Aerostich Combat Touring Boots
- Product Review (submitted on April 20, 2012):
Love the boots. I wear a size 10.5, ordered a size 11 and they were much too big. Easily replaced and a size 10 is perfect. Despite what others have said, the break-in was not a big deal. A few walks around the park with the dog for a week and we're good to go.
I love the close fit at the top of the boot. Because they're trim, it's now possible to wear conventional pants that will actually fit over the tops of my boots, unlike my dirt bike boots.
Only complaints: The laces stick to the Velcro pretty bad. I can see that I'll have to replace them with another lace type soon. Wonder why the manufacturer does not address this? Also, the alignment of the top Velcro flaps and the Velcro sections on the boot don't line up nicely. That's a minor disappointment, but only cosmetic.
Overall, I'm very happy with them and look forward to years of heavy use. My 18 year old son can't wait until he gets my pair! In fact, for sentimental reasons, I wrote the date of purchase inside the boot. When his old man (now 53) passes for whatever reason, he'll have some, "Good shoes to fill."
