Any news on smaller sizes? Like EU39 or US men's 6?

They are not coming in that size, sorry. They can be special-ordered from Italy though. This sounds worse than it really is.

Soph9, I literally just special-ordered a pair for another inmate here. They will be airfreighted from Italy, should take 2 weeks. She happened to luck ou, as Gaerne was placing an airfreight order for some other stuff, so the freight cost was only $20. IF YOU WANT THEM, place your order in the next hour (sorry to rush you) and I will pass it along to Italy. I have the price set to reflect the additional sipping for that size.

PM me if you have questions.

Just wondering about the right size for us...we wear 39 in Rev It boots....39 in TCX, 8 in woman's sizing but i guess we are too late to get our order now. Also, I did try your site...it would not let me change my shipping address once I made a sign in name.

Hi Soph.

Thanks for the interest. Maybe next time, will do my best. AFA the ship-to address, there is a box to check during step 1 of the checkout process that lets you do this. It's not easy to see.

Thanks,

BP

I got mine yesterday from Brian at Atomic-Moto. These boots are top-notch! I have 2 pairs of boots to compare these to. A pair of Alpinestars Tech 3s for my KLX 250s and a pair of Icon Accelarants that I use with my V-Strom. I wanted more protection on the road and these are the perfect solution! I had my eyes on the Alpinestars Scouts but I heard Brian on "The Dual Sport Podcast" telling everyone how the Gaerne G-Adventure boots are the better choice if you plan to walk more when off of your bike. I called him and he was great to deal with and even told me which size would fit me best. (size 10 for my US 9 1/2). I wore them last night around the house and they are comfy right out of the box and the buckles work a lot easier than my Tech 3s. I'll give a report after my first ride with them. I'm happy with my decision and thankful I heard Brian on Craigs new Podcast!
I emailed Brian to thank him and I found out I'm the first person in North America with these boots.

I rode about 250 miles yesterday with these boots. It was about 50 to 60 degrees during my ride with winds around 15mph. These boots are exactly what I have been looking for! Shifting the Wee-Strom was a little more challenging at first, but it took about 10 min. to get used to it. They are very comfortable and seem like they are about 60% broken in already. These boots with my riding pants kept me very warm and comfortable. I can tell I will have no problems with wind, cold or rain. I walked quite a bit also and there were no issues. Bottom line: I forgot I had new boots on! That says it all right? I wanted a waterproof boot that would protect me and last. I needed to find a boot that was a combo of my Icon Accelarants and Alpinestars Tech 3s. The new Gaerne G-Adventures exceeded my expectations. I'll report back after the first rain!

Hi Brian,
I was just checking he website and it seems like the pics of the G-Adventure is an old one, can you please confirm? Also how do you compare this to the Sidi Adventure Rain? Do you have them in stock in size 12? Or 11.5?
Thanks much, Martin

Hi Martin. I have corrected the photo. They are softer than the Sidis, and the molded sole (as opposed to welt sole is more flexible. Don't have them yet, due into port this week.

Brian,
Could you get a pair size 12 in Oakland, CA by March 15? If so I would like to order a pair please.
Thanks much,
Martin
