RST Adventure 2 WP Boot - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Good boots but...
This is the 4th time I have bought the RST Adventure. But these are going back. The first time I rode with them in the rain my feet were wet at the end of a 25 minute ride. Also they seem to have less material around the calf as the 2 parts of velcro hardly touch each other so keep coming undone. Will have to try some other makes now
Good boot, but leaked on first trip
Bought these especially for my first foreign trip away, but unfortunately they leaked in the first heavy shower!!!! I am normally a 42, but 44 fitted best, get two sizes and send one back. Easy to return items. Nice boot otherwise
Weird fitting on me
I am not gonna give a 1 star review because the boots is good and looks solid, my issue has been the fitting. I am a size 8 in normal shoes and I got the boots in size 9, they were weirdly large on the foot and too tight around the calf. Not impressed to be honest but that's my personal experience, if the fit would have been better I'm sure they would have been wonderful boots.
I bought my usual size and the boots fitted perfectly. The closure system works really well and is simple to operate. Most impressive though is that these are actually totally waterproof. I did 820 miles over two days from my home in Edinburgh around the west highlands and back. Day one it rained solid the whole day. Day two was slightly better however I was caught in two biblical thunderstorms. Feet remained completely dry. The sole is very thick so feel is not a good as it could be but I'll put up with that for dry feet.
Good but not great
Good boots kept my feet dry in the August downpours. Flitted perfectly under my textiles but. There not very good for wearing over leather pants it's a very tight fitting on the calf. They could do with another strap higher up. But well worth the money
Great Adventure boots
These boots are comfortable and performed well recently in the driving rain keeping ne dry and really warm, in fact a tad too warm on the hot days we have had this year. I bought a size up from my normal size and they fit great. I would highly recommend these boots for quality and value to anyone they are really great .
Torrential downpour - Check!
These boots are a replacement for another make that failed after 18 months. Only had these new boots less than 3 weeks before going on a trip to the Scottish Islands and the north of Scotland. Like most boots they do hurt a wee bit at first but comfy to walk in, I must have sticky out ankle bones as all boots hurt there at first. The weather for the first 4 days, showers at times but on the fifth day it was torrential rain being blown with 40+ mph winds sideways across the A9, visibility was down to a few metres. Then it was just heavy rain for the next 140 miles home. I got home checked my feet and they were just the slightest bit damp but I honestly think that was probably sweat having had the boots on for 9 hours. I think these boots stood up to a very good test on their first outing and so far I am happy with them. Now just to keep them protected.
Greal adventure boots
Haging read other reviews on the fitting of these boots, I purchased a size bigger as when your wearing thick socks these can feel a bit tight. I have yet to break these in proper but they are a good fit but can be a bit fiddly to buckle up the straps, so bit of patience is required. Great looking boot for the price.
All good so far
Bought these to go with my new rst adventure clothing. Had previously tried some Alpinestar boots but couldn't get them on under the trousers! These seem just as sturdy but not such bulky fastenings. The fit is also better, I have wide size 10 and 45 is perfect. Easy to use bike controls as well. They are destined for two weeks in India so will get a proper workout there!
Really nice boots
After much deliberation and getting a tiger I opted for these boots which were great from start and very comfy Have done 200 miles in them at 11 degrees and very warm and sturdy. The buckles are a bit flimsy but do the job .One size up as advised works for me Yet to use them in very wet conditions and they maybe warm in the summer. I was a bit worried about gear change as the soles are thick but had no real problems Very pleased with purchase and customer service as ever
Nice boot and great service
I had a pair of RST boot before so went for the same size. These have a lot more padding in the calf area. Customer service were brilliant, they measured the next size up and swapped out the pairs. The boot fit well, I have not worn them in heavy rain yet but very happy so far.
Good boots and great service
Initially purchased my usual size, but these boots are definitely on the small size, so as per others - go up a size. Service from Sportsbikeshop brilliant. Phoned them, and they reserved me the next size up and new pair sent to me immediately my return was received. Boots are well made and strong. Good value for money, and should hold up well. Only thing is that I find the tops a little tight on my calves, but not uncomfortably so. Recommended
As others have said go one size up. I would have struggled to get fat right foot into an 11. checked for flexibility and fit by clumping up and downstairs much to her indoors annoyance but proved to be very comfortable. Boots were bought by me, for me, tested by me but still had to be wrapped for Santa to surprise me on Christmas morning !!!!
RST adventure 2 boot.
I bought these boots to replace my last pair which lasted 5 years of riding 20miles per day 6 days a week. On the 8th day of wearing the RST in 20minutes of rain they let in water through the bottom of the Velcro flap even though they where done up tight under my waterproof textile jeans. Very disappointed but they were £200 cheaper than my last pair so I guess my expectations where unreasonable. A shame because they were comfortable, looked and felt much more expensive than the £100 price tag.
