Aerostich Combat Lite Boots
- Product Review (submitted on June 8, 2010):
CBT Lites are great boots. They were a little stiff at first but, I knew they would be after reading other reviews. All good quality boots require some break in. I wore them for about a week while riding and then some around the house and walking the dog etc. Then I treated them with Chelsea leather food, this really softened them up.
I really like the lace system, very easy to get the boots on and off. the laces also secure the boots really well, giving you great ankle support. Most street/touring boots I looked at only used velcro closure.
The boots also look great too, they do not have a lot of colorful graphics etc. They just look like really cool boots.
I got the wedge sole and they offer a lot of grip when putting your feet down on the bike and are very user friendly while using the shifter and the brake pedal.
When I first got the boots they were a little loose in the heal so I bought the low profile sizing insoles. These made a huge difference in the comfort of the boots. The stock insole is not very comfortable, the aftermarket insole was well worth the money.
They are not claimed to be waterproof but, so far mine have been completely waterproof.
One of the other factors why I bought Combat Touring Boots is Aerostich"s customer service, I know if I have a warranty issue or need a repair it will be taken care of.
I look forward to many years of riding with my Combat Lites.
