The Gaerne Classic Trial Boot is made with microfiber to grant lightness and comfort. It features an injection molded front shin guard and three light alloy buckles, which are replaceable. It is also waterproof thanks to Gaerne Drytech Membrane. A gum rubber sole completes the task for a great feel and control of the bike.
Microfiber for lightweight durability.
Waterproof with breathable "Gaerne Drytech" membrane liner.
These are comfortable right out of the box. True to size. I wear a 10 1/2 in athletic shoes so I ordered an 11. Fit well, but still room for winter socks. I have bird legs, so the calf area is were I usually have problems. The velcro is just big enough for me to fasten the calf. Glad to see these are manufactured in Italy and not China! I am using these for trials and dual sport/ADV riding. If I am not riding the gnar, I like to have a boot I can walk in. These also provide good feel. You can actually feel your shifter. I can't speak to durability yet as I have only used them for a few weeks now. If this site allows, I will update my review after more use.
The boots are true to size. Very comfortable. They are for trials riding so they have way less ankle support than my motocross boots. But that's there design. I like the tread not to deep so I can move around on the pegs without snagging. I am 250 lbs so upper calf is larger than standard. Many trials boots are tight on the top. These are tight but I can do them up. Barely. Lol.
These are bar none my favorite trials boots. They're waterproof, comfortable, and allow a great range of motion while riding, but they are trials boots, meaning that they don't offer the same level of protection as n MX or enduro boot. I also use these as my street boots, and can wear them all day at the office and they will still be comfortable, even if coworkers don't always approve of this fashion choice.
