Forma Adventure Low Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
I love these boots they are good quality boots hard wearing made from quality materials fully waterproof and Soooooo comfortable???? I can wear them all day and when I get home I usually I would take my boots off straight away but with these it's just like wearing a comfortable pair of slippers! I highly recommend and if I should ever need to replace them I will get another pair. As far as how they fit I take a size 9 shoe but required a size 10 boot.
Best boots ever!
Seriously good boots! They're warm and waterproof, as in I drove through torrential rain here in the west of Ireland for nearly 5 hours in total last week and my feet were bone dry and warm inside them! They're so comfy I find myself wearing them when I'm walking down to the shops in stead of my runners, and the day I got them I went for a 3 hour walk down to the bog near me to break them in and literally that was all it took to break them in! ... I did have to adjust my gear lever a notch or 2 and my rear brake lever to its full extent as they are chunky, and I had to just trust using the pad on the boots to change gears(as I couldn't get my toe under the lever like sports bike boots) but this is trivial, and only took me about 30 mins in total. Massive upgrade to my previous boots, these Forma boots are very well made, easy to get on and off, clips are excellent and easy to adjust and use, look great and feel safe. If it helps with the gear/brake levers I drive a Dl650 v Strom and I'm 5ft 10 with a 32in leg to give you an idea if they would work with your bike. Can't recommend them highly enough! The
Good comfortable boots
Got next day delivery, really comfortable, fully adjustable even for my swollen legs. Checked all reviews before buying but they are what they say, comfortable, waterproof, fully adjustable, strong ,good soles. Just what I needed. Have loads of boots but these are the best by far.
Got the forma adventure long and short. Could not make my mind up. Kept the short boots more practical for my needs. Very happy with purchase. Returned long boots easy proces contact sportsbike give reason for return. Later receive email containing a free return label. Drop of at local pickup shop and that's it. Can even track the return. Money in bank next day after returned. But I love the short boots.
Boots that I can get on
At last a pair of motorcycle boots not made to fit ballerinas. These are a nice fit for wide feet. Went up 1 size and they are really comfortable. 1st ride out, 130miles on a hot day 30c, did not notice I had them on. A bit worried about the quality of the clips / straps but look OK and can be purchased as spares. Build quality looks good but time will tell.
Quality all round boots
Didn't want to look like a wanna Moto GP be, so opted for these Adventure boots. They are awesome, and you can even walk in them, they look great too. Easy to get in and off, cant fault them at all. They will last ages. Just one thing, I ordered a size 42, which is my size, but they do come up a bit small, so re-ordered a size 43, which are perfect, so suggest you go up a size. The turnaround by the Sportsbikeshop was excellent, great Customer Service.
Brought these for my girlfriend, she's 5'11 inch and played rugby so always found it hard to find motorcycle boots to fit her calves but with these she fell in love with the sight and feel of these, in her own words these feel like a cross between moon boots and slipper and I can wear them all day. She loves them so that's a plus from me.
Seem a very well made product. Good fit, if on the comfortable side (I bought my usual UK shoe size). Sturdy for adventure riding but not too cumbersome which was what I was looking for. Much easier to put on than my old BMW boots. Pleased with the purchase and service from SBS excellent as ever.
Nice but thickness caused a gear shift problem
Good comfortable boots and I like the dirt bike look even though I never go off road, but one problem I had was that upward gear changing proved awkward because of the large thickness of the combined sole and upper part of the boot. It was much harder to get my toe under the shift lever to move up a gear compared with my other much thinner boots and I may have to adjust the position of the lever to accommodate this. But doing so would create a further problem in that the raised gear lever would then make downshifts more awkward as I'd have to lift my foot further than before from the rest. Also, I won't be wearing these Forma boots all the time and in warmer weather will often want to wear my more lightweight thinner boots. In that case, if do adjust the lever for the Forma boots, I'd need to adjust it back again. I don't want to have to keep moving the gear lever every time I use different boots so for this reason I have to give them a less than perfect score from my point of view. This is on my Triumph Street Scrambler but it may be that other bikes can accommodate these very thick boots for gear shifting without adjusting the lever position.
