Thinking about buying a pair. Anyone have any experience with them?
I've been through two pairs of those, but the Scout is a new model and quite different, so experiences with the Web aren't really relevant.I have the Alpinestars Web Goretex boots..very comfortable..and crush proof enough to protect your ankles when the bike is lying on top of you ( don't ask how I know that..)
Do not trust Alpinestars sizes. My Web Gore-Tex boots were a Euro 42/US 8. I am a US 9, and those boots fit perfectly. You must try them on, or order from someplace with a liberal return policy (mine are coming from newenough.com).I don't know if their other models follow the same trend but these were small for their claimed size, for instance I wear a 10.5 to 11 size boot (10.5 with wide feet) but the boots I purchased say they are size 12...and fit my feet perfectly. So you might have to purchase one size up if this is normal for them.
Porn is not welcome here. :biggrinjester:I was going to post a seperate thread about that with pictures of my feet, maybe I will post them here later instead...hang tight.... :mrgreen:
To be honest, I never even think about them anymore, which I regard as a ringing endorsement! They have been outstanding. After I gave them a one-time treatment with Neatsfoot oil, the stiffness went away very quickly (a few days), and they have been demonstrably waterproof even in relentless downpours. They are also the most comfortable boot I've tried.dtalk, any more reports about the Scouts?
