Firstgear Mesh Hi Boots 4.2 5 22 22
comfortable and inexpensive This is my first pair of riding boots, so I have no way to compare them to other boots. I was riding in my Ariat lace up work boots, which work but have little protection. These boots are so comfortable I find myself leaving them on around the house. Air flow is moderate. Grip on the sole seems perfect to me. Protection is moderate. The toe and heel and the outside of the ankle have hard protection; the inside of the ankle has several layers of leather. The fit seem American and right on. My right foot is bigger than my left foot, so I sometimes have trouble getting a good fit. I bought these at my true size, 12. I would say they are about average width. For the price these are excellent. October 26, 2015
Great Warm Weather Boot Purchased these for riding from LA to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree. Figured the mesh might help me stay cool. I was right. It was especially noticeable when I took my feet off the pegs on the freeway. I could feel the air flowing right through the boots. When I first tried them on, I thought they might be just a bit tight, but they loosened up very quickly and are quite comfortable. I've worn them all day at work a few times (desk job, so not a ton of walking) and been just fine. I'm not completely sold on the protection level, but they sure beat a pair of tennis shoes. Again, I bought these with more of an eye toward comfort. Overall, very satisfied and would recommend these to anyone who's riding in hot weather. October 22, 2015
Good, Cheap Boot I bought this boot as a part of my initial gear purchase as a new rider. Being in central FL, I was after a boot that was cool (temperature, mind you), offered protection, didn't cost a ton, and didn't look like a space boot, ski boot, but just a normal boot that I could wear to work once I got there. It certainly met the first three criteria. So far, it's been fine it both ~90 degree days as well as 60 degree mornings. The zipper and Velcro make it quick on, quick off, which is nice. The boots seem sturdy enough to offer decent protection should it become necessary. Style is very much subjective, but it's still a little more space-man than I'd prefer. If I could've found a cheap, basic, black boot with fewer design flourishes, I think I would've done so, but for the price, and given how often I look at my boots, they worked for me. They're comfortable enough to wear off the bike too. I spent last weekend walking around a convention and my feet never really bothered me. So, that's my way of saying that they're comfortable. Sizing is a little weird, but that's just shoes in general to me, I wear a 10 in a Nike, 10.5 in a new balance, and a 9 with these. Took a return but the 9 fits my foot well. October 22, 2015
Good Summer Touring Boot After a friend of mine was in a significant motorcycle accident, breaking his foot and shredding his combat boots, I decided I needed more motorcycle appropriate riding boots to replace the combat boots I normally wore when riding. I have the first gear Rainier Jacket and Escape pants and love them, so First Gear was a top contender when looking for motorcycle boots. These boots are very comfortable, they feel like a pair of socks when riding and are very flexible for walking around at stops. There’s a little room to adjustment by pulling the Velcro flaps a little tighter, which works for me, so I assume that’s flexible enough for the average rider. I bought the mesh boots for the summer months, hoping that these boots would stay cool during the 90 degree summer days in the Ohio. After riding I realized that the perforations aren’t very effective on bikes with forward controls. That aside, I was still very comfortable on the hottest days this summer, so I assume anyone with mid controls of rear sets will be very happy with ventilation. After a few weeks, the First Gear decals started to peel off. While this is by no means a deal breaker, it does make me a little concerned about longevity. Because they’re a motorcycle specific boot, I assume they are stronger and more durable than my unsuited combat boot, but I admit these “Touring” boots do seem pretty simple, so I admit I am a bit concerned about durability in an “off” (I hope I never find out), but for the price, I cannot complain. Overall the boots are extremely comfortable and affordable, I would recommend them to anyone looking for commuter footwear for summer months. October 5, 2015
Great boots. Great, cheaper boots! They don't do much for me in terms of air (FL) but they look nice, feel nice, and don't seem to bother me if I work in them throughout the day. August 11, 2015
Great Phoenix Arizona Summer Boot I commute for an hour each way on the highway in the Phoenix heat. The Firstgear Mesh Hi Boots are a great boot for Phoenix Arizona in the summer. The temperatures going to work vary from the 80s to the 90s while the temperature coming home ranges from the high 100s to the low 110s. With my previous boots, my socks were quite sweaty above the foot by the time I arrived at work in the morning. With these boots, my feet get plenty of ventilation, even though I wear leather chaps that cover the entire top of the boots. Tonight I left them on for four hours after I got home. My feet were comfortable the whole time. That was *not* case with my other boots. The zipper is solid, and the Velcro that closes over the zipper is generous. There is a reflective oval on the back of each boot. July 30, 2015
Cooler than regular boots in 100 plus weather. I like EE width but with thin socks these are fine. Offer same protection as non-perf boots. Cooler than regular boots. Better side zip than some more expensive brands. July 13, 2015
Great Commuting/Touring boot This boot is fantastic. It's warm enough to be comfortable for your morning sub-45 degree commute and cool enough for your 85 degree sunny-day joyride. The flexibility is fine after a short break-in period and you can walk around in these boots if you need to. What I really like about this boot is that you can feel the shift lever through the toe box. A lot of riding boots are so stiff at the toe that you can't feel the levers, which leads to missed shifts. Not so with these boots. They have a very large and sturdy hook-and-loop closure to reinforce the zippered entry and I am confident that these boots will stay on in a get-off situation. I wear a size 10 street shoe and the size 10 boot fit perfectly. April 4, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Travis N: Riding in the Palm Spring/Joshua Tree area. Hopeful that these will help manage the heat, while still providing adequate protection. Oct 2, 2015
Derek M: These are excellent boots. great for summer. Jul 14, 2015
Cord H: For hot weather riding. Looked like it would go well with the Tourmaster Venture Air Pants and Intake Air 3 Jacket which are Awesome for hot weather riding and bang for the buck. Hopefully the boots will be too. Jul 5, 2015
Andrew F: After looking at all of the ADV, Touring, and commuter boots I felt that these were the best bang for the buck. I have a lot of other First Gear items, so they've gained my trust thus far. Jun 13, 2015
paul m: work great in the southern heat, broader toe area is a plus fits true to size Apr 23, 2015
Chris S: Good looking mess boot with great protection. Apr 14, 2015
michael a: Because my regular boots were way too hot in the summer...I'm a big FirstGear fan anf most of my gear is made by them... Mar 25, 2015
Mark J: Need cooler summer boots. Sep 14, 2014
Casey L: Summer in Florida is a killer on feet while riding. Riding a BMW with the cylinder heads right in front of your feet is even worse. These are about as cooling a boot as I could find while still offering some protection. I have a few hundred miles on them now and they required almost no break in and are comfortable. I have wide "Flintstone" feet and these are wide enough to do the job. May 23, 2014
Luis V: I had these boots for a while and they are the best, wide to be comfortable enough for walking around. Air Flow is good around the ankles. Apr 5, 2014
Jorge Alberto R: Good priced, vented boots with shin and ankle protection and with a reinforced heel and toe. Mar 22, 2014
Richard J: Based on the pictures, I'm hoping the toe box is not so far above my toes as many of the other "motorcycle boots." This makes it difficult to get a good "feel" on the shift lever -- I'm all for protection, but if I can't get a good feel on the bike's controls, forget about it.

