Richa Adventure Waterproof Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
These boot are brilliant, they are made well and of good quality leather, the sole is stitched on so they can be repaired in the future (so many boots have glued on soles). They are a bit stiff and will take some breaking in but that is a good sign to me. Quality at a great price.
So far so good
I purchased these with Irish weather in mind. They definitely did not disappoint. Riding a good few hours in the rain my feet were warm and dry. They are true to size, I'm a size 9, purchased a size 9 and they fit just fine. Overall I'm happy with my purchase. One thing that took a while to get used to (could be my inexperience) is getting the feel for the gear lever and the brake levers in those boots, they're on the bulky side.
Bought these boots as I have got big calves. Tried mates on they Fitted ok. Good protection built in and comfortable even after a days riding. That 4 of our group got them now. You need the next size up from your shoe size as they are a bit tight otherwise. Sportsbike even price match. Next day delivery can't be bad. Would recommend boots
Great quality Very comfortable insole. Love the style (they don't look like wellie boots like most boots available for women) Absolutely excellent price I'm a size 4 (37) but chart says this is a 38. I usually buy a size up but bought the 38 and it fits perfectly. Haven't tried them in the rain yet as still on Lockdown (May2020) but I'm confident they will keep me dry.
Good value boot
Saw the previous reviews about sizing but found that 44 (I take a 10) was suitable for me (if initially a little on the snug side). If I had gone for 45 I am concerned that they would be too loose when fully broken in. Comfortable and have so far proved to be completely waterproof. A good budget priced waterproof boot. Excellent service from SBS who got both sizes in before I went over to try them on.
Sure footed and dry to boot!
Usually take 7.5 footwear. Ordered Size 8 (42) and perfect fit. Have recently found my feet slipping sometimes on wet tarmac at lights etc but these boots have thick soles which inspire confidence. Not had a buckle fitting before but after a couple of uses they seem easy to use. Not been subjected to our extremely wet season yet but I think they will stand up to it and the height of the boots gives plenty of room for waterproofs to overlap giving better waterproof protection.
Dry feet again
Purchased the size 43 like I had done before but had to return and get the 44 not sure what's happened to the sizes (I would assume at 45 my feet have stopped growing and yes I wore the normal socks I always wear) Feet are now dry, the boots look good and the thick sole and grippy tread gives extra confidence on the wet awful British roads which I'm sure in some countries would be classed as off road with the state of the pot holes and gravel lying around. Will certainly buy again. Sportsbikeshop excellent as usual in all departments, cheers
So good, this is my 2nd pair!
My last pair have ridden across Europe to Austria and this year, to Spain. So a little tired now. But I love these boots so much I bought another pair for forthcoming trips. Great fit for a lady biker, very comfortable for riding long days and not too bad for walking around too - bonus! I feel particularly protected whilst wearing them even after the odd gravel spill!
My Second Pair
Very good boots at a decent price. This is in fact my third pair, unfortunately the first pair had to be replaced after a few months due to a fault on one of the catches. They were replaced FOC with no fuss by Sportsbikeshop. The next pair have lasted me three years and nearly 30,000 miles but the tread is wearing down although not worn out. So this latest pair are a Xmas present to myself, they will be used next year for my tours to Burgundy, Spain & Portugal. All three pairs have always stayed waterproof.
Best foot forward.
I needed some new boots to replace my retired richa tourytype ones. They gave good service but went slightly senile towards the end. Like my Aunty Vera. I ride a CRF through the winter time so fancied a boot which would be waterproof, fit properly, look the part and not cost the national debt of noovarvooalandia. After reading some reviews and looking at what other old farts in the TRF were wearing, I thought I'd give these a go. I ordered size 9. Received size 9. And guess what? They fit. With normal long socks which no doubt the children will replace this Christmas. Quality of boot is fine. Little stiff but I think that's arthritis. And I have some repair work to one ankle. Buckles seem more than adequate and the velcro closure has plenty of velcroness. Tread is purposeful. In summary the boots are more than adequate. Undoubtedly better than my capabilities off piste and should last for a while. Oh ..as usual, sportsbikeshop delivered immediately, were the most competitive price anywhere and I used my voucher from my last purchase too. Thanks .
Lasted 2 years
I've had these boots for just over 2 years now. They've been good up until a long weekend trip to the Ardennes last month! On the way home we rode through a torrential storm and it became apparent that they were no longer waterproof! The flexible fabric in the shin area has worn and the fabric is cracking and stitching coming loose. I expected these boots to last longer as they are made from leather, but the problem is they have also used other man made fabrics which never last very long! So all not great and don't expect them to last if you ride daily in all weather conditions.
Once I got the right size, got the 42 but just a bit tight, returned and tried the 43 which is a good fit in the winter with thicker socks on but thinner socks now the warmer weather is here they are a wee bit loose but then again I don't walk far with them. Haven't had wet feet yet and I ride a lot in the rain. They are certainly warmer in winter than my old pair. They are comfy when walking though, a couple of bits round ankle are still nipping a bit but I have a pair of hiking boots for 10 years and hiked over 3000km and they still hurt - just my ankles I presume. I did have to move the gear lever slightly as I kept missing gears. No problems for me with the ski type fastening and a nice large Velcro area at top.
