Astars for life Fit great, feel durable, look superb! Can't tighten the top of the boot, but can tighten where your ankle bends. Could wear them all day if needed. August 10, 2015
The perfect summer riding shoe I happened to see these shoes in a store where I live so I was able to take a close look at them before deciding if I wanted to spend $$$ on them. I have riding boots but they are waterproof and defiantely too warm to wear in the summer in VA Beach. These shoes are amazing. Not only am I able to ride in them all day for fun, but I went to Busch Gardens theme park from 10am till 4pm, walked over 5-6 miles, rode rides and completely forgot that I even wore my riding shoes! They are that comfortable. They feel like regular sneakers and look as such when wearing pants. It's a bit awkward to wear shorts with them, but that is only because of the ankle protection that rises up more than a regular shoe. I changed out my toe sliders for blue ones which is kind of a pain with the way the clips are installed on the side of the shoe but that's my only complaint. They get moderate amounts of airflow in them, even on the hottest days in southern Virginia. The soles are grippy on the pavement but I have noticed if your near any sort of gravel or sand and it's dry/wet they loose some of their grip. I have a FZ8 which is a heavier bike so getting a good footing on the ground is important to me as soon as I place my foot down, especially on a crowned road. I would highly recommend these; my fiancée has them as well as family friends that ride after they saw us wearing them. Great buy! June 22, 2015
Nice and comfy I bought this boot because I needed it to take my MSF basic rider course. I wanted something not incredibly expensive, but something I could continue using as I begin my journey into motorcycling. I plan on using a motorcycle to commute primarily. At $160, this fit the bill. They were incredibly comfortable the entire 8 - 9 hours of class time and show little to no signs of wear despite my terrible shifting. I normally wear a size US 8.5 - 9 and the Euro size 43 fit perfectly. August 4, 2015
Good Shoe This is a good shoe for riding around town. It is comfortable enough and the air flow keeps your feet from getting too hot. They are not as comfortable for walking around in all day, but that's obviously not the main purpose of the shoe, so it doesn't matter to me as much. Overall, its a good shoe. August 3, 2015
Everything I was looking for Finally, I found a pair of boots that both fit well and are comfortable!! Run a little large in size, something to keep in mind! Love them! July 28, 2015
S-MX1 Awesome boots! These boots are great. They are surprisingly comfortable, to ride with and to just walk around in. The side zipper and Velcro make them easy on-easy off, and my foot feels secure. Feels like they would hold up well if you go down. My only one complaint is that the toe slider looks a bit goofy. If A-star could make the toe slider functional without looking like a shiny wart, it would make an awesome boot even better. July 27, 2015
Only Size that fits I wear a size 50 shoe so not much choice for me out there. July 27, 2015
Great boot for a great price Lovely boot, comfortable, cool, and looks great. Buy These! July 20, 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

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

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

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
