GT boots from FORMA combine the best elements of road and motocross footwear in a package that is ideally suited to heavy duty applications.

Designed and developed in Italy, FORMA manufacture its GT boots in Europe to the CE standard EN13634 (protective footwear for professional motorcycle riders), proving that they are every bit as robust as they look.

GT boots will also protect the wearer from the elements, because inside the leather upper there is a Drytex® tubular lining. This waterproofing system creates an internal waterproof 'sock' to provide reliable and durable water resistance.

Further comfort and protection is provided by the insole, which features an Air Pump System that cushions the foot, while the TPU Dual Flex mid-sole protects the instep but allows flexibility when walking.

The tough soles are made from an anti-slip and oil-resistant rubber compound.

Forma GT boots are fastened by two motocross style buckles and a Velcro panel on the calf. Produced in sizes 7-13 they sell for £149.95.
