RiDE Best Buy - Forma Adventure Motorcycle Boots
RiDE magazine has just awarded the Forma Adventure boot their prestigious Best Buy award. The Forma Adventure is stylish, waterproof adventure boot, equally suited to on or off-road riding. They're a best seller and customers love these boots because not only do they look the best boot in their class, but they have all of the features of more expensive boots, but at a really competitive price. Manufactured in Europe, Forma Adventure boots are CE Certified to EN13634:2010, which is the latest safety standard for motorbike boots.
Forma Adventure boots are made from full grain, oil treated leather which are double stitched in the areas that come under the most stress. They're genuinely waterproof, thanks to their Drytex tubular inner liner. Drytex is similar to Goretex in that it allows the feet to breathe, whilst also keeping them dry. The added benefit of the Drytex membrane is that the seams are thermo-welded, rather than stitched, so moisture can't penetrate through any gaps to your feet (because there aren't any!). They're also light for an adventure boot, weighing just over 1kg, which really helps to limit fatigue when you're riding for longer periods.
The Adventure boot is very comfortable, thanks to its soft, polymer inner padding, with memory foam, which adapts to the contours of your feet. They're stiff to begin with, but they soon soften to accommodate your foot shape. They also feature TPU moulded plastic protection to the shin and ankle areas, plus a padded rear collar for added comfort. The sole of these Forma Adventure boots is a double density compound, tailored for off road use, with an especially strong nylon midsole. They have three adjustable buckles to secure the boot, which are nice and tough, so will take a bit of a battering off road. The buckle bases can be replaced if the worst happens, since they're screwed, rather than riveted, to the boot.
Forma Adventure boots are really versatile and we've sold them to all kinds of riders, tourers, off road, green laners, plus even men and women wanting a cool looking boot for the snow!

This sizing chart is specifically for Forma Adventure boots, not a generic boot chart, so it's the best guide you'll get for choosing the correct size. If you're in between sizes (i.e. a UK half size and a half size isn't available), go up a size, rather than down.
Remember to make allowances if you ride with thick socks.

RiDE Best Buy Award - Review Summary
One of the most distinctive sets here (especially in brown), the Italian-made Forma Adventure takes a little getting used to as it has a very chunky sole, resulting in a slight loss of feel you get on the foot controls. It's a supremely comfortable boot, easy to walk in, with enough shin and ankle protection for easy-to-medium terrain, with good-quality replaceable fasteners. The boot excelled in the waterproof testing - both feet stayed bone dry. The value is unbeatable but watch out: sizes come up small, so be sure to order one size up (see the ForMotorbikes' sizing chart for real measurements).