Now I'm using cowboy roper style boots, and for hot weather, Vietnam era combat jungle boots (they are very cool in the desert, but of course are only a little better than street shoes in terms of protection).

Patrick J: Great boots comfortable and they breath well Dec 2, 2013
Brian W asked: I wear a size 11 1/2 shoe, should I size up or size down? Apr 7, 2015

martin h: Brian; they are true to size, however if you have a high instep take that into consideration. They become easier to put on as they loosen and walking around in them is easy, you aren't pounding the pavement. Apr 7, 2015

Peter Z: I wear 8 1/2 normally and sized up to 9 - fit perfectly; so I'd recommend sizing up. It will also get helpful if ride in cooler weather and want a thicker sock. Apr 7, 2015

John M: Personally, for me, I would size UP. But for me, my foot is just a little wider than most, plus I like to add a gel insole, so sizing up made the most sense. Apr 7, 2015
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Thomas H: I'd go up a size. I wear a size 12 normally, but had to go with a size 13 for these boots. A 12.5 would probably been ok, but they don't do half-sizes. Apr 7, 2015
Reply to Thomas Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Randy J: I usually wear 11 1/2 because I need the width. These are a little wider than normal, so I sized down to 11 and they fit perfectly. Apr 7, 2015
Reply to Randy Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Wayne K: I would suggest going up a size. I usually wear a 10 1/2 and ordered a size 11 and that is ok, but would not want any smaller. Apr 7, 2015

Brian W: Thanks for the replies! I ended up getting the FG Mesh Lo Boots and ordered them a 1/2 larger...perfect! Apr 14, 2015

Catherine N: they are true to size - I would recommend a 1/2 size up just for extra comfort. Apr 14, 2015

Joshua P asked: Hi- Am I clear that these have ankle protection on both sides of the boot? The description states "hard ankle and shin protection" but doesn't clarify 1) what type of protection and 2) if ankle protection is on both sides.

Bert F: Hello Joshua,
Yes both sides have protection, there is mesh on the outside to let in some air, protection on the inside.
Hope this helps, Bert

Ubaldo P: Ankle protection is only on the outside (lateral side). It is hard "plastic" disk within the leather. Shin protection, as best as i can tell, is comprised of extra layer(s) of thick leather.

Ride safe!
