Cortech Latigo Air RR Boots
Great first boot!
These are my first motorcycle boots and they continue to serve their purpose well. I use them for commuting. They offer superior protection compared to the Nikes I was wearing and it only took me a couple rides to get used to the different feel. My only complaint is that they reduce the feel for the rear break -- which has caused me to lock up the rear wheel a couple times. I'm used to it now, but it took some getting used to. As far as entry level boots go, these are economical and do offer additional protection. I recommend them to anybody looking to start wearing riding boots.

Fantastic Value; My first boot!
I recently picked up this Cortech Latigo Air RR boot for my first weekend warrior/beginner track day boot, and I must say I'm very pleased! They are affordable, light, flow reasonably well, and are very feature rich for the cost. Definitely would recommend to any of my friends!

Great boots for the price!
Always a bit reticent when ordering boots online. I was fortunate that the size choice went from 11 to 12US, and I'm usually an US11.5. I went for the 12 and i'm very happy I did so.
I taken them for several runs so far and I'm happy to date. There's a natural airflow through the boots that keeps your feet cool and happy.

Great budget boot.
This is a really nice boot for its pricepoint. It is extremely comfortable both on and off the bike, fits true to size, and looks great. It also have pretty good protection but I recently highsided @ about 60mph at the track with these on and still hurt ligaments in my ankle, but not badly and that is still not bad considering the severity of the wreck and the same may have happened even with a higher end boot. They held up pretty well too with relatively little wear despite a decent slide. Overall I am very happy with these and would recommend them for sure.

Good boot from heel to toe.....
I have had owned these boots for about 9 months and they have provided great comfort and protection. I am your average weekend rider and visit the local tracks of Texas often. I have to retire this set of boots as my last track day at COTA the track at the toe of my boot. I will order a new set just for the street but will upgrade for track days. The boots are well made and a great buy for your first pair.

Not bad for the price, limited ankle protection
I spent a bit more on boots than I was planning because I wanted better protection and a full boot. These look really good, seem to offer a ton of features for the money and have plastic pieces all over (that must be good right?).
10 minutes after getting the bike registered I ended up lowsiding at about 20mph in a left turn. My gloves didn't have a scratch, my jacket was just a bit dusty and my jeans had a dime sized hole in the knee.
The Cortechs have scratches/rash and the edge of the shift pad is starting to come off. My ankle though is completely jacked up, swollen, and discolored a week later. These boots, in hindsight, don't appear to offer much lateral stability. I'm not sure how much you'd have to spend to get that kind of protection.
Overall, not a bad buy for the prices, comfort, style etc but have realistic expectations about protection.

good boots for the cost
There isn't much to say about these boots. They aren't top of the line, but they are budget friendly. There is very good airflow and the fit for me felt a bit loose. I had to Velcro the boot pasted the intended fit... This is probably because I am not tucking in leather track pants, but thinner jean pant legs.
Break in period took about 8 hours of riding time... it feels very uncomfortable the first time riding and I feel less connected to the bike (lower sense of control standing on pegs). After break in it was ok...
I expected boots to give me more sensitivity for feeling the bike and road, but maybe my expectations were unrealistic... keep in mind I'm used to riding in sneakers a lot of the time.

Big for me
I believe I didn't pay enough attention in the videos and sizing.
They are bigger than my size. I bought a 43 and should be 42. When you see lots of models with different matching to US sizes you can get confused.
As I don't live in the US, returning back is very difficult, so I am selling them.
But I have ride twice using them and they are really good. I will by another pair, now in correct size.
