Speed and Strength Hard Knock Life Boots
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!

First set of riding boots but I think they are worth the money.
-While they feel a tad bit large, they feel very comfortable.
-They feel a bit clunky, but are definitely reinforced in the right place and do not interfere with my controls.
-Stiff, but pliable enough to walk in for hours
-A little busy, but yet stylish.
Oh, and great price too!

Great boot and comfortable
First up ride for these boots was a 5 day ride through Northern Luzon in the Philippines and they performed greatly. The clips for the strap not a problem and easy to get on and off, the boots provided excellent stability on the ankles. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending these boots and the style is ok too.

First Pair of Riding boots
Have been wearing the boots for about a month now and feel these are really comfortable when riding. Not so much when your walking around all day in them, would suggest buying some padded soles if that is your intention.
Airflow is great considering how hot it gets here in Australia and hopefully I wont have to test how strong it is.
Overall a great pair of boots for the price that you pay, definitely recommended this to any commuter.
