Joe Rocket Women's Heartbreaker Boots
I love these boots the heel gives me just enought height to touch on my CBR500r. I'm only 5 3' and I love these boots I wear them around all the time

Not for a sport bike
Comfortable boots to walk but they're not appropriate for a sport bike. I found it impossible to shift gears even after adjusting the lever.

Comfortable, great style
These boots felt great the moment I put them on for their first ride. The wedge allows me to almost get my foot all the way down (almost). Soles are sticky -- offering good traction. The protection is lacking, as are all women's motorcycle boots in comparison to the men's boots. There is a small spongey ankle protection, and no steel toes. Still, ultimately, I'm happy with the purchase. I'm normally a size 7.5 in American shoe, and I fit a size 8 in this boot well.

Love this boot!
As one of the many tiny riders at 5'2" (actually tall for a short girl!) Getting the height advantage was key to keeping me comfortable on my ride. I could touch my toes to the ground with the standard thick soled riding boot, but never was able to push with my heels to back the bike up. These boots solved that problem!
On my tall bike, 1982 Honda Nighthawk 650 with mid controls, the boot was ideal, That little groove on the bottom of the sole fit seamlessly with the foot peg. The toe tucked under the shifter smoothly and there was no reach to the brake pedal.
On my short bike, 2009 Yamaha V-Star 950 tourer with forward controls and floorboards, the ride was equally seamless. Either using the standard shift or rocker pedal, the boot worked perfectly. It's pretty nice to just kick up and rest on those heels to let my legs stretch out on long hauls.
After reading other reviews, I would like to add that I wear high heels to work almost every day, so working the bike in heels was not a huge change from just walking around. I suppose if you were not used to high heels these boots might not be as comfortable as you like. The ankles do flex a bit, but I could only get about an inch taller pushing up on to tip toes.in them. But that might be more because of my size 6 foot.
I get a ton of compliments on them and love them for both cold and warm weather.

I ride better
I was looking for a boot or shoe that had good grips. This boot has excellent gripping soles.Also the lift in the heel help me have better control of my bike at slow speeds and when moving. The heel is completely inside the boot so there is not a platform heal and they are safer for shifting. Extremely functional. I feel like I ride so much better in them. The extra control has given be so much more confidence.

Happy Wife Happy Life
Bought them as a general boot for my wife. She is very happy with the fit and style. She gets cold easily and has never complained about cold feet. We also ride in 105 degree weather and her feet don't seem to be any hotter than the rest of her so they certainly are good in all seasons. She is vertically challenged so every bit of heel helps. The are not going to offer much protection if you are headed off road.

Comfy city commute boots with rare feature (heels!)
I was looking for women motorcycle boots that would help with my inseam challenge. I was looking for heeled boots that won't look stupid on my FZ-07 but that would allow me to be more confident during daily commute with all those stops and traffic lights. Without them I am tip-toeing, does not help with confidence :) These boots worked right out of the box. Not tight, rather somewhat wide the footbed which actually feels comfortable for me (medium width) but may be not for narrow feet girl. They are sized right (I wear 8.5-9 and got 9 - have room for some thick socks if I would want to but absolutely fine in nylon ones). Soles grip to road surface like magnet - really nice not to be afraid to slip and "take a nap" with my bike on a stop sign. Attempt to decorate these boots in a lady style is not too noticeable and therefore not bothersome. Most of us ladies are not for flowers and such trinkets while on our bikes. So far I had ridden in them up to 92F in stop and go commute and it was ok, not too hot. Would be nice to have them in lighter colors though, for hot summers. Protection could use a bit of improvement - no reinforcement in ankle area although the rest is pretty well protected and reinforced. But on the other side it gives some flexibility to walk and while on my bike, shifting gears is a breeze. If you have a cruise-like bike they most probably won't work for you, you won't be able to bend your foot that much to stick it under shifter unless you do some modifications to it. Because of not perfect protection I would consider them good city commuting boots (stops... traffic lights...) but not for serious riding of course. Overall - yes, I would recommend.
