Speed and Strength Hard Knock Life Boots
Poorly Glued Sole
When I received the first pair the sole was not glued properly. Revzilla sent a new pair no problem.
I have worn them for about 20-30 rides, mostly to and from work. I don't wear them at work so minimal time actually wearing them, needless to say the sole has started to come loose.
While I do like the boots I would not recommend them for their durability, I don't care to imagine the out come of a rubber side up incident.

First motorcycle boot
Very sturdy and protects the ankles. Looks great on and off the bike. The straps that keep the laces tucked in do what they're supposed to. The left boot tongue sometimes pokes your foot a weird way but you just have to stick your finger in and fix it. At speed they get decent airflow. :)

You get what you pay for
These boots only lasted me a few rides. The glue between the sole and the heel came apart on both boots. The lace is pretty cheap as it broke when I was tightening the laces. It's pretty clunky and not as comfortable to wear all day. They also provide no air flow so my feet get pretty hot. They were great in colder weather though. I won't be buying anything from S&S because of how quickly these boots fell apart.

The boots arrive with no cushioning in the insole. Even after I added a gel insole, the heels still hurt my foot after a couple hours of wear. I have had to take a spare pair of shoes to work to change into as soon as I arrive. Another problem is the buckles on the cross strap. The left buckle makes a nice sharp clicking sound when closing indicating that it is securely closed, and indeed it remains closed. The right boot's buckle, however, doesn't make a click and doesn't stay closed no matter what I do. I've tried pressing hard, wiggling it, adjusting the strap tighter and looser. No good. It just opens up as soon as I flex my ankle.

Good protection but doesn't last long.
Purchased from a local dealer. Rode with the boots to work M-F and in less than a month, the glue between the sole and heel on one boot separated. Has the look of quality, but I'm disappointed. This is the last S&S riding gear I'll buy.

Looks great but needs refinement
II I had to return these boots because the left buckle kept popping open while walking or when my ankle was bent. That was a huge bummer because I really liked them, now they aren't in stock. Also something else I noticed, they were very slick on a hardwood floor. Not sure why? One other thing to note is that the rubber shift pad across the top hurt my toes pretty bad when walking.

Like the shoe/boot. Casual for walking around yet sturdy for the ride.

Excellent riding boot!
Just used these boots on a long weekend ride. The boots where very comfortable and gave me a good sence of protection. They do fit a little big I where a 14 in sneakers and the boots in a 13 fit perfect with no issues!! I walked around Mardi Gras in them for 3 hours and they were very convertible with no problems!
