Speed and Strength Run With The Bulls 2.0 Shoes
great motorcycle boot
These are comfortable both while riding and walking around. Nice and sturdy in the toe, heel, and ankle area. The toe box was a little bigger than I am used to in a shoe so it took me a fee rides to get comfortable shifting, but now they are great.

Similar to work boots, but more stylish and motorcycle oriented
These high tops are very sturdy with armor in the ankle area and a reinforced toe area. Comes with a Velcro strap to keeps your laces tucked in. Only complaint is the lack of cushion under the feet but that's easily fixed with some insoles.

Beefed up J's
This is my first pair of motorcycle footwear and I find them to be more than what I expected. Compared to my military boots, they are more reinforced in the toe, ankle, heel and are stiffer. They feel comfortable out of the box, like a new pair of boots that needs to be broken in and are true to size for shoes. I wear an 11 in nike, asics and brooks. 11 in these fits just like my other shoes. The weight of the shoe is heavier than my work boots. Overall a great value and can easily transition into casual gear.

Just what I was looking for.
Stylish boots that still offer decent protection.
Listen to other reviewers though, get another sole and put it in before it is too late. Mine started showing wear after 2 months before I read the reviews again and noticed it was a weak spot.

A little bulky, one lace almost torn in half out of the box
3 stars for the nearly torn shoe lace out of the box.
I ordered these hoping they lived up to the reviews but I didn't even get a chance to try them out really. They came out of the box already laced up, as if they were returned from a customer already ( not sure if it's common they come already laced ). The right lace was already nearly ripped in half in one spot and surely it would completely rip if I tried to tighten and tie them.
I wear anywhere from an 11 in chuck taylors to 13 in adidas. I went with the 13 since that's the size of most of my other shoes and boots and it was a little on the large side. 12 probably would've been just right but I think it would've been tight on the side of my feet since they also seemed a little narrow.
Overall they look cheap to me but they felt like high quality. They seem to be on the bulky side but that is expected since it does offer protection. I'm not a fan of the stitching around the sole, you can tell it will eventually come out like another customer posted. The pull loops on the back seemed misaligned, the placement didn't match compared to each other ( minor cosmetic issue I know ). Personally I think they need to remove the unsightly "SS" or make it much smaller or perhaps black to blend in better.
I did like the toe reinforcement for the shifter and the strap for securing the laces.
But this is about all I can comment about since I returned them and didn't get to take them for a ride. I won't be ordering another pair, although they seem like they would do the job as intended. I'm just looking for something else.

Just what I was looking for.
I've ridden dirtbikes and atv's with boots on, and I didn't like that I could hardly feel the gear selector or rear brake lever. Plus, I ride a street bike and bulky boots are not really on my radar for that. I love that these sneakers look and feel like regular hi-top sneakers. very comfortable, especially coming from a college student who spends his day walking around a campus all day when I take the bike. I love that they are heat resistant and the toe is rubberized for protection. I can very comfortably feel the foot controls. great product!

A stitch in time.
Nice shoe, the only gripe I have is the stitching along the outside inner edge where the sole is sewn to the shoe has come undone by two stitches on the gear selector shoe, probably from contact with the gear selector. This occurred after two days of riding but has not unraveled any further.

Best out there
I bought a pair of these 2 and a half years ago, just bought a second pair now since the first are getting pretty worn out. By far the best shoes, or "motorcycle shoes" I've ever used. I only wear these, not regular shoes anymore.
