Firstgear Kili Lo WP Boots
Good fit. Not too big in the toe box.
I am woman with a fairly large foot. I couldn't find a women's size 10 that fit like the same size in street shoes, so I tried several men's styles but most were too big in the toe box. I have only used these boots a few times but so far, I really like them. Comfortable. Not too stiff. Good traction. I haven't had them long enough to speak to their durability, but so far I would recommend them.

well I just used them for a quick commute, just to test them. I even had to use them 3 hours at the movies, and didnt feel them uncomfortable at all. The protections look tough. Again, a pair of riding shoes that would also fit well while not riding.
As for the fitting, i think its a bit small. I'm 10,5 and ordered 11. They fit just right, theres no extra space.
I havent tested them on rain yet, but so far no wind at all came through, so Im quite confident with that.

Great value for casual style shoe
These shoes appear to give much better protection than average hi-tops used when riding. As others have mentioned, the strap will get in the way when lacing up, but it is manageable.
The soles do not flex too much so don't expect to wear these all day when not riding. The stiffness is tolerable for maybe an hour of walking.

Excellent boot for the price
The only quibbles I have are that the laces get stuck on the velcro for the ankle strap when tying up and the interior padding could be a little thicker. Neither one is a big deal. Its a great boot.

Great Boot for a great price
I bought this boot and rode for 9 days straight from New York to Colorado; over 4,400 miles and and am in love with this boot. Kept me warm in the cold and cool on the hot days. The only time my feet were cold was 12,000ft up in the Colorado mountains where it was about 20 degrees Fahrenheit and 40mph winds. I usually rode with 2 or 3 layers of socks on at all times. Very little air flow through the laces. The boot is tough and dampens the vibrations from the foot pegs and seems very durable. Comfortable enough to go on short hikes with or to walk around town in and even kept me dry after riding over 400 miles straight in the rain!
I usually wear an 11 or 11.5 shoe and ordered the size 11 boot and it fit perfectly.

It's the first pair of motorcycle boots I've had. Used to just wear gym shoes which provided no protection or weather proofing or workbooks which felt heavy, stiff, and clunky.
I am pleased with the boots. They feel much better than work boots and they're waterproof.
Only thing I would change is the velcro lace cover keeps getting in the way when lacing up. But that may change/get looser as time goes on.

Good shoe, good price
I was looking for a good waterproof commuter shoe, and owning and being very happy with the Kili Lo non waterproof shoes, I purchased these. The size runs a bit small. I typically wear an 11 but had to order 12's. The build quality is good, there is ample protection for regular riding, the style is very innocuous, and when compared to the good air flow the other Kili Lo's allow, the WP version allows none. So they can be used both in the rain or in colder weather when you don't want the cold air getting to your feet.
