Why We Chose The Rome Libertine: Buy cheap, buy twice. Buy the Rome Libertine, and it’ll feel like you need never buy another pair of boots again.
While still best known for its boards, Rome also does a choice line of boots (and of course bindings). The Rome Libertine sits at the top of the brand’s small yet perfectly-formed range, and is a definite step up in clever tech from its nearest rival. We loved it last year, and it’s still as great as ever.
“It’s supremely comfortable from day one, leaves the door open for all kinds of riding, and is definitely built to last”
It still comes with a choice of no fewer than three different lacing systems – double Boa, classic lace with Boa inner harness, and just the lace – so there’s a style to suit every preference.
Who Is The Rome Libertine For?
As is often the case with ‘flagship’ boots, this has been designed to cater for a wide range of riding styles (hence the mid-stiff flex, for one). However, don’t think that means it’s spread itself too thin; the quality on display here is irrefutable, and will please even the most demanding rider.
