I am a middle-aged new rider and wanted a good comfortable pair of boots. The local shops had plenty of products but none fit my high instep and wide foot. I was directed to try the boots from Cruizerworks. I liked the side zipper for easy slip-on and slip-off. They were a plain boot too since I did not want any chains or buckles. I have used them this season and they are great. They are the most comfortable boot I have ever owned. I have worn them for 8 to 12 hours at a time with no fatique or sore feet. They polish up well and have a great sole for riding or walking.
