Cortech Latigo Waterproof RR Boot
The boot is very comfortable and allows some airflow. The one con is that its not the best quality. The stiching is starting to loosen up and I only had them for less then a month. This is also my first pair of race boots so I cant compare much, and think that I will have to get some new ones next season. Definetly worth investing a lil more for a pair of better boots but will do for that price.

Great boot for the price.
Bought these for a track day / riding around on the streets. Great protection features, very comfortable. Will be riding a lot off road but won't be using these...not enough stiffness, but hey, these are great for commuting, that's why I bought them. Haven't rode in the rain yet so can't say anything about waterproof-ability. Bought a size 12 originally but had to return for 12.5. Forgot to account for thickness of WP layer. They're hot in the sunny days though. Rode in sunny 85 degree Washington heat yeaterday, felt like an oven. Feels great while riding though, especially for the price. Super quick service from Revzilla too!!

Great fit - Comfort
I had a lot of reservations about buying riding boots online. The ones I had always tried on in store never fit, as they were always fairly cramped and too narrow.
I am a size 12.5 in regular shoes/boots, and the size 47 fits perfectly. The boots do require some break in, but it wasn't for very long. Just walk around the house with them on for a bit, and they will soon loosen up.
I have had them a month or so now and they are perfectly broken in and very comfortable.
The construction is very good, and looks and feels like a quality product. Cortech is a Tourmaster brand, so that is not surprising. I feel as though they would have great protection if the need ever arises.
My pair are definitely waterproof, as they have been through normal rain, I commute with these on pretty much everyday, and a very heavy thunderstorm.
I am totally pleased with them so far, and would recommend them to someone looking for waterproof boots that are on the sportier side.

Great Value - Good Protection
I was familiar with these boots from using them in the dirt at Rich Oliver's Mystery School so I knew a lot about how they wear and feel in advance. They are well made and provide great protection. Recently I had these at a track day and felt well protected and comfortable.
The velcro is quite strong and the zipper pull has some attached to it also so that when you pull the zipper up it stays in place under the flaps. On the way back from track day it rained so I got a chance to see how they perform in the wet. My feet stayed completely dry. There is a small vent with a forward facing scoop but I never felt any air flow or water - it must be above the Hipora layer to aid in vapor removal.
Ankle protection seems good and I would expect these boots to help prevent or mitigate any twists.
Fit is roomy. I usually wear a 9.5 and got the 9. The footbed is wide too so my wide feet are comfortable.

I picked out this boot from watching the video and reading other riders reviews and I couldn't be more pleased. For $170 you couldn't ask for a much better boot. Offers great protection and comfort. Anyone looking for a great boot at low cost needs to look no further. Thanks Revzilla!

sturdy, comfortable, but not the best airflow
Great boots. Look ready for the track or for commuting in the rain. There is always a tradeoff for breathability and waterproofing, and after a couple hours in the boots your feet will get sweaty, but they will not get rained on.

Best race style boots for the money
I absolutely love these boots. They are very comfortable and they offer great protection. You simply can not beat the price. It feels strange to ride with anything else on my feet now.

Good boot for great price
I like these a lot. First thing out of the box though for whatever reason my right foot had the internal slider piece crunching my little toe, left was perfect right away. I squeezed the boot flat a few times, unscrewed and re-screwed the slider and it worked, and now after several long rides it fits great. The boot is a little warm, but I am on a naked bike (2007 Aprilia Tuono) and I did not want a boot with too much airflow, so for me this is the better of the two extremes. The boots look stylish, and get super comfy after breaking in. They are hard to walk in the first few times, have patience!
