Any input on these boots would be welcomed.

Thanks.
Go at least one, probably two sizes up. I went up one, they fit now, but took a while to break in. Two up would probably be better (I could wear thicker socks). The sizing was accurate, I checked by measuring, but you need more room in a relatively stiff boot.

boots

Hey Guys thanks for the feed back. I am waiting for Brain at Atomic-Moto to see about bring some of these into the country. If that does not work I have a new friend in Oz that said He would help me out.

I have sent several emails to Forma and the Oz retailer to no avail.

The ebay poc was out of my size.

Thanks again and I will let you know how it turns out.

Whitehorse and Indysuperebike both have them; don't have the web link at the present, but you can find them online. Just ordered a pair from Indy; $300, the discount coupon is no longer valid, but they gave me free shipping. Whitehorse was about $20 more expensive, no free shipping.

Just saw this thread in new posts, oddly enough I started it haha.
To sum up my experience with the forma atv...
Very comfortable boot.. waterproof for a while. BUT
When I had to ride for hours in the rain they were not waterproof even when treated. I ended up selling them in the flea market and buying a pair of tcx gor-tex.

I pulled the trigger last week and have to say they are awesome. so comfy and stiff (rough) enough for what I do. I really appreciate them and I'm happy to use them this winter.
