I’ve had these boot for over a year now. I have a somewhat wide foot any many boots run narrow. This fits very well. The boots are very comfortable and seem to offer very good protection. They work well in a variety to climates. I’ve used these on 40 degree days and 105 degree Arizona afternoons. I can only give these 2 stars because of the construction. First, the heal pull straps are attached very weakly with single stitching and will come off easily. Mine did. What was more frustrating was that the part the buckle the strap attaches to is only superficially glued onto the exterior of the boot. Given the rest of the boot seems well made, I was really surprised at the cheap and weak way they attached the buckle. I had one pop right off just by buckling the boot on after a few weeks of use. I was able to epoxy it back on, but I’m concerned they are probably not going to hold if my foot is torqued in a crash or they are dragged along the pavement. They really should have attached it through the thickness of the boot with some sort of backing plate, not just gluing it on.

I have had these for a few weeks and am very satisfied
Likes: They fit more like real jeans that some other MC jeans I tried, which tend to be too baggy. The Kevlar lining is supposed be more protective than other brands, and it looks it. It is much thicker than the Kevlar on my Teknic or ADV jeans. Workmanship seems good and I expect them to last. They are comfortable to wear on and off the bike.
Dislikes: the “Distressed Look” is way over done. I don’t mind a little bit of fading in key areas, but this is way too much. Looks too “trendy.” I wish they came in plain, undistressed indigo. They do not come in inseam sizes. For mediums, the inseam is at least 34, maybe a 36. If you have a shorter inseam, you will have to have them re-hemmed. They have huge, ugly embroidered logos on each rear pocket, which I thought looked terrible. It made them look like woman jeans. I took them off, and that was a pain to do.
Despite some annoyances, I’m satisfied. I wear Bohn Adventure pants under these, and between that armor, and the Kevlar on these jeans, feel very protected
I wear a 34 waist, and ordered medium. They fit well. Inseam was too long though
Yes, I recommend this product.

I’m picky about my boots but like these. They are stiff where they need to be for protection, but have enough give that you don’t walk around like Frankenstein. For moderate distances they are fine to walk around in. Boots that are TOO comfy for walking probably won’t protect your ankle or foot in a crash. Cycle boots should limit range of motion at the ankle. I never wear open lace boots so like the cover these have over the laces. They are reasonable cool in 100+ temps. They are so plush inside that I have even worn them with footie socks. Workmanship seems very good. I wear a 12-13 wide shoe and the size 47 fits very well
Yes, I recommend this product.
