Did you know that “Dr. Martens were originally a modest work-wear boot that was even sold as a gardening shoe at one stage?” But, today I am not reviewing Dr. Martens, even though Peerko Go boots might remind you of this iconic brand. Peerko Go are much more than that. They let your feet move and feel.
I own several pairs of Peerko shoes already. Their Empire boots which I just reviewed recently here, were a lovely surprise from Peerko and Go Black from this review was a lovely surprise from my husband for my birthday (but of course he got a little hint what I want 😉 ).
Another colour which I’m reviewing here is more special and unique – this is Cosmic.

2. Material characteristics
Peerko Go boots are made from leather and they are available in 5 different colours. On the photo you can see colours Black, Cosmic and Storm, but they are also available in Rebel and Maroon colour.
My black pair is made from smooth leather. The leather is not matte, but has a more shiny look, which fits this shoe nicely.
The Cosmic color is very special and so beautiful. It is a mixture of gray, blue and silver. The right color is very difficult to capture in a photo because it very much depends on which direction the light falls on the shoe.
This colour is also made of leather, but the surface is very soft to the touch. I would never expect such a surface just from photos. Really nice.
Since the upper layer of leather is a little different, I don’t know how it will behave over longer time (whether it will wear out faster or not), but it is still in excellent condition at the moment.
The laces are flat and smooth and you only need to adjust them once. Tie them a little tighter so they don’t untie you too quickly.
With a convenient side zipper, you can put on the shoe very quickly.
The sole has a distinctive Peerko “wall” design. For longer durability, the sole is sewn and glued to the upper part of the shoe.
The heel part is slightly reinforced and the shoe holds its shape nicely.
The only thing that I miss in the shoe is a little loop on the tongue. It would be better to tread the shoelaces through it to hold the tongue in its place. If I wear thin tights, my tongue sometimes slides to the side.
This doesn’t happen if I wear jeans trousers and also this won’t happen if your calves and ankles are wider than mine are.
Like Empire boots, Go boots are lined with thin fleece. The fleece is made from a mixture of polyester (90%) and wool (10%).
The insole is not removable and it is made from the same material as the lining in the shaft.
A 3.5 mm thick thermoplastic rubber with a 1,5 mm tread added is used for the outsole. Because of the fleece lining the total stack height is slightly more than 5 mm.
The flexibility of the sole is good and I can easily roll them with one hand.
Flexibility is also good in the longitudinal direction. Ground feeling is not so intense as in some summer shoes, but still fine for a shoe like this.
Also check my video for the close-up and to see how they look on my feet.
3. Sizing information
Go boots are available in sizes 38-43 and they are true to size. The inside lengths and widths of Go shoes can be found in Peerko size chart.
Like all my Peerko shoes, I also wear a Go model in size 42. For my foot length 26.3 cm this means 12 mm space inside the shoes, which is the optimal space recommended by different research studies.
See my post How much space do we need in shoes if you want to know more about that.
3.2. Toebox shape & width
The toebox shape in the Go model is the same as in all Peerko models. Straight line for a big toe and milder slope towards the little toe. They fit well to the feet with the longest first or second toe.
More about different foot types you can read in my post What is my Foot Type?
The Go model is best suited for medium-wide and medium-wide to wide feet. They can also be worn with slightly wider feet, but not extra wide.
3.3. Fit around the instep, heel and ankle
Peerko Go are suitable for lower to normal height of the instep in the midfoot (before the laces starts). But if you have skinny ankles and heels, you won’t have an optimal fit in the back part of the boots.
If I wear them with tights or leggings, I have to tighten the laces completely and I still have some room left. I can feel slight heel slippage.
But if I wear them with thicker leggins or if I add some leg warmers the fit is much better and I don’t even have to tie them as far as they go.
Go boots are very pleasant to wear. They are very comfortable on the foot from the moment I first put them on.
5. Water-resistance and warmth
Go boots are not stated as waterproof, but leather is always good in rain and wet for some time. To improve water resistance, they can be additionally protected with an impregnating spray.
Regarding the warmth I consider them as shoes for autumn and milder winter days. I wouldn’t use them for longer walks in cold winter days.
However, if you plan to stay outside for a longer period of time, I recommend using wool insoles and wool socks.
6. How and when to wear them?
There are many ways to style your Peerko Go to create looks that let you express your own sense of style. You can wear them with more formal or casual clothes.
Try to pair your Go boots with a dress and or skirt and blouse combo for a feminine look with a slight edge.
Pair Go boots with black jeans and oversized tee or jumper for a trendy, streamlined finish.
When you wear Go boots with full-length jeans that aren’t super skinny, you can try to cuff them just above the top of your boots or try pairing them with cropped bottoms.
7. Price & where to buy
You can buy Peerko shoes on the official website, but you can also find them at various sellers. The full price for the Peerko Go model is from 139,60€ – 143,60€ (price varies depending on the size).
US customers can buy them at PedTerra (affiliated shop) with 10% discount with my affiliate code BOSENOGICE.
8. Shipping info
Shipping costs depend on the shipping country and where you are ordering from, so I recommend you to check their websites for that info.
9. To sum up
Are they a little rebellious? Edgy? Do they remind you of your teenage years? Probably true. But you have to admit that Peerko Go are very versatile shoes and I consider them to be the basic of fall-winter wardrobe of any barefoot enthusiast.
Did they awaken a little rebel in you too? 😉
