Gaerne G-Adventure Boots
Excellent quality, great price
I waited for around a month for these boots to become available in my size. I normally wear a 10 wide in my work boots, but was assured that the size 10 boot would fit me fine. When they came in I pulled them on and found that they were a little more narrow around the arch than I expected. The toe box was "just right", though. I was wearing a thicker boot sock that I often wear. Swapping them for a thinner sock made the fit a little better. After wearing them out for a ride, they felt very good. They felt like they were already beginning to soften up and form to my feet. After a two hour ride, I got more comfortable with them. In those two hours of riding, I got no rub and no fatigue from wearing new, stiff boots. They already seem to be softening up around the ankle, making shifting easier and more comfortable... more of a flick of the foot, rather than an entire leg movement. Very happy that I waited on these. My other choice was a pair of Gearne's balance boots, but I did NOT have that much money to invest in the boots. The quality of the finish is top notch. not a single hanging stitch, no loose threads and no rough cuts on any of the material.

Close, but 4 stars!
So, these boots look and feel good right out of the box, great construction and high quality material. EXCEPT for the buckles! The buckles seem like cheap plastic that will break easily. I have about a dozen rides with them at this point and really like the boots and no buckles have broken... yet.
They do heat up a bit when it's warm but that's what you get with a waterproof boot. And they are waterproof! On my second ride with them I broke down about 2 miles from the truck in wet and muddy conditions with a creek crossing. Back at the truck my feet hurt but my socks were dry. They broke in nicely after that hike out.
All in all they are great boots with a good compromise between protection and comfort.

Time & Use will tell if quality matches the price...
Out of the box I felt they were a bit snug, but walking around the house (so I could return/exchange) allowed the boot to settle some so I ventured out with them. Did a waterproof test by standing a bucket of water for each boot...DRY. Wore them on a half day ride which included walking around. Very comfortable. Supportive while standing on foot pegs. I did notice a slight discomfort near the inner ankle bone area, but break in took that away. So far I really like them.

Most comfortable boot I've worn.
Most comfortable boot I've ever worn. Been riding dirt for over 40 years. I ride AMA Dualsport events now and these boots offer enough protection for me. Probably not stiff enough for motocross or jumping high and fast. Now I can walk off the bike and not impersonate Frankenstein.

Simply a Great Boot
I have had a pair of these for about a year. This most recent purchase was for my wife. These are very heavy duty boots, with a lugged sole that doesn't slip. Mine still look like new, even after a year of serious dual sport use. I didn't intend to use them for street riding, but have found I use them almost exclusively when I ride. The heavy leather offers a lot of protection and the fact that they just don't slip makes it a lot easier to hold the bike when there is gravel or an off-camber parking lot. They are hot in the summer time, but what serious motorcycle boot isn't?

Fantastic Boot for the price
Picked these up and have put about 350 miles on them and love them. I ride both on the street as well as on the dirt and have even done a days worth of errands in these boots without hesitation. They were only stiff for about the first few hours of riding and then loosened up comfortably. They have kept my feet dry through puddles and never seem to overheat on 95+ degree days. If your looking for a nice dual sport boot these are fantastic for the price. I highly recommend them
