Aerostich Combat Lite Boots
- Product Review (submitted on June 15, 2010):
I recently purchased the Combat Lite Boot. As the founder of a motorcycle safety school in Texas as well as a hard core sport bike rider I needed a boot that I can use for operating various types of motorcycles under many riding conditions.
After reading other reviews regarding the combat lite, I was not convinced that this is the bot that would best meet my riding needs. After all, there are many other brands available at lower prices.
I finally purchases the combat lite and have been very pleased that I did for the following reasons.
This boot will last longer than I will. At a young 48, that should be for a long time. The boot was stiff out of the box but has become more comfortable in the two days that I have been wearing them. The stiffness out of the box speaks to the quality construction and durability that one can expect from a boot like this.
The combat lite looks good and gives me excellent support while riding. I was surprised at how much more comfortable I was riding with the support offered by this boot.
As my personal bike is an Aprilia Tuono 1000 Factory with high foot pegs and a fairly forward riding position I had to work a little to adjust to shifting. Having said that all was well following a slight adjustment to my shifting technique. I suppose as I put some miles on these boots that the shifting will become easier.
All in all I am very pleased with this purchase and would highly recommend these boots.
