FORMA HARMONY BOOTS
It can be surprisingly difficult to find ladies bike boots which are both waterproof and stylish. This is why I’ve been loyal to my Docs for so many years but sadly their days are numbered. My first wear of these Forma Harmony boots was a schoolgirl error in planning; I wore them on a 10 day trip, riding to Rimini. Long trips are not the time to find out that you don’t get on with your kit!
To my taste I think they look quite nice – shin height with a low heel, abrasion resistant oiled leather with ankle and shin guards for CE approved protection – and they aren’t pink! However, the stitching across the top of my foot rubbed, leaving a red mark.
More annoying was that the memory foam air-ventilated insole, one of the big selling points of these boots, would not stay in place, sliding around when I tried to walk. I’m not usually keen on second chances, but in a torrential downpour they proved they are definitely waterproof and they are warm, so I changed their insoles for some thermal ones and gave them another try.
After some wearing-in they aren’t rubbing any more so I’ll persevere and keep using them this winter. RRP around £149 and for more details and stockists you need to call Factory Agencies Limited on 01749 342491 or email email@example.com Ann
