BUY THESE. These boots are amazing. Extremely comfortable to wear around and not too stylish where you feel awkward walking around the street with them. The ankle protection is the only downside as it is somewhat soft (no hard inserts like other boots out there). However in a fall I am sure it will have some prevention of my ankle getting crushed (I'm just not 100% confident). The toe box and heel are very well-protected - I think I wouldn't even be able feel the bike if it fell onto these 2 parts. The toe box itself is very responsive when it comes to shifting - I definitely get a good feel of the lever as I shift up. The materials on this boot seem to be long-lasting, I have had incidents where I was sure would end in a scuff but there are no marks! I've had coolant and oils drip onto them but they wipe right off as well. I wear a size 9.5 in my Chucks along with most Nike's and I went with a 43 - perfect fit. March 13, 2015
Great Boots! I generally wear 11-11.5's for USA sizing, and almost every Euro piece of footware I own is 44. I have leather shoes in 44, some Cortech boots in 44, and now these A* shoes in 44. They were a little tight at first, but so were my Cortechs and after maybe 250-300 miles, and plenty of walking around the house I got them worked in and very comfortable. The biggest thing I like about these over my other boots is they are short. My other boots are full shin coverage for track days, but are a pain to walk in. These almost feel like sneakers to walk around town in, but still have ankle protection, stiff/grippy soles, and toe guards. Unless someone purposely looks at my shoes, nobody even notices I have motorcycle boots on! Look good. March 6, 2015
Great bang for the buck I've been riding with 5 different types of riding boots so far, and these are the most suitable for warm to really hot weather.(tested in over 105 degrees). They are rally light weighted but still fills highly protecting. The design is solid classic and I had no problem walking all day in them, and even with dress pants. February 16, 2015
Great shoe! I just finished riding ≈300 miles around Las Vegas in these shoes. The were extremely comfortable. Lots of airflow while the bike was moving, and not too hot while sitting still. They offered a good compromise between fashion and function. I will be wearing these as I commute to work, and feel that these are not going to scream race poseur if I happen to wear them with a pair of jeans. They have a good stiff sole, and adequate support around the ankle. Getting in and out is very easy due to the side zipper. I definitely do not hesitate buying them. February 12, 2015
these are the best boots I have ever worn for an everyday ride. I love these shoes. I would definitely recommend these to any rider out there. Super fast shipping. And the fit is perfect. Thanks revzilla. February 11, 2015
Perfect Boots! I've had so many compliments on the looks of these boots. They are true to size and fit like a glove. I love the fact that they just come over your ankles. It makes wearing them a pleasure. It also makes taking them on and off very easy. You can ride and walk around in them like normal shoes. You don't feel like you have bulky boots on. They fit perfect but look more like shoes under your pants. Most people don't believe I have boots on until I pull up my pants and show them. The features, comfort, and looks of this shoe make it a winner! January 15, 2015
Great commuting boots Great commuting boots and reasonably comfortable to walk around the office in. The only drawback is when it rains the venting panels on top of the boots lets water in so for short rides in the rain it should be fine but longer wet rides will not be comfortable. January 13, 2015
would recommend. These have been great boots for me so far. I commute back and forth to work and school. not to bulky, i can feel the gear shifter and brake pedal just fine. a lot more protection than the tennis shoes i were wearing but definitely not a track day boot. Overall they look good and are comfy for long periods. 10/10 would bang. November 18, 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.

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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
