This shoe resembles the Puma Speed Cat rather closely in both design and fit, so if you're a Puma fan, this shoe will do great for you.
The RevZilla product review video does a fantastic job of outlying the features of the shoe, however I feel like they downplay the comfort of the shoe a little bit. At first it's not going to be super comfortable, but after a couple times out, the shoe will be broken in and you'll most likely find that you can wear them all day walking around.
I plan on picking up the non-vented for winter riding. I highly recommend this shoe to anyone that would like to have a sleek looking shoe for casual riding or heading down to the local pub.
Lastly, I picked up the Red / White / Black pair, and they look so much better in person than they do in the photos.

Icon Pursuit Perforated Gloves Fits like a glove... Youve heard it a thousand times, so have we. What actually defines how a glove should fit We think the new standard is Icons Pursuit glove. Supple sheepskin leather conforms to your hand. Plastic knuckle armor for protection, but hidden for a refined look. All over perforation for all day comfort. Reinforced goatskin palm to combat those nasty encounters with the asphalt. Try it on for yourself and then decide. This is what a glove was meant to be. Pittards sheepskin chassis for great fit Goatskin leather palm overlay for durability Integrated knuckle armor for protection Secure wrist closure keeps the glove in place Expansion gussets to improve overall flexibility Snap to keep gloves together while not in use

Unfortunate Enough to Experience the Protection

I recently purchased these gloves, probably 3 weeks ago or so. The fit was very comfortable and the air flow was on the extreme side which made for better riding in the 20+ days of 100+ temperatures we've been experiencing in my area. (The white color that I chose also helped in keeping my hands cool). The air flow made it feel as though these gloves would be sketchy at best in any kind of accident though.
About a week and a half ago I high-sided my motorcycle and then slid on my hands until I could roll to my back so that my backpack could absorb the remainder of the slide and then used my hands to prevent any body roll. The gloves are still in amazing condition! Just a few scratches in the palm and my hands are completely unscathed!
I would more than highly recommend these gloves to anyone in the market for a great pair of summer riding gloves without any doubt that they would sustain a concrete or asphalt slide.
* Do note that my left forearm is a whole different story as it looks like someone took a cheese grater about two-inches below the elbow so these obviously would only protect the hands...
