  • This extremely durable boot is made with full grain oiled leather. It features an injection molded front shin guard and three alloy buckles.
  • It is also waterproof thanks to a breathable membrane liner Gaerne calls "Gaerne Drytech". Fitted between the outer leather and the lining the membrane allows perspiration to pass through but will not allow water to penetrate. Keeping the foot warm and dry.
  • A gum rubber sole completes the task for great feel and control of the bike.

Qualiy Boot!!

Comments On Feb 08, 2013:This boot, out of the box is the most comfortable boot I have ever worn. It has probably the best sole for slick surfaces. It seriously fit and was easy to walk in right out of the box. It is true to the size I wear. When I took a chance on this boot I needed a something between a Motocross boot & everyday work boot. I believe this boot is in Gaerne's trials riding class of boot. I ride hard trails, but needed a boot I could walk in when I'm helping buddies with their bikes on rides. It offers enough protection for harder trail rides. It is not recommended for any Motocross. There is just not enough ankle support for that. The quality is second to none. I watched a review online that said you could re-sole them. All I can say is give this boot a try. It's not the norm, but performs great!!

Additional Comments On Apr 07, 2013:I"m getting back on to further my review after 300 miles of riding. My view has not change one bit. This is the most fantastic, most comfortable trail riding boot I have worn ever!!!! Now I can see why it's been around so long. Considering that most people trail ride I'm shocked I don't see them more often out on the trail.

Additional Comments On Oct 29, 2013:Well, it's been about 1200 miles later on these boots. They look a little worn, but I re-oil them often and they look great. I've added the gaerne metal toe guards on each boot to keep the sole and leather together. On all of my nasty, knarly, singletrack riding I have only had a hand full of times I thought I need more protection. All in all still one of the better purchases I have ever made for dirt biking.

Additional Comments On Mar 09, 2014:Well, just another update. Just got back from another trip from Moab, Utah. Over 100 miles of riding rocky, unforgiving terrain. Boots still perform how I expect. Never felt once that my feet were under protected for trail riding. Reconditioned the leather when I got home & they look good as new.

Additional Comments On Jun 18, 2014:I have just completed another spring, riding in these boots. I have 1600 miles now on these boots. Over the last 1600 miles I can only recall one time my feet got wet wearing these boots. It was a time when I spent 45 minutes in a raging stream rescuing a fellow riders bike. The only way your feet will get wet is if water goes over the top of the boot. This fact alone has changed the way I look at motocross boots for trail riding. Everyone I ride with that have motocross boots get soggy feet if they dunk them in a deep creek. They all ride through streams with there feet in the air to keep'm dry. I hope Rocky Mountain carries this boot for a long time.

Great feel right out of the box!

Comments On May 25, 2014:I just received these boots and threw them on to see how they feel....WOW! They feel like a great pair of Danners from the get go. I'm not a racer so I didn't need the protection like my old Tech 8s have, and as others have said, you can wear these all day without wishing you could take them off!
With my Tech 8s, I couldn't wear them all day without pain.
I think these are comfortable enough to wear while riding my Victory on the street or my KTM going down the trails.
So far I don't see a downside to them at all!

Leather is the only protection you'll get.

Comments On Sep 26, 2013:If youâ??ve done any research on these at all, you know the Gaerne Balance Oiled boots have a cult-like following. Itâ??s deserved. The quality of the leather is phenomenal, the craftsmanship superb, the fit-and-finish is outstanding. They are gorgeous to behold. All that being said, I returned mine. Why? One word: Protection. In my opinion, these boots offer no more protection than an ANSI work boot, if that. Yes, they have the shin guard and a work boot doesnâ??t, but the ANSI boot would have a steel/composite toe and these donâ??t. Some might say the midsoles of the Balance boots are stronger, but if the work boot has a steel shank I seriously doubt it. Having a friend punch you in the toe or ankle bone while wearing these would result in you hopping around and cursing (unless your friend is a wuss) and thatâ??s nothing compared to what a stump, rock, or the frame of your bike can do. To be fair, Gaerne designed these for trials riding, and as far as I know thatâ??s done at very low speeds and on lighter bikes. I didnâ??t expect these to be motocross boots by any means, but I expected something more than just a single layer of leather around the ankle/heel/toe areas. There is not even a wear pad where the shifter contacts the boot! Unless you only do VERY light off-road riding, I would strongly suggest considering something a little more protective. I hate only giving these 3 stars, because in a world of mass-produced junk footwear they truly are works of art, but I intend to use my boots, not put them in a display case.

Very comfortable for wide feet

Comments On Jun 24, 2013:These boots are awesome. They feel secure and solid, but what is more important to me is that they are incredibly comfortable for my wide feet. They fit true to size as far as the number size, but they feel like an EE or so in width. They are comfortable out of the box, and really comfortable after a few days of wear. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Great boot.

Comments On Mar 26, 2013:Comfortable and give you solid protection. Leather got grinded down in a few spots but in moab but I think these will wear better on dirt trails where I plan to use them.
