Gaerne Rose Womens Motorcycle Boots



Features: Waterproof/breathable membrane, reinforced at the ankles, toes, shins and heel cup, grippy durable soles, reflective strips on the heels 


Size/ Fit: Euro 38 / 7.5-8.  (I had to go up a size from my normal Euro 37 in these, because they are very narrow at the arch and ankles. I simply couldn't get my foot in the boot in the 37. I typically wear a 6.5 or 7, depending on the shoe. If you are normally a Euro 37 or a 6.5/7 like me, these will fit you.  I have average width feet and my calves measure a whopping 14.75" at the largest part.  

Are they comfortable? They're very light, and comfortable enough to walk in all day. 

What else should I know? If you don't wear a long sock that goes over your calves, then the seam on the inside of the boot may irritate/scratch your calf. For this reason, I recommend a calf size of no more than 14.5" so that there's room for a nice long sock.  

One issue is that since the zipper is full length, there's no adjustability for calf fit. You'll have to wear your riding pants over the boot.  They also have a breathable, waterproof membrane.

Sidi Fusion Womens Motorcycle Boots In reference to the Sidi Fusion Lei Boots, these are actually based off the men’s Fusion boot not the Vertigo.

The Fusion Lei is not the women’s equivalent to the Vertigo.

A couple other things that Scott Chikuami, Associate Marketing Manager at MotoNation suggested to me regarding increasing the comfort of the Sidis for a long workday:

1.)    Unzip the boots so there is only about an inch to half an inch of the of the boot still zippered shut (like you would with ski or snowboard boots) when walking about. It will all for a greater range of motion and let your feet breath more.

2.)    There is a removable instep that had a mild adhesive on it where it attached to the boot, replace that instep with an aftermarket instep like a Dr. Scholl’s – be weary of the thickness of the instep though as the thicker the instep the more comfortable usually, but you will start to eat up some Real Estate in the boot.
