Brillliant pair of boots very comfy and water resistant I know cause I've been out in the pouring rain in them already. Very sturdy too and to my mind also very well made. Excellent value for the price paid. That and they are good looking boots too

Brilliant fit

Top quality product. Light and flexible to wear. Look good too.
We haven't had any rain since I bought them, but the membrane is as high as the boot. Always a good sign.

Comfortable, warm and dry
24 May 2023 by William F
Thought long and hard about Adventure boots but glad I went for these Forma tourer ones instead of other types of Adventure boots. These are not so stiff and no probs walking in them from the off.
They are robust, comfy from outset and keep your feet dry and warm.
I'm a UK 10 so went for Euro 45 which I think worked out at 10.5 UK, and they fit perfect. I never wear thick socks and my feet are really warm in them.
So far so good with all clip etc very easy to get the boots on/off.

Forma ADV Tourer Leather Boots - Brown
23 May 2023 by Steve R
The boots arrived within a couple of days and the ankle protector on the left boot was misshapen and rubbed against the ankle. A quick message to the guys and a swap was arranged. The whole process took 4 days over a bank holiday weekend, the best service I have ever had from an online purchase.

The boots themselves are really comfortable, based on other reviews I went up a size. I haven't tried them in the wet yet, but so far I am extremely happy.

Forma Touring Boots

So far it's been dry weather riding with these on, but super comfortable, they feel well made, look great and give you some extra confidence in their ankle and general strength.
Would happily recommend

Like slippers
06 April 2023 by Ronald W
This is the first pair of Forma boots and I thought they would be a nightmare to break in especially being adventure boots. I was wrong.
From the first time putting on they were like a pair of slippers, extremely comfortable for riding and walking in between riding. Great fit fastenings seem very good and nice comfy lining. I brought them online and they are true to fit which is a big bonus. For the price, you get a good standard of quality boot that does as it says on the box. Highly recommended for comfortable waterproof touring boots

Well made boots
05 April 2023 by Nibor
Only done 300 miles in the dry, so just 4 stars at moment. Very good leather and build quality and like the two velcro fastenings with only one clip. Definitely go a size up, I'm a 42 but ordered a 43 from others' advice. Ankle guard digging in a bit on right boot when walking, (about 1.5 miles), hopefully will ease with wear, but not noticeable riding bike, I'm using Leder Gris a clear wax from Altberg to preserve the leather and repel water. They look great and are pretty minimalist. Recommended.

Update:

I'm about to return the above boots for the reason below.

Although I bought the boots in Feb 2023, I only tax my bike from April to September because I am a fair weather rider and only choose dry days. Last Thursday 20th July I got caught in the rain for less than an hour. It was the first time the boots had been wet, although I have ridden hundreds of miles since April. Immediately the boots felt damp, and even though the rain stopped and I rode for another five hours, when I returned home, my socks and boot interiors still felt damp.

My friend also has the same boots (although bought on ebay), and he said the first time he rode in the rain the boots were soaked though.

I have protected the boots by applying Altberg clear boot wax before every ride, to keep the leather supple and weatherproof, so it is particularly disappointing that the boots have let in water after such a brief period of rain.

They are such a comfortable pair of boots, I hope that it is just a batch problem (although my friend got his from ebay).

Outstanding quality boots
31 March 2023 by Stephen L
Only just purchased these boots, and I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality and the fit of these boots! I did look at the reviews of these boots and also asked friends that are driving Examainers and police and they a they all rate them! Been a motorcycle instructor and been out in all weathers week in week out, I would definitely recommend and are well worth the 5 stars!

Quality and comfort
12 February 2023 by Tomas
This is my second Forma boots. My first pair (an Edge), still in good use, is lower and with laces.
This pair is very comfortable but completely different in its feel and use. On pegs, almost unmovable unless you lift them, supper grip. They are thicker or taller also in the toe area, so gear changes is something to adjust to or you may need to adjust the lever. Still, very easy to operate.
On the break less feel so again some 'getting used to' in place.
The best part for me is the ease of putting them on and taking them off - effortless.
I tried many others and likely you know that too, with some it is a real challenge and a lot of sweat :)
So far with single sock in temps below 0, my feet remained warm and comfy. Didn't experience yet any river crossing or heavy rain with them on but those boots look very solid and well made. On description they are water proof and as for now, I believe in that :)
Currently, while riding with thermal liners some trousers might be a better fit then the others. All depends how low liner goes and how wide bottom part unzips. It is great with my new Horizon 3 H2O, because liner is high and they open up but my IXS Classic Gore-Tex pair, which is perfect in all other respects, it not so easy to lower them over the boots as it is very tight fit. But pretty good when you ride - no wind gets in :)
Finally, as some other people here mentioned, the best is to try in the shop for sizing and comfort as differences are massive between brands, models.

