Joe Rocket Speedmaster 3.0 Boots
Good comfortable protection with the stiffness of a race boot
These are a great road boot. Full heel, shin, and calf protection while they are not lacking in comfort. Easy on and off. I could wear these all day if I had to.

Before you buy these make sure you read other reviews of fitment. I wear a size 9 in military boots that are standard width. These tend to be a little wider so I should have ordered a size 8.5. So is it worth the price? Depends on the application of use. If you're a daily commuter that needs more protection than your high tops then invest in these. The price point is great considering other brands charge astronomical prices. Questions? Let me know.

Product is great. Worth the price
Boots fit and finish are excellent. I wear 8.5-9 running shoes so I order the size 8 boot an it fits perfect .

Surprisingly comfortable boots
I am 5'10 165 lbs, usually a 43 or 9.5 and the nine fits very well. These boots are very comfortable right out of the box. Well made and lots of bang for the buck. Like all of the mg sliders and extra protection. My only worry is that the zipper may not last long (zips kind of stiffly) and the sole is sort of thin. They will probably be just fine, but will see how they wear. They were great on a 360 mile trip! I brought sneakers along in case on rest stops I was uncomfortable, but never needed them. If you get these make sure you have long socks as wearing them without something like soccer socks underneath to protect your calves will be uncomfortable. Overall, though, an awesome boot and very pleased with my purchase.

Nice and wide!
I got these boots because I wanted better protection. I first tried the Alpinestars S-MX 5 Vented Boot, but they seemed cheap (pleather) and lacked good ankle protection. I then tried the SIDI ST Air Boots. While the Sidi's had great protection, they were painfully too narrow. The Joe Rocket boots fit great, and appear to have great protection...and you can't beat the price! My only complaint is that the toe box lacks some feel when it comes to shifting, and they are still a little stiff so on one of my bikes my toe does not easily slide out from under the shift lever after up-shifting. I home this eases as the boots break in. The great thing is that they are super comfortable (they are not sneakers, but for a boot) and they offer substantial protection. I definitely recommend them, especially to those with wide feet.

Alot of features for such a low price
I bought these based on reviews and price. I normally wear a 9.5 to 10, but had to send them back for a 9.0 as they run larger. I wanted a snug ankle area fit and ended up adding a orthotic insole (arch support) to get this. Overall appearance is awesome, only time will tell if the quality is there, as I have not had the time to use them.

Style Points and Protection
I did a lot of research on boots and I checked out a few sites before deciding on these. They are comfortable, stylish, great protection and I get a lot of compliments on them. They run true to size and get great air, I am very happy with these.

Lots of protection and style at a great price!!
Initially, I bought these boots in a size 9 since that's what I wear in tennis shoes but these turned out to be too big. I returned them for a size 8 and they fit perfectly the second time around. I would say they do run a little on the large size than. I wear these boots everyday to commute to my college classes and work on my 2005 R6. Now that I'm used to wearing them, I definitely love how they feel on the bike. At first, I had a little trouble feeling the shifter but this went away after riding for a couple days. The boots themselves took about 2 weeks of everyday wear to really break in and until than they may be a little uncomfortable for extended wear. Now that they are broke in, I can wear them all day with no trouble at all. They really are a great hybrid boot that balances comfort with some awesome safety features for the price. I wear these with my jeans over the top and nobody can tell that I'm wearing a full on race boot. This is important to me because I don't want to draw attention to myself but I'm still able to have all the safety features that this boot offers. At the same time for those that are more fashion minded, I've had several comments from both guys and girls in my college classes on how cool these boots look. I think this is mostly due to the magnesium sliders on the toe and ankle. I also went ahead and purchased a pair of Dr. Scholls Work Wear insoles for these and that really helped make these boots comfortable for all day wear. As far as temperature in these boots, my feet have not got to hot or cold yet and I've ridden in weather above 95 degrees and as low as 45 degrees already. They have just enough air flow to keep your feet from getting swampy but not too much that they will freeze at lower temperatures. The one gripe I have with this boot is that they used a pretty hard piece of rubber at the top calf area. This means that you pretty much have no choice but to ride with longs socks as this piece of material will rub you raw quickly. I've included two pics, one with the jeans over the top and a picture detailing the rubber piece that I don't like. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this purchase from Revzilla and Joe Rocket and would encourage anybody else thinking about buying these to not hesitate.
