Best adventure touring boots ever I love these boots. They are the most comfortable motorcycle boots I've ever had on. Just back from a day of trail riding in Maine, and I can assert that they are 100% waterproof! Love the little Italian tricolor flag sewn in as an accent! October 30, 2015
Amazing ADV Boot I saw a review saying that these boots are not waterproof, which prompted me to write. I've had a pair of these boots since 2010 and I can tell you not only are they 100% waterproof they have been for 5 years and at least 10,000 ridden miles and I have never re-oiled them. THEY HAVE NOT LEAKED ONCE and they have been extremely comfortable and hard wearing. The only negatives, if you can call them that are: They are a little big around the calf if you have skinny legs like me and you may need to add an insole if you have narrow feet like me. If you want a really great adventure boot that will keep you dry and last for years, look no further. October 1, 2015
Comfy but not waterproof I got these because my TCX boots weren't comfy off the bike. The balanced oil boots are more comfy for my wide foot. I didn't give them a better rating because they aren't waterproof though they claim to be. The TCX are. Now I have 2 pair of riding boots and neither do it all for me. August 15, 2015
Best Adventure boot that I have owned Best Adventure boot that I have owned (Not a boot expert as they are expensive, but have had SIDI, Dainese, and other cheaper brands). Tested over 12k mi in C/S America over 3 months, and numerous England/Scotland, SE Asia, etc trips. SUPER comfortable and showing pretty nominal wear for c 18k miles (note: I regularly oil with Lexol (took a small bottle for my 12k mi trip and cleaned/oil numerous times) . Soles holding up very well. Fully waterproof and breathes well for THAT TYPE of boot. Protection seems v good (never tested), easy on/off, and comfortable walking boot (albeit swap for the shoes if you are going on longer than 1/2 mi walks). Fit runs a touch on the narrower side of average (but average for an Italian shoes/boots), but Euro (length) size is true to other higher end Euro shoes/boots. I have a USA "B" (ie, relatively narrow) foot, and just replace the insoles with the SOLE Softec Ultra insert for a great fit. May 23, 2015
Excellent boot for the price point. I bought this boot instead of the Sidi Adventure to save a hundred bucks and came out with a boot that serves just as well. Couple of things I would expect Gaerne to fix though. 1. needs a shifter patch on the left boot. 2. get rid of the gum sole and use vibram instead. If you're riding on pavement, the gum sole won't last. 3. the buckles aren't easy to adjust and the top one doesn't align well. Otherwise, a very comfortable boot with great protection. I'll wear these out before I get another pair. May 15, 2015
They are hot and buckles are fussy Mine are the Gaerne Balance in black color (same basic boot as the brown oiled boots except for the leather). As other reviewers stated the top buckles line up poorly, are tricky to loosen and are cheap plastic. The boot isn't as stiff as a motocross boot like my Gaerne SG10 (which are much nicer boots). These Balance boots were bought for Trials riding and the gummy soles are ideal for that purpose. On the road this are much hotter and breathe more poorly than my Gore-tex boots (Alpinestars). Now that I sold my trials bike I will only use these on true dual sport rides not for touring or commuting. May 9, 2015
Great Boot, Top Buckles Problematic Fit great, feel great out of the box, like most have said. The toe box is on the wider side (I was a little worried about that, but turned out they were plenty wide enough for my feet), but a little low on my left foot. I felt pressure on the top of my big toe. They do wear in nicely, though. The rubber soles seemed kind of light-weight, but are wearing well. They grip the pegs well and have pretty good traction for walking. They also flex well enough out of the box to make walking in them easy, even normal! I prefer the brown leather looks to the black or plastics of other boots. Keep them treated with mink oil and they look and perform like a million bucks! They are all day boots as well. I've done some hiking, gone to the movies, and out to eat in these boots after a day of riding, and they felt and looked great in all settings. I cut up an old work boot and used contact cement to glue a patch over the shifter spot on the left boot -which also looks cool, if you ask me!!! My only complaint is with the top buckles. They don't seem to align with themselves very well. It's like you have to twist or bend the strap to get it into the buckle. And I find them really difficult to adjust, especially make looser. The lower buckles are fine it's just the tops I struggle with. I've owned these boots for just over a year now. I was amazed on a late fall night ride at how warm they kept my feet. Definitely air-tight, sole to top! I still haven't tested the waterproofness, but I keep them oiled, so I'm not terribly concerned. Oiling also helps with any scuffs. Overall I'm very happy with these boots. Fix the top buckles and they'd be 5 star boots! When these wear out I'll buy another pair. March 16, 2015
Excellent! Before actually buy this product I made a very extensive research on several forums and websites... And I was still in not so sure about it. But I decided to give it a try and... I'm very satisfied! These boots are very comfortable and what a style! For my riding behavior it is perfect! I'm 80% on-road and 20% off-road so based on my priorities I am very satisfied. For you to have an idea how comfortable it is, I travelled 15 hours in a flight from USA to Brazil wearing it!!! I had no space left on my luggage so I had to wear it :) On the other hand, if you are looking for boots for off-roading only maybe it is not the most protective boot on the market. It lacks protection on the toes and also on the "change gears" area. November 24, 2014
