Speed and Strength Black 9 Moto Shoes
Unknown shoe, turned out to be the best.
Was not familiar with speed and strength,black 9 moto shoes. Took a chance after reading about shoe, and purchased a pair. After wearing for a few months I am totally sold on this shoe. Great for motorcycle riding,feels firm and good support, seem to be wearing well after abusing them daily. Also used for hiking in Arizona, tough as a cactus, I would buy another pair if I ever wear these out.

Classic skate style w/moto sensibility
So I was saving up for one of the more expensive, italian moto shoes, but took a chance and ordered the Black Nines instead... And I'm hella glad I did, friends! Of course, you might be saying, "But Sal, I am Italian!" Well, that's cool, too, man... but here's the deal on the Black Nines... I've always ridden in skate shoes or chucks because of the mobility and control-feel they give while I'm on the bike, but those suckers seriously lack protection. The Black Nines, on the other hand, are quick to impress because they are absolutely beefy enough to save your cankles and your piggies should you fall down go boom! And never fear, because whether your preferred style is to sport your leiderhosen tucked into your shoes (all Euro and shtuff) or to wear them cuffed like Brando (peace be upon him), these shoes are going to look t!ts-up fellas! Going further, the black Black Nines are darker than a black steer's tuckus on a moonless prairie night (as they say) They are much darker than they appear in the online photo, and let me just address what seems to be the quandary of sizing/fitment: I'm a 10. I ordered a 10. The shoes fit perfectly. In summation, the Black Nines hit on all cylinders, gents. My two suggestions: elasticated tongue-gussets, and S&S needs to develop a Winter version of this shoe. Okay that's it... One love!

Decent casual riding shoe
It's a good looking shoe if you want something that looks like ordinary shoes. These seem to run big. I usually wear a size 11 and bought a size 10. I probably could have gone down to a 9. They're pretty thick and I imagine they'll provide good protection, but as a result it made it a little difficult for me to feel the brake pedal and shifter. It takes some getting used to. Hopefully over time they'll wear in a bit more. Pretty much zero airflow. My feet get pretty hot in these.

Bought a second pair
I bought a pair last year for the season, and the rear tab pulled out of the shoe. I called the manufacturer and they replaced the shoe through RevZilla. I liked the shoes enough that when the manufacturer replaced them, I bought a second color just for variety.
They are very comfortable from the box, but I have inserted a DR Scholls insert to all of them for more support.
I get compliments on the shoes all the time. Most people think they are Chuck Tailors till i tell them they are MC shoes.
Overall i think they are good buy,

Comfortable and functional
I usually avoid buying shoes/boots online, but I really liked these. They run true to size in my opinion. A nice understated alternative to a traditional boot.

stylish comfortable and decent protection
I've been wearing these for about two weeks now and really like them. Obviously they don't provide protection like a true motorcycle boot, but for casual cruising I think they're more than adequate. They are great with a pair of Kevlar reinforced jeans and can be worn all day comfortably. I wear a size 13 shoe in these fit perfectly.

Good casual style motorcycle shoe
Once the shoes are broken in, they are pretty comfortable. I bought them because I was looking for a casual looking shoe to wear while riding in the city. Once the pants are pulled over, they look just like any other skate shoe on the market. It also offers decent protection with a really sturdy toe which takes some breaking in. My biggest complaint with the shoe is that it is not very breathable but I guess that was to be expected from a leather shoe,

Good protection for what they are designed for. I recommend them!
