards adventure riding a bit more, i.e. you're gonna get off your bike and walk on a trail/forest/muck at some point.

As I'm about a 90/10 rider right now I just decked myself out in street gear but will probably start crossing over at some point to more adventure suited gear.

The bonus is that they are a $250 boot on closeout at Revzilla for $180 right now. Revzilla isn't the cheapest but their site is laid out great, they have a cashback system, and their customer service is top notch.

My wife noted that everyone that works in their office rides a motorcycle!

When I'm in a car I can't wait to get there. When I'm on a bike I can't wait to not get there. -RR
