excellent boot. beget than Sidi.
This boot is fantastic. I bought both this and Sidi rain. This was twice as comfortable and better on my wallet. Everyone said it looked better too. Did I say way more comfortable? Easy choice.

Great Year Round Boots
I have owned these boots for just under a year now, and I will say that I am very happy with them. They are very well put together and havent shown any real wear despite a few thousand hard miles on them. The soles are great on anything from wet pavement to loose dirt, and I always feel well balance when walking my bike or stopped on the side of the road waiting for friends. The water proofing does what it is supposed to and keeps my feet warm and dry. The boots are all leather, so if they are a bit tight, fear not, the will stretch out in a few days of moderate riding. The only thing I would see wrong with these boots is if you are hot blooded, your feet will get very hot and sweaty in the summer time. But overall a great, good looking boot with plenty of protection for year round riding.

Lower end motocross boot
There is a vast difference in appearance and quality between this boot and the oiled version. Too bad I had to wear mine before I found that out. This is a lower end moto boot just by the look of it. Having worn SG-10's for years, I would certainly recommend spending a little more and getting the Balance Oiled version

Nice boot, breaks in well
These boots broke in after wearing them a full day of walking around in the office. I put in the doctor scholls gel heel things to help give some extra cushion on the footbed. After the day of break in, for some reason they stunk like melted plastic but a dryer sheet in each boot has eliminated the odor. kept my feet dry in very muddy conditions, scrubbed clean easily and appear to be well constructed

Great material and workmanship!
A group of my riding buddies purchased these boots for me as a present, they knew that I love leather and Italian made goods. Well they hit the nail right on the head, I love them. They are very comfortable very well made and also very adjustable in three different places at the straps. They are not totally broken in yet but are all ready very easy to ride and walk in.
My friends could not be happier with the customer service and very fast delivery from RevZilla, so am I.
Thank you guys!

Warm and dry. Good Quality.
I've been riding with these boots for only 2 weeks (down to zero deg C), but, they work great. only issue is that the top buckle does not line up well once the boot is on. Where the top buckle attaches to the boot, on either end, should be single point so it can swivel and be self aligning. Other than that, warm and dry, happy guy...

Love These Boots!!!
Alright, I've now had the G-Adventures for about a week and half and I've taken a few rides in that time.
All I can really say is that these are by far the most (out of the box) comfortable boots I've tried that are in the "Adventure Boot" category. Meaning a high boot with adjustable buckle closures and a chunkier sole for off-road biased terrain.
The boot has great flex (give) in the area just behind the toe break area which has been a real issue with other "off-road" boots I've tried. Also a huge issue in the past (and the reason the A-Star Scouts were sold) was the lack of "feel" for the shifter/rear brake. Right out of the box I had great feel for the shifter, brake, as well as where my foot actually was on the pegs.
The durability and construction of this boot is great, especially for the price paid. I feel that the protection is almost as good as the scouts, so I'm willing to forgo a bit of protection (primarily in the ankle area) for the gain in comfort and feel for the bikes controls.
As far as fit is concerned, I normally wear a 11.5 shoe and a 45-46 in EU boots. for this boot I went with the size 12, which fits perfectly front to back, but is a wee bit tight in the toe box width. As these are an all leather boot, I'm pretty confident that this area will stretch a bit and feel better over time.
For anyone looking for a boot that can span the range of fire road/mild single track (not a replacement for a hardcore hard boot) to all weather on road service, I cant recommend this boot more highly.

Good product for price.
I wanted a taller boot for riding and waterproof for commuting in the Pacific Northwest. I like the added protection of this boot and three buckle system. I haven't used in mud or puddles, but the boots have kept me dry on my commute in the pooring rain. I'm very happy so far with these boots. I only wish they came in half sizes when I ordered them.
