Great boot. Tons better than a Sidi Vertigo for only a few bucks more (better padding, more comfortable, and has a lacing system unlike the Sidi to actually keep the boot from feeling like a slipper, which I hate).
On the downside, I ended up between US sizes. I'm a 10, which would be a 44.5 euro (not available) so I ended up getting a 45. It's pretty close, but is a touch larger than I really would have preferred.
Pros Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Fit about true to size, perhaps one size larger.
On the upside, they flow a ton of air. On the downside, the knee armor is worthless because it's never going to stay in position during a crash, and I'm a little doubtful about the abrasion resistance.
Pros Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.
