Cortech Vice WP Riding Shoes
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.

Garbage...to put it nicely
While these shoes look nice, that's where it ends. I received 2 left shoes, so it was already off to a bad start. Then I quickly noticed that the bottoms of the soles were covered in some odd oily substance. Also, the black line on the sides of the white soles is some kind of never drying ink or something...just greasy and smearing everywhere. All symptoms of coming from a cheap factory somewhere in Asia. Look elsewhere.

Imperfect Build and Sub-par Quality
Came home, opened box, walked to kitchen and noticed black smudges on the soles. I can’t contest to the protection because I simply took of the shoes / boots and realized all of the rubber had a film of grease. I took a microfiber remove the black smudges thinking some mysterious oil blot fell from the sky and ruined my new gear.
That wasn't the case.... The black lines around the shoe to contrast the white were drawn on with some sort of grease crayola! When I tried to wipe it off it just got worse smudging on the rough surface of the sole making this grease Crayola like stuff very difficult to remove. Not only that there were imperfections that varied from one shoe to the other. For example, the reflector on the back is a different shape and size from one shoe to the other.
Why the heck would a manufacture put a silicone grease like substance that resembles glue all over the rubber sole? Upon further inspection the left shoe was coated with dirty gunk. Right shoe free of anything that resembled dirt. Why? Because the left shoe was soaked with glue. Either that or I hopped around in the back yard on one foot. Again because of some sticky silicone glue like substance.
More about the sole of the shoe boot. It was shaped like an inverted "U" meaning that the lateral and medial portion of the sole was 2-3 centimeters lower than the middle. I don't know if this is a safety measure or added comfort but I have never seen a shoe like that.
Positive side, they are comfortable.
