Great boots - but...
on 19 April 2013
I have to say that these are really great boots. They're sturdy, yet supple to wear. They give great support to your foot & ankle, yet allow good movement to the ankle for changing gear & breaking. The top part of the boot is nice & really comfortable, & allows layers to be encompassed within (base layer, leathers, etc.). But best of all, they look the part.
The only problem I have with these boots, & the reason I only gave 4 stars, is because of the sizing. I originally ordered a size 9 (which is the size of the majority of most of my footwear). When they arrived, I couldn't even get these on my feet. I contacted Ghost Bikes, who sorted out the return of these & replacement of a pair of size 10. So, I can't fault the supplier in their service. However, if I had known before ordering that the sizes are small, I would have ordered size 10 to start with.
The size 10 boots still feel quite tight, but they aren't supposed to be loose, they are supposed to hold & support your feet & ankles in case of a crash. I think my main problem is the bunions I have on my feet, these can be painful at times, & because these boots are tight, they can cause pain if I wear the boots for too long. However, this is not a fault with the boot.
These are really great boots, They're comfy, waterproof & look excellent. My only advice is... If you have wide fitting feet, or if you're a half size, go for the next size up.
