Firstgear Kathmandu WP Boots 4.1 5 24 24
Excellent performance and value for money These were my first proper motorcycling boots and I bought these in February and got them shipped to India. Over the last couple of months, I have ridden through the Thar desert in Rajasthan, through the hills that follow the Konkan coast in Western India and then recently rode through Ladakh in the Himalayas. The boots have seen hot dry weather, rains, ice, slush, dirt and all throughout its kept me bone dry and safe. In general the boots are very comfortable, true to size. I would assume that people with broad foot sizes would have issues with it. Fits me perfectly. It's highly breathable. In Rajasthan, riding through the desert with temperatures touching 38-42 degrees celsius wasn't an issue. At the same time, a pair of thermal socks underneath kept me fairly warm while riding through the high mountain passes (17000 feet and above) in Ladakh. I think for the price, these boots are incredible. I couldn't have asked for more. They are no SIDI Discovery/Adventure Rains but it's a Waterproof pair of boots that's called Kathmandu and it stands up to the task. July 23, 2014
Soft, Poorly Constructed Boot I ordered the boot knowing that it was a softer boot. The fit is a bit wide but the boot is very comfortable, but way too soft to give me confidence in its protection. My real concern is that after 1 short ride one boot began falling apart. Not just a hanging stitch but the liner was coming unsewn as was part of the leather cuff. Even a lower price boot should not fall apart after 1 short ride. This further weakened my confidence. Revzilla was outstanding from a customer service perspective and I ultimately stepped up to a Gaerne G-Adventure. May 9, 2014
Mixed impersions Recieved my boots yesterday. First impersions were positive . Packaging is good. Boots look good. Fit was perfect. Size is on the small side. I usually wear a 10.5 on shoes and 10 on boots. I normally buy brand name high end boots for everything. However, these are my first pair of dedicated motorcycle boots. I order these a size 11 and the fit was perfect. I recommend going up in size not down. I wear shoes and boot in standard width and these boots are perfect for my feet. These are very comfortable boots right out of the box. I believe they will require minimal break in. There's a bit of pressure on the exterior side of one of the boots but not a issue that a little bit of break in will not fix. However, they lack a bit in arch support. Nothing that a inexpensive insole cannot fix. I walk around the house for a few minutes, based on price, fit and comfort I believed these were keepers. Except for one thing. Now comes the mixed part. After close inspection on the closure hardware, buckles and straps, these are budget minded boots. The rest of the construction is fine for the price. However, when I compare the hardware with other budget minded dedicated sports boots, like ski boots, the hardware could be improved with stronger materials. The straps and buckles on these boots do not look like they can take too much abuse. However, only time and use can tell. I had to remind myself about the great value these boots are compared to other boots in this market. Unfortunately... This pair had a problem with the locking mechanisn of one of the buckles. The tab under the pivot point of the buckle that locks it down in place is missing. This causes the buckle to lift and open up easily releasing the strap. This seems to be a factory issue in one out of four buckles. I returned them and plan to replace them with another pair to see if this was an issue with this pair only. I will follow up this review once I get the replacement pair. April 24, 2014
Great Buy! These are my first pair of motorcycle boots and I must say that I am very happy with these. They are incredibly comfortable and I would not hesitate to ride cross country in these, in fact I p lan on doing just that. The fact that they use buckles and velcro instead of a zipper was very appealing to me and they work together well. The buckles took a little getting used to as far as adjustment. The tread provides great grip and I have no reservations about planting my foot at a stop because I know it is not going to slip. The reason I give them three out of five stars on airflow is because they don't seem to vent at all (which I suppose is to be expected since they are waterproof), so if you are looking for a summer specific boot and you live in Arizona these may not be the right choice, but if you live in the mountains and are frequently ride in colder weather then these are fantastic! They seem to be durable enough to last for years to come. The sizing was right on for my normal shoe size, I don't think you'll need to go up or down if your everyday shoes fit correctly. I definitely recommend these boots. April 15, 2014
