This boot is terrific. One of my friends, commented they will be hot and not easy to walk in. I set out for a 5.5 km hike in the hills and they performed well and were no hotter than my all leather hiking boots, and just as light. I always have warm feet so I think they have excellent air flow due to the gortex liner.
The protection is as good as you can get without stepping up to a racing boot. You just have to crash once with a poor boot, which I did, to learn the hard way. If you see anything wrong with these boots I suggest you put them back in the box, send them back, sell your ride and get back on the side walk where you belong.
Yes, I recommend this product.
