Gaerne G-Midland Gore-Tex Boots
« on: October 07, 2018, 05:52:39 PM »
Having taken a ride Saturday and ending with wet feet I decided to buy new boots and have gore tex linings. I spent this afternoon at SportsBije Shop in Boston trying different gore tex boots and have purchased Gaerne G-Midland Gore-Tex Boots

I chose these as the leather is noticeably thicker makes the new boots quite stiff. The adventure styling goes about as far as triumph did with the tiger, so a good style match. Although stiff the boot fits well and has level 2 protection. I’m now walking around the house in my new boots to start the process of wearing the boots in.

I’ll post some more comments when I start riding in them.

They look good, now if you had signed off with "I'LL be back" in a moody sort of tone  :821:

first rain test completed. I did 100 miles in heavy and persistent rain on Sunday and I am happy that my feet were warm and dry.

Hopefully so, but not in my limited experience with Gaerne.  I bought a set of their boots that were suppose to be waterproof, and not even close.  I even bought a second pair that I took to Europe with me and found out the hard way about them not being waterproof.  Then to add insult to injury, the heel has come unglued from the boot.  Same thing with a buddy I had recommended them to.

Oh wow. Now that's a shame.  :003: I had two Gaerne boots in my lifetime. Wore each of them over 30,000 miles in every weather condition you can imagine... never had any trouble with'em - I literally wore them out.

Recently bought a pair of Sidi Adventures to replace them. Had a Sidi before then and had to sell them because I needed money (along with all my Rev'It gear; good old days)

Now I am wondering if I ever gave them the oil + oven treatment. I used to do that to my leather boots back in the day, but I can't recall for the life of me if I did them to the Gaernes

Used Goop to glue the heels back on and used ski boot waterproofing on the leather.  For touring and rainy days tho I've bought a pair of Daytona GTX that are fantastic.

You're safe with Goretex, they are guaranteed to be water proof for the life of the product or they will replace them for you as I found out a couple of years ago when one of my 11 year old Hein Gericke boots suddenly started leaking. I contacted Goretex, sent them a few pictures to show condition of boots and in under 2 weeks I had a brand new pair of SIDI Adventures on my doorstep. Result.
