Speed and Strength Women's Wicked Garden Shoes
love this riding shoe!
I knew i had to have this the moment i saw it. i waited until it came back into stock on the site and ordered immediately. I'm normally a ladies 7, and ordered so. it fits perfect. the tag inside also says "womens" unlike the picture someone else posted where it says men. sizing was true for me. maybe they changed it for the second run? i get good protection for riding around town, and I can shift very easily with these shoes. they dont look too big to me, but I wear vans normally so im used to fat shoes. the purple lines on the white sole are actually stitched, and i noticed a little lack of quality there, so dock a little. also, the laces get stuck on the velcro and start to fuzz up and shred a little. wish it had a second pair of laces, like all other shoes come with.but thats about it. only rode with them for a few hours, in cool weather, so cant say they are too hot, but i dont get sweaty feet much anyway so for me its ok. I love them and really wanna buy a second pair while they are still in stock.

Just what I was looking for
I have hunted for awhile to find a pair of boots that were stylish, comfortable and yet provided protection. These boots appear to be all that and I would recommend if you like wearing tennis shoes, they are just as comfortable as your favorite pair. Good price as well.

Great color match
Although I purchased these shoes for my wife, who enjoys being the passenger and needed a good riding shoe with minimal protection. SHE loves them. Especially, because the colors, black /purple on the shoe match the color of her riding jacket...Thumbs up!!!

Good for a first bike shoes, but....
All the reviews say something about wearing a normal shoe size of 8.5 and ordering a plain size 8 for these bike sneaks. I followed the general consensus, since I, too, wear a 8.5 for everyday shoes. I found that even with my thinnest pair of socks, my toes are still bumping against the edge of the toebox. I had to cut my nails down for it to be reasonably comfortable. Had I gone with a 9, I'm sure the shoe would have been too large and floppy for it to be effectively safe. I haven't worn them often enough to see if the shoe stretches like some of the other reviews say.
That being said, the shoe itself is of good quality: nice construction, sturdy sole, thick ankle protection (does not go higher than my ankle, though) and I absolutely love the safety-velcro strap to keep the laces tucked in. They're comfortable to walk in, they look awesomely chic and trendy for being biker shoes, and they're good for car driving as well. My only complaint is the fact that an 8 is a tad snug. A half-size would be much appreciated. The price makes this shoe a steal, so I'm willing to hang on to these and see if they stretch.

Very satisfied overall
The shoes are really cute, and very roomy (I have fat little feet). I will have no problem wearing thicker socks for fall riding weather. The one down side was that they felt pretty stiff against the back of my ankle. It may be that it is just hitting lower than my boots used to, and I am not used to the feel there. I am hoping they will soften up just a bit over time. Overall I am quite pleased with these riding shoes.

This shoe is very comfortable and great for around town on and off the bike. Not a ton of protection, but again enough for around town. It runs very large, could probably go down a whole size down; they stretch a little too. I was able to tighten the laces enough to be wearable in my normal size, just very roomy. Would purchase again as they are very inexpensive, overall good value.

Great shoes, very comfortable
I ride a sportbike but I don't race, and most of the women's shoe/boot choices for more casual riders are clunky or look like something you'd find in a Harley store. When they're on these look pretty much like sneakers, but they are still pretty supportive and I love the velcro to keep the laces from getting tangled in anything.
I normally wear 8.5-9 and got these in 8 based on other reviews.. spot on. They are very comfortable to walk around in off the bike which is a plus.
The only problem I really have is that the laces that come with the shoes are SUPER long. The velcro strip is plenty to deal with the long laces but still, I'll probably be replacing them.
