Cortech Latigo Air RR Boots
Was sceptical about the price but after about a month and 3000km these were a good purchase. We'll review again after a year.

Comfortable with great airflow
The boots are comfortable to walk around in, even with the pre-shape, and fit true to size. I'm going to be having to wear these on a plane in a few weeks, and am fairly confident they will be easy to travel in.
I typically ride around town with my soles fairly parallel to the ground, and wasn't noticing much airflow on a muggy 90 degree TX day. However, I pointed my toes down a bit (putting the pegs in the notches at the heel) and they really opened up; even at 25 mph they were quite breezy.
There's a lot of protection here for the price, especially for a ventilated boot.

All you need for a small buck
Great boot for riding in warm weather. If you're going to ride in rain/cold weather it will be a bit to much airflow coming in/through the boots. But for warm weather conditions its good

Good for the price
Bought these for track days. They were the cheapest I could find. I just wanted something that would give me access to the track. The price is a lot better then spending $400 on a different pair that do the same thing. They were great on the track and I could wear them all day with out discomfort.

Comfortable due to great fit
Extremely comfortable. They felt broken in the second time I wore them. I normally wear a size 11-11.5 shoe. However, the 11 was a little snug so went with the size 12. Perfect fit! A lot of great features for a great price.

These boots are worth way more than the $150 range
I got these boots before I took a motorcycle safety course and I loved the way they hugged my ankle and lower calf nicely. I was in the rain for over 4 hours and they did not get wet and they aren't even waterproof. I was overall happy with the boot, price, shipping and everything else.

Great airflow, great value, Wide wide
I have worn these boots in temps from 50's to 80's and they have been great for airflow. No swamp-foot and you definitely feel the air moving.
Fit: I wear a 14 in my normal running shoes (Brooks/Montrail) and ordered a 14 in these boots. the length is perfect, but the footbed is really really wide. Not enough to make me dislike the boots, but I am used to a more snug/secure fit.
Entry/Exit is easy with half zip and full velco. My boot does have a flap of material (inside boot, just in front of zipper bottom, that seems to have been folded over and stiched extra. It's sort of a "flap" of material that I can feel when putting them on, but not after a minute or two of wearing. Left foot only, no weird flap on right boot. I probably could have returned them for 'quality exchange' but it's not that bad and I didn't want to be without boots during all the shipping.
I tried to take the toe sliders off to check them out, but the nuts that are mounted in the boot would just spin. Again only on the left boot. maybe I got a dud of a left boot... ?
To sum up: Great value, pretty comfortable, not really as "secure" as I would like because of loose foot section.

After asking around and finding out just how many people i knew actually wear or have worn these boots and had good things to say, i had to try them out! First impressions: a little stiff, a little bulky, slightly loose around the ankle. But after breaking them in and finding the sweet spot for my foot controls, i couldn't be happier. The stiffness goes away after about a week of wearing them. They also formed to my foot a little better as well. They seem to be pretty darn durable, I am by no means easy on my foot wear and these things still look new after about a month of commuting. If you are debating the air vs the non perf. i would say go with the air unless you ride in cold weather below 40 deg. The air in cold weather with a good pair of socks is very doable.
I ride a 2009 GSX-R 600.
