    Triumph Explorer Boot

    Looks like the Triumph Explorer Boot is no longer available. Cannot find it in my size which is 43 (10.5 in USA size) anywhere, including on-line.  Boot part number is M9084305.  I already have a pair of these boots in this size that I purchased a couple of years ago at the Triumph Dealer here in Reno.  But I want to leave a pair at one of my other houses too. I really like this boot for several reasons, but mainly because they only take a few seconds to put on or take off and they re not too large. And are comfortable to walk around in.

    So if these are no longer available, is there anything else that is close to it that I should be looking for?

    Don, You may want to explain what these boots look like in absence of a photo so some members can make suggestions for a similar boot.

    Good idea. What I like most about these boots is that they can be taken on and off in a few seconds and they are comfy to walk around in all day, not too large of a boot.

    Note they just use Velcro, no zippers or anything else:

    I have original all road boots which were all leather. https://www.revzilla.com/sidi-on-road-boots-reviewThe first link is the newest version. I really like them.  Gore-Tex, all Velcro and very comfortable.  Only been down once with them and they did their job and came out looking perfect.

    Thanks, I will have to try them out. They look a little taller than mine and the sizes don't seem to match up. The European size 43 in my Triumph Explorer boots is a 10.5 in American size, but in your link it's a 9.5.  That means I better try them on, and not order them on-line.

    I hope somebody around here keeps them in stock.

    I ordered mine through cyclegear.  They were shipped to a local store and I was not obligated to purchase them if the size was not right.  I was really weary about committing to $350 boots without trying them on.

    Yeah, the Triumph Explorer Boots cost half that price, but I would be willing to pay twice that for another pair. I bought those a few years ago at the Triumph dealer here in Reno who can no longer find them available anywhere.

    May I suggest you try on a pair of Daytona Road Star GTX? I'm pretty sure that once you slip them on you'll be rushing to the cash register to pay for them. They are simply the best and most comfortable boots I have ever owned.
