Forma Boulder Boots
Forma Boulder boots are designed for competition ‘trials’ riding but they also double as popular dual-sport boots for general riding. The specially designed ‘trials’ sole helps with required grip, and a ‘trials’ rear heel cup for shifting gears. The boot’s minimalist design currently offers maximum feel and performance for the best trials riders in the world.
If rock hopping is not your thing, the Boulder boot’s retro leather styling and extreme comfort will suit a broad range of riders from everyday street to dual-sport touring.

We tried on a selection of Forma boots here in the office and found the length to be about right. The width on the boots is a touch more wide than most other brands we carry. Alpinestars and TCX tend to be the most wide, but these might even be a touch wider. I’d say they are a D to E and might even work for somebody with a slightly wider foot (but don’t get carried away and think they are wide enough for a person needing a EEE or wider). So my advice would be to use the chart below to choose a size based upon your US shoe size.
Forma offers advice on choosing a size from your foot measurement. Here’s how:
1) Measure the overall length of your foot. Forma recommends placing your heel against a wall and measuring from the wall to the end of your longest toe.
2) Add 3/4” to the length of your foot
3) Using Forma’s sizing chart below, choose the smallest size boot with an insole measurement that is at least the length of your foot plus 3/4”.
Use Forma’s size selection method as a “second opinion”. Maybe you’ll find it reassuring if it matches your size choice based on street shoe size or, maybe it could be a tie breaker if you are undecided between two sizes. FWIW, Forma’s advice didn’t work for me since I have relatively short toes. I wear a 45 (known from trying on) and this method put me in a 42.
