Fit of the Gaerne G-Adventure boots
What's the fit like on these boots. I wear a 12 street shoe and am looking at either 12 or 13 in this boot. Also, can you provide some additional details on padding, interior armor, sole flexibility, outer shell construction and the inner liner? Thanks, your web-site is great!
I have flat-feet and wear a size 9D in all my boots. I ordered size 9 in these boots and they are like a 2nd skin. VERY comfortable but.... if I had a wide foot.... probably not so.
They are extremely well made, in my opinion, and provide me enough protection, but you wont see me on TV trying to break my neck doing crazy stuff. I just wanted shin protection mostly and good grip. I got both with these.
I think the soles are very flexible and have walked around for hours in mine w/o issue.
My first thought about the outer shell is it's really nice leather and strong. However, I think it will mark-up rather easily. So, if you're looking for a go-to-town boot... buy some black polish.
I have not wore them in any wet conditions, so I cannot comment on their water-proof qualities or inner liner on that issue. Although, I like how the liner neatly lays down when you latch-down the buckles. At 80 degrees, my feet did not get too hot and my socks, hours later, were not soaked.
