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. April 30, 2015
Not comfortable 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. March 14, 2015
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. March 11, 2015
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. June 6, 2014
Good value. Like the shoe/boot. Casual for walking around yet sturdy for the ride. March 5, 2014
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! March 3, 2014
Great boot 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! February 3, 2014
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.

Yusseri Y asked: How much do these boots weigh? I'm looking at getting a size 12, but would need to have it then forwarded to me separately. So, I'd like to have an idea of what these boots weigh. The S&S website didn't have the details, and I haven't seen it here, either.
Unless I've missed the info somewhere ...

A shopper asked: does this product come in half sizes? i wear a 10.5 Apr 1, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
espeaks4u: I have read that many people use a size smaller, so if you are a 10.5 you would wear a 10.
But I personally have had my share of issues with shoe sizes, so being that I wear a 9.5 wide and they do not come in wide sizes, I decided to get a size 10. I would have to say its true to its size.
My advice is, if other than a 10.5, you can wear a 10 normally than do the 10, but if that is usually too small then go for the 11. Always remember that you can exchange it for free, just make sure you try it on indoors so that should you need to exchange them, they will still remain in new conditions. Hope this helps.
