Rocky Mountain MC on some other items, but their prices on the SG-10's are a bit ridiculous.

I've seen plenty of other sites that are selling these boots for well over $400.00 also. I paid $320.00,
got free shipping, and when I had to return the last pair, they paid for me to ship the other boots back
and still gave me free shipping to send me the SG-10's even though I added more stuff to the order.
I've found the SG10 boots on eBay for $329.00, free shipping and a 30 day return policy.

Does the size seem accurate as far as length or should I go a size larger?

In a shoe, depending on the brand, I wear a size 10 or 10.5. Mostly 10.5 though.
Before I ordered, I read that the SG-10's are a little big, so I got a size 10.
They fit just like my 10.5 shoes. And they're damn near as comfortable.

Good luck, I hope it works out for you like it did for me.

Question Big calves, Forma Adventure boots?

Can anyone give me any feedback on the Forma Adventure boot and calf size?
Please mention your foot size when replying, as a size 14 boot obviously has a wider calf than a size 8!

Thanks,
G.

One thing to remember on the sg12 vs the 10.. the upper is adjustable for the size of your leg.. I have a 19.5 calve and they just fit on the tightest spacing,, but opened up they fit nicer and I plan on going to an OTB pant next.. and the gaerne is by far the best boot I have had in a long time.. my last pair lasted 8 years of trail riding almost every weekend in spring, summer and fall.

Okay, after a lot of returns I've finally found a boot I can get into. I settled on the Gaerne SG12s. I ordered a size 12 at first since that is my true shoe size but they were extremely tight. Exchanged them for a 13 and they fit pretty well. I'm a 12-4E so it's not easy the find boots that fit, plus I have a 19" calf! They seem a little stiff but that is to be expected of a new boot.

Thought this might help someone in the same boat.

I've got 21" calves with size 11 feet and the SIDI Crossfires fit fine. They have an adjustment in the calf area.

I have a 13-4E with 19" calves. For a bargin boot the Answer Fazer are a great boot for not a lot of money. I love mine.

the s-12 has an adjustable calf area like the sidi.. I have them and have the right and left set different to see which I like better. problem is they fit really nice and I dont notice riding that they are setup different from each other and dont think about it till next time I'm suiting up to ride..

Bike Bandit has them for $107.00 which is a great buy. I'd be curious to know how well they hold up.

I'd also endorse the Gaerne SG10's

36 years of ice hockey and cycling lead to big calves. Even with knee pads on and pants tucked in, they have room to spare.

Ive got somewhat big calves as well, and wear a 13. I currently have an old pair of Tech 6 that have been really good but starting to show some age. Ive been hearing good things about the SG10 and am just about ready to order some. I thought I read somewhere that the buckle can be unscrewed and moved to several positions. Didnt see that mentioned here so just wondering.

I know the 12 front shin panel moves, not sure about the 10.

I just got to see the brand new Sidi Crossfire 2's (not released yet) and they have two adjustable spots in the upper calves. Both the front and back of the inner side panel can be opened up a bit!! Going to be a touch more than the originals but should fit an even larger calf.

BIG Calves.

Some people have big calves due to over weight, some by exercise, and others like me are predisposed due to genetics. Reducing weight does not affect my calf size at all.

I have used Alpinestars Tech 10 boots for a decade in Cambodia. They fit my feet and calfs, and they dry quick due to the bootie design. Hot, humid, lots of water riding and my feet are happy.

On other boots I have also used a velcro strap to keep my boots closed. I like using over the boot pants to help protect my lowers from abuse. Bamboo thorns in the jungle can shred a riding boot.

BTW, I did try on Gaerne sg12 boots once and they had plenty of calf room. I just like the inner bootie design for my riding environment better.

Hurray for all you BIG Calf guys on dirt bikes.

The crossfires can fit some huge calves. My calves are decent and they fit with knee guards, you have to adjust them to the larger setting. Only problem is they dont fit really wide feet well.
