Gaerne G-Impulse Boots
Great boots! Fit true to size.
I've only had these boots a little over a week..They fit great, are very comfortable, and are well constructed. I'm hoping to post a yer from now and say the same things. Revzilla customer service is AWESOME. I ordered my first pair a little large, only to find out that they fit true to size, so I had to return them for a different size. Big props to Eric from customer service for being so helpful! I've ordered severl items from Revizilla and will continue to do so int he future because their customer server can't be beat.

Just what the doctor ordered
Great fit, walked around the house for about 3 hours to break them in. 1st ride today with then. regular socks are great, 50f out, very comfortable. stepped into the lake just to check the waterfroofing, dry as a bone after word.

Comfy & practical
After nearly two months of commuting, and a few day trips, I'm happy to say these are very comfortable boots. Easy to slip on or off, fit very well to size, and great to walk in. Also waterproof and warm on chilly 30-35f mornings. A great boot, and affordable too.

Perfect daily commuting boots
Just the right height, flexible, comfortable and stylish. I can walk in them, easily, the front fabric section makes shifting even easier - a full leather boot is a bit more stiff around the front of the ankle area - well thought of details all around. I would definitely buy another pair.

Great value and versatility
Recently wore these on a road trip from dry 90 degrees to rainy 50 degree weather. While a little warm at the hot end, had suprising breathability due to the internal mesh that seemed to allow moisture to escape from the top of the boot. At the cold, wet end of the trip my feet were dry and warm even while the rest of my body was a bit chilled.
Fit was a touch narrow when I first put them on but that subsided quickly and I'm now fine riding in these all day.
I've been very pleased with these boots and (especially for the price) would recommend them to others.

Comfortable commuter boots
Sizing seems pretty normal, maybe a touch small. I wear a 10.5-11 I ordered 11 and they fit great. Pretty comfortable from the get go, and after a couple hundred miles-perfect. The only niggling fit issue is they are not very snug around my lower shin. I have fairly slender legs, so if you have "cankles" they may be perfect. I don't think they would come off in a crash or anything, but coming from icon superduty laced boots it's a different feel. They sure go on and off fast! I am not a roadracer, more of a commuter/weekend backroad bomber. I feel for someone like me these are a good compromise. Nothing like a stiff race boot, but they make me feel confident in my foot/ankle protection while still being all-day comfortable. They are a touch hot, but I figured they would be, nothing most people couldn't handle. They are certainly well made, and look pretty decent. Worth the money for sure.

Perfect for shorter rides and commuting
I bought these boots mainly for going back and forth to work. I wanted something that was waterproof and had all the protection in a smaller frame that i could get in, zip up, and be ready to go in seconds. This is that boot for me. Very comfortable and solid. The bike lot is a 15 minute walk from work for me and these boots feel fine. No sweaty or clammy feet and ventilation is pretty good for a waterproof boot. The waterproofing is great since I rode for 30 minutes in a total downpour and was completely dry. Great boot for the price!

Nice boot. I find it nice looking and supportive. Problem is that my foot is 9.5 size. Without half sizes, the 10 is too big and the 9 is a bit tight.
