Fly Milepost II Waterproof Boots
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).

Comfortable, true to size, very good protection.
These boots came true to size, and are very comfortable. They offer very good protection and the reflective highlights are a great additional safety feature. No problem to ride then walk around destination comfortably. Great bang for the buck!

Excellent Value, recomend
Tested in wet conditions and is definitely waterproof. Except when I did a water crossing that was over the boot---LOL. Using my pair riding VStrom Adventure Cycle and they very comfortable. I'm sure more expensive boots are even better if you want to spend the money, My personal riding level I can't justify it. Small light boot feel with no problem finding gear shift or rear brake!

Boots seem to be as good as my previous
I think this is the update to the last pair of Fly boots that I put 55k miles on over 5 years. For me, they worked fine 12 months of the year in Virginia heat, cold, and wet. I was out in 14 degree weather and my feet were not cold. 100 was a bit sweaty, but fine. They were waterproof until the sole started talking at about 4 years :) I liked having a zipper and velcro the entire length. The zipper worked until the last year and then the velcro alone held it suitably after that. I got these boots because they looked like the updated version of my old boot and I've not had them out in the wet yet, but I think they will perform as well as the old ones did.
