Forma Adventure Boots

Does anyone have any first hand knowledge/use of this boot.
I checked with FormaUSA and they are only importing 1 style of boot for now...I know weird. Does anyone know where I could buy a pair online (that will ship to the U.S)?

Nice boot, love my Forma Dominators these would be slick. I haven't seen a euro dealer that shows them in stock yet. Might try M&P Direct in the UK, I've ordered from them before and they carry Forma.

Thanks I Emailed them to ask if they could get them. I also emailed Forma euro and asked where I could order from.

Let us know if you find a place to buy them. I'd be interested in a pair.

I do. Good boots. Nicely made. Comfortable.

That said, little 400 mile round trip ride this weekend and I reached for my old Sidi's. Not sure why.

Been thinking about selling the Forma's but can't quite bring myself too yet.

sizing

In peoples experience, does the Forma Adventure boot run a bit short compared to other brands ?

My foot measures 11" .
I thought that would equate to EUR45 but a couple of Vendors have recommended size EUR 46.

3 vendors recommended EUR 46 and they were right.
Received the EUR 46 Forma Adventures in the mail today.
Good fit.

Now that the Forma Adv. have been around for a while what's the verdict on the life span of the soles?
And has anyone had or attempted to have them resoled?

I'm looking to replace my Oxtar Infinities. I don't wear them as much as I should because they are about a 1/4"-1/2" too small. They are a size 45. Do the Formas fit about the same? If so, a little bit bigger would be perfect.

Soles are good, mine have lasted about three years. I've worn through the stitching on the inside of the ankles and had that patched, but the soles, not an issue. I have metal footpegs as well, not rubber.
