Tour Master Response 2.0 Boots
I was fully prepared to write a terrible review after my first day. I had just received the boots before a six day ride from VA around Lake Ontario and back. The first night about 10 minutes from my stop, I got caught in a torrential downpour. I had neglected to wear other rain gear and thought I could beat the storm. Five minutes later my feet were soaked. Needless to say I was not happy. Dried off put a fan on my boots for the morning ride before going to bed. Still slightly damp in the morning I threw them in the dryer with several towels and had breakfast. Wore them all day and did think they felt more comfortable after then dryer. Well that day we also got caught in another torrential downpour. So bad you could kayak down the street. This time I had put on my rain gear and was surprised that my feet stayed completely dry. So it appears that it rained so hard the first night that the rain drove through my jeans and ran down my legs puddling in my boots. They do hold water well :). Since then I have ridden several thousand miles and still love these boots. They are pretty casual looking and I am thinking about some TCX Urban boots to wear on work days that I have meetings and dress up.

Inexpensive, but there are better options
These are an option if you're 100% focused on the price point, but for a little more money (~$20) you can do a whole lot better. The leather looked, felt, and breathed like plastic. For me, they also bulged around the ankles and didn't seem very good for either walking or riding.

I ride about 15K miles a year. I teach motorcycle training classes and am on my feet about 15 hours per class. The response boots have been very comfortable, warm and to date, water proof. Since I purchased the boots they've been exposed to water only one day but my feet stayed dry. Revzilla made my purchase experience and excellent one. They were very helpful in assisting me decide what size to purchase. Highly recommend Response boots and Revzilla. Thanks

Perfect boots for my needs and riding style
I tried four other types of boots before buying these, and all left something to be desired in terms of fit, comfort, protection, or compatibility with my bike's foot controls. These scored A+ on all counts. I'm completely satisfied with them. I might add that they're perfectly comfortable for walking around after you get where you're going, so you don't need to pack extra shoes.

Not what I thought they'd be
The boot works fine but I have several complaints. First they have zero grip, they slide on pavement very easily especially when wet. Second they don't breathe at all! I use them for everyday riding/work, at the end of the day my feet are soaked from sweat. If your not riding in rain everyday I don't recommend them, buy something breathable and get boat covers for the rainy days. They are much slimmer than I realized, they look more like women's boots to me. Lastly I'm not sure they last very long, they don't feel durable with everyday use.

Great fit, Nice look, and quality feel.
I purchased these boots with the intention to wear them to work (On an Ambulance) where I have to where black boots. These boots are comfortable while walking, but not as much while standing. Ridding in these boots took some getting use too (do to the harder rubber compound), but after a few rides I got use to it. I would Highly recommend these boots for riding to work or just for pleasure. I normally where an American 11 shoe (4e) wide width(4E) and the fit is true to size. The ankle protection is snug and feels solid. Good buy or under $100

Excellent boot for the price.
I usually wear a 9.5 D boot. I first ordered the 10 and it was too large. I returned them and got the 9's (they don't make a 9.5) and they fit very well. A bit snug at first width-wise, but after wearing them 4 or 5 times and breaking in a bit, they are very comfortable. I only wish they had more of a heel, but that doesn't detract much from the overall performance. I live in Florida and they are cool enough riding in the 80 to 85 degree range. Haven't felt too warm yet, but haven't yet ridden with them on a really hot (95+) day.
