Speed and Strength Women's Motolisa Boots
Great stylish light boot
The boot fits true to size, usually a size 8 and it is perfect. I am 5'4" 145lbs with muscular calves, this boot easily zips up with skinny jeans and socks! The zipper is a little flimsy for what I would have expected, you have to be gentle when unzipping. Was very comfortable and needed very limited breaking in before riding.

Crash tested, tight fit, but looks great
I mostly bought these for the looks. I had been wearing black knee boots for my first week of riding, but was tired of slipping on the oily garage floor, so I bought these because they looked like regular boots. When I first got them, they were incredibly stiff and required a few days to break in, but now they fit just fine. Be warned - the stiffness WILL affect your shifting on the first day, so wear them around a bit before riding. As other said, the calves on these are VERY tight. You will only be able to wear skin tight skinny jeans or tights under these. They are not for wearing over motorcycle pants! Because they are so tight, sometimes I have trouble zipping them up, but I don't foresee the zipper breaking anytime soon. A snap popped off within the first week, but since I never use the snaps, it's not a big problem. They're incredibly uncomfortable against bare skin, so I highly recommend never doing this. There's a label in the back that is very itchy. It's not a problem as long as you wear tights or jeans.
I was in a crash yesterday at 45 mph, and went over the tank and slid 35 ft. There is a mark on my CBR 250's tank from my boot, but my feet are 100% okay. You don't know how important your feet are until you can't use them, so don't forget to get riding boots!
Despite the fit issues, this is as solid boot, and I love that it's not too ostentatious or girly. Some lady rider equipment out there looks like they're for 14 year old girls, and I'm happy to report that these look like regular boots. I wear them around the office when I ride in, and get compliments from people who don't realize they're riding boots.

Love this boot!
I bought these boots mainly for their looks and because I wanted something sturdier and more protective than the fashion boots I had been riding in. I like that the boots are tall and the buckles lend themselves to being stylish for sport or road bikes.
I am 5'8" and wear a size 8.5 normally, so I ordered an 8 (no half sizes) and they fit perfectly. I will say that the shaft of the boot is somewhat narrow but not uncomfortable once they're zipped up; however, people with large calves might have issues. The boots are definitely stiff but I can feel that they're breaking in after walking around and riding in them. I did have a little difficulty shifting during my first ride with them because of the stiffness, but I expect that to go away after time.
I am definitely satisfied with my purchase and Revzilla's great customer service!

Best boot for the price
These dont come in half sizes which is a shame but i am a 7.5 in shoes/boots and the size 7s were absolutely perfect.
In terms of summer comfort, the exterior is leather , the interior is polyester which doesnt help you out in the summer.
Foot feels secure, able to sustain a light accident (dropped my 250cc) and a good deal as boots go which if they contain any armor at all, seems to be priced from expensive to second mortgage. These have very light protection but some reinforcement around the ankle. Sweet deal!

I love these boots so beautiful and stylish! A little stiff at first but break in easy. I expect a little stiffness for a brand new boot anyways. Plus protection always calls for some stiffness! I usually wear a size 7 I bought a 6 and they fit perfect!

Acceptable quality, good price.
These boots are a little big over my chicken legs, but the foot portion fits well. One boot has a pucker in the ankle that snaps when I walk. I hope that works out as the boots break in. The zippers aren't super smooth but they function. Overall, the quality is acceptable, but not great.

Great boot held up in a fall
I bought these for my wife so she had something protective to take the msf course with. She dropped the bike a few times during the course and it landed on her leg. These boots protected her every time and she got up no problem. She won't be riding but they still look good to wear whenever.

Great Boot! Watch the calves!
I am a size 8.5 regularly but after reading many reviews I went with size 9. I am glad I did. I am 5'5 145lbs with very muscular calves. I love this boot, but I have kind of a hard time zipping them up with my jeans and socks.(I wear my boots over my jeans) I am hoping after more wear it will get easier as the material will relax. I must say, once they are up, the boots look great.
