Rev'It! Fusion Boots

If you're not familiar with Rev'It!, it's a Dutch company that has within the last couple of year begun marketing motorcycle gear (including jackets, pants, gloves & boots) to we Yanks. Many of Rev'It!'s designs are unique without being radical, incorporating nice touches that will be particularly appreciated by we loonies who ride in all temps and conditions. Being of European origin, it's a sure bet Rev'It! gear is designed to withstand the wet and cold. It appears that Rev'It! has many of its products manufactured in countries with lower labor-costs in order to keep the purchase prices within reason. The various products I've seen reviewed have been generally well-received. I've been wearing a pair of Rev'It! Fusion boots for about a year and a half now. The photo here (click to enlarge) is courtesy of Rev'It! Here's what Rev'It! says on its website:
“The FUSION is a functional and comfortable sports touring boot made of quality leather with a high level of protection. The boot is fitted with a thermo formed shin plate, thermo formed inserts at the heel and toe and malleolous protection. The boot is fully waterproof featuring a waterproof membrane and zipper. The sole is petrol resistant and contains a dual injected steel reinforced mid sole making the boot highly durable and solid. The anatomically designed foot bed and unique last increase the wearability and comfort of the FUSION boot.”

To read an in-depth review, with more photos, click on over to webBikeWorld. I provided comments regarding my experience with the Fusion boots to wBW in May 2006, and again a couple of days ago as a long-term follow-up. They're published at the end of wBW's review (the jig is up: I'm "D").
