Cortech Vice WP Riding Shoes
Great shoe, great price
These are pretty great. Not too heavy like my more purpose-driven Alpine Stars boots, though of course you get far less protection with these. Overall, I think it's a great blend of comfort, style, and protection. Great for my everyday commutes. I've walked around in them all day on multiple occasions and they're fine, even in warmer weather (~75F).

Better than riding with Vans.
Second time I went out riding with these shoes...the top of the shoe on my shifting foot RIPPED! what the heck?? The shell that encases the feet digs into the back of my heel also. These aren't very comfortable to walk in, so the idea that you could wear these for riding and not have to change shoes when you get to your destination is possible, its just not comfy.
The reason I gave it 2 stars is because it does offer some protection and some is better than none. I was bummed out these shoes ripped, the only reason I got these is because I figured they could withstand that wear and not rip.
I wear an 11 in sneakers. For the Coretech Vice WP I wear a size 10.

Most comfortable bike shoes I've ever owned!
Right out of the box these shoes fit perfectly and were very comfortable. I wore them for long hours in extremely hot weather and I was very happy with them. Thanks for offering such a great riding shoe.

bad purchase for the $$
Protection and comfort are great but poor quality glues and materials the first day i put these on i notice the black stripe on sole has this paint or ink that never drys and in just 15 minutes walking around the house getting my things ready to ride the cortech logo came off the rear of one shoe and the other was halfways to come off 4 hours later i took them off and it left my light gray socks with this ink or paint thats in shoe fabrics i uploaded picture an with the glues used to make these shoes i doubt they are water proof i dont think it would keep water from going in I wont buy this brand ever again

Overall this is a good shoe but the shoe sole grip is poor
A comfortable, solid shoe that looks good. A problem I found straight away was that the shoe soles didn't grip on the foot pegs and slipped forward while riding. I got a shoe repair shop to glue a low rubber heel on them and they now catch the pegs to stop the sliding.

They look cool but...
They look cool, feel fine but they're definitely not the best quality. I've probably used them 10 times and the leather(?) shell is splitting. They were cheap so i'm not that disappointment.. i'll ride with them till they completely open then i'll wear the other boots i have... overall ... meh

Cheaply made but look good
Decided on these for my first pair of motorcycle boots because of the casual look and cheaper price. You definitely get what you pay for here... at a lower end price I wasn't expecting top notch quality or finish but was disappointed to see the sloppy work on this boot. The seams were mismatched and unfinished, the thin black line along the sole was a mess, and a piece fell off the heel before I even left the house (see pic).
These were stiff, tight, and squeaky just walking around inside but I have a feeling they'll break in with time. The footbed is narrow, something I don't really ever have a problem with. I found the the heel cup to be tight and uncomfortable, again, not a problem I normally have. The length of the boot was accurate to my sneaker sizing, however.
Other than the small Cortech logo falling off in their first hour while I was walking around the house, everything seems cheaply made but gets the job done. Some sloppy minor details but unless you have them up to your face, a lot of those little flaws can slide. Mostly just good looking which is why I won't be returning them.
So, if you buying these because they look cool, there you go. But if you think you're getting a bargain on a high quality item... you're not.
