As others have noted, size up from your regular shoe size - these boots definitely run small.
That said, once you've got them sized, they are excellent in every way. Style is supreme - compliments every time I wear them. Protection is adequate - hey, these aren't going to compare to dedicated race boots, but for what they are, they are top notch. Some minor breaking in is necessary, but once done, easily worn all day long with little or no issues at all.
Solid value and solid buy.

Bell RS-1 Helmet - Solid Colors The all-new Bell RS-1 Solid Helmet bridges the gap between the top-of-the-line Bell Star and the value-minded Vortex with an amazing blend of mid-line price and high-end performance. Starting with a lightweight Kevlar/fiberglass composite shell, the RS-1 brings it with Bells vaunted Velocity Flow Ventilation system providing cool comfort, a super stable aerodynamic profile keeping the helmet still at speed, and the versatile Click Release shield system for fast, easy shield swapsnot to mention an amazing variety of tint and coating choices. The Bell RS-1 Helmet should be a game changer in the mid-high end helmet assortment. The RS-1 Helmet will prove its worth on track and street alike. Contour Cut Cheekpads and a plush, removable, washable liner cradle the head in comfort while Bells exclusive Magnafusion magnetic strap keeper makes flapping strap ends a thing of the past. All told, its one great helmet at a modest price. Need help with the sizing Watch our sizing video or give our Gear Geeks a call!

I've been looking for a new helmet, and after several misfires, found the Bell RS-1. I tried both Arai and Shoei as well, with the Shoei RF-1100 being a close second in regards to fit and comfort. That said, if you are like me and you prefer a snug fit with little or no room for rattle the RS-1 is your helmet. Comfrtable, well ventilated, & lots of options (transitions lens, insert areas for blue tooth speakers to name a few), you really can't go wrong with this helmet.
