    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

    1. "Do you make wide sizes?"

    Yes, but they have to break in. I designed our boots for an American foot (wider). They may feel snug in the toe box, but they will break in.


    2. "But I saw a YouTube review that said—"

    LET ME STOP YOU THERE. He's not reviewing the boot you'll receive — and you (hopefully) don't have his foot.

    I make upgrades with every batch. Each batch contains those upgrades. The little numbers next to the boot name indicate what version you'll be purchasing.


    3. "Do you offer a military/first responder/veteran discount?"

    Yes. Email your documentation to hello@indieridgeusa.com and we'll email you a discount code.


    4. "Okay, I got them, unlaced the first two grommets, shoved in my foot, and they feel a little tight. Did I get the wrong size?"

    Probably not. Take the laces completely off and walk around. Your boot should feel firm everywhere EXCEPT your heel. After some use, the leather will soften and the boot will mould to your foot.


    5. "Wait, so I can actually wear them?"

    Yes. It's called "The Live Free Guarantee". How can you know if you like riding boots if you can't wear them, or even *GASP* ride with them?

    There are some limitations though. Read "The Live Free Guarantee" — but overall, I want happy customers. Happy customers come back.


    6. "I can really return them even if I've worn them or ridden with them?"

    Yes, but again, read "The Live Free Guarantee" and our Official Return Policy, The "Road House" Return Policy. They work hand in hand.


    7. "It's Thursday and I need my boots for a ride Saturday, will they come in time?"

    Probably not. You can buy expedited shipping at checkout, but that does not include Fulfillment Time (1-2 business days) and shipping times are estimates.


    8. Okay, so what kind of conditioner should I use on my new Indie Ridge boots?

    I've tried probably every conditioner/oil that exists. I recommend "Fiebing's Aussie Leather Conditioner". It's cheap and you'll never see the bottom of that tub.


    9. "Are your boots CE Certified?"

    They are. Our EN 13634:2017 results for The Phoenix Collection (Waterproof) are: 1 2 2 2 + WR and 1 2 2 2 for The Wingman Collection (Ventilated).

    We sent our boots to France for testing a year ago, but one American work-hour equals two weeks in France. Our current inventory doesn't have CE marking, but as new inventory arrives, it will.


    10. "Do you ship to Canada?"

    Yes. But, you're responsible for all shipping, returns, exchanges, in addition to duty and fees. Sorry, but you know where you live.


    11. "How do I return or exchange a product?"

    There's probably ten links on this site that say "Size Exchanges & Returns." Pick one.


    You can email us at hello@indieridgeusa.com with any other questions (just don't ask how to do to an Exchange or Return).

    Or call us at (323) 207-9181 between 9:30am-5:30pm Pacific Time. If I don't answer, Stephanie (the nice one) will.

    If you leave a message, I'll call you back and we'll talk about nothing, or everything, for 45 minutes.

    - Steve

    Just Get Them

    A single tear rolled down my face as I pulled these onto my hopelessly and unnecessarily block-shaped feet for the first time. The dark clouds that have hovered above me for my entire life parted, and a warm beam of sunlight fell upon my face as I knew contentment for the first time. “They fit,” I whispered aloud to myself in complete and utter disbelief- “they actually fit!”.

    If you too have grown accustomed to riding shoes that fit like scuba flippers, reach for your wallet and never look back. If you’re thinking about springing for these shoes, do it. If you’re not thinking about it, start thinking about. Thank me later.

    Wow

    I guess since Steve beat me to the first review I’ll have to settle for second. These boots are remarkable. They feel so strong and solid that I can’t believe how light and comfortable they are. I’ve only put mine on and ridden in them once so far, and while I can feel a couple of pressure points that I expect to resolve with breaking in, I’m enthralled.

    I ordered my normal size - same that I wear in Merrell and in my Harley boots - and they fit perfectly. Super comfortable if a bit stiff (which is to be expected) right out of the box.

    The biggest surprise is the air flow. I didn’t expect to be able to feel air flowing around my feet as I rode, but I absolutely could. They did a phenomenal job of keeping my feet cool and dry riding in 80+ degree temps.

    I’ll soon be adding a pair of one of the waterproof variety for cooler or wet weather. I don’t think you can beat these things even at much higher price points.

    I won’t hesitate to buy from Indie Ridge in the future. Get yourself some. Trust me.

    Buy now. Regret never.

    After purchasing the Knight and the Cheyenne a couple years ago, I saw the Armstrong 5 days ago and knew I just had to add it to the collection. I just received this boot today after extremely quick shipping and delivery and I could not be more happy with my purchase. The weather forecast today was 97°F with clear skies, 36% humidity, and 19 mph winds. First thing I did was break them in for a few hours since I've got wide feet. After that I took them out for a spin on the bike for about 150 miles at the hottest part of the day and let me assure you the only part of my body that wasn't hot was my feet. My wide feet felt snug but not cramped and were well ventilated allowing them to stay cool throughout the trip. I could feel the breeze through the boot as I rode! Shifting and movement is a bit stiff at first but definitely loosened up as the day went on. My final thoughts? Just go ahead and buy it. Not only do they look great, they're extremely well ventilated, and offer the protection you need. Great job again on another awesome product and keep it up Indie Ridge. Next up for me is the walker!
