Mine are the Stella Tech 6. I love 'em. But it is hard to do any hiking/scrambling in 'em. So if you like to get off the bike and explore I wouldn't suggest them.

I have worn T6s and tried some T8s, but they are just too stiff for me. I went with Gaernes because they have the hinged ankles.

Thats what I have now also :lol:

Should be able to get buckles and hardware from the Gaerne site and probably from mail order sites that carry their boots. I don't know, because unlike my Alpinestars, I have never broken or lost any parts on my Gaernes. I just give everything a quick check before I wear them the first time and if anything is loose, I just tighten it down....then, no problems. I have a pair of SG10s and a pair of Fastbacks.

can you get the gaernes in a size 6? I have sg10's and they are comfortable and very durable boots. If I can get them in a 6, maybe i'll get some for tresa for xmas.

I wear a ladies size 8 and have worn the SG10 in a size 6, but I went up a size in the Fastback model (which was also available in a 6) to a size 7. So you should be able to find the SG10 somewhere in a 6.

We've had boot discussions before so maybe this isn't entirely appropriate for this thread......but anyway......so I have old Fox ladies boots (size 6 but I wear a 7-1/2 shoe). They don't fit well in the leg anymore. I tried on a few pairs of boots last year and couldn't find anything with more leg room (can't remember which brands/styles). I was considering looking at a men's boot but was wondering if I could get them small enough. And then there's the leg issue again. A long time ago I wore a pair of my hubby's old AXO boots and I remember we had to lengthen the buckles.

I'm just so fed up with boots......

the sg-10's have adjustable calves (in addition to being able to adjust the length of the buckles). I have skinny calves so i adjust them tighter than stock. My large-calfed friend adjusts them looser than stock and they work great for him. Oddly enough, I even have some new ones for sale in a size 6 (mens) because mrs llama has ankle hardware and the boots don't like it.

I love my Tech 8s. I've had them for a couple years now and they're holding up great. I got a Men's 7. With the bootie they fit like a 6.5. I have a wide foot and bigger calves and these fit great. I wear a size 6 in mens ROCKY brand hunting boots and the fit is pretty similar to me.