Very Narrow I'm not sure why there are so many reviews calling this boot wide, as this is one of the narrowest boots I've tried on in a while. Admittedly, I have wide feet, but I bought up with that in mind. I wear an 11.5 wide, so I got a 12. Too narrow. Okay, makes sense, so I returned it for a 13 - just as narrow, but longer! Seems like a nice boot, but if your feet are at all wide, don't bother. April 10, 2014
Plastic Buckle Broke on Second Ride I know these are budget boots, but I would have expected them to last at least one season. While I was out riding (on pavement) with these boots, I felt something flopping around on my right foot. Upon looking down, I saw that the lower buckle and strap were flapping in the wind. I pulled over, thinking that I hadn't gotten the buckle latched properly, when I discovered that the plastic piece that is riveted to the tongue flap had snapped in half, allowing the strap to come off. It does not appear to be repairable because it is riveted, plus half the plastic piece is now missing. These boots hadn't even gotten dusty yet. As far as fit is concerned, they are marked EUR 45, US size 12. I have found that all of my other boots (work and hiking) are size EUR 46 or 47, US size 12. They fit slightly tight, but I was hoping that would improve as they broke in. A 12.5 would probably be perfect, but they don't appear to come in half sizes, The general construction seems good. Maybe the piece that broke on mine was merely a fluke, and was already cracked from the factory. HTH, Tom April 2, 2014
well worth the money I bought these for long distance rides but now I wear them almost all the time while riding .They are both warm and comfortable.The fit ,as in the video ,is a little wider which was exactly what I wanted .They fit really good out of the box and are very good for walking with no break in period .Very easy to put on and take off with the velcro and buckle snaps.They dont look as hardcore as some moto boots but are very reasonably priced February 10, 2014
Nice boot for the price... First impression... The boot fit is excellent, I wear 10 1/2 and ordered an 11. Overall construction, seems well made, I like the fasteners and Velcro closures, makes getting the boots on and off much easier. There is no arch support or cushioned insole in the boots, so if that is an issue for you as it is me do as I've done an add a gel insole. The boot being mostly leather has broken nicely and feels good on the foot. I would rate these boots as a medium grade boot as far as protection, they are NOT a motocross boot so if you're looking for primarily an off-road boot this is not it. What it is, is a waterproof dual sport boot, think of it as a 70/30 boot. 70% on road, 30% off road. Comfortable and with a good insole you can walk around in them. They are not a $500.00 SIDI boot and the price reflects that. They are a good all around boot that'll keep you feet dry. January 21, 2014

Christopher A: These are my first boots and they do the job. I'm cool with their performance for now, but as my riding matures, I know I'll be moving onto other, higher performing boots. Jun 24, 2014

John H: I have a lot of First Gear products and have been impressed with their quality. I was looking for a waterproof Dual/Sport boot and thought I'd give them a try. Jan 11, 2014
David T W: I have chosen these for their advertised width and comfort off the bike. I do touring and have wanted a higher styled boot to cover my shins. These sound like the best bet to purchase. Jan 5, 2014
Kristen T: Needed some wide fitting boots for riding my supermoto during the winter. Hoping they are a good balance between protection and flexibility since my bike is tall and I need to get a toe down at every light. Nov 12, 2013
John J: This is my first pair of motorcross boots. I recently went from riding a Harley 883 to a Ducati 696. My current motorcycle boots get "stuck" in the shifter (because of the heel.) I'm hoping since these don't have a heel and they're designed for motorcross, they'll be a bit better on the Duc. Oct 3, 2013
Richard B asked: Why would anyone invest in boots that do not have hard malleolus protection? My reason for shopping for for boots today is that I'm sitting here in a cast after breaking my ankle in a mild dual sport crash. I was wearing boots with no hard malleolus protection. Oct 1, 2013
