Before I bought these, I had several other riders tell me that they had other boots before their Supertech R's and that the Supertechs were FAR more comfortable and they wish they would have just bucked up and bought them in the first place.
I decided to take their advice and just buck up the first time around and I'm glad I did! Yes, they are expensive, but they are super comfortable and still very protective.
I went with the vented model because I do not ride in the rain and I'd rather be a little too cold than too hot.
One warning - they run SUPER big! I normally wear an 8.5 or 9 in shoes and had to go with a 41 (7.5) in Supertechs. Do yourself a favor and try them on somewear and then buy here!
Yes, I recommend this product.
