Gaerne Balance Pro Tech - We get the call at least once a week: Do you have a boot that is more comfortable than an MX boot, but more protective than a street boot? Something that will keep me from breaking my ankle but still let me walk? We do: The Gaerne Balance.
We gush over Gaerne Balance boots so much because they blend super high quality materials - this cannot be overstated - with great fit, good protection, and just enough flex to comfortably wear and walk in, all day.
The Balance are made from MX boot leather, which is about 30% thicker than street boot leather. They have sturdy buckles and enough height to clamp onto your lower leg firmly. A plastic shin plate reduces the amount of fold / distortion in the leather, stiffening it further. On the other hand, they are light in weight and have a soft, easy-to-walk-in sole. They split the middle ground perfectly between street boots and MX boots.
Gaerne has the best fit in the world, and the comfort of these is outstanding. The entire upper of the boot is made from 5 pieces, so very few seams. This allows the boot to crease without pressure points. They have a wide toebox, and are good for people with wide feet.
There are two versions of the Balance: this is the Pro Tech version, which uses standard leather, is a little stiffer, non-waterproof, and costs a little less. The other is the Oiled version, with an oiled leather that is a little softer, and features a waterproof liner.
