Very Good Boot!
These boots are very comfortable and offer good protection from the elements. I've owned many pairs of riding boots over the years, and so far, these are the best overall. I would highly recommend them for Adventure Riding. They are also easy to walk in while off the bike exploring.

These boots have a great fit and are made from quality materials. A great value for the price. They would be much better if they were actually waterproof. It wasn't two weeks after I received the boots and I had to ride to work in the rain. By the time I got there (about 40 minutes), one foot was wet. Granted, it was a fairly small amount of wetness on the top of my foot (it wasn't completely soaked), but I'm sure that if I had to ride all day in the rain, it would only get worse. Pretty disappointing for a boot that claims to be "Fully Waterproof".

Well constructed and comfortable. True to size. Looks good!

good boot for the money
Anthony's video review stated boot width was a little wide, d-e width, fits my little wide d-e width foot great, could use a little larger diameter at the top for larger calves but it fits me well with a normal thickness sock.

Works for me
Easy on, easy off. I was worried that they were going to be too hot, but they have been great. Look decent and pretty comfy too. Get one size up, I normally take an 11, those I couldn't even get on. The 12 was perfect. Very happy, a great value.

For size reference, I wear a 10 slightly wide and these are perfect for me in 44. The fit is very comfortable on the bike and for walking around, not quite good trail hiking shoe comfortable, but I spent 4 hours traipsing around State College in reasonable comfort. I cannot attest to the waterproof performance since I've yet to be caught in the rain with them.
They are warm but no more than than the waterproof work boots they replaced.
Negative? The textured layer on the shift patch is worn through and pretty ugly in 600 miles of riding. A smooth patch would be better. Could be my technique but the work boots took three years to wear through.

Good boot so far
My first pair of boots actually made for motorcycle riding. I ordered a 9, and freaked out a little when the boot came and was stamped US "8 to 9" and European "42". I'm a solid 9 wide and I have other European boots that are 43's. These fit great and are plenty wide and roomy. The sole is very stiff (not flexible) and the inside really does need a gel insert. The toe area appears to have good protection. I really like the style, they look great. I can still pull my jean legs over the boots no problem. With jeans over them, they look like fancy black leather sport shoes. They broke in quick just wearing them around the house. I thought just wearing them around the house that they were hot and don't seem to breathe very well. I thought the side panel in the photo (where the circle design is/outside of boot) would be like other boots I had and be a nylon mesh for flexibility and ventilation, but its not. Its just a panel of fake hard leather-like material. While they feel solid, I am a little concerned about the quality, especially since it appears the sole is glued to the body of the boot, not stitched. The zippers seem a little iffy. Ill update my review after a few commutes...
