Utter joke
When I opened the box to see the word "premium" on the shoe box I laughed. This product is in no way, shape, or form premium, it is a bargain product. After removing the shoes form the box, my second impression was that these shoes look very cheaply made with very cheap materials (think that big box store where everything is made in China, except these boots are made in Pakistan).

Putting them on, my impression of them went down even further. As others have pointed out here in the comments, the lace loops look and feel very cheap, and in fact have ripped for some people. Like others I found the Velcro strap to be purely fashion and it serves no purpose at all. It has just an inch of velcro and is not adjustable. My size 10 feet and ankles have to much wiggle room with the strap as tight as I could get it.

The punchline to this joke pair of boots is the ankle "protection." I can not believe that no one has commented on this before myself. The stitched in hard plastic ankle protection sits below my ankles. Apparently FirstGear has no knowledge of human anatomy. Every other pair of boots I have tried on or owned placed the ankle protection over the ankles. The fact that these boots have the protection below the actual ankle leads me to believe in a bad crash scenario these boot may do more harm than good.

That being said, the toe box feels like it offers a good amount of protection and the tread is fairly thick and stiff.

If you want a pair of poor fitting, poorly designed boots for less than $100, by all means purchase these. But, if you want a pair of boots that will offer actual protection and longevity of use, spend another $50 bucks more and get something better.

Good boot
I am exchanging it due to people saying it ran a size smaller. It does not. Sorry bigfoot, it's true to size. I got an 11 and it was I fit a 10 -10 1/2 and it was way huge. I don't have wide duck feet I am pretty normal. Anyway, the shoes are blend of Boot/Riding shoe with the protected toe guard. The style is not, not really flashy so upon a glance, it will pass off pretty much as sneaker. The picture here looks more sneaker like. Style wise it's hybrid look. Feels well made, solid and it's got the protection in the right zones. I needed a commuting shoe I can wear all day. This just may be the right thing. I'm not feeling like big boots for the office so these will do the trick.
I will revise the review when I get my exchange pair to include some riding time in for the complete opinion.

Not long lasting.
One year later and they started to fall apart.
I do not ride over winter and i probably have 1500 miles in these shoes and they are falling apart. Very soon I will lose one of the top lace loops and then it will be unsafe to wear.
See pictures for details.
Another very annoying thing is that Velcro hook-and-loop ankle strap does not align nor secures your ankle at all. Have no functionality except to hide shoe laces and enhance looks.
Cannot speak of protection level and hope i will never have to regarding any of my riding gear.
This is below the average shoe, but for the money in just passes average - barely.

Great product
Lightweight and great airflow, extremely comfortable on and off the bike, although providing good toe and ankle protection.
Great "under the radar" design for everyday use: Wear it with a pair of jeans and people can hardly notice you are wearing a riding boot.
If you want something discreet, comfortable as a pair of sneakers and still have some fairly good protection for your ride, this is your product!

great protection
These are low-end boots, without a lot of bells and whistles, but they are an excellent values and quite comfortable. I am always tempted with wear basketball shoes in the summer, but I had these on for a low speed crash last week, and I road away with just bruises. I am certain that I would have broken an ankle or worse without these boots, so I recommend them highly.

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,

Issues with fit
After researching every short boot/riding shoe looking for something offering a great balance of protection and airflow for hot Southern California riding, I chose these and really REALLY hoped I'd hit the jackpot. Everything looked and felt great taking them out of the box and poking and prodding and bending - I was really happy with the protection these offer.

Trouble is, I wear a 13 in every pair of shoes I own, ordered a 13 in these (biggest size available) and I could barely get the left one on (& it felt very tight once on) and literally couldn't wedge my right foot into the other one. Two changes may have made the difference: 1, a pull loop on the back of the heel to help grip it and pull it on, and 2, the tongue is not an athletic shoe-style tongue (typically only connected at the bottom & open on the sides) but it is fully gaitered/gusseted on both sides, stitched almost to the top, which really limits how wide you can open the tongue/flap to get a large foot inside.

Firstgear seems to have a different sizing breakdown than TCX (at the same time I bought the TCX X-Action for more aggressive & adventure riding). The TCX boot states 48 Euro & 13 US (and it was just a bit roomy actually), while the Firstgear states 46 Euro & 13 US (and was very tight). The difference in fit seems to indicate that I'm a 47 Euro, but Firstgear and TCX disagree on what US size that translates to.

If this boot was available in a 13.5 I'd happily exchange mine for a new pair, as I still think these hit the sweet spot on protection/features, if you can get the right size! Looks like it's back to the drawing board to pick a runner-up that will hopefully fit.

good summer boot for the money
These should be great for summer riding - lots of mesh for air flow, and feel comfortable enough and look good enough to wear after you park the bike - the reason I opted for the low version. Toe box and ankle area feel hard enough for protection.

Be warned - these boots run very small - I wear an 8.5 shoe, and was debating to go 9 or 10 on these. I finally opted to go with the 10's because the 10's corresponded to my European size (43). The 10's fit perfectly. Also, there is the suggestion here that these are a wider boot than some. Not so, IMHO - they seem at least as narrow as my Sidi's.

These look like a good short boot. My dad and I are the same shoe size, he gave me his old sidi boots but they're too tight on the calf. Hopefully the shorter ones will be better than the walking boots I've been using.

Something comfy I could wear off the bike and not look too ridiculous and not be too uncomfortable. Really please

They survived a lowside due to some gravel on Ortega highway. Through the whole ordeal they seem to have only gotten dirty. I was not hurt while wearing these.

Would recomend these if you're looking for light to medium protection and decent comfort/style.

Jim H on Sep 26, 2014
I was concerned about some upcoming touring through some Southern states during the full heat of summer. I've had issues with overheating feet before, causing lots of discomfort and blistering. But I didn't want to compromise of protective features. These really delivered â?? all the protective features plus comfort and they really do have excellent ventilation. Broke in after one day. Paired with really good socks (essential), these were comfortable as I could have wished for.

I am a size 11.5 us. since there are no half sizes would you suggest 11 or 12?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I would suggest 11, I'm typically 10.5-11.5 (usually 11 is spot on) and ordered a 10. The 10 fits perfect!
Are these boots vegan /no leather size or any animal products?

I usually wear Europeam boots and am a size 43, in both BMW and Italian boots.
What size would be the best fit for me in these boots?
I also havea broad foot.
Thanks
Wayne
A shopper on Feb 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a pair of these boots and they are labeled size 44 European, 11 US and 10 UK. I normally wear a 10-1/2 US boot size, but these fit me great. Since the size chart now shows only US sizes I would recommend going with the 44 for you. If you go to the US size 10 it may be more like a 42 European and may be too small.

I love these boots! Wore them all over Italy on a Edelweiss tour. They are very comfortable and cool.
