I picked up these boots because I was looking for a nice tour styled boot that offered decent protection that prevented the ankle from rolling in/out in a crash. The ankle protection on these is very nice and something you don't usually see excluding track/race boots. Styling is fairly subtle and not overtly flashy. Donning and doffing is made simple with the zipper up the back and adjustable velcro for the "cuff" size. Haven't been able to quantify how waterproof they are as I haven't rode through any major storms yet. They do break in quite a bit and become less stiff over time.
The issues I've discovered with them is they seem to run quite small. I normally wear a size 10 regular width. In these I had to get a 45 (US 11.5) which was still quite narrow, online shoppers take note. Also the shin guard WILL rub and leave marks on your leg if you're not wearing (tall) socks. Lastly, and a very minor issue, the toebox is quite flat/not very tall. It hasn't been an issue comfort wise, but I've found myself having to shift closer to the middle of the foot instead of the toes because they run so much flatter than other boots I'm used to and I've had issues with missed shifts.
