    Dual sport-adventure motorcycle boot input.

    Hey guy's
    I'm preparing for my bike trip to Dawson city, Anchorage and Inuvik at the end of July. In this process i will be replacing my current Fox riding boots.
    I'm looking at the Alpinestar toucan and the corozal, the Forma adventure and the TCX track EVO boots.
    If you have experience with any of these please let me know. Comfort for riding long range, walking, we will walk alot and water proofing. Thanks

    I have a pair of the Forma Adventure low, so far nothing but good things to say. I haven't had a chance to try them out in the rain yet though.
    They fit exceptional, no need to break them in, good for walking and the low cut is good if you have big calves or like the motox type knee/shin pads.
    As soon as I put my foot into one after trying on about six other boots it made my decision.

    Going to try to get to the dealer today and try these on. The only problem is i need to go to two different dealers. They both carry the Forma but one carries Alpinestar and the other has the TCX on their shelf.
    Thanks for your reply DRD
    All three makes get really good ratings online and are all Italian design. I suspect it will be personal fit and comfort that will be the deciding factor.

    yessir...it will be a matter of which brand fits your hoof the best. I've got a pair of Thor 50/50 boots I've had for ten years now, I like 'em, use them on the dual sport as well as the HD. great to walk in and waterproof as long as I keep treating them.

    I wear Sidi Adventure Rain and love them. I bought them about 8 years ago and have put many miles on in dry, wet, on road and off road and they have not had a flaw.

    I just picked up a pair of Alpinestar, Corozal. Yesterday.
    Should be a huge improvement over my old motocross boots, especially when walking.

    the only grief I've had with mine is one of the buckle straps broke a few years ago and they no longer make replacements. I lucked out and had an old pair of old worn out Thor moto boots that had the same buckle system.

    if you need a replacement and can't find one, I have a few spares.
