Good choice for lightweight GTX boots
The boots are exactly as advertised: sturdier and more protective than soft riding shoes (sneakers), yet lightweight and unobtrusive compared to full sport riding boots. I was especially interested in the inclusion of Gore-Tex, and that works as you would expect. Of course, the leather--which is of a very good quality--does get wet when riding in a strong downpour, but the interior stays dry so long as you are careful to protect the top edge with your riding pants. I added a DWR coating (Granger's), so now the outside sheds water as well.
The shifter panel offers good tactile feedback, and the soles have a fine level of grip on the pegs.
As others have mentioned, these are actually very comfortable to wear off the bike. I wear mine around the office when casual shoes will suffice. In fact, I hate to take them off and put on boring regular shoes!

Great commuting Shoe
Use this protective shoe for commuting to work. Provides a decent amount of protection, but as expected not as much as a full height boot will. Gore-tex allows the shoe to breath, but keeps the foot dry as long as your riding pants are long enough to cover the top of the shoe. Decent product great for commuting and casual rides, and as always, Revzilla was fast in getting it here.

A riding shoe but also an all day sneaker
I would definitely recommend these riding shoes! The are very comfortable to wear all day on or off the bike. I wore them a solid 11 hours when we rode to Barber for the vintage festival. I walked around in them all day. Just like wearing a high top sneaker. You do need to wear a good thick sock because the fit is a tad bit wide but manageable. I would buy these again in a heartbeat. Don't shy away from these because of the price. You are getting what you pay for. Ride safe!

Good riding shoe
I tried 4 different riding shoes before settling with the Sidi Mythos Gore Tex. The others would pinch my instep when walking or were too wide or too uncomfortable to walk in after riding. These are not the best at everything but they are pretty good at most everything. I wish they would offer these with some ventilation as they do get pretty warm on a hot day when you stop riding and are walking around in them, nothing you can't live with. The shoes are flexible enough to walk in comfortably and they are the correct width for my foot. They look good under a pair of jeans although I would like a stripe or something to break up all the black on the top of the shoe, but that s just me. I have noticed my feet are a little tired after spending a few hours in them but that is probably because they are not broken in yet. They offer good shifter feel with plenty of protection for the foot and ankle. Overall, I would recommend these and would probably buy them again if something happened to this pair. Sizing is spot on for me. I wear a size 10 or 10 1/2 and a 44 fit me perfectly. I use these when riding a 2006 Buell XB12ss Lightning long.

These shoes are pretty amazing. I love the look and layout of these shoes. They're also gore-tex so they resist become muggy inside while keeping the water out.
This may just be me because I know that I have good feet, but I am able to walk all over my school campus with these on (I put forcefield soles in them), and my feet don't hurt at all. They obviously aren't like walking on a cloud, but it's defiantly doable.
They're not built for comfort, but they definitely aren't bad.
Style, waterproof (breathable gore-tex), and sturdy protection is where these boots exceed. They get by with a passing C+ grade on comfort. Add an extra sole to the boot and you can bump comfort up to a respectable B.

good, capable shoes
I bought these to replace icon Baja boots because the boots didn't function well on my new bike. (I traded bonnie in to mv agusta#
These are expensive but I think it's worth spending more than $200. They fit like regular sneakers and very comfy walking around. Not too heavy and not too stiff.
I had to ride in a storm last week and I was drenched but my feet/socks were completely dry when I got home. I was totally amazed about that. #gore-tex us awesome#
I live in Vegas and ride in triple digits weather. These don't have much air flow so, my feet tend to get a bit hot.
Pros : Water proof, comfort, construction.
Cons : Poor air flow, slick soles. #not much traction, especially when the ground is wet)

Good shoe just a bit too hot for Hawaii.
This shoe gives you the peace of mind that your feet/ ankles are well protected. A bit large in size in length and width. Only gripe is that it is too hot for Hawaii weather. No airflow at all. Dogs are really hot after a ride.
