Aerostich Combat Lite Boots
- Product Review (submitted on April 5, 2011):
I purchased my Combat Lites at Christmas time due to the numerous gift certificates I received from generous friends and family members. I have been wearing the boots almost daily since then. I did not find them overly stiff. They are certainly heavier than the synthetic rubber, and canvas footwear we're all so accustomed to wearing, but a thick leather boot like this is naturally going to be stiffer. I've been wearing them on the Rider's Edge training range while teaching. That's a lot of walking over the course of the weekends, and I have no sore spots or blisters. Ultra Max grey socks are the only socks I own or wear. I love the speed lacing system, and the ankle buckle has not been a problem. I expect these boots to last me a very long time. The service representative at Aerostich advised me on the sizing. I wear a size 10--10 1/2, and the Euro size 45 has worked very well. I really like the secure feeling of the boots around the ankle, and the ridged soles work for me. They are flexible enough to comfortably operate the shift lever on my BMW 1200 GS. I believe the bee's wax I applied will make the Lites as water proof as can be expected.
