Snug fit on wide foot I have wide feet and sometimes I'll go up a shoe size if a wide version isn't available. With these, I stuck with my real shoe size and they fit fine. They're just a bit snug but not uncomfortable. If I didn't have wide feet I think they'd feel a little loose. They're better on the bike than sitting around or walking. Adequate for walking around but I'm glad to sacrifice a little walking comfort for more safety. They look better in person than in the photo. Airflow is okay but nothing to write home about. Easy on and off and I'm glad I don't have laces to worry about. September 15, 2014
Great design! Very stylish! This is a very stylish and comfty riding boots! Make sure to order one size smaller. I'm a 9.5 but when I used the euro chart and ordered size 44 it was big.. So I returned it and got a size 43. Fits like a glove.. Also, I can't say enough how revzilla customer service is the best! Got my shoes on Wednesday. Request return and ordered that day and my new boots came on Friday! September 8, 2014
Not especially comfortable Recommended with reservations. Mine, which are several years old now, have a ridge under the toe-box that intrudes maybe 3/8 inch into the interior of the shoe. I don't think I have especially big or sensitive toes, but I find the ridge both uncomfortable and annoying. Other than that, these would be excellent boots, and I'd give them 4 or 5 stars.

Great summer riding boots Bought these boots over a year ago and the status report is: They are still awesome! Great fit Perfect for hot weather riding Decent protection These were my first pair of 'riding boots', and I have loved riding in them everyday. Although, If you do track days / more aggressive riding, I suggest getting full boots [for more protection]. August 26, 2014
Decent Riding Shoes These shoes may look a little bulky, but they aren't too bad overall. I wear 9.5 in Converse so I originally went with the size 44 pair. Turns out they were a bit too large, so I exchanged it for a 43. Fits a lot better than the 44. These shoes seem to be pretty durable with extra protection around the outer edges of your feet. It has decent air flow while riding on the highways, and is pretty comfortable to walk around in. I definitely recommend it. August 25, 2014
Good summer boot So I purchased these boots to replace a set of TCX summer boots. I was looking for something with a bit more protection and no laces, which I feel is a hazard of getting caught in my chain. After looking around, I got these for the warmer weather. These have been a really nice find. Yes, they are a bit narrow, but that is typical of Alpinestars as they do tend to be a bit more European in size. Ordered my usual Euro size and they fit perfectly. They are light weight, though have more solid protection than the TCX boots. I especially like the toe slider and larger shifter patch. Also, they flow a decent amount of air and you foot will get cold if the temperatures are below 60 degrees or so. Overall a good choice for summer commuting. Highly recommended. August 25, 2014

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.
