Joe Rocket Speedmaster 3.0 Boots
Top quality boots
Very pleased with this purchase. The boots were instantly comfortable, requiring virtually no time to break in. I was particularly impressed with the mobility (flexion/extension) at the ankle. I was experiencing some tightness in my right hip while wearing my old boots (stiffer, waterproof) after 2-3 hours of riding. That went away as soon as I started using the Speedmaster boots. Also these boots improved my feel on shifting and with the rear brake.
The boots seem well ventilated although the warmest I've ridden in thus far is about 82 degrees (where I live in it rarely gets above 85). Happily I haven't crash-tested the boots but they seem to have adequate protection.
The fit was perfect. I wear 10-10.5 in shoes and ordered a 10 in the Speedmasters.
Good service and info from Revzilla as usual. All in all an excellent choice.

Another Win By Joe Rocket
Was looking at a lot of boots, and went with this one because Joe Rocket has treated me good so far. you get what you pay for and more (compared to boots in the same price range) I like the style, and the toe sliders. My feet are pretty big and hang of the pegs so the side of my toes often make contact with the ground when I'm taking sharp turns.
I have had the boots for 2 weeks and I love them, I will update if any thing happens, but I will keep buying Joe Rocket gear at this rate .

Overall great boot
Pretty good bang for your buck..make sure to do what the other reviews advise and get one size down. I usually wear a 9.5-10 and bought a 9 and it fits pretty good.... Looks pretty much exactly what the picture displays, but it is a little wider than I thought it would be. Pretty comfortable though and looks/feels like it would do it's job if it came down to it.

Just what i wanted
These are pretty good boots for the money. I don't have anything else to compare them do being they are my first pair of riding boots that I bought for track days. But overall they are comfortable and fit like they should.

Good bang for the buck
It's been raining a lot in California since I got these boots so I haven't put many miles on them yet but so far so good. I usually wear a size 9 1/2 or 10 and went with the reviews which said the boot runs large so I bought a 9. The fit is snug and secure. I could use a tiny bit more length overall, but with some thin socks it's no big deal.
I am just getting back into riding and needed to buy ALL of the gear so was looking to get as much boot for the money as I could without sacrificing protection. I considered A* and Sidi but these seemed just as good as those and they were on sale. I wanted something that would vent well in the summer and keep me warm down to 50 or so in the winter. Waterproof/Gore-Tex wasn't a priority for me....though I hope I don't live to regret that decision. on my foggy summer commutes in to SF.

fantastic boots for the money..
thanks to the customer service folks for providing me enough information that led me purchase this pair of boots. i have tried the Alpinestars SM5/6 at the local gear chain - it was always a little too narrow for comfort. I am lucky to have a Dainese store next door - however i had the same problem with TR course boots.
out of the box, the joe rockets fit fantastic. I am am US 10.5 and wear shoes between 10.5-11 (sometime wide). I picked up the JR 10 based on the customer technician feedback and it fit extremely well. The top is leather not artificial leather that sucks money - there are stretch panels and enough protection for the feet for aggressive street riding. There are enough reinforcements for the shin, ankle and sliders which are titanium and magnesium. - I will take that any time. Airflow is something I will comment after riding for a bot - the winter weather did not let me ride for a considerable period of time and my feet were very snug after 30 mins of riding.
Jeans and Leather pants fit well inside with enough feature to account for a smart fit. Very recommended though I am yet to try this out in a race track.

First "Real" Motorcycle Boots
I did a lot of online reading and got these boots not know whether I would like them or not. I expected something so rigid that I would not want to wear them except for the ride.
These boots are actually quite comfortable, and walking around in them is fine. Easy on and off with lots of adjustment. They run large. I normally wear an 11, I ordered a 10 and it fits fine. I don't yet know how waterproof they may be, but I like them fine so far.
Only negative which may be true of all protective boots is that I don't have the same feel of the shifter especially on up shifts.Hope I get used to it, but that is the price of protection I suppose.
