I'm glad I bought these boots
So far, I'm liking these boots quite a bit. They're basically just what I wanted...a boot just tall enough to cover the ankle that I can use for normal everyday riding, and not so tall that I can't wear them if I pull off my outer pants and want to hike around in shorts a bit.
The tread, which isn't at all aggressive, and it's low height make it somewhat limited off road. And it's not the boot you want to choose if you want your feet to be super-cool. But so far, I've used these boots between 85 and 105 degrees F, and I've not found them to be too hot. I've not been through any wet weather, so I cannot comment about their waterproofness.
They were a little stiff and unyielding at first, but they broke in quickly and they're pretty comfortable now. I haven't got that many miles on them yet, but they seem to be holding up OK.
I wear a 10.5/45 in everything else, and was about to order these boots in that size too. The Revzilla guy I spoke to recommended I buy a size 10 instead, saying they ran a bit large, and he was right on the money! Size 10 turned out to be perfect for me.
Bottom line is that I think they're well worth the price, based on what I've seen so far!

Great first time boot
I saw this boot on the site, and it had been on back order, so I put in a reminder for it! Well story short, I had signed up my my MSF class and was wondering if I was going to wear my work boots and lose another pair to the rain! lol
I got the reminder from Revzilla order them they came on time, try them on and of course like any new shoe or boot alittle tight! But I did as they said in the video, walked around the house in them and by the time the class had started they felt good on the feet.
It rained on the last day of the class and they did well in the rain! But for me , and this is only for me I will have to see how I can put my lift that I have for my leg in them. My left leg is shorter than my right due to a broken leg back as a kid.
But if you are a first timer and need a good riding boot, then this is the one. And for sure the price is right. Now I have to get a summer and winter jacket to wear> Anyone have any suggestion's?

TourMaster = poor quality
Maybe it is just my luck but I have had a run of bad luck with TourMaster products. I purchased these boots in March 2012 and the sole on the right boot split open across the ball of the foot in less than a year/8000 miles of riding. That was when I was riding a ST1100. Another case, I had a pair of summer gloves that did not last the summer before the stitching in the fingers came apart. TourMaster did replace those but the replacements did the same thing. I had a mesh jacket that the stitching on it started to come apart. I have not had those problems with Icon boots, Scorpion gloves or Olympia Gear jackets. TourMaster = poor quality

These boots are great for riding. They are water proof. I walked around a track three times in them in about two hrs just walking around. They are very comfortable

Excellent boot for the price
I've had these for about 6 months now and have worn them in all conditions. They are a hot boot, I may need to find something better ventilated for the southern summers but that wasn't unexpected considering they are waterproof. My feet stayed dry after riding through many hours of heavy rain. After getting some gel inserts I found them to be very comfortable and have worn them all day at work on many occasions. I'm not happy with the laces, they are wearing out quickly. The velcro lace cover is tearing them up while also being finicky to use. But keeping in mind the price point I would buy them again.

Comfortable boots on and off the bike
I was looking for a low profile boot because there isn't much space around the shifter on my Goldwing. The profile is lower than most other boots but I'm still having trouble with space when downshifting. Upshifts are fine. Boot is very comfortable and I can wear it all day on and off the bike...no need to switch shoes when walking around. I'm a size 13 in all shoes/boots and I ordered a size 13 and it fits perfect. Boot is on the narrow side so if you have wide feet, you may feel a bit cramped. Quality is good, not excellent. The tongues were clearly sewn differently with the left side not pulling back as far as the right side when entering the shoe. Minor issue but quality could be better. Laces are good length and are held in place nicely with velcro strap. The sole is terrific with lots of traction and is hard/strong enough for me to put the Goldwing on center stand. Previously I had to put on a pair of construction boots when standing on the center stand to get the Wing off the ground. This is a good looking boot without the usual boot looking 2 step sole. Has more of a shoe looking sole that looks great. Very easy to slip your foot in and out with the speed lacing system. Velcro strap is well designed and is a good size...not one of those huge wide straps you see on other shoes/boots. Reflective tape in back is very visible at night, This is a great boot if you're looking for all day comfort.
