First thoughts on my Forma Terra Boots Initially I was planning on wearing my Sidi Crossfire 2 TA boots for my trip to Deadhorse. I wore them around the house daily for break-in and out on rides with the KLR. The Sidi boots squeaked so bad that I used silicone spray to try and quite them a bit and then used some Snow Seal on the leather and that seems to do the trick. Wearing the Sidi boots felt more like a pair of "ski boots" and I could not see wearing them while trekking through Canada and Alaska. Whereas the Forma Terra boots felt like a pair of broke-in hiking boots that I could wear both on-the-bike and for extended walkabouts while off-the-bike. They feel broken-in already probably due to the leather chassis and built in flex zones front and back. Bottom-line, these boots will go with me to Deadhorse. They are all day comfort, waterproof, and offers better foot protection (not to the same level lateral support as the Sidi Crossfires) but I'll take all day comfort when I have to live in them for 30+ days.
