This boot is sold in European sizes. And we find this boot to run smaller than other brands/styles of the equivalent EU size. REVIT’s size conversion chart show below reflects how the boots run smaller than usual. Using the new chart, you’ll be buying a boot that is 1/2 to one size bigger than you might choose in other EU sized boots.
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. If you are between sizes in the chart, choose the larger.

Our Two Cents
The new REVIT Expedition H20 boot is a new design that offered off-road boot protection in a design that works for adventure/street riders too.
Wow, this is one heavy duty boot! Last year (2018) we added REVIT’s Pioneer and Discovery boots which offer some unique features such as the BOA closure system. The closure uses a fine stainless wire pre-routed through plastic guides and then spooled onto a ratchet. We think REVIT’s system works better than any we’ve seen built into boots like this.
The Expedition H2O shares the BOA system and the heavy duty Vibram sole with those previous models, but the Expedition takes the whole thing up a notch by offering a taller shaft with VERY robust armor as part of the shin and the shaft of the boot, which is similar to the feel of an off-road boot. But what makes this boot different than all the others is the special hinge setup at the ankle which helps with the flexibility of the boot. I’ve tried on off road boots before and they literally feel like a leg cast when you walk… there is just zero flexibility. But the Expedition boot will flex front to back at the ankle to give you some reasonable freedom of movement. And while it hinges easily front-to-back, flexibility from side-to-side is purposely limited, which is a shared characteristic with high end race boots.
The foot area of the boot is interesting too. Most of the foot area is made of Superficial. We commonly see Superfabric used in high end street gloves and race gloves. You’ll see it in the heel of the hand where there is a high probability of coming in contact with the pavement when you put your hands out. Superfabric is TOUGH for sure. Here’s some info from the web on the material.
I generally comment on whether boots have reinforcements in the toe box, heel, and shin. Well, let me tell you, the Expedition has all those in spades. I really can’t see how you could be disappointed with the overall protective scheme of this boot.
Some taller boots are limited on what type of human they’ll fit. Many don’t adjust enough to accommodate those with large calves, but I think this boot will cover almost anybody. On the size 45, I measure the max calf size at about 20” (which is pretty big), but they can also adjust down to about 13” as well.
This boot uses REVIT’s own waterproofing material called hydratex. The other two similar boots I mention used Outdry, which is a brand name waterproofing material like Gore-Tex. The hydratex liner in this boot is similar to the two other REVIT boots in that it is a “bonded” waterproofing system which means the waterproof layer is bonded to the interior surface of the upper material of the boot. Being bonded is better because water won’t penetrate the exterior of the boot and collect behind. Bonded liner construction has become the standard for high end boots and gloves in recent years. Why not Outdry or Gore-Tex? I don’t know really… I’d suspect it has something to do with the technical and testing requirements imposed by those brands which might be prohibitive for an expensive boot produced in lower numbers. But that’s just a guess. :: Paul, 02-27-19
REVIT says: The revolutionary Expedition H2O boot is like nothing else on the market. It combines the protection of MX boots but with waterproofing and unsurpassed comfort on and off the bike. Waterproofing is achieved through our hydratex®|Sphere technology, while the incorporation of the new REV’IT!|DSF (Dynamic Support Frame) keeps feet protected and stable while riding. SEESOFT™ armor is also found at the shin and tongue, helping contribute to overall comfort and protection.
