Speed and Strength Women's Wicked Garden Shoes
God I love these
You have no idea how much I love these shoes. I've worn them practically every day for the past 3 months since I got them, whether I'm riding that day or not. It was summer time and I was roasting in my riding boots so I was trying to get away with wearing high top sneakers. I didn't feel that secure in them so I bought these because they look super cool, literally and figuratively. I can not flatfoot on my bike but I still felt much more secure in them with more grip on the ground during stops and backing my bike up. I didn't get as hot either. They are also super comfortable for walking around which I do a lot getting around a big university campus. The top part of the insole is peeling off now so I will have to replace those soon. But the rest of the shoe is holding up great!
Thank you, Speed and Strength for making a good looking, functional, high quality women's riding shoe that's not freaking pink.

Great for my summer scooter riding
These shoes are great for summer riding. I would recommend if you are a 1/2 size to order up. My size 8 (I wear usually a 8.5) is a little tight in the toes.
The style fits my sporty/retro style perfectly.
Some reviews mention the velcro tearing the laces--yes, this can happen, but I just tuck the laces in the shoe when I take them off. I like the velcro strap to keep the laces secure.

Great fit and feels like a shoe should
Fits my foot great with lots of support. No cutting or blisters even after 400 mile days. The only thing I would change is adding a bit more ankle protection like the male version of the shoe.

stylish and efficient
I tried them on as soon as I ripped them out of the box, I was so excited to get these. I choose the white and black pair because they matched most of my gear.
I am a short 5'1 with a 29 inch inseam and these add another inch. I threw them on when I had to move my bike for street cleaning so I didn't get to go on a long ride on them. I must say I hate parking because I can barely flatfoot on my 2006 ninja 250 but with these parking/reversing was significantly easier. before these I used hiking boots and Sidi riding boots. I find that these had more lift and traction. the fit was awkward at first, that might have been because they were new and I haven't broken them in, or cause I had ankle socks, or even because im not used to high top shoes.
but anyway, love these.

Toe started wearing out after two weeks
If you are going to be riding on the back of the motorcycle, these are for you! If not, don't get them.
I bought these boots and two weeks later, the toe has started falling apart and some threads are coming loose. I have only rode with them for about 500 miles, and they are only getting worse. I would expect this after a year of riding, but not two weeks. I am very disappointed in these. Sad to say I had to return them, because I liked everything else about them.

Great overall feel and look!
Although the feel is different from a normal shoe their still very comfortable and you can feel the durability and protection you get from wearing this shoe.

This shoe is comfortable and the material seems very durable. They were a little stiff at first, but broke in nicely. Great fit. I usually wear a 6 1/2, and the 6 fits perfectly. Also, super fast processing and shipping. I would definitely recommend them.

She loves them
Bought them for my girlfriend since she rides with me, she ended up buying her own bike and she wears these boots every time. She loves the look, says they look and feel like her nike air force one's. Overall good buy.
