Got these to replace a great pair of tourmaster boots that disinegrated after 2 years full time commuter use.
These don't fit nearly as well. Toe box puts pressure on top of big toe,yet is baggy at top of foot. Boot is too thick to easily use shifter as presently set up.
Hope they break-in and/or I adapt.
These are size 47, so smaller sizes may be OK.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Light weight shoe. Feel like a atheletic shoe, but with real world protection. Size was spot on.

Oblivious Higher quality materials and construction. Initially felt stiff (I mean like Tin Man stiff), for walking around, but still was comfortable for riding. This was especially true with the liner in. The liner does make it a warm jacket though.
After some days wear it seems to be losing its stiffness and the liner is softening (Or I am adjusting to it).
I am 6' 2", 210lb., 45" chest. Ordered the 46.
