Cortech Latigo Waterproof RR Boot
Was caught in the rain on 11/08/2015 going to Sacramento IMS. This boot is good for light rain not heavy or moderate rain.
It's a good boot for fall riding but will not buy again since these kept my feet wet and miserable
Great boot like everyone else is stating but will have to step up with something that has gore tex

They're nice boots, I've only had the opportunity to ride in them a few times since I'd bought them a few months ago. Not used to the restriction, but that's my own fault. The boots themselves are well built, and I love the lip behind the zipper that waterproofs it. Speaking of which, 100% waterproof, not a drop of rain reached my feet!

Crashed on first ride with new boots
Went down at 50mph. These boots surely saved my ankles and feet, and sustained incredibly minimal damage. My $200 textile jacket was somewhat shredded and my squid legs hurt like a giant b!tch, but these boots held up wonderfully and are some of the cheapest high-ankle sport boots available. Thanks for saving my toes!

Great boots! Fit per revzilla sizing(true to size). Waterproof! I have worn them in heat indexes of 105+ and not had any issues with heat but I tend to have cold feet. I have also had to walk and sit in these boots for hours post ride and not had any issues. I do foresee these not lasting quite as long as would have liked but I would certainly order them again for the money

boots run small vs alpinestars
ordered a pair, delivered fast like Revzilla does, tried them on.
compared to alpinestars, they run small and narrow for the same size and very little room to tuck pants in. Nice overall boots, but zipper was very hard to pull, even with boots off.
I have Alpinstars SMX-2 in 44 EUR/9.5 US
Those cortech were 10 US/44 EUR. I'll recommend to go a size bigger.

Great Water Proof Riding Boots
This boots fit excellent. I did have to tighten the screws holding the toe guards in place. The boots do not leak at all in the rain and are quite comfortable on or off the bike. I walk around in them and have had no problems with wearing them all day.

As soon as I saw them out of the box I noticed that they seem to be very well constructed. Materials seem to be good quality, and the boots are exactly what I wanted. Protective and waterproof.
Haven't tested enough, but my few months with them have been great.
Fitting is almost perfect for me. My feet fits perfect, but I have wider than normal calves, so I have to fold my pants up, the boots fit good though.
But that's me, I have really big calves because I play a lot of soccer.
The boots tend to be hot, nothing that bother.
They are comfortable, for riding, but uncomfortable for walking, so I recommend to bring your shoes with you.
In a very long commuting in the city, they tend to get uncomfortable, I'm speaking of a 2 hr commuting.
Haven't tested them in rain nor crash, hope to never test their protective qualities.

Stylish, Protective, But Not Entirely Comfortable
I decided to give this boot a try based on the balance of value, style, and protection. Unfortunately this one didn't entirely work out for me.
I normally wear size 11 boots and shoes, so that's what I ordered—even expecting, based on the video review by Anthony, that the sizing would be a bit wide (since my left foot is just slightly larger than my right).
The boot comes on and goes off easily once opened, and despite having no buckles, the velcro-and-zipper closure works great, with no heel lift. Even though the RR waterproof version is not perforated, it still does vent away excess heat and humidity, as promised.
The exterior protection on the shin, toes, heel, and ankles is quite sturdy, so that's also a bonus. Even with all the armor and the stiff sole, the boot still walks easily.
However, the boot's greatness is a bit lacking in in its sizing and construction. The toe is just a bit narrow around the end under the TPU slider so, inside the boot, my last three toes felt a bit cramped, though not so tight as to cut off circulation. In addition, the plastic for the outside ankle protection ended up pressing too tightly into my ankle bones to be very comfortable even through the interior padding, and that was even after wearing them around my house for a few hours and walking up and down the hall quite a bit to try to warm them up.
Overall, the price for these is great, they look awesome, and the protection looks very promising, but I'd recommend them only for those with a slightly narrower footing or willingness to pad the interior against your ankle.
