PROS: COMFORTABLE, Good fit, Sturdy/Safety seems good, Flexible - can walk in them, Looks nice under pants
CONS: Zipper can be a bit cumbersome to pull up at times, though once it is up it functions well.
This is my first actual "motorcycle" boot (I've been wearing hiking boots up till now). I was concerned about a motorcycle boot being too stiff and having trouble walking in it when off the bike. I was also concerned about being able to shift and brake adequately with a stiff boot on. And obviously, I wanted the safety in spite of my aversion to discomfort.
I decided to buy these boots for 2 primary reasons:
1. Reviews on the comparable men's Dainese boots. Many commented on the comfort -- one went so far as to say it was like putting your foot in your slippers.
2. The features outlined in the Revzilla video review. The review showed the adjustable velcro at the calf, the stretchy section on the top of the foot and the bendable sole. All seemed to indicate a good fit with the ability to walk.
I was NOT disappointed! These boots are fabulous. They are very comfortable when I put my foot in. I have no trouble shifting or braking on the bike. I can even walk around off the bike without trouble. I wouldn't go on a 5 mile hike, but I can easily walk around town and even explore when we're off road. And, they look nice with my pants draped over them. I truly love them.
I usually wear a size 6/6.5 dress shoe, size 7 in most boots or athletic shoes. I got the 39 (which corresponds to size 7) and am very happy with the fit. My foot width is average and I feel like the boot fits it comfortably. Room on the sides, but not so much that the boot feels too big. My foot doesn't slide around in the boot, but it doesn't feel squeezed either.
The boots are water proof and I can attest to this aspect as I ended up having to walk with them while taking the bike through a series of mud puddles on some dirt roads a few weeks ago. My boots were actually submerged in muddy water past my ankle. No leakage.
I've only had them about 2 months, so we'll see how they hold up against time, but so far, for everything else short of a wreck, they've done well.
