Speed and Strength Moment of Truth Shoes
A Boot for the warm months of the year
The strap disengages because it's suppose to. The plastic moves to allow different lengths, but once I set my length, it has never changed. The white are excellent high visibility short boots, which are a 12, I wear 11.5. I recommend you never cinch these tightly, but make them comfortable. The are easy to put on and to take off. For an affordable boot, I put these at the top of my list. Both boots fit very well, not so concerning other top brands which had a different right boot from the left. I highly recommend these for those who want to be seen when they're riding. I also recommend a light colored helmet for the same reason. You want people to see you, for your safety.

For the price they should have been alot nicer. Soles are wearing quite fast, and they are not worn much off the bike. The clasp/ratchet system is a joke, the plastic sucks, the rivet that holds everything together was installed incorrectly, I know they are replacable but whos not to say the replacment parts will be any better. And last of all the velcro is giving up. All this in about a month an a half. And +1 on the tounge digging your ankle.

Overall great, but with one exception
I may have to follow up after using these for a while, but my initial impression is very good. These shoes fit great right out of the box, they're easy to get in to and out of, and are comfortable without a huge break-in period. My only issue so far is the tongue digging into my ankle. Hopefully they'll break in and become more flexible and alleviate this problem. I've worn them on a few rides and they are easy to shift with and feel very natural on. They're comfortable enough to wear all day apart from the aforementioned tongue issue. I can't speak to the longevity yet, as I've only had them for about a month, but so far I really like them and would recommend them.

Cheap, flimsy latch
I opened the box, took out one shoe and when I attempted to unlatch the upper buckle the entire latch dislodged from the shoe. It's held in with an especially ultra cheap plastic flange tucked under a square leather lip. Total experience with the product, 30 seconds. I put it back in the box and sent it back for refund within an hour of receiving it. I'm not inclined to leave negative reviews, but that was really annoying.

ALL AROUND GREAT SHOE
Looked on many web sites for a nice riding shoe. Kept coming back to this brand and style. I'm glad I got them. I wear a 9 1/2 ... I got the size 9. This shoe is whole numbers only. My foot is happy with my decision. Very well made and comfortable. Revzilla had the best price I found.

2-year review Moment of Truth
Unless you're looking for a full or 3/4 height boot, these are perfect.
Fit: Slightly large. I wear a 10-1/2, and the 10 fit perfectly. They also accommodate my EEE width. Most comfortable boots I own... can be worn off the bike, no problem..
Build: Much sturdier and more robust than the pictures present. I've owned them 2 years, and wear them almost *daily*. They show little signs of wear,
Downside: Only one. I like the clasp and velcro combo closures, however, when unclasped, it's possible for the plastic tail that mates to the clasp to come off, and get lost. Not easy, just possible. In an off, they won't protect your shins.
My favorite qualities of the boot: Incredibly durable. Has held up inside and out, and look almost new except for some wear on the soul. Very comfortable on the bike. I've worn them from 40 to 95 degree weather, and they keep me warm and cool, respectively. They're not waterproof, however, I've worn them through many sudden downpours, without getting my feet wet, despite the perforations (I also have the S&S Urge Overkill, which are slightly higher, and waterproof, with the same excellent sole, and two clasps instead of velcro). Insanely comfortable, with infinitely variable adjustments on the clasp.
All things considered, a great sport / sport-touring boot. I intend to order another pair, just to have, in the event S&S decides to discontinue or change them.

Great with one issue
Bought these boots as my first pair of motorcycle boots. These fit like normal shoes and feel like they would protect very well but I am not inclined to test them. The one issue is that the clasp on the top strap is metal but the part it clips into is plastic and I worry that it will wear down eventually.
