Puma Flat v2 Boots The Flat V2 is a performance boot specifically tailored for the urban rider Features Maximum stability Thanks to the 360 degree ankle protection cockpit, which combines TPU molds and innerfoam inserts, this boot offers improved stability as well as lateral impact protection Impact protection Using TPU inserts on the medial and lateral ankle level and toe box inserts in the forefoot, for increased protection in the event of a crash Improved traction Has the same outsole as the Roadster boot with a high abrasion resistant rubber outsole, offering maximum grip and traction
What I love most about these boots is they look just like regular Pumas and look great with my Kevlar reinforced jeans. They do run small. I normally wear a 9.5 in Puma shoes and needed a 10 since they didn't offer a 9.5 in this boot. The 9 was too small (especially in the toe where it's extremely shallow versus just narrow). I can't remember if the product page says they're leather, but the inside label says they're synthetic. I haven't warn then when it's warm out yet, but they did fine in the cool morning last week. All in all these have to be the coolest looking riding shoe/boot you can buy!

Bang for the Buck
Overall it's a good jacket, but there are some updates from the Series 2 that are unwanted. I had a zipper failure on my Series 2 and my local shop replaced it in warranty with the new model (since it was discontinued then#. The new model has thicker rubber around the cuffs which make if difficult to slide over a glove #like a heated winter glove). It also does not have zippered front pockets like the older model. The older model had zippers and "velcro". This one also loses the snap at the top to keep the neck held open, now it has "velcro" which gets caught on my helmet. And, the little pocket on the arm is backward... it's like it comes back towards the inside of your arm, even though the zipper enclosure is towards the outside of your arm. Also, it's now failed, so it's stuck half open. (I'm not bad with zippers, I've got a backpack with something like 6 "YKK" zippers that have never failed, it's just their quality).
