I purchased these boots for street riding because I wanted real boots with honest protection that looked more traditional than most modern road boots. I wear them with Jeans on quick trips in the city and they work great. They are comfortable to walk in off the bike and I get compliments from non motorcyclists on my "cool Boots" all the time. The Boots have also preformed extremely well on long day trips under a revit infinity suit. They are easy to get in an out of and were almost perfectly broken in out of the box. I did have a small pinch point in the right ankle but it worked itself out after a few days of wear. I haven't had an opportunity to test the waterproofing yet.
