Alpinestars Net Air Boots
Pretty decent boot, after some massaging.
The toe box was much larger than expected so I replaced the thin insoles with more robust versions and the fit improved. That did not improve the exterior oversize which was challenging to get under my shifter and what I could get under was nowhere near the reinforced shifter pad. The stiffness of the toe box prevented any feeling of the shifter with my foot. To remedy this I took my ball peen hammer to the toe box to soften up the leather and all was well after that. I then took a 2500 mile journey in temps ranging from 40° to 97°. I just barley started to feel a chill at 40° and at 97° there was enough airflow to dry the sweat.

Not Summer Boots
I purchased these because I had an accident before that broke my lower leg and was concerned about safety. After getting these boots on and driving around, I definitely felt much more confident. They fit true to size, easy to put on and take off, and comfortable enough to walk around in once broken in.
However as the weather started getting into the 70s-80s, these boots became too hot. Granted I generally have hot feet in the warmer months, and once you're moving they feel fine. But if you really need airflow around the foot region, look elsewhere. Also not recommended if you're walking around a lot in the summer, unless you have a change of shoes for when you stop.

Great summer boot
The foot bed is wide enough to accommodate most feet. I don't need the slightly extra width but it leaves room for air to circulate. Once broken in they went unnoticed which is what I want with most of my gear. The sole has good grip and walking a moderate amount isn't an issue.
Revzilla was great about returning a pair of boots that weren't as comfortable and making an exchange. Footwear (and helmets) is one of those iffy things size wise but I found their charts to be accurate and their return policy forgiving.

No Real Complaints, GREAT boots.
These boots are great for my everyday commute to work. I live in SoCal so it gets hot and I typically don’t ride when it’s wet out. The boots flow a nice amount of air and feel very sturdy. They took a couple of days to break in, but feel great when they do. I was concerned having the mesh panels, but that’s gone now that I have the boots. If you have wide feet these boots are great (I have a EE width). If you aren't sure about the sizing give the Gear Geeks a call (they run large) and don't go by the american sizing listed, its way off! Ankle protection is good and you can’t even tell it is there. My only gripe (typical of most motorcycle boots I’ve owned) is that the foot beds thin and are horrible after about a day. I swapped them out with some foot beds from my local sporting goods store and wow what a difference. All and all a great touring style boot that flows air and won't kill the budget.The boots are very well constructed and won’t disappoint.

Alpinestars Net Air Boots
These boots definitely Flow Air! No Complaints about that! Got your feet behind some fairings, hang them out on the Highway pegs and Presto Air flows through! I had to wear the boots for a half of an afternoon before they started breaking in and Sure Enough, the footbed started molding to my feet. Looks and Feels Quality for my money..

Great three season boot
Putting together my riding outfit. These boots were the last purchase and it took me some time to pick out what I needed. I work second shift so I needed boots that protected me but were cooler in the summer heat but also kept my feet comfortable in the cold nights. They were stiff for the first two rides but now they are like good shoes. Easy on and off. I had to change my shift style because they are higher over my toes than my previous boots. They held the shifter a little higher and that caused me to miss the next higher gear. I just have to make sure I drop my toe a little lower as I up shift. Good looking boots that fit my needs.

Nice boots with a flaw
I like these boots unfortunately the stitching and glue has torn off on the lower part of one of them. It could be just be a bad bad boot because it has only happened to one of them. Other than that I like the boots. They run about a size big just like I read in some of the other reviews.

Not so good to step on the brake pedal on a custom with foward controls, but it's worth the price!
