Really Like the Legend R Boots
I received my boots about a week ago. It took a couple of days of wearing them to work to really start the break in. They were very stiff at first but now they are very comfortable and easy to walk in. I wanted a boot that I could wear to ride and walk around in. I found it in the Legend R. They are a lot lighter than I expected. The armor points are very nice to have.
I had a hard time deciding between the Legend (greased black) and the Legend R (brown). I'm glad I went with the Legend R. They are not "brown" like I was concerned about. They are so dark that they appear to be black at first. After a week, the patina is beginning to start showing at the bend points. I have received several positive comments this week and I have to agree that the Legend R is a good looking and functional boot.
For sizing, I normally wear a US 12 and the 46 Euro fits perfectly. Thanks to the customer service team at Revzilla for answering my questions. I am really enjoying these boots.

Quality comfortable boots.
From the moment I put them on, they were comfortable. It took only two rides to break them in. They have a soft vented liner that works well to keep the temperatures in check. They worked well splashing through standing water without leaking. Low profile and flexible to feel the controls. The break in look is great, and is getting the weathered brown color in areas. Haven't tried them in hot weather yet, but should be fine. Not too much insulation on cold rides but works well with thick high socks.
Size 42 fit perfectly with room for thick socks and foot swelling.

Worth the price
I did order a size smaller like the video recommends and the fit was correct. This boot feels great for both riding and walking around. It comes up farther on my calf than any other boots I own but that is not a bad feature. The adjustability at the top makes it fit the way you like. I have not been in heavy rain so far but brief showers caused no leakage. My only gripe is that the lower strap must be loosened to get the zipper all the way to the down position. Maybe with a little more break-in I won't need to unzip it all the way, but for now, it takes extra time to unbuckle, zip, then re-buckle the strap. Beautiful boot with a comfortable fit right out of the box.

Comfortable on and off the bike.
Very good looking boot that fits very nicely. I bought my normal size and find they fit well with a medium sock. A bit stiff on the first wearing but they formed to my foot quickly. Very comfortable to walk in. Pant leg fits nicely over the top or tucks in comfortably. A true classic old school boot that looks and functions well. Worth the money.

Excellent boots and even more impressive customer service
I have ordered and received the last pair (I gues) of the size 43 of Stylmartin Legend R. I am wearing 9 1/2 in US. I absolutely love the boots, the fit was right on, the quality is impeccable and the comfort (I wear them all day) excellent. I had ordered and returned a pair of sidi air trafic and they are just not for me. I was a bit worried about the size but if you wear about 9 1/2 US you will love they way these boots fit. The boots were made in Slovakia but it is undeniable italian design. There is not a single thing that I could complain about these boots, it is hard to find them, so good luck. In addition, I have to tell you the customer service is absolutely one of the best I have encounter, the guys name I think it was Philip.

I was after some leather boots with a fairly low profile (thinner heel, thinner sole, lower profile toe box) and these are pretty much it when compared to other leather boots. These are very comfortable boots, look good and are indeed pretty good quality -- although I've only lived with them for a few weeks so far. Fit is adjustable with the straps, you can tighten up the shin for wearing under your pants, or loosen them to wear your pants inside. They start to break in well after just a couple days of all-day wear. There's some heel movement at first, which is typical of "normal" leather boots, and this has started to go down as they break in, I'm not worried. Haven't gotten caught in any heavy rain yet, but I wear removable covers in those conditions anyway, so waterproofness isn't a priority for me. I was seeking all-day comfort, decent protection, leather, and a low enough profile to keep shifting easy and not look like I'm headed into combat or a punk rock show.

Style meets function!
Still in the breaking in process, but they are softening up nicely and fit like a... relaxed glove. They originally had some movement but as the leather breaks in they feel great! I wear them under the pants and had to snug up the straps a bit. I'm Just starting to see the "vintage" looking wear the company claims to incorporate on purpose, and i like it. I've ridden in the high 70's and high 30's and my feet were cool and warm respectively. They feel like a dream to walk around in for a longer period of time compared to my Sidi adventures which are like casts. Fit was almost identical to Sidi boots, although just slightly looser. I have 45s in both and wear an 11 in vans, usually 11.5 in adidas sneakers. Hope this help other online shoppers... I've only seen light rain, but i'm hoping the waterproof claim is the real deal. Gators all the way up and 100% dry so far! Overall, I'm extremely satisfied and see these as my everyday riders. I'll let the stiff Sidis be for more serious sport or adventure riding. I didn't give the full "bang for the buck" rating just because they're at a higher price point, but if you want awesome italian boots, you gots ta pay up!!!
