Are all of your toes straight?
Really like the boots and would buy them again, but prefer without the Nestfit. My big toe isn't completely straight, so it constantly touches the Nestfit indentation -- like when a shoe is on the small side and your toe is constantly just touching the end. It's just enough to keep reminding me its there, but not really uncomfortable.
<br>PRO's: Absolutely love the BOA lace system, and it seems it will be durable. These are very comfortable for walking when you're off the bike. I could wear them all day without a problem. While these aren't "air" boots, they do breathe. I just came back from riding in 95 degree heat and my feet were comfortable.
<br>I haven't tried them in the rain yet, but the tongue tends to fold with an exposed gap about half way down the upper that might let water in, so I will always use gaiters with these to be sure that is covered.
Better than expected.
I love these boots, they are the first boots that are not "fashion" styled and what I would normally wear on my Triumph Thruxton. However, I took a 1000 mile ride at the start of the season and they were great, granted not perfect for a bike like mine but the most important thing was how comfortable they were and how safe I felt in them. I love the the lacing system and all the D30 padding is great!. They don't have half sizes but they do include an insole so the size 10's fit perfect. Great job Klim!!!
Best pair of riding/hiking boots I’ve ever had. I now have 2 pairs and wear them everyday....whether I’m riding or not.
My go to Boot now
Great boots for everyday riding where you don't want or need a moto boot. Comfy enough to wear all day on and off the bike and are 100% waterproof. I have really fussy feet and absolutely love these boots. The BOA system is the coolest thing, let's face it, bent over and doing up laces or buckles is a pain, and the BOA is super fast and easy to make tightness adjustments. Ankle support is spot on, the boot is rigid and soft all at the same time. Well done Klim.
Good boot, but my pair was not entirely waterproof.

Bought these boots before a 5,900 mile trip from Oklahoma through Colorado, Wyoming, Montana into Canada and back through Washington, Idaho, etc. Wore them some just before, but really did not get broke in till after about a week of wearing. Comfortable, easy to lace, good boot even to walk around in. One thing was that I did find them not waterproof or even very water resistant. Light rain for more than 15 minutes gets your socks wet, especially on the toes. I have sprayed with camping waterproofing silicone to see if that will help next long trip. But, overall, well pleased since I try not to ride in the rain anymore than necessary.
Don't make you walk like Frankenstein's monster (his name was Adam. No, really. Look it up)
I had a perfectly serviceable pair of riding boots. They were great for riding. Riding. Not walking. They made me walk like Frankenstein's monster, stomping about without flexing my feet. Don't get me wrong: I love those boots. They've kept me from crushing my feet in a couple of parking lot layovers where the bike landed squarely on my foot. But for walking anywhere, they weren't so good.
<br>I read about the Klim Outlander GTX, and was intrigued. A boot designed to ride in, then walk about when you reach a destination. Since I ride to hiking trails, this would keep me from having to pack hiking boots for my destination.
<br>I bought a pair of 10s. I seem to remember wearing size 9, so these may run a bit small, but they fit well, and are comfortable to sit in. They haven't broken in yet, but I plan to hit some trails this weekend, and look forward to them learning to flex in harmony with my feet.
