Great shoe wrong size.
Liking the shoes and I'm looking forward to winter being over so I can test them on the bike. The negative thing I have to say is I got the wrong size. I had been trying different pairs and different brands, and they all seem to run small. I was recommended to try these and I bought a size bigger. If you have tried other brands and found they run small in there sizes, and you like these, get the actual size. I wish I could have returned them before I wore them a couple of times for a Smaller pair.

Poor quality materials and contruction
I have owned this shoe for 6 months and I bought it from a local store. By far this is the worst shoes I have owned.
Initially the they were great for the price but within 60 days the inner lining started to tear at the heal section in both shoes. Then after about 3 months I noticed the rubber sole was actually separating from the left shoe and shortly after the right started following its brother. I am quite new to riding only been riding for a year an some change, so I bought these with a budget in mind. These shoes are of a poor quality and should be priced as such. For another 30 to 40 bucks you can definitely get something ten times better that will last.

Great looking and comfort to boot!!
Fit size, right on.
Broke these in walking around work the last week and after the second day on they proved to be very comfortable. As with all boots/ shoes I had to ditch the insole for some Dr. Scholl's as the original provided little support for my flat feet. I did not notice the squeaking being as intrusive as in other review but rather a dull whisper of rubber rubbing on rubber, and that was at home in dead quiet. I did spray both with waterproofing conditioner before wearing so this may have deadened the sound.
The flat sole provides easy movement on the pegs and provide just enough flex for easy brake and clutch actuation. Also deaden vibration I feel thru my harder sole boots. Very warm, I got these for fall/winter/spring riding and they'll work great for this.
Highly recommended and exception bang for the buck.

Boots are stylish and sweet!
I wear a size 10 in Adidas Original Superstar II shell toe sneakers as a reference. I ordered 11's to wear my Gerbing's heated socks or for wearing my extra thick comfy/wicking socks for long rides, they really fit perfect. My foots not wide or narrow, just average. If you wear a 10 w/ reg. sports socks, get a size 10, if you want to wear really thick or 2 pairs of socks, order an 11. I also added a Dr. Scholl's sole and it makes them even more comfy. They will squeak though (-: when walking so if your trying to sneak up and scare someone, like your wife and daughters, no bueno! A couple of riding buddy's loved my cool looking Hi top Van's, then I showed them what they really are and they were floored. btw, they're already comfy as is but with the Dr. Scholl's sole, you can look slick & walk in comfort all day, no joke! They're really like high top sneaks but you'll certainly feel rider foot protected.

Must-have foot protection for street riding.
This is an awesome alternative to a full-on race boot if you're only riding street. This has all the protection you'll need for the street without a large price tag. They're also very comfortable. Any time I ride to work I end up wearing these all day long, and I work retail so I'm always standing and walking around which really says something. My one complaint is that they're pretty squeaky. Sometimes it's not so bad, but other times it gets pretty loud. Squeaking around while walking isn't a bad trade-off for solid foot protection in my book though, so I certainly recommend these.

Lacking in some areas, but can't beat it for the price
Dynamite WP shoe. It was pouring the last couple of days and these gave me no problems. As a fashion aficionado & student, I like to maintain some style when I hop off the bike, and these definitely do the trick. They do have some short comings though. These things are BULKY. I have narrow feet so it's especially apparent in mine. I'd guess the footbed is in between a D & an E. They also have the feel of an actual boot in terms of sizing. Coming from the Dainese Technical Sneaker, it took some getting used to. As far as protection goes, it's ample for commuters. The toe box and heel cup are solid, but there's no real ankle hard parts or protection. With that being said, the shoe grips your foot in a way that makes your ankle feel secure. At first, they are pretty stiff and uncomfortable, but break in nicely. They do also squeak A LOT for some reason. I was never able to remedy it, but I'm over it.
Overall, if you want a good looking sneaker you can rock off the bike and are willing to sacrifice a TEENY bit of comfort... these are for you. After all, you can't beat it for $95... especially if you have some Zilla Cash leftover.
