Stylmartin Legend R Boots
Worst boots ever
First the good: they are waterproof. A little hot for summer, but they kept my feet dry while stomping through slush and snow in a spring ride. Maybe a good fall and spring boot.
The bad: whoever designed these never tried the prototype on. Side zipper is useless, you must release the buckle to get your foot in. The lower buckle passes over the zipper, you can force the zipper under but it's very tight. If you decide, like me, that it's too much of a hassle to undo the strap, and you push the zipper under the strap with your finger, then force your foot in like you are putting on your tightest race ski boots, you will be rewarded with a comfy fit. After a year of doing this, the boot still has not stretched enough to make this method easy. If you value style above all else, maybe this is the boot for you. Then there is the top. The top is flaired quite a bit. This would be fine if you were tucking motocross pants into them, but you're not. The boot tops are just too big when tucked under jeans. Did I mention you cannot get your foot into them? For the price paid, these boots should be better thought out.

Got the Look
Bought the boots after reviewing a lot of styles.
For the price, the boots are Good.
Fit is large, as stated in the review, but comfortable.
The only negative is the zipper - not the best. Boot does not need to have a zipper, and would rate much higher if it didn't have one.

These are super high quality premium leather boots. The fact they have all the motorcycle safety features in addition make these boots a great value. They could easily be fairly priced in the $400 range based on quality of leather and construction alone. They are very nice looking and stylish - a bonus: you can wear them on and off the bike. Stiff at first, fast to break-in, very comfortable to walk long distances in. I can verify the waterproofing, I rode in a heavy storm and hiked 2-miles of trails through mud and puddles - my feet were dry and warm. Do not be worried that they are not Gortex, I have Gortex lined boots and the moisture wicking technology in these boots are indistinguishable from my boots with Gortex. Sizing: As recommended, I ordered a size smaller than normal. It ended up being too small and I had to send back. I am a true US 9D, so I ordered that size. which is a 42 in European sizing and they fit absolutely perfect.

Anthony's size recommendation was WRONG!
My Legend R Boots arrived today. I followed Anthony's recommendation and ordered one size smaller. The boots are way too tight. They are going back to RevZilla tomorrow.

Almost Perfect but for Sweaty Feet
These boots are high quality, elegant and sturdy but somewhat difficult to put on and take off initially due to the stiffness. The waterproof membrane is not very breathable and my feet get extremely sweaty. The whole point of a waterproof boot is to keep feet dry, but in these, my feet are slipping around in soggy socks! I wear an 8.5 which is usually a Euro 42. I listened to the advice on the video and ordered a size down but found the 41 to be slightly tight. Get your regular size if you're going to wear thick socks. I like the euro sole because it doesn't trap pebbles like a Vibram tread lug sole. There's no shin protection to speak of nor is the armor as beefy as that of an adventure or cross boot. This is a good looking street engineer boot which in my opinion replaces the discontinued SIDI On Road Sympatex. I wish they made this boot in a more breathable, non waterproof version.

Elegant, Fussy, Soggy, What a Shame. Waste of a nice boot.
Great looking boots. Very comfortable. Although, not a whole lot of armor or protection. Zippers, straps and Velcro are poorly thought out and difficult to adjust. Velcro tab at top inside of boot is more of a cumbersome fashion accent than any useful fastener. It's just too tiny to reach over the fully closed zipper. Then it snags on stuff on your bike unless covered by pants. Can't get zipper all the way down without undoing instep strap or poking it with your fingers to slip under the strap - A huge pain. They could have designed a better method of securing the boot closed while keeping the style. All this is forgivable but in my opinion what completely ruins this fine looking boot is the fact that you're essentially putting your feet in plastic bags. They will sweat until you are slipping and sliding in a soggy soup inside the boot. They are simply unwearable for more than 30 minutes. I'm only keeping them because they look so DAM good.

Too small in some places, too big in others.
While the summary sounds negative at first, I actually love these boots. I have short, wide feet, so there's a bit of empty space in the toe that I'm not a fan of. Because of my foot shape, I had to order a size up, and they felt clunky for a while. The leather got pretty scuffed up in the first couple weeks, but once I got used to them, it't much better. These boots are also very large in the cuff, and easily go over your jeans. They won't go under your jeans unless you're wearing boot cut pants, though, and I had to cinch the buckle all the way down to keep them from shifting too much and eating my socks.
With all that said, they are comfortable as heck, and with a pair of insoles added, I have no problem spending all day on my feet. The scuffs from earlier are smoothing out and don't look so bad. The left toe is noticeably more worn than the right, but I suppose that's inevitable (unless you ride an old Triumph or have a heel shifter).
Air flow listed as poor, because they're heavy, leather, waterproof boots. Airflow is a bad thing here. They are quite warm if you ride in 100F+ weather, but you get used to it quickly.

I love these boots. I wear them everyday just barely getting the wear look in. I wear a 9 in boot sizes so it was spot on fits like a glove and very comfortable.
