Speed and Strength Cruise Missile Boots
Cool Boots for the Select Few
I brought these boots because I like the style & the way they look. I needed something that looked good and didn’t stand out like an engineering boots do at work. I ride almost daily and I work in the IT world and I needed boots that were comfortable, especially since I get gout about every other month. So the comfort is a plus. Reading the reviews on here, help me to decide to order the boots 1 size smaller, and those reviewers were spot on. I wasn’t too impress with the insoles since they are very thin toward the toe of the boots. Those have been replaced after the first couple of days. I have worn the boots daily for about 3 weeks and I love the heck of them. Also your feet don't slip out from under you when pushing your bike backward on loose gravel & sand, which is definitely plus over past boots I have owned.
My coworkers & brothers have made favorable comments about the way they look and they have even asked me where I acquire them from. I have refused to tell them since I don’t want them wearing the same boots I wear. So I’m going to recommend to you all, to buy a different style of boots as well, since these boots only look good on me.

Pros and Cons
Good looking, durable boot but as listed, it has no ankle protection and given the immense weight of these boots that doesn't really make sense.
I'm 6'3" and the heels are a little tall at about 1-1 1/2".
I normally wear a size 11 1/2 but ordered an 11 since most reviews said these boots run large. I could have probably done fine with a 10 1/2, as the 11's are pretty loose.
I like these boots, but will continue to look for a quality, rigid boot with a lot less weight to carry around.

This boots is absolutely comfortable, wore it for a whole day of riding and working. However, come a small issue. The stitches on the boots start to come off. When I got the boots, the next day I went out riding and no kidding, the stitches on the shifter side start to come off(Not even 48hours of owning the boots). Additionally, the craftsmanship of the boots is unbalance on each side. Also I received the boots with a small cut on the side of the sole.
But I must still say the comfort is impressive, it feels like I am not even wearing a boots. Its soft and lighter than normal boots. I would still recommend this product. I might just be that unlucky dude.

Awesome shoes, the size does run a little large but overall awesome boots.
I would defiantly look over the size chart before you buy these boots and double check what size will work best for you. I normally wear i size 11. I went with the size 10 and they fix perfectly. They even work great as all day shoes, feel great whenever you riding. They also give you plenty of grip compared to other boots i used before. Overall i would recommend this to anyone looking for a excellent pair of boots for a good price range. You will not be disappointed.

Large but good
Boots run larger, at about 1 whole size, than average. The zipper also does little to secure and reduce sizing, but that's expected. The styling is understated enough that I can ride to the hospital and round without having anyone really notice these are riding boots! They feel solid enough to keep your feet together the moment you decide to visit the pavement, and they are holding up very well to normal use. I've worn them on multiple work days and they are just comfortable enough to keep on the whole day without begging to have them off by the end of the day.
If anything, just remember: buy 1 size smaller.

Great Boots for the price
I like these boots and wear them often. They look and feel good. I have had no issues with the zipper (that was a concern of one of the reviews). They are fairly easy to clean up. They are only showing minor tread wear - I expect they will last. I was concerned when I first got them that the bottoms would wear quickly because they are softer than my other boots but, this was not the case.

Order 1/2 size smaller than you think
Like most people said, these run a little large, I wear a 9.5 tennis shoe, 8.5 dress shoe. Based on the other reviews, I opted for a size 8 in these boots and I'm very glad I did. They fit well and look great!
