Firstgear Mesh Hi Boots
Nice boot, bad fit.
I liked the boots, they fit well over the toe box, close to the toes so they should work well with the shifter. But, (alas, there is a but) the round pad that goes over the ankle bone on my left foot pressed too hard into my ankle. Seemed like it could get uncomfortable on a long ride. Perhaps it would have broken in over time, but I didn't want to chance it so I am returning the boots. The right side boot was OK, so either my feet are slightly different in ankle size (a possibility) or the boots are (another possibility). We all have different shapes and sizes of feet so the protection pads may work fine for your feet (both of them), then again, maybe not.

my partner loves these boots
i bought these as a birthday present for my partner and he absolutely loves them, he says the fit is perfect, the control he has over the gears is great (not to high a toe section) and no slip! but the highest rave he has is about the airflow, we live in townsville and its proper hot here and he loves the airflow, when he takes his boots off his feet part of the sock is totally dry (while the rest is manly yucky sweat! haha)
so a big thumbs up from us :-)

Not a good look for me
Returned 'em. Not a good look for a cruiser rider. Still, they were very comfortable worn around the office, and definitely offer great protection for the ankles.

good product for the price, cooler feet in higher temps
Anthony's video lead me to try this boot , he stated the width was a little wide, d-e, fits my d-e foot well, seems good air flow in heated days. could be sized an inch larger around at the top to allow for larger calves, but I am able to fully zip the opening with a normal sock thickness, they work well for me.

Wrong Euro to US size conversion
I ordered a size 13, which is equivalent to a Euro size 48. The boot is marked US 13, but is a Euro 46 - one size too small. I would exchange for a size 48, but 46 seems to be the largest available size.

Nice boot for the buck
As always the product you see in the vids and the product postings are true to form. Received the boots very quickly after ordering and they feel great on my feet. The width as Anthony stated in the vid are wide. As for us guys with wide feet, finally a boot that accommodates. Construction is good and the boot is light weight. Have not worn them on a long ride yet but next week taking a week long road trip and will really see that this boot can do. Also purchase several pairs of base layer socks to give more cooling affects as I ride. BLUF: Good Boot for the buck...

I like these boots.
These boots fit comfortably and flow more air than I expected, you can feel the draft on your feet when riding. Very nice for summer riding. I would buy them again.

Good boots wrong Euro to US size conversion
I would recommend buy the next size up when buying these boots. I wear normally wear size 11us but in these 12us fit me perfect. The size tag in these boots is labeled 11uk, 12us, 45eur. Also I don't find these boots to be wider as stated in review. These boots seem well made with a heavy duty zipper.
they have a flat insole that is comfortable. I was expecting the venting to have more air flow but my touring bike has a large fairing that reduces are flow to boots but when on my hwy pegs air flow is much better. These boots flex well on floorboards use.
