gaerne boots... sizing

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by jono454, Jun 18, 2010.

  1. just bought a pair of gaerne grt boots. very happy with them except for the sizing. im a 10 but they only come in half sizes. so i went with the 9.5 rather than the 10.5 hoping that the leather will stretch how ever much it needs to so that i get the perfect fit.

    has anyone had the same issue with these boots?

  2. Yes! I bought a pair a month ago, also a 9.5 (I'm usually a 10). They were comfortable in the shop with no slipping on my heel, but when I'm on the bike I think they must pinch a nerve in my left foot or something because I get these stabbing pains whenever I move my toes. That said, the last time I wore them I was wearing thin running socks and didn't have a problem. I suspect they're starting to stretch out. Still, I wish I'd bought the next size up and worn thick socks...
