Gaerne Women's Rose Boots
Good protection, but ankle still twisted
This boot definitely provides more protection than your average fashion boot, etc. It is waterproof and has thick leather and rubber soles that make you about 1 inch taller, for any shorter gals out there. However, as a beginner in my first 9 days of riding, I've dropped my bike several times, and have twisted both ankles while wearing these boots (once when dropping it on the left, once on the right side). I was hoping that these boots would prevent that sort of injury. It's nothing serious; I just need to stay off my feet for the next few days, but for +$200, I would've expected more ankle protection.

Great shoe tight fit
This is a great boot with a few small flaws.
Pros: Great sturdy boot. Grips the road amazingly. I feel safe and secure in these boots.
Cons: Tight tight fit. I didn't buy a half size bigger than I normally wear. I have a narrow heel and thought I would be fine. However this shoe does cramp my toes and the side of my foot. I just did a 500 mile round trip road trip in these boots. About half way my feet was killing me from the narrow toe area. I unzipped the boot half way down and that seemed to help a bit. Your feet can get hot in these boots when you are not riding. While riding you are cooled down and just fine.

This product has great features
I got for the wife, it were pleasant to her, very stylish and convenient, I hope won't get wet and it isn't necessary to dress during a rain boot covers

I listened to the other reviews and got a size 1/2 larger than my usual and that fits nice and snug! I would Highly recommend getting larger than your usual shoe size. Other than that, shopping was easy! The boot looks great and it feels great when riding. I feel protected and it looks and feels very durable.

I am pleased with these boots. I bought a size larger than my normal shoe size, and they fit great. I found that I need to wear knee-high socks with them as the fabric inside the boot around the shin is rather scratchy. With the tall socks, they are quite comfortable.

I love these boots. However, I highly suggest ordering a half a size larger. I sent the initial pair I order back because they were too snug. Yet, I am very satisfied that I stuck with these. Comfortable and effective. However, because of the way they fit me, I would not suggest them to someone with larger ankles.

I want to start off by saying that I have never received a order so quickly, great shipping!
I wear a size 6 (37) and the boots were a little tight on my pinky toe but after I stretched the toe area a bit it fit like a dream. I bought the boots for my MSF class and they were still comfortable after the fourth hour of doing drills! I highly recommend these boots and shopping with this company.

Nice style and fit.
These are really nice boots. I have a narrow foot and these fit pretty well. I was worried about the flexiblity when shifting, but they worked perfectly from the start. They are pretty decent for walking from the bike to the coffee shop. My feet are really warm in these boots too. Overall, I'm very happy with them.
