Light, comfortable and easy to walk in boot for all motorcycle adventure, no matter how dirty you plan to get. Clomping about in Motocross boots all day has knobs on it! No zippers to stuff up, easy to get in and out of. A good looking boot errrr.... to boot. The special waterproof sock liner (booty) is designed to last AND work! European made.
There's a lot of noise out there in web land about which boots to wear and why. These beauties are aimed at those who need a boot to live in rather than crash in. Boots to hike to a waterfall or lookout, If yo plan to spear off into the bush 'cause you're riding hard look to Terra boots.
Want black? Email me here, I don't keep them in stock. They aren't very popular, the difference between black and brown is 12km of dirt anyway.
“I searched the market for the best a Adventure touring boot for years, trying and casting off quite a few pairs. I found Forma Adventure Boots in the US at an Expo and immediately fell in love!” — Andy
Forma boots feel more like a hiking boot than a bike boot! In fact check out the sole of a Hi Tech hiker and you'll see what I mean. These boots really are an all-day deal, cos we all know that clomping about all day in motocross boots has knobs on it! Ride all day, walk to check out interesting places, change and go out to dinner or hang around the campfire.
There’s plenty of things I love about them; they’re easy to step in and out of and there’s no zippers to fight with, clog up or stuff up. The protection level is top notch, which is important to me, and the waterproof sock liner is made to last and, more importantly, work.
They’re European made — rare for this price point — and they look bloody good. Forma have been making boots for a loong time often branding them for well known motorcycling names. They take a lot of pride in great fit and comfort. Forma are also committed to innovation and progressive, incremental improvement of each style.
Here's what the Forma people say.
An inventive footbed that features a simple ventilation system that pumps air from a central position to the entire insole. Air circulation within the boots is a key feature to keep feet cool and comfortable.
After several minutes of use your foot leaves a clear impression in the foam so comfort and a personalised fit is guaranteed everytime the boots are worn.
All of our waterproof boots feature the innovative booty (waterproof inner liner) system. All of the seams in the membrane are thermowelded to avoid water penetration while maintaining elevated breathability. The EVA covering on all of the waterproof boots guarantee maximum shock absorption and protects the booty from being damaged.
Our nylon midsole offers safety and comfort thanks to elevated front flexibility for better gear sensibility while the stiff compound in the back assures perfect stability on the bike. The Dual Flex midsole is featured on all of our riding and touring boots.
The EVA covering on all of the midsoles in the waterproof boots guarantee maximum shock absorption.
No need to worry,
A return sticker will be in the box with your new boots. Simply drop them in at a local post office with a note inside to clearly indicate what size you need.
We'll exchange them, seriously!
(sorry Australia only)
Please note that this service is offerred once (one free return and exchange at my cost), I am happy to exchange as many times as you like after this but you will need to pay those costs.
You can care for your boots by cleaning them with a soft brush and mild soapy water. Please refrain from using a pressure washer as this will damage the boot’s stitching and materials.
Heavy waterproofing products or waxes can block the stitching lines which allow the boots to breath and dry naturally. Any lightweight water-based leather conditioning product is ok to apply from time to time. We don't recommend oil based leather products as they soften the leather too much and can cause bonded soles to separate from the leather.
Sharp toe nails will cut through the waterproof liner, especially when shifting gears. It’s best to replace any threadbare socks and keep your toe nails short and filed before riding.
Intense heat from open fires or heaters will damage your boots. Riders who attempt to rapidly dry their boots run the risk of releasing the boot's assembly glue or the adhesive tape that seals the WP liner. Always dry your boots a good distance away from an open fire or heater, especially if drying for an extended period of time.
Do not store your boots long term in gear bags or high humidity environments. Boots that are not allowed to dry fully will rot stitching and materials in storage.

I used to get cramps in my feet and calfs with my old boots, when getting my foot under the gear lever, since I have had these boots I don't cramp up anymore :) really comfy and solid. I am a small lady and they also add a bit of height when putting my feet down.
I bought a pair of these circa 5 years ago. They have been on many adventures. Across the Andes 7 times, Cape York and the Himalayas. They still look new but obviously used. I concur with Andy's sizing recommendation, I agonised over this, finally going for my normal size plus one size up. I worked this out for myself!!!! 44Euro to 45. In Manali India, a boot maker said to only used natural products on the boots. Never Nugget, so everything Andy says is on the point. You clever bugger!!!
Hi, I purchased a pair of these last year and absolutely love them. The do what they say on the tin – so to speak. I would just like to ask if I can polish them or the best way to preserve the life of the boot? Note from Andy Feel free to use a leather treatment (we prefer a water based compound, hence NikWax) but ensure you don't clog up the stitching lines. The boots "breathe" from the inner liners via them.
I've had a pair of the Adventure Boots for about a year now, and I cannot imagine any boot bettering these. I have recently done 2 x 2-week trips, and the only time these were off my feet was when I had them in my sleeping bag. They really stand out as a boot you can walk in, so there's no deterrent to doing hikes to those lookouts or waterholes for a dip ! I can highly recommend these