An interesting purchase
03 February 2023 by Shaun D
Only 4 stars at this stage, because I've had them only for 2 weeks.

I had to purchase boots quickly, as a previous pair had ripped between sole and upper, so SPORTSBIKESHOP was my first, and only consideration. No disappoint here, because they handled my return and refund without hassle - thanks Customer Service team!
They also dispatched these boots the evening I ordered them, and I had them the day after, a Saturday.
The boots looked great on arrival, and I'd ordered a size 43 for my slim size 9 feet.
At first, and on the first ride, with 2 pairs of socks (it was a chilly -3 ride to work) the fit was a little too snug, and I wondered if I might change them for a 44, but as I'd used them, wasn't able to send them, back.
So, at the first opportunity, I wore just the one pair of socks, and after a few days, they appeared to ease a little, being comfortable now, still the slightest tad smaller than I'm used to, but I can walk in them and the brake and gear change are not at all compromised.
I hope this helps with sizing for you.
The construction of the boots is great, and the only other issue I find, is that with slim legs, the Velcro straps at mid and high area of the boot, close with a larger, unsecured inch or so, which sticks a little inside my jeans.
Having said that, this doesn't affect the comfort of my jeans, nor the boots, and the jeans I use are thick Roadskins or Kevlar RST Pro's.

Overall then, a great touring boot, comfortable, and supple after a few days riding.
I would certainly look at Forma boots again, as I love the gentle style, the comfort, and the ride ability of them.
I would just make sure to try in store first, to size correctly.

Excellent so far…
05 December 2022 by Gerard W
These boots were super comfortable from the start. They seem both well made and designed, a good balance between ruggedness and weight/ size too. So far they've not let any water in despite some very wet and wintery conditions. They've been warm too. I suspect the sizing is small so be aware that a size larger than normal might be a more comfortable fit, especially as they're most likely to be winter boots: room for thicker socks required too! They are not cheap even at the discounted price that was on offer when I bought. I've a feeling they are going to prove that they're worth it though longer term.

Good strong comfortable boot
23 March 2022 by Peter N
Comfy from the start.... go for one size up!! Strong, good fasteners with velcro too.
Sole very substantial, grip just what you need and assists with getting feet flat too!

Not tried in wet yet but would not doubt their performance.

These are lovely
19 March 2022 by Simon B
I am a very standard UK size 8 / EU 42, but I have lost a bit of weight recently and trainers & boots that were tight, are now a bit looser. I'd read that these boots measure slightly small, and reviewers recommend going for the next size up. 43 or 42 hmm...went for the 42 and soooo glad I did.
As usual, they arrived within two days (just marvellous SBS service again) and when I first tried them on they felt a little tight around the toes. So I put on the double Doc socks and walked around the house with the boots on, adjusted to my foot width. These boots have an excellent range of adjustment, to get them to fit width-ways absolutely perfectly. I daubed some leather conditioner over the toe & tops of each boot and walked around the house with double socks on, for about a week an a half to stretch them just a little.
Then we got a sunny day. Ride-out time. And I decided to try the boots with just a normal pair of long m/bike socks.
Wow, well the boots felt just like slippers, they are so comfortable, so soft and light and tough and comfy.
I've never had a boot with buckles and the buckle on this boot is very adjustable, whether slim foot or wide, you should be able to find the right setup. There's a velcro strap around the ankle area that is very adjustable too, then the large area of velcro to tie your shin area into the boot. I can fasten mine lovely and snug, so the boot doesn't move around when I'm off the bike and walking.
The previous reviewers are correct when the say go for one size up (half a size if you can), I was just lucky my foot shrank by about half a size over the last three months, so the 'normal' size 42's worked for me.
I had to adjust the height of the gear lever on my bike as the toe of this boot is deeper than my previous Spada sports boots, but that was just a small change and now everything is in the right place,
Lovely, lovely boots. feel tough yet light and ... did I mention how comfortable they feel?
