We first heard about the Forma Hyper riding shoe about six month ago and already being fans of the Forma Cooper shoes, we were thrilled to see the new and improved design. The Hypers finally made their debut a few weeks ago and once again Forma did not disappoint.
There is an abundance of riding shoes on the market but very few of them are more than sneakers with a fancy moto logo. The Hyper riding shoes offer legit and evident protection – internal ankle protection, external and internal heel protection as well as toe protection. The shoe feels extremely supportive and sturdy around the foot and ankle. Despite all the protective features, the Hyper boots are surprisingly comfortable and easy to walk in. Another feature that sets these shoes apart from most other riding shoes is the hidden zipper. We absolutely love this feature and it makes putting the shoes on and taking them off extremely easy.
As most of the other Forma boots, the Hyper riding shoes are 100% waterproof which could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your riding conditions. For us here in hot California, it’s a bit of a downside but we have not found these boots to be overly hot yet. This is where moisture wicking riding socks come in very handy.
These boots run pretty true to size and start at the low size of 36 making it possible for female riders to wear the Hyper shoes as well. We found that even though black is generally considered to be a slimming color, in this case the grey color Hyper shoes look better and slimmer in the smaller sizes. Overall we are super pleased with this shoes and did we mention the hidden zipper??
