This is a terrific shoe if you have to walk AND ride, about as good as soft motorcycle footwear can get. These are comfortable walking shoes. The fit is excellent, but be sure to order at least size bigger than you normal US size. (I am a true 9.5, take a 10 in sneaker and bought this shoe in an 11.) They have a little more protection than hiking boots and they allow excellent control of back brake and shifter. As a consequence, the soles are a little thinner than one would want for track riding or an aggressive mountain ride. I tend to stay on the balls of my feet, so I would have liked a slightly stiffer sole. These are much, much higher quality construction and finish than other lifestyles shoes. They are comfortable and walkable. I have a size D foot and my usual problem riding boots is that they're too wide and too short.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bang for the Buck
Protection & Durability
Stitching came undone in one day. Sizing way off - had to ship 3X. Fine groves in bottom hold stone chips and make scratching noise when walking. Bad smelling rubber. Velcro flaps sure to come undone. No ventilation makes for hot sweaty feet. These have no business being called a motorcycling gear. More drop-shipped re-badged made-in-china shoddy goods from a high-price label. Needless to say DO NOT BUY
