Fly Milepost II Waterproof Boots
Good value for money
I wanted a pair of riding boots that would be easy on and off while providing comfort and protection. These are a pretty good balance. Probably not a protective as some stiffer and heavier boots, but very comfortable while riding and not bad walking. Not what I would pick for a ruck march, and while I think that being visible is great, I could really do without all of the shiny bits. Been riding in 95 degree temps lately, haven't noticed them being hot at all.

you will get as much as you've paid
I've bought those boots to ride at spring and autumn in the city. These are my first motorcycle boots so I have no experience and no possibility to compare it with some other model.
They are good from +5C up to +19C then it became a little bit hot. There is no special airflow holes so I can only move my foot on peg to make boot-top open some hole in front or bottom of my shim.
It does not fix on the shim very tight and allow boot-top to move around 4cm. It has no special rain protection, however can hold light rain up to 30 minutes then they are starting to leak (I've used some "nano-protective" spray before).
I've used it for 5000km (city riding and Europe trip) and should say that they functions well. Zipper works fine.
When I've started to use those boots I've noticed that they scratch a skin on my shim. It happens because top part is not finished properly. I've walked from home to parking place about 500 meters morning and evening back and on second day it really hurts. So I've used a needle, thread and part of soft textile to cover this hard-ended bottom part.
I believe that it is better to pay a little bit more but to get boots from some well-known manufacturer.

I like the style, fit & finish
I like these boots over *****master, there more flexible for making shifts.
comfort is good, sizing is good, I have a wide foot & they fit well.
If need be wear a heavier sock..
I have not riden in the rain w/ these boots so I don't know if they leak, I have the Milepost Air model, not the waterproof.

I purchased these boots a couple months ago to use for commuting, and have been very pleased with their performance. once broken in, they are very comfortable both riding, and walking around in. they have also proved to be comfortable in a variety of temperatures, from as low as 40 degrees to a high of 80 so far. as summer approaches, how they work in higher temps will be tested. The thing i am most happy with is how water proof they seem to be. it has rained all week here, with everything from a light drizzle, to substantial down pour, and they have stayed completely dry inside the entire time. this is a huge improvement over the boots they replaced, and one i am very happy with.
these boots seem like a good commuting/street touring boot for a good price, and i foresee many pleasant riding seasons out of them.

I have had these boots for almost 5 months and have worn them for my daily commute to work. I have ridden in sub zero temperatures, pouring rain, light snow, and the subsequent salty and wet roads. I would only recommend these boots for cooler temps and inclement weather riding. On hot days they will be stifling.
Comfortable when broken in, even to walk in for short periods.
Easy to clean salt, sand and road grime off after a cold wet ride.
Stylish and not very 'look-at-me' when you end up wearing them off the bike.
Feel secure and good padding.
Soles are not wearing out at all.
I worry about the longevity of the zipper. So far so good though.
They are very broad at the shin and not flexible there so getting pants on over them is a pain.
Overall, the good outweighs the bad for my application. I'd buy them again.

I haven't worn them in rain yet, but the fit and feel is excellent - I normally wear a 9-12 and ordered a 10. They are very easy and comfortable to walk in, and very easy to get on and off. I haven't done any extended riding in hot weather and can't comment on air flow - they are not to hot for nice weather riding.

Great product for the price
Bought them over a month ago, used them in heavy rain a couple of times already and my feet stayed dry the whole time, went through a few medium depth puddles (wearing watherproof pants), no problem. They look great, fit a bit wide, still pretty comfy. They fit perfect with thick walking socks. Definitely not a walking shoe though. The price is excellent for this quality. I do recommend them.

Great Boot, but not for summer...
This is an EXCELLENT boot for cold weather and wet riding. I have had the boots for a few months now and given them ample opportunity to leak, they do not.
Pros: great fit, comfortable when broken in, looks ok, walks well, completely waterproof.
Cons: Hot, may deteriorate sooner than I would mind (best guess this boot will last three seasons of heavy usage).
