REV'IT! Mohawk Boots
They look good but don´t last long
Great looking boots, you hardly notice that you are wearing a motorcycle boot. The leather suffers a lot of distress just by normal city riding, the stiching on the upper part of the boot is slowly opening and leaving a hole in the leather union all this in less than 2 months and I don´t thing they will last long, bad thing for a 290 dollar boots.

Stylish, comfortable and seemingly ample protection
I purchased the Mohawks as my first set of motorcycle boots after riding around in non-moto boots for two years. I wanted to find a pair that would both look stylish without sacrificing protection and I believe (for myself at least) these boots fit the bill. The boots look great and the protective qualities are as advertised (although I won't know until the unexpected happens *knock on wood). I'm tempted to wear these out even when I'm not riding.

Red Wing style boot. Beautiful color and leather finish. They run exactly one size large.
My only gripe with them is that when I lace them up, my feet start to sweat a lot. It feels like I am wearing plastic bags instead of socks when I wear these boots. I have a pair of Stylmartin Indian boots and they fit much more comfortably and there are no perspiration issues. The only solution I found is to lace them up half way. This allows the feet to breathe a little. That being said, who says they will not fly off my feet in the event of a get off...

Great Looks / Great fit
I wanted a boot that didn't look like a motorcycle boot for commute riding and to wear in the office. This boot does the job. I normally wear a US mens 10.5 and ordered a 43 after reading other reviews. 43 fits perfect. A bit pricey otherwise I would have rated it 5 stars.

What Was I Thinking???
If this were an $80-$110 boot, I would say "FANTASTIC!" But it's not. It's a $300 boot. Why did I buy a $300 boot? Let's just say, "Don't drink and online shop." But seriously, it's a good boot but WAAAAAYYYY overpriced. Style-wise, it's a high ankle Sebago style dock shoe with a couple of weird additions. The top anklet that is yellow? Not sure what that is about. The fitting loop on the back that is supposed to help you hoist the boot onto your foot? Unless you have a 2cm diameter finger, it serves absolutely no purpose and will just frustrate you every single time you go to use it. I'd love to know what the designer was thinking about that one. Oh, and they don't breathe well. Ugh. Rev'It (dumb name) is typically great stuff but this product does not match the price.

Good boots, but quality control is lacking a bit - buy from a store where you can see them first
These boots look great and are comfortable. Rev'it seems to maybe not have the best quality control going - there's a defect in leather on one of the boots that has me worried about how long they'll hold up.
If you buy these - get them from a place where you can inspect them before laying out this much money.

Great style, comfort and protection
You'll be hard pressed to find a more comfortable, or better looking, boot that offers the protection you need on your bike. I commute to work every day with these and wear them until I get home. No one guesses that they're designed for riding, but I do get a ton of compliments.
If you're going to walk around a lot, they may get a bit stiff. Personally, I just loosen all the laces and tie a square knot at the top to protect them from dragging and it's perfectly comfortable.
Before I bought these, one of my favorite features was the shifter cover. It looks great and does offer protection, but it tended to get stuck while I tried to position my foot. It also fell off about a week or so after I got them. I was bummed at the time, but they seem to be holding up just fine.
The color matches what's in the video much more than the picture. It has a bit of a reddish hue to it, especially in direct sunlight.

Love these boots
I don’t know why it’s taken companies so long to make safe and functional gear that looks understatedly stylish, but Revit has been hitting it out of the park lately.
These boots are similar to Red Wing work boots but are much more protective. Though it isn’t going to be up to a race boot level of protection, these are a lot stiffer and more substantial than a regular boot. The leather has a high-quality look and feel and after several months of use, is developing a nice worn-in patina. These are comfortable enough to wear all day and though I wouldn’t want to walk miles in them they’re great in that I can ride to a meeting and not look like I’m wearing motorcycle boots.
The protective toe cover is a nice thought, I just found it getting in the way of the shifter and the bottom was catching on my footpeg. I removed mine, cut the stretchy part off, sewed it back together in tight loop and wrapped it around the shifter peg.
Air flow is pretty much nonexistent and my feet do get warm in slow traffic on a hot day. The plus side is I’m hoping I’ll be able to wear them when it gets colder and not have a breeze shoot through them like some lace-up boots do.
All in all, these are really great boots. I highly recommend them.
