Zipper broke after 2 months Had these for two months before the zipper on the left shoe split and I was unable to repair it. Also had an issue with the heel protection; it kept getting caught on the left side heel guard. Ended up throwing some gorilla tape over it but the zipper broke shortly afterwards so ... here I am shopping for something else. October 25, 2015
This product has great quality Excellent product (zipper, velcro, rubber sole, materials, all excellent). I wear a size 10.5 Nike running shoe, and the Size 45 fits perfect. If you have an extra wide foot don't buy these. Otherwise its a great product, I no longer miss shift into 2nd gear! September 29, 2015
Motorcycle boots without the moto boot price Pretty good boot that looks good with jeans. Only thing I don't like is that they don't flow as much air as I would like. With that said, they feel very solid/rigid while providing enough flexibility that walking around in them isn't a problem. Still feel like they are a lot of bang for the buck. September 29, 2015
Great Protection, excellent venting I recently, as in 4 days ago, was hit by a car on my left side breaking off my foot peg and slicing my radiator hose. Subsequently my left foot was hit in the accident and it fared pretty good considering. I didn't crash, but I ended up breaking a few bones in my foot as a result of the accident. Had I been wearing regular shoes, I believe my ankle would have been broken as well as more bones, or worse. I would buy these again, however I'm thinking of upgrading to higher "racing" style boots when I get back to riding again in a few months. November 8, 2015
Great Boot I have owned multiple boots over the last 20 plus years and I can honestly say that I love the fit and protection these boots provide. As far as walking, you can certainly do some walking and forget you are wearing your boots. September 19, 2015
Like others have said they run about a size large I am glad I followed the advise to buy a size smaller, I am usually 8.5 to 9 on men shoe sizes and the size 42 (size 8 US) fits me perfectly. I have a wider foot than most, which sometimes is an issue when I buy shoes, but I had no problems with this boot. They look nice, and have ggod protection, which is what I was looking for. They are comfortable and could wear them all day if needed. The sole is a bit stiff, but that is good for riding motorcycle. September 18, 2015
Lightweight and comfortable I'm very particular when it comes to the weight of my footwear... The LIGHTER the BETTER! And the shoes are lightweight and comfortable. Would definitely recommend these to anyone looking. September 17, 2015
Great boot, espeially for walking These boots are great everyday boots. They are extremely comfortable walking, i commute to work and have a 10 minute walk from where i park to my building, these are as good or even better than regular shoes. The material on top could be a little firmer, i find a little discomfort when upshifting on the top of my foot. September 15, 2015

Donald R: Lance C.

The boot in the picture and the boot in the video are in fact the same. The video makes the boot look slightly gray / black, but it is actually black.
Hope that is of some help.

Aaron U asked: I'm interested into getting this boot or even the S MX-2, I was curious how the fit is with wide feet, would it be comfortable or would it be a tight fit? Feb 22, 2015

Erik B: I'm not sure about the fitment for wider feet than my own, but I can say I love these boots. I've gone through about 5 pair in the last year and a half and these boots (S-MX 1) has the best fit and comfort for me. At first the height of the boot would dig into the side of my leg but that went away after about a week of riding. Other than that, the feel is fabtastic! This is my opinion and solely based on my own experience! To each its own... Feb 22, 2015
Reply to Erik Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jason K: I have pretty standard width feet and I've got some room on both sides. Boots are comfortable all day. Order from RevZilla though. They'll take the return and won't charge you anything extra!!! Just make sure you walk around on some carpet and leave the tags on them! Mar 19, 2015
Reply to Jason Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Joe N: Aaron, I usually get shoes in size 13 with a regular width and sometimes a wide depending on the shoe. I ordered the S-MX1 in size 13.5 . The fit is very good, not tight at all. I always wear a boot sock or a thick sock with them. Can wear them all day on the bike. Feb 22, 2015
Reply to Joe Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Dennis H: I usually wear a 9 Wide shoe, size 43 in European sizing. The boots are very slightly snug when I first put them on. After walking a bit they warm up and stretch. The fit is fine after that. YMMV. Feb 23, 2015
Reply to Dennis Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Dennis H: I wear regular width, not wide, shoes. I have these boots in size 44, and they fit well. I think they would be tight on a wide foot. Feb 22, 2015
Reply to Dennis Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Benjamin L: I have wide feet, typically wear a 10.5 US, and the 44s fit very well, no issues with the width for me. Feb 23, 2015
