I took the advice of some other reviews and ordered them a half size smaller because they said they run a bit big. Glad I did. They are a good fit. The only problem I had at first was that when I walked, my toes hurt a bit, almost as if they were touching the front of the boot. It felt fine when I was riding or if I was just standing. That has gone away now. Don't know if they DO need to be broken in a bit or what but I walk just fine with them now. I have been wearing them almost everyday since December and I think they are good quality. I really like the look (style) of the boots. They are very comfortable when I am riding or at work. I would recomend this product to others. I thought it was a great price too.
These boots are great, I originally ordered a size 10 but had to return for a 9 1/2. Received them today, very comfortable and they feel broke in right from the box. Return was no hassle at all ( Thanks DK ) The zipper in the back is perfect for me since I had a broken ankle that had to be screwed back together. I like the height also because I wear socks to top of calf. A great boot for the money. Time to ride !!!!
This boot fit very well and was mostly comfortable while riding. Issue was after extended walking, the boot didn't move well. I ride to destinations and like to survey and enjoy the destinations. I am hopeful that this boot will loosen up some with some extended use.
Gotta say I've been moderately pleased with these boots. They do fit a bit big, but it's nothing a pair of gellin insoles didn't cure. Not very comfortable for all day walking. But then again they're riding boots, not walking boots. Leather seems to be good quality and durable. All in all, a good pair of boots for the money.
Had to return first pair, too big. Normally wear a size 9.5 to 10, went with a 9 and they fit fine. Boots are a little stiff in the heal, but I'm sure they'll be fine once they break in. Exchange process was the easiest I have ever experienced. Quick turn around on shipping. Very pleased, boots are bad ass!
I really like these boots. I ordered a half size smaller and it worked for me. I have not worn them in the rain but have worn them in a 100 plus temps and all was well. They were a little tight getting them on at the bottom strap but with some pressure my feet slid into a comfortable boot. I also like the way they feel when I'm riding. Some boots seem to get in the way of everything on the bike but these boots also fit the bike. I have a new Indian Scout which is a smaller cruiser type bike. My stats: 60 years old, disabled ( gift from Uncle Sam), issues with feet and legs from diabetes. Like I said these boots so far are a great deal and get the job done.
I bought these because of the style and features. The fit was good.Unfortunately after wearing them about 5 times for a total of maybe 12 hours I noticed one of the zippers had split open;ie the bottom was open & top 1/2 closed.I was dissapointed but was able to fix it only to have it do the same thing when I wore them the very next time.I mostly only used these for riding my motorcycle.So there isn't hardly any wear at all on them;BUT since I boght them in sept.09 and zipper broke in march of 10 There is no warranty left on them.Remember I wear them when riding and I'm a fair weather rider. I'm now paying a shoe repair to put in a nice metal zipper for $35.00 for the one boot..Buyer beware of CHEAP PLASTIC ZIPPERS!I should have worn them more in the 1st 90 days
i bought these boots after reading many reviews and love them. they are a good buy for the price, you also get style and comfort. I've had the boots for bout a month now and have bout 1500 mile worth of riding on them plus a little casual wear too. i bought them a half size smaller than what i normally wear(after taking advice from other reviews) and the are still a little bit big. so my advice is order one whole size smaller to get the right fit. so far no problems with the plastic zippers but it does worry me a little bit tho. all in all a very good product.
Rear zipper is much easier than a side zipper boot. These boots are a little heavy, but to get good protection that comes with the territory. I have seen reviews that say different but they fit me true to size. I put a cushioned insole in mine before ever wearing them, I am a big guy and I can wear them and do all the walking I want and they are comfortable.
This boot is excellent quality made and great soles and looks good but boot runs very big i usually wear a 10 in boots and i have now sent this boot back twice to try to get a size that fits and i am waiting for a 8 1/2 to return to me to try and see if it fits.
