Forma Adventure Boots - Brown
Customer Product Reviews
The search for the perfect boots has ended!
Highly impressed with the Forma Adventure boots. So much so, I chose these over the Sidi Adventure 2 Gore-Tex boots in a side by side at home try on comparison. I am a size 10 shoe size, with wide feet, so I generally wear Clarke's wider firmest shoes. The Forma Adventures just felt right the moment I tried them on. I went for EU size 45. No heel float and enough wiggle room for the toes with a medium thick pair of socks. Boots don't feel loose wearing thinner socks either. I feel stable footed and very comfortable wearing the Forma Adventures. Not clumsy or lead footed. It's like my feet are comfortably and securely wrapped. I chose the black colour version and am very pleased with my choice. Also, the buckle closing method compared to the Sid Adventure 2 Gore-Tex are easier, simpler, more intuitive and smoother to use. No problems changing gear and very comfortable to walk in. Feet stayed dry and cosy riding in a downpour. And for the price and money saved compared to the Sidi Adventure 2's, it's the icing and the cherry on top. When these eventually need replacing, there'll be no messing around and it'll be another Forma pair of boots.
At last I have found the perfect boot ,having problems with race style boots and m/x boots to rigid for road use I opted for these.voted by ride magazine I thought I would go for it .first they are comfortable first time I tried them on I walked around the house with them and didn't want to take them off ,no difference in gear changing because of the design allows them to be fairley flexable without loosing the safety aspect ,the straps on the side ar adaptable for every shape of leg and foot to fit you as you like it .having one ankle damaged this was just what I needed .ironically the first day I went out with them I ot caught in the mother of all down pours on way back from wales ,90 mile from home with just my leather on not one single drop of water penetrated pass my shin .warm comfy and stylish .what more could you ask for and at a fair price aswell ,thse iam sure will last me years to come ,and when I need to I will buy no other boots
I already have a pair of the forma low boots, so,it came as no surprise that these fitted straight out of the box. I have just done a 600 mile weekend trip and the boots were great. A thick coat of dubbin softens and conditions the leather. Also keeps the leather soft and waterproof
Bought these for.longer rides out (I have a low boot for mooching around locally) and they're amazing. Extremely warm and comfortable yet solid enough to give you confidence. Plenty of adjustment in the straps for those of us with the thicker calves and plenty of flex in the ankle to allow for comfortable shifting and braking, I always feel firmly planted both on the bike and on the road when I'm feet down.
Thank you Mr Metcalf
As these are the only motorcycle boots I have ever bought I can make no comparisons, but believe what they say; these are comfortable boots. On sizing, I am normally 10.5/45.5/46. I got a pair of 46's and they fit perfectly. With a pair of walking socks they are nearly as good as walking boots to stroll around in. But most importantly they give great confidence on the bike. When you put a foot down you have a very stable, firm and grippy platform to support yourself and the bike. Problems? Well these are sturdy boots designed for protection as well as comfort. As a result I do have difficulty feeling the gear and brake levers as much as if I were wearing, say, trainers. It requires a bit more concentration to make sure you have your foot in the right position. So thank you to the redoubtable Harry Metcalf who put me on to these.
The boots arrived first thing on Monday even though I ordered on a Saturday , excellent service They fit great & are comfortable straight away & unlike my previous off road boots are fine for walking about in Feel really secure, solid fasteners etc Absolutely delighted. (Sportsbikeshop beat the price I had found on line)
Can everyone be right? Yes they are. These are the best boots I have bought too. Order one size bigger. They are comfortable straight out of the box. They are waterproof and warm. Grip well on our wintry wet road surfaces and provide plenty of protection without feeling like ski boots. Superb.
Fit and comfort spot on...
Spot on for delivery although I was advised they were out of stock but arrived a few days later. Chunky boot but lighter than my Alpinestars touring boot and so supple straight out of the box. I went up a size which as advisable and although I am normally a 44 the 45 fitted with 2 pairs of socks perfectly. Grippy sole with plenty of tread.
Comfy out of the box but still supportive and reasonably protective. Warm and dry at 0°C and in a couple of pretty big downpours. Chunky as mentioned by others, and not the kind of boots you'd wear all day off the bike, but not too clunky. First pair were slightly damaged but return process was quick and painless as ever.
Amongst the best
Really comfortable, wide footbed but not quite enough for me and doesn't deform as robust. 3 buckles work well but hardship for short journeys. Good calf room with velcro for snug fit. Comfortable to walk in, no squeaks. But big brutes to wear not for dancing!
