Falco Avantour 2 Adventure Boots (product review)

We were pretty excited to get our feet into a set of Falco Avantour 2 adventure boots before our Himalayas trip late last year. Having tested their Lennox 2 urban offering, we weren’t surprised when we opened the box to find a quality looking product.

With more than 30 years in the game, Falco has a reputation for its craftsmanship and build quality. Its boots are designed and manufactured in Italy, and from an aesthetic perspective, the Avantour 2 boots do not disappoint.

Available in either black or brown (as tested), they not only look sturdy and protective, but are also very comfortable to boot (pun intended). The latter is important when you might spend 10 straight hours in them (like we did).

It’s definitely a positive, and that comfort is one of our favourite features of the boot. They’re also easy to get on and off, while still offering plenty of protection. The upper is constructed from full-grain oil-treated leather, with a “high-tex” waterproof membrane.

For added protection, the Avantour 2 also features a polyurethane moulded shin plate and “Eso-Motion 2” rear articulation system. “D3O” backed ankle cups also offer good support, especially when in more unstable environments.

The boots are easy to secure, with a big Velcro pad and Black alu-buckles, offering a secure fit and plenty of adjustability. A high-grip textured rubber sole also features. We found no issues in the way they perform on either dirt or road either.

That said, there are some competitors with a slightly more aggressive tread pattern on the soles, for more serious off road endeavours. It’s also worth noting the Falco Avantour 2 boots are legitimately waterproof.

Riders in other brands on our trip overseas were complaining of wet socks after some of the water crossings, but we had no such issues. So comfortable are the Avantour 2 adventure boots, you could even wear them for touring riding.

The boots offer good feel on both the brake and shift levers, which can sometimes be a struggle with off road footwear. Loaded with safety features, Falco Avantour 2 adventure boots are priced from $499.95, and available at all good motorcycle retailers.

Pros – comfortable; great looking boot; waterproof; fit for purpose.

Cons – some riders may want a more aggressive sole tread for serious off-roading.
