Firstgear Kili Lo WP Boots
Nice for the price
I normally don't care for boots that are really high so I thought I would give these a try. So far the quality seems good and they are comfortable while on the back and relatively easy to walk in. They seem to run a little on the small side and they are some what narrow but I'm hoping that will get a little better as they break in.

Good bang for the buck
First the negatives. The malleolus pads. They are placed on the boot purely for style and not function. They are not placed in the correct spot to cover the ankle bones. CS checked them and confirmed this to me after pointing this out. The shifter pads are a shiny honeycomb surface that is not how it is pictured on the site. It does jump out at you. Not as subdued as I hoped. See pic
The positives. Overall this is a very good boot at this price point. Haven't had a chance to verify how waterproof they are but I'm assuming they are good based on other reviews. I wear a 9.5 E and I ordered a 10. They fit perfect and are very comfortable. I have foot issues from wearing poorly fitting (too narrow) shoes and they fit great. I replaced the thin inserts with a basic gel insert and they are really quite comfortable on the bike and off.

Top Knotch Boots
Very comfortable and 100% dry in the rain. I little on the bulky side but that just takes some getting used to we you are usually riding with smaller boots.

They are waterproof as I found out the ankle protecters help they seem to be very well made

ok for the price
Honestly, these boots were a bit disappointing. I researched a lot of boots and out of all of the low boots I looked at, I liked the styling of these the best. Protection-wise, I don't think they offer any better protection than my Vasque hiking boots, maybe even less. They come with very cheap, thin inserts which I replaced right off the bat. The shoe laces are too long like others mention and the fit is too wide in my opinion. They seem sloppily made. The cushion around the ankle is very poor. If I had the opportunity to try these in a store, I probably would choose something else. However, I'm keeping them and wearing them because they fit ok. They are my first pair of "real" motorcycle boots and now that I have them, I'm not convinced. I will probably go back to wearing hiking boots when these wear out.

Good protection! Low price!
These boots look fairly good, are quite comfortable and provide good protecction. I use them for all around in-town riding and also on touring. They are well ventilated, I live in all year round warm to hot weather, and never get uncomfortable or hot. They are very cheap, but the protection level is very good!. Seem well made, and have been using them for 3 months now, and look like new! and I ride everyday!
The size is normal, but I found them a bit narrow (maybe is my feet :) )

As this is a waterproof boot, the air flow is not there. They are very comfortable both on and off the bike. I like them so well that I bought the vented ones also.
