Check out the Forma Adventure Boots as its available in black now...

http://www.formaboots.com/site/sched...peedway&id=121

I saw the new Forma Adventure recently and it's oiled full grain leather finish looks very premium like BMW boots. It was also very light and more road oriented with an off road look (vs say the Sidi Adventure).

But compared to something very similar like the Alpinestars Scout, I personally find the Forma Adventure much nicer looking for probably similar money.

I have the opportunity to buy a "demo" pair of the brown Adventure for only 160$ CDN...I imagine that I should jump on this, right?

It's too bad no one dealers here in the USA seem to want to handle these.

I tried them on at the Long Beach show. They seemed to run a tiny bit smaller for me. They were super comfortable to walk on right away. Protection didnt seem that high to me.Though i still wish I would have bought them there. Oh well.

If you want and you know your size I can order a pair from you from the MX dealer and I'll ship them to you
Here the MX dealer web site but they can't sell or ship outside of Mexico.

Bumping an old thread, but...

+2!

I was just searching for another thread and I saw this one. I had a thread here about similar boots. I got them off Darren on eBay and I'm really impressed with him/his business, so I'm plugging him on here. Basically, a very happy fleaBay customer. He deserves it. Full story on my thread...

It took a little bit to get used to shifting/breaking with a stiff boot like this but no problems shifting after I got used to using the shift pad on the boots.
I didn't wear these too much over the summer, but have been wearing them since it cooled down in the fall....I hadn't really given them a good waterproof test....until today. I had about a 20 miles ride in a pretty heavy rain and my feet stayed completely dry.

Boots

I am trying to order a pair of the Forma Brown Adventure boots from Aus poc listed above. Do these boots run true to size. I just sent a pair of Garne Oilers back in size 46 Euro to a US dealer because they were way too big. I have a 10 1/2 inch foot.

Any input on these boots would be welcomed.

Thanks.

EUR Sizing

I'm attaching a EUR size conversion chart for refference. It should be pretty close to the Forma sizing. My opinion/experience is to error on the next whole size if your in the middle.
