Falco Fenix Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Very comfortable and underrated boots
Very comfortable on and off the bike. Great feedback and feel from the soles. Easy to put on and off after breaking them in (a couple of rides). Yes, the ankle clicks a little, which is slightly off putting and you are constantly worried you are breaking something. They fit true to size. Bit of a struggle when trying to stuff jeans on the inside. I did have one screw pop off one of the ankle protectors. M4x6mm just in case you need a spare..... and while I was at it, I put some thread lock in all the other screws, just in case.
Poor torsion control system.
Boots are comfy and would be good for people with wider foot, as there's quite a bit of space in them. True size. What makes them very bad is the torsion control system. It's a plastic plate that slides on a tiny plastic knob. They are clicking when walking and more importantly brakes very quickly. My pair was send back 3 times for repair and only last few rides after repairs. As always customer service was exceptional and on the end Boots were exchanged for totally different brand.
Lovely comfy boots!
SO comfy! Right from the off, we were surprised at how comfortable they felt even before wearing in. They look ace too. Fit true to size, I'm normally a 7 and they fit comfortably with normal socks, plenty of room. Good quality boots, they look like they will wear well. The toe slider doesn't quite fit snugly on one side, that's the only criticism.
So far, so good
Nice and comfortable boots and seem to keep the rain out. A small niggle seem to be the plastic ankle protectors which sometimes make an annoying clicking noise when walking, which ensures everyone around is "notified" of your presence - not good for 007-type of jobs..
Firstly got these in the sale. £250 down to £150 so really happy with that. Boots fit to size for me and feel really supportive. Feet not getting cold and only way to gauge waterproofing is that feet didn't get wet when washing salty crappy mess off bike after riding. Well made look great.
Amazing boots for the price. Completely waterproof and they offer great protection. Ordered my normal size but they were too small so used the amazing returns service here to get one size up. They had a bit of extra space in the heel area but that got solved by adding soles. After 30min-1h of riding under 5 degrees you can feel the cold if you're wearing just normal socks but happy with that as it fits my commute and I can get some thermal socks if I need. Really recommend them.
Excellent boot, very comfortable, fully waterproof , stylish, one thing the vertical braces sometimes click if your not walking correctly (feet out) so also correcting the way I walk.. LOL . so not a bad thing and worth every penny . Seriously considering buying another pair for if and when and if these expire.
