Sent the boots back, I don't like having to make a compromise on something new.
I'm now thinking the Sidi Adventure Gore-tex 2, or the Adventure rain which is about $100.00 cheaper.
We woke up to -7C and snow. I wasn't expecting this soon in the season. I may end up holding off any more purchases until I get to the motorcycle show in January.

Malcolm Smith Racing (MSR) used to offer "Re-Bounders". Thick padded in-soles to help us flat footed/slim footed riders fill-UP our riding boots.
I just heard that 'Aero-Stitch' offers thicker in-soles.

Boots came in today, but I'm not sure and I could use some advice.
The sole has a new pattern than what is shown on the web, it appears to be more street orientated, a blend of smooth and aggressive sections. I don't think it is what I want in an adventure sole.
The other problem is how the boot puckers at the sides when bending forward. I"m thinking there is too much looseness around the top of the foot, but I don't know if adventure boots are made like this intensionally for walking?
thanks in advance

Gaerne makes good boots; you may need to give it a bit of time to break them/you in.

|pdwestman||Extended length gear pedal and/or JNS footpeg relocation bracket may be quite beneficial with most off road style riding boots.|

I use enduro/adventure boots and cleated pegs without issue.
