Very Comfortable If I had any complaint it would be that they are a little narrow in the toe box. Other then that ready to wear right out of the box felt great. March 23, 2015
the boots are not as comfortable as others I have tried These boots have awesome curb appeal. The look is outstanding. The comfort of the boots was not to my liking. March 16, 2015
Falling apart too quickly Assembly of the boot buckles using black oxide steel screws that are already rusting after 2 months. This is supposed to be a waterproof boot. Already had 2 screws (hard to find replacements) fall out of the buckles. March 8, 2015
Great for the price I bought these due to a tight budget at the time. I'm very happy with them. Perhaps I've been lucky, after reading some of the reviews, but mine are still in great shape. I did tighten all the hardware after my first ride with them. Things were way loose and at risk of falling off. I've been caught in some rain and my feet stayed dry. May not provide the protection of some more expensive boots, but way more than tennis shoes. December 26, 2014
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

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
MICHAEL L: I wanted a good all around boot that was waterproof. I ride a V-Strom 650 and thought these would be a good fit. Mar 3, 2015
Richard K: Price, looks, fit and function. Oct 18, 2014
Curtis H: I destroyed the first pair that I purchased in a 50 mph high side crash. My foot was caught under the bike sliding down the road. The boot stayed on my foot while wearing through the leather in two places, to the plastic toe cap. I had no foot injuries, the Kathmandu boot did what it was designed for, protective gear. Aug 18, 2014
Matthew H: Good fit and great price. Less bulk than armor sport boots but more comfortable. Jul 31, 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
V O: Sweet Apr 13, 2014
L E: Price and reviewers' comments. Feb 23, 2014
Larry P: The ability to be able to watch the video convinced me on the product. In addition the 10% and free shipping as well as the future discount are fantastic, I will be back in the near future. Thanks Larry Feb 19, 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
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

Bruno 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
