Gaerne G-Adventure Boots
These boots are so comfortable to wear that I have been wearing them everyday, to the office, shopping, everywhere. As with all bike boots, they squeaks when you walk in them. Fortunately it is not difficult to get around that - Apply some baby oil to the front panel where the plastic straps attach to the buckle s and you can walk around in them in the office quietly.

Solid, well-made boot
Great boot design with three easy-to-adjust buckles. High in comfort with excellent shin protection. The boots were a little stiff for the first few rides, but broke in nicely, and are now very comfortable. They run a little warm on a hot day, but in North Dakota that isn't a common problem. I would definitely recommend these boots as a good value—high quality at a fair price.

Excellent right out of the box
I was surprised. Fit perfectly, comfortable, everything it is advertized to be . .

Fits a bit narrow at the toes. Hot for summer Texas riding but feet do stay dry.

Seems decent after a month of use.
Supposed to be waterproof. A 20 minute steady rain and my feet were dry. COnclusive? No. Promising? Yes. Looking forward to seeing how waterproof, althhough that means a long ride in the rain which I am not looking forward to. Also, the size I got is a 12. Ideally I wear an 11 1/2 EEE. But the 12 works.
The one gripe is the top buckle. The buckles are cam latches. For some reason, the top one is mounted in a way that it sometimes opens back up and I have to fiddle with the boot to get it to stay shut. Attached picture.

Great boot for short money
I love everything about these boots... EXCEPT: the buckles are terrible. Difficult to fasten, don't stay fastened. A couple times the adjustable end of the buckle has come out of the boot and needed to be reinserted... Never while buckled, but like I said, they can sometimes come unbuckled and I'm a little paranoid about losing the piece. I may look at having the buckles replaced. I love everything else about theses boots: break in fast, look pretty good, seems like decent protection, comfortable to walk in (wore them fore about 4 days straight recently on a trip, pretty good), waterproof (wore them in a pretty good downpour, stayed dry). I like them. My current go-to boots.

My first ride with the boots was 120 km and they were perfect!

Boot performed well
Bought the boot for a trip to Costa Rica. I was worried it would be too hot for the climate, but it worked pretty well. A few stream crossings went well, (because the seal goes all the way to the top of the boot) Great walking flexibility but solid arch under foot was good for standing riding. Buckles held up fine. Would like to see replacements easily available though.
