I purchased the 5450's to wear with my Klim Dakar pants, and I'm very happy with the results. The armor is placed in an elastic sleeve and slides up over your sock. The shin armor extends to the boot upper on an adventure boot. The knee cup stays in place over the knee cap with no need to adjust it. Check the sizing chart and get out the tape before you order. The fit is snug but comfortable. I feel confident that the armor will be in place should I need it. Before the addition of the 5450's the Dakar pants felt cool and breezy, but under-protective. Now they feel perfect.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I ordered these to be my main riding boots for 90/10 pavement and dirt. They have some good dirtbike/ATV features like the shin plate and Davos sole, but are shorter, lighter, and more flexible than full-on moto boots. They are water proof and warm-wearing which should make them a good choice for Northwet riding.
Initially the boots are pretty stiff, and they are not anatomically shaped with ankle cups, arch supports and the like, so you will have to break them in to fit your foot before they get more comfortable. With the stiff construction and cleated sole, they remind me of an expedition-grade hiking boot; not as comfortable initially as a day-hiker but better in the long run. The cleated soles can hang-up when moving your feet around on the pegs, and you may need to adjust your shift lever to make room. You'd be glad to have 'em trying to extract your bike off a a hillside though.
The look is just what I was after, tough but understated, not too tall, not too short. Italian made with quality leather construction, this boot is priced competitively with the third world options from other companies.
Yes, I recommend this product.
