Cortech Latigo Waterproof RR Boot
Decent Boots for the money.
Good fit and comfortable. Not bad to walk in. Good protection.

Good Value for the price
Very good features for the price, initial quality seems excellent, and durability yet to be determined. Low air flow was what was expected for a waterproof boot.
The boot is actually euro sized but listed by ZLA with common U.S. sizes. I always use a size 12, but a 47 in euro sizes. I ordered a size 12 and found it a little too snug and discovered it had a size 46 tag. ZLA's 12.5 is a size 47; did an exchange and the 47 fit just right.
I am a sport tourer, and found these boots to be comfortable enough for short walks, although I pack a pair of tennis shoes for all day destination walking.

Great boot for the price
This is not the stiffest, most protective boot, but for the money it is the best around. It fits like most other brands. I tried on A* and Dianese. The 44 is every company seemed to fit about the same but the Cortech gave me a bit more width in the toe box. I just did my first track day in these and that they were great. I also commute daily in them and change shoes once at the office. Great boot overall boot at any price and certainly the absolute best for the price.

This is a great product from cortech
I was not a fan of hi riding boots but when I decided to start taking my bike to the track I decided to give them a try I will say that these cortech boots were my first pair of high riding boots but they will not be my last after putting them on they were a little stiff which is what I expected them to be but once they broke in I was very surprised at how comfortable they were and now they are the only boots I wear no matter where I'm going I will say they can get a little warm when riding in extreme heat but its not unbearable i do live in Texas and it gets extremely hot during the summer so I don't see a way around boots being warm

Bang for the bucks!
Great investment! In my opinion, these boots match up to higher brand names, but cost a lot cheaper. I love the looks, bought some 'Angelus leather paints' and customers my own color to match my tracksuit. It is a little too tight for me at the toe-end, but I kinda prefer it that way and let it stretch over time. Plus 'Youtube' has videos showing how to stretch leathers. Still able to walk comfortably with little restrictions. Protection wise...can't say much, but it does feel pretty solid. Highly recommend! Also bought gloves and painted to match!

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.
