    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.

    The Gaerne's are excellent. They are not as popular as the Sidi's, and a little less stiff. I feel they fit more people, better, and are just as well made. Still actually made in the Gaerne factory is Coste, not even in a satellite.

    The Formas are also nice. A little lighter, fit just as well. More internal reinforcements. Not available here though. Bummer.

    It follows Gaernes, which is 10% off. I saw a few of those ads on Monday, can't touch 'em. Go get 'em.

    I couldn't find the Adventures but I was able to find the predecessor (I think) which is the Forma ATV1. These are the first "riding" boots I have bought so not much to compare them to. Took them out on the bike and they are nice and comfortable. 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 have the ATV1 boots as above and they are great boots! I've been shin deep in water on the pegs and come out with dry feet. They have enough give in them to walk comfortably and have withstood some pretty serious abuse over the time I've had them.

    They look identical to the 'Adventure' model.

    As a matter of fact, as of this week, I do!! I will have review samples of the Forma Adventure and Forma Boulder any day day now. The Adventure looks great but the Boulder has a cool removable waterproof liner. I am going to compare them, and would not be at all surprised if they became available in the US sooooon.......................

    I'm also interested in these boots. Are they as stiff around the ankles as regular MX boots? Say, like the Forma Dominator? I'd say by the looks of it that these boots are more 'comfy'. And there's no steel toeplate, is that a disadvantage?

    FWIW,

    I just pick-up some Forma Street riding boots at Americade.... CIMA International, the primary distributor for Nolan, seems to be carrying them (pretty full line, from what could tell). Couldn't find their website for the boots, but here's their Nolan website with contact info:
