Details

    The Boulder boot from Forma offers ultimate agility when it comes to trials riding. With maximum rigidity in the fully-flat sole, the foundation the Boulder boots provide allows for solid foot positioning in tricky obstacles, yet easily accommodates foot movement across the pegs without snagging. The agility only grows from there: the boots incorporate a flexible leather upper to allow the movement demanded from trials riders, making these boots some of the most comfortable riding boots on the market. Protection geared towards trials riding is incorporated into the boot in the form of toe, heel, shank and medial ankle guards, and in true trials-style, is hidden internally so that nothing can snag on the pegs, levers or any other components of the bike as you ride.

    The Forma Boulder Boots have also become a popular boot for light off-road or general riding. Some riders feel like the Forma boots are easier to ride in than your standard MX boot as they are generally much more flexible in comparison. They also tend to be more comfortable if you incorporate off-the-bike activities like walking or hiking on your ride. The Boulder boots typically breathe better than rival boots because they are not inherently waterproof, although additional waterproof booties from Forma can convert the boots to that option if desired.

    Specs:
    • Full-grain leather upper.
    • Trials anti-slip/oil rubber sole.
    • Thermoformed safety ankle shield for extra protection.
    • Rear dented heel cup to facilitate gear change when standing.
    • Shaped shin plate with air ventilation pockets.
    • Personalized suede leather heat protector.
    • Adjustable velcro closure.
    • Replaceable/adjustable GH plastic buckles.
    • Padded inner lining.
    • Polyurethane nylon reinforcements.
    • Extra soft polymer padding with memory foam.
    • Incorporated steel shank.
    • Anti-bacterial replaceable footbed with APS.

Great trials boots
I’ve put about 20 hours on these boots and really like them.

These are my first pair of trials boots so I have nothing to compare them to other than a pair of Gaerne SG 11 MX boots that I bought a few years ago.

Sizing
Standing against a wall with a ruler on the floor my foot measures 10 3/4”. I ordered a size 10 and they fit perfectly. I have wide feet and there is plenty of room. My Gaerne SG 11’s are also size 10 and the fit is similar.

Durability
I’ve worn these boots for probably 20 hours riding my trials bike and walking around in them. The sole has held up fantastically against my S3 Hard Rock foot pegs and I've had no issues with the buckles breaking or leather breaking down.

Waterproofing
I haven’t spent a lot of time in the water with these boots but I have stepped in the creek with water over my foot and my foot didn’t get wet. I haven’t put any waterproofing oil or anything on them.

Comfort
I was a bit concerned about walking in these because a review video said they had a very stiff sole. They don’t feel any different than a work boot to me when I’m walking. The “stiff sole” is actually a bonus on my trials bike since I’m standing all the time.
I debated getting these or the Gaerne trials boot but read that the Gaerne sole was not quite as stiff and can cause discomfort in some people after a while.
Compared to my MX boots these boots were broken in out of the box. Very flexible and comfortable.
I’ve been wearing these in the heat of summer and have not noticed my feet being too hot or sweating more than usual.

Protection
Trials boots can’t compare to a MX boot for protection but they are significantly lighter and way more flexible. There is a plastic shin guard, shin padding and some sort of plastic guard above the heel on the back of the boot.
There apparently is some sort of reinforcement in the toe and heal area but I can’t feel it walking around. The toe box is stiff like a steel toe boot.
These boots are taller than some of the other trials boots which is also a plus to me because during a tight turn the boot will be rubbing the side of the bike and not my calf.
I have never worn knee braces so I can’t say if these would work with them but there seems to be a lot of adjustability in the calf area.

Value
These boots had everything that I was looking for in a trials boot and were significantly cheaper than the other options. Short of them falling apart tomorrow I would buy them again.

Good choice for Adventure or Dual Sport
I'm a long time enduro rider who is adding a trials bike to the stable. I ordered the Forma Boulder boots to ride trials. I found them to be taller, heavier and more robust than most trials boots. Frankly, if they had a smooth sole, I think they'd make a great enduro boot. As is, they would make a great dual sport or adventure boot. The construction is as good/solid as my old Hi Point boots from 30 years ago. Ultimately, I sent them back as I felt they were too robust for a beginning trials rider. Garne seems to have the trials market around here but they cost about $80 more than the Forma.

FWIW: I wear SIDI Crossfires for enduros.

Comfortable, but WAYYY big
Honestly, I couldn't keep these. Forma's sizing chart is way off. They claim US 7 is EU 41, but that's not correct. US 6 1/2-7 is around a 39. I believe 41 is more in the 8-9 range. I have also experienced this on other Forma's.

But I do love Forma boots. Quality construction, comfy, and at a great price point.

These are a better choice than MX boots
These are the right amount of boot for off dirt riding. I tried Tech 10s and they are way way too big and clunky, like wearing ski boots, no sensitivity for shifting or rear brake. With Tech 10s when you want to shift or brake you move your knee not your ankle because you foot is fused into one position. Also tried tech 7 enduros, almost as bad as the tech 10s, too stiff and clunky. Tech T boots are a little better but they are lower height boot and still pretty stiff. These Forma Boulder boots are just right. They are a full height boot with enough protection on the shin, toe and ankle but are still flexible enough to feel the shifter and rear brake. Your ankle is able to hinge like an ankle and shifting and braking are done with out moving your whole leg. If you want a full height, full protection dirt riding boot but like me hate stiff ski boots then these Forma Boulders are the ticket. Quality of materials and workmanship are good. The sole is grippy rubber not hard plastic. Made in Romania. True to size. Recommended product.

Great trials boot, wouldn't use for DS or MX
I recently started riding trials and was looking for a good boot. This boot has been great - flexible, easy to put on, plenty of room in the toe box. I have large calves and the boot fits over them well, although when I also wear knee and shin guards the fit around the calf is tight.

I wouldn't wear them in lieu of motocross boots if you're doing higher speed or dual-sport riding unless the terrain is pretty easy. They don't have the same protection as a true motocross boot. They might be fine for adventure riding again depending on the intensity if the terrain. For trials, I'm very happy!

this is a great boot
I haven't been able to use them yet due to weather. Wearing them around the house they are very comfortable and flexible.
I was looking for a boot that was a little taller than most trials boots and these are. I also wanted the steel shank in the sole. I have 2 pairs of Gaerne off road/mx boots and they are the best. I looked at the Gaerne oiled trials boots but was worried about the lack of the steel shank in the sole. I have read that they are very comfortable but can break down in the sole area. So far I am very happy with the Forma boots and I would recommend that you give them a look.

I use them as a Lightweight boot for exploring on my trials bike. I caught my toe on a rock and tore the sole stitching, separating the sole from the boot rendering the boots useless. A molded/glued sole such as an alpinestars hold up better.
I know guys that have had good luck with these boots. I think I'll try the alpinestars adventure boot next time.

Good bargain
These boots are taller and a little bit stiffer initially than other higher priced trials boots. Fit is close to true. I got a slightly larger size expecting them to be small like most European boots so mine are a little bit large.

my other pair of forma boots are size 47 eur how does that translate to us size?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Based off of Forma's website a 47 eur size should be a size 13 US.

How would you make these boots waterproof?
Denis C on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You could use camp dry spray that would work for riding in the rain to keep your feet dry. If you are talking about prolonged standing in water, I'm not sure it can be done. The design of these boots isn't conducive to waterproofing. Hope that helps!
