Candubrain 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.

pdwestman 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.

Candubrain 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

So its similar to buying a Corbin seat? My skinny bum never did break in the two Corbins I bought over the years. Ended up selling both for a loss.

We used to beat the back of the company issued safety shoes with a hammer to soften them up, otherwise you'd have blisters on the back of your heals for months. Problem is you had to keep them safely hidden or lock up when you weren't using them as people would steal your broken in shoes.....lol

Candubrain Ordered a pair of Gaerme G-Midland Gortex, should be here Wednesday, just hoping these aren't too stiff for my needs

I have the JNS relocation bracket, it's a long reach now to the shifter, but I've accustomed myself to moving my foot forward to shift and brake.
thanks

Candubrain thanks Dave, I'll keep looking on eBay and Kijiji for a bargain

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