Howdy gang, This is just a quickie review because when I was considering the purchase of these boots, I didn't find much in the way of reviews here on advrider. As far as adv bikes, I have a KTM 400 XCW and 950SE. I've been using some medium priced Oxtar boots and they were just adequate. Around 6 years ago during a low speed low side, my 950SE landed on my right leg and mashed my lower right leg down onto my right foot. I ended up with a moderate ankle sprain and a kind of bone bruise in the ankle joint. Over the years, the bone bruise has never gone away and ill placed dabs with my foot re ignited the pain. Also unexpected g-outs and impacts on both the moto and mountain bike hurt in the same spot. In the last year, that pain seemed to be getting worse. I changed the position of my foot on footpeg to where I never put the ball of my foot on the peg (couldn't do that on the mountain bike) just the instep. That helped. I tried pivot pegz so I could leave my ankle in a more open position and that helped some as well. But I still got a fair amount of pain. Next up - try some new boots. I have a moderately wide forefoot - E width. I looked around here for some reviews but didn't find a lot on the Gaerne 10's or 12's here on advrider. I found this: http://www.motorcyclejazz.com/Gaerne_SG12.htm . The Gaerne website had some good info: http://gaerneusa.com/shop/off-road/sg-12-motocross-boot/ and http://gaerneusa.com/shop/off-road/sg-10-motocross-boot/. I did find more reviews of the Sidi Crossfires and read those as well. I didn't want an inner boot and I'm not a fan of the running shoe style boots so it seemed the Crossfires and SG10/12's were going to be it. So off to the moto candy store: Chaparral. I tried on the Crossfires and SG10 boots and they did not resist forward flex enough for my taste. The SG12's did and fit my moderately wide foot pretty well. Chaparall has a huge presence in internet sales but were not interested in matching internet prices. So online shopping I went. http://www.motorcyclecloseouts.com/insanity/27815 had the best price and they get mixed reviews. It seemed that bad reviews almost always involved returns and the good reviews were for items that didn't need to be returned so shop sizes carefully. The closeout was for a "unique" color combo - ktm orange and red boots for $383. Sold. The boots arrived in less than a week and before I left on a Baja trip. While I'd have preferred a trial ride or two, it wasn't to be. But my foot was in love after the first few miles of riding. The Dual Hinge design really works to prevent flexing my foot up into my lower leg. The toe box is a little bigger than my last boots but I was able to adjust my shifting technique slightly and didn't have to rotate the shift lever (I may move it one tooth in the future). Walking takes some getting used to as it uses a rocker type sole but once accustomed to the rolling motion, walking is not too bad. You wouldn't want to hike miles but you could probably manage 1 or 2. The next day of riding was almost twelve hours in (and mostly out of) the saddle on the No Wimps Trail in Baja. Not one single twinge in that ankle bone. I had 4 or 5 low speed tumbles into boulders and the boots never failed to protect. The only slight issues were the grip panels sometimes caught on plastic body work and after standing for long periods, my feet hurt a little. I'll be experimenting with some different insoles or maybe just an arch support. One thing I quickly learned to appreciate was how easy they were to put on/ take off. The buckles are really nice and when these are your only footware for a few days (I lost a flip flop), you really appreciate little things like that. So I give them a big thumbs up when your rides tend toward the dirtier side of advrides.
