After buying a couple of different "waterproof" rain gloves that (1) were very difficult to put on if my hands were wet and (2) eventually soaked through in a long downpout, I decided to try these overgloves. They're kind of bulky, and a little difficult to put on (but go on ok with practice), but they've worked very well at keeping my hands dry in even long, heavy rains, and they're much less expensive than regular rain gloves as well. So I'm happy with them.

shoe lace loops tore open after less than 4 months of use

I’ve noticed that a lot of people review motorcycle boots right after they buy them. So how can they know if the boot will hold up over time? I decided to wait 6 months after buying these boots (the Shift Fuel Street Shoes, which are actually low motorcycle boots) - before I would write a review. The boots have some nice features, but after less than 4 months of wear, a serious design flaw became apparent which rendered them pretty much useless at that point. The problem that occurred is this - three of the cloth loops the shoelaces pass through tore open. The laces go through these flimsy cloth loops, not through eyelets or holes, and I don’t see anyway they can be re-sewn, as they tore in half rather than just pulling loose. (I do plan to look for a leatherworker or shoe repairman to see if I can get holes punched in the shoes - where normal shoelace holes go - but I don’t know if that fix will be possible.) The shoes do have some good qualities – they’re sturdy, comfortable, seem to give good ankle and toe protection, and the soles have good traction. The Velcro strips do a good job of containing the shoe laces so that they can’t get caught in the motorcycle footpegs. But now that three of the shoelace hooks have torn open, I’m having to skip some of the loops in lacing up the shoes, making the shoelaces longer than usual, and difficult to contain with the Velcro strips. If a few more of the loops rip open, I won’t be able to lace up the boots at all. A couple of other points – the little rubber patches glued onto the side of the toe began to come off after just a couple of weeks. The shoe is not waterproof at all (and it’s not advertised as such). I sent a copy of this review to Shift about 10 days ago to see if they would have any comment, but they have not responded.
