? ATRUM Boots ? Group Buy

Hi Everyone who participated in the group buy,

I have a question on the ATRUM boots. Does the sizing seems to run true? Also, I'm considering them for street riding with maybe a track day once a year at most. Can you walk with more than ten feet, or are these strictly a track boot that I shouldn't bother with for street use?

Any comment would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Manuel

I got one of the first runs and have had them for a bit over a month now, Worn them to two track days and use them for my daily commute. The Sizing is spot on for me, and once they do break in its not too bad to wear them for extended periods of time, but the do get rather warm, I also happen to live in Arizona so any boot will be warm.

But for example I went into work today to so some admin work and was wandering around the kitchen for 4 hours in them and was comfortable enough to not bother changing to my work shoes. They work well for me, I've worn then in temps to just under 100 degrees and was fine, but I imagine when summer does come in completely to the 110 degree days here I will be looking to get a better vented boot.

Should we have provided you a vented / perforated model?

yeah, but I believe mine were the first shipped out before they were all done, I'm not too sure if you had them when I got mine.
