  • 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.

The perfect boot for me!

Comments On Apr 08, 2016:These boots fit true to size. They are very comfortable to ride / push your bike. I live in western Colorado and the terrain can get pretty technical out here. Being able to walk in the boots is a big plus for me. I have had some pretty hard hits with rocks and stumps and no injuries! Probably not the best boot for MX, but it is the best for trail riding. I added steel toe protectors to help with protection to the boot. Highly recommended!

started leaking

Comments On Nov 29, 2015:These boots have been great and waterproof for 3 seasons and hundreds of miles in the woods, but now water gets thru, I don't know why. It doesn't come over the top as I wear water proof over the boot pants. No tears or holes anywhere. I've taken care of them with oil. I think the waterproof lining has been compromised somehow. I had to wear bread bags on my feet the last couple rides to keep them from getting soaked. But, these boots have been great until recently. I will contact Gaerne and ask what could have happened before I buy another pair. That said, I think they are the only boots to wear. Especially if you end up walking like I did yesterday. Very comfortable with good traction on hills.

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.

Additional Comments On Oct 08, 2014:I'm positive this is the only boot I will wear ever again for my dirt bike riding. I bought another set of MX style boots because I thought I needed more protection. Silly me! I should have bought another pair of these boots! I have almost 150 hours of riding gnarly single track on these things. About 2500 miles. I love them as much now as when I first slipped them on. They are holding up great!!!!

Additional Comments On May 26, 2015:It's spring of 2015. I know I seem to drone on about this boot, But it keeps impressing me. It has survived another spring in the mud and water. I keep reconditioning them and they're still water proof. Just amazing a boot this old is still water proof. Also the dang sole of this boot looks great still. I have probably 190 hours of Gnarly riding on these boots. Just Amazing!!!!!!!!!

Additional Comments On Oct 15, 2015:Well, it's October of 2015. I have completed another summer of riding with this boot. I still condition them with a boot grease & they still look great. Here in another 3 months I will have had these boots three years. I've been through heck and back with these boots. They are still my favorite riding boots of all time for trail riding.

Best Dual Sport Boot money can buy

Comments On Sep 05, 2014:I have tried many boots prior to choosing the Gaerne. Most boots have a clunky feel, are stiff and weigh much. The Gaerne boots are like a natural extension of your calf and foot. They are soft, they allow you to walk without feeling as if you are wearing skiing boots and often I forgot that I was wearing them after a full day of riding. These boots seem to balance temperature very well, and they offer the protection I a looking for. The sole offers great traction and the retro look is appreciated. Waterproof? Yep. I waded shallow streams to assess the depth before riding through. The boot was submerged for probably five consecutive minutes and did not allow a single drop to enter. My next boot will be a Gaerne. Spend the cash, it is worth it.

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!
