Aerostich Combat Touring Boots
- Product Review (submitted on July 21, 2011):
- I've had my CTB's for at least 10 years and have put in excess of 100k miles on them. They are the best riding boots I've ever owned and have held up very well with the exception of the Velcro, which lost it's ability to hold in about 2 years. I've since replaced it with Velcro which has held up well since. I don't think the Velcro which originally came on the boots is as high quality as genuine American Velcro. The other issue is the plastic coated material under the lace holes joining the two sides of the boot together. It flakes off and is regular cotton underneath. I've had to coat the material with silicone (Shoe Goo) to get it waterproof again. It would seem to me that a boot of this price would use thin leather for this part rather than cheap plastic coated cloth that flakes off and looses it's waterproofness in this area. Other than that, I'm very happy with these boots.
