Cortech Latigo Waterproof RR Boot
boot is true to size. looks well put together and for the price its perfect.
i need more time on it but initial impressions are good. they are really comfy. as for durability only time will tell. so far so good though. i must admit though that im not hard on equipment and my stuff lasts a long time because i don't beat them up. lets see how this boot stands up to my gearne (which lasted 10 years haha) and a-stars after a year.

Good entry level full boot.
I wish they had more half sizes as I wear a US 9.5, the us10 is a eu44, I wear a eu43. but the 10 does it s job well enough.
If I had the 9 I think it would be too small and the 10 is just about the right width for my foot although a tad too long.
The toe sliders seem cheap to me and the screws holding them in seem as though they would grind off before the slider did very much on its own.
The shin padding is very robust feeling and the heels feel nice and thick.
My foot feels extremely secure after zipping an Velcroing up. The zipper even has a Velcro tag (see picture) so there is no chance of it coming undone while riding. There is space inside the shin for your pants to go under instead of over the boot which I like.
Overall I'm pleased with my purchase with the exception that most of the half sizes being unavailable.

Great fitting boot
I wore these around the condo a couple of nights to fit them in and they are just great. On the first ride, last weekend in New Hampshire, they kept my feet warm, it wasn't raining but im sure they will be great in the rain. Protection seems like it will be very good if I ever need it. Traction at stoplights is excellent, notch on side of boot is nice on footpeg when getting down and dirty on the curves.

Good bang for the buck
I wear a size 14 in every major shoe brand. I ordered a 14 and was at first very unsure the boot would work out; it was pretty tight and narrow. However, as someone else noted, this boot has a LOT of break in to do. I wore them around the house for about two days and that made a big difference. After several more hours of riding they felt great and I had all the room I needed (I want them to feel at least a little bit snug).
I haven't tested the fuller waterproof functionality of them, but I can tell you that the little vent on the side does allow a very minute amount of air to vent in. I don't believe that will allow water in, but it will help for people like me that only have one boot for both winter and summer, so at least my feet won't roast in July.
I've put about 8000 miles on these boots so far and they've held up great. Zippers are fine, velcro and stitching is fine, the rubber sole is still like new as I don't walk much in them. For the price I was extremely happy.

Good for the price
These are some decent boots for the price. They wouldn't be comfortable to walk in for distance, but are good on the bike. I bought these for when the rain/cold weather is out, so I don't have too much time with them while riding. I also have the TCX X street shoes, and I use them more often for their comfort.

Good product, Wish I had known about break in.
These boots have a pretty steep break in so while I went a half size up (And I'm not totally disappointed) I think I would've been okay with my shoe size. I do have wide feet and find it very difficult to size shoes. As far as airflow, Great while you're moving but if riding below about 20 they can get pretty hot. Kept my feet completely dry though and inspire alot more confidence. Like the boots, LOVE Revzilla and I would definitely recommend.

Good first impressions
Firstly, let me say I am quite pleasantly surprised by how fast the delivery of these boots were, especially since they were shipped into Canada. Though there was a brief mix up due to an incomplete address (my mistake) but knowing they were in the local area within a couple of days kept the anticipation high all week as I sorted it out with canada post.
As for the boot, my foot is kind of between sizes of a 9.5-10 so I opted for the larger but I wish I stayed with the lower because these boots were good and snug but still had a bit of give due to the leather fabric and slightly wider footbed. I think it won't necessarily be too big of a problem though.
For the pictures available, it unfortunately didny depict that well of how the shoe looks top view while with a pair of jeans so I wasn't too happy as they look wide to my usual pair of riding boots Thor 50/50. With that I was expecting a more silvery for the toe slider but that turned out more ivory than silver.
Overall I'm happy with the product especially for the value but just some things to think and look out for.
It'd be nice to see a picture or view done for the review video, as I know there are some from the side views.
