Forma Adventure Dry Boots

Maximum quantity available reached.
The Forma Adventure Dry Boots are the #1 selling Adventure Touring and Dual Sport boot in the US. Forma Adventures are light, waterproof, easy to walk in, and extremely comfortable. They have reinforcements support at the ankle, and extra height over other ADV boots, at 13.25 inches. Best of all, they have a Keen-like nice, wide fit.

Adventures have plastic toe protectors on sides. Buckles are easy to use, even with gear on. Soles are MUCH grippier than most ADV boots, easier to walk on wet stuff, etc. Under pants, they almost look like hiking boots. Most important, they are made in Europe, and their quality reflects this.

FIT: Forma Adventures have a very wide fit, similar to Keens.

Great Boots

Everything is as expected, except for two things:
1 - My feet like the original Forma sizing, so had to step up a size ... no biggie.
2 - The color (brown) is a bit lighter than I wanted, so I gave them a false patina with some black leather polish ... now looks exactly like I wanted!

No gripes about the boots themselves.

Yeah, I have big feet

Sizing can be a little tricky so I advise consulting with Bryan. I ordered the Forma Boulders in the biggest size available, but could tell right away they were a bit small. Bryan immediately sent me a return authorization and I re-ordered Adventures in the 49EU/14US......they fit perfectly. Very sturdy lower leg protection, quality materials throughout, and comfortable to walk in. But the real 5 Star Rating goes to Bryan for his helpful, no-hassle commitment to customer service, which can be hard to find these days!

Best all-around boots I've owned

The Forma Adventure boots (I've got brown which looks very good) are sturdy, protective and comfortable to stand on pegs with. They are also comfortable for walks / short hikes to see scenery and trails (not for miles & miles). The tall boots shaft protects from branches or trail crap flinging up to hit your legs. I was initially concerned about the plastic snap buckles, but they've been perfectly reliable for 100s and 100s of miles; easy adjustment, stays put once set. You'll need above-the-calf or knee-high socks. And be sure you know your European shoe size Oh, did I mention they look really good? Designed in Italy, manufactured in Romania (mine anyway); excellent build quality.

Forma Boots USA Excellent Customer Service

Just an add on to my review in August to give a shout out to Forma USA. I had and issue with a strap and they took care of quickly with no hassle. Great boot, great all around service! Been riding in them for 3 months with around 700 miles of both on and off road and they are comfortable. I also did some short hiking in the mountains, 1/4 mile at a time off bike and they felt almost like my regular hiking boots, just higher.

Good Boots Great Customer Service

I want to commend Brian on exceptional customer service. I called before ordering boots last Tuesday and told him I needed them by Friday afternoon for a weekend ride. Even though he had them in his stock in OR he dropped shipped out of Forma in Henderson, NV. I got them the next day with the free shipping.

The boots are what I expected from the reviews here. After a 200 mile on and off road ride I have found them to be light, comfortable right out of the box, easy to walk in, and just tough enough to handle the kind of riding I do on my BMW 1200 GS (riding a WR450 I wear my Alpinestar full dirt boots but these are WAY to stiff for ADV riding). Also, if I don't have a wide boot I get severe pain from pinching in the ball of my foot and wear orthotics for this condition. These boots fit perfectly per his sizing chart.
