Firstgear Mesh Lo Boots
Get off your bike and go
These are a great first pair of boots. I chose these particularly because I like riding my motorcycle to places; these boots, along with the other gear I purchased doesn't scream "I just got off a motorcycle." These do not look ridiculous to walk around a store or my college. Also, not only are they comfortable to ride with, they are comfortable to walk around all day with.
Most things were five out of five. I gave style four out of five because the "First Gear" branding is bold across the front. I gave four out of five for protection and durability because I can't verify that portion yet, as I have only had them for 3 months. I do believe they will hold up well though.
I absolutely would recommend these boots.

Good quality and value. Will be nice for hot weather riding.

Would not purchase again
Bought the shoes 1/2 size bigger than I usually wear.They were snug at first but it didn't take too long before they felt sloppy on my feet.Didn't notice a whole lot of air flow,and the tie flap tends to get in the way when tying them. To me, not worth the amount I paid.

Great shoe for the price
I ride Harleys out west every year. Depending on the weather, it is hot most of the time.. Leather boots are good but too uncomfortable most of the time. These boots are light weight and comfy. They support your feet where it is needed.

Really good boots
Excellent boots, with airflow you can feel. Broke in really fast (a day or so); comfortable for walking off the bike. However, the Velcro flap gets in the way when tying the laces up, kinda annoying.

Exactly what I was looking for living in FL
Ok, so it's not water proof... but I don;t care since IO rarely ride in rain anyway.
Was looking for a riding boot at a reasonable price to wear in the hot and humid FL weather and this boot does all that.
Good ankle protection and ventilation.
Grips good at stops too.
Can't say much about durability just yet because I have only had them for 3 weeks and maybe 250 miles
Would definitely recommend and buy again,

The boots came with one of the Velcro pads barely attached (the seaming was broken on 2 out of 3 sides). Some seams in other places also look pretty crude, and one seam is visibly sealed with some black goo - obviously, to cover up another defect, and judging by what they *didn't bother* to cover up, I don't think I want to know what was wrong with this one... All aesthetic unpleasantness aside, I just wouldn't trust *protective* gear that's built so half-heartedly.

I purchased these boots after two or three scary incidents in which my shoe laces were getting caught in the controls. I wore them for a short ride today and really like them. They are a bit stiff but I'm sure they'll break in nicely. They allow a good amount of airflow when riding and the reinforced material where the boot contacts the controls is a nice touch. The soles are a bit slippery - be sure to watch where you're putting your feet with these. Overall I really like this shoe. It looks "normal" enough to wear as a tennis-style shoe when you reach your destination without anyone noticing that they're for riding.
