Beginning with some new boots models in the 2018 lineup, REVIT has a new size conversion chart. The chart is listed below. Generally speaking, the boots run smaller than in past seasons for a given size. Their new chart reflects the smaller sizing. Using the new chart, you’ll be buying a boot that is 1/2 to one size bigger than you might have chosen by using the conversion in past years. We tried on this model and confirmed the smaller fit.
Our fit advice is to use the chart below to choose an EU size based upon your US street shoe size, while keeping in mind you maybe be choosing one size larger than you may have bought from REVIT in past seasons.
Our Two Cents
REVIT’s Scout H2O boots are a great, high quality option if you want a mid-height hiker-style boot. Its waterproof with excellent protection capability.
The main body of this boot is a combination of leather and other man-made parts. It feels extremely sturdy, but not heavy like some more rugged boots become. The sole of the boot is extremely stiff (which is a good thing for a riding boot). Its made by Vibram and its a “system” including the middle layers the tread and the insole. I think everybody has heard of Vibram and this isn’t their first rodeo, so I feel comfortable with this design.
The heel area and the toe box are stiff and should hold up to shifting easily. And there are two round protectors built into either side the ankle for impact protection in those areas. The laces are partially tucked under the boot’s upper and they glide pretty well when you tug them. There is a speed lace device at the top, but I found just tying the boots worked well too. And to keep those laces tucked out of harm’s way, there is a Velcro-close strap at the ankle.
A waterproof liner is installed in this boot and will keep water out up to about the height of the ankle pucks. Of course a shorter hiker boot like this can’t possibly perform as well as taller boots in rain, but if you wear the right pants (long enough or with a gator over the boot at the instep level), these ought to work just fine. And of course they’ll keep your feet dry in occasional light rain without a hitch.
I really like the overall quality and high grade protection features in this boot. I personally don’t see such good features in a shorter/hiker style boot and the price of this boot, while premium, doesn’t look unreasonable to me. I also like how the boots look “normal” under jeans so you’ll be able to wear these anywhere off the bike (except maybe to your daughter’s wedding). :: Paul, 05-10-18
