I need a EEE width boot and have a high instep. Therefore, I had been searching for nearly a year for motorcycle boots that I could get my foot into.
I ordered these hoping the zipper in the back would allow me to get my foot into the boot. These fit great. The width is good. The quality is good. The generous cut of the boot allows me to even put them off and on without unzipping them!
Boot tops are unlined and higher than tops of crew socks so the tops chaffe; need taller socks. Stiff and heavy. Great soles and back zipper entry. Bought my SHOE size and they fit great. My 'cowboy' boot's soles wore out quickly so I'll try a pair of these. Oil finish, won't take polish so not as 'pretty'.
This boot was perfect except for people that wear larger sizes. I wear a size 13 and the heel of my foot wouldn't go past the back strap even with the side zipper unzipped. No worries, though. Dennis Kirk has excellent customer service. They took it back and I was able to get another boot from them. I'll be back to Dennis Kirk!
I ordered extra wide because I have an injured ankle and need extra wide boots to fit over my ankle. These weren't even wide enough to get my toes into! I had to wait 3 months while these were on back order, and then another week for them to be returned and have my account credited, minus the shipping fee. Next time I'll pay a little extra to get something that I can try on in a store.
