Tour Master Response 2.0 Boots
You get what you pay for?
This is my second pair. First pair replaced under warranty after springing a leak in less than a year.
Customer service was excellent!
Boots are hot, but easy to walk in. I do ride all year long in Chicago, as hot as upper 90's and as low as -6 degrees. They experience water, heat, salt, cold and they are used 5 days a week.
For $100 they are good for a causal rider. I recommend them, if you fall in the casual category.
For everyday, extreme weather, better to look for something more durable.
By the way, my second pair (replacement from TM) lasted less than a year. They came apart at the top seems. Not made for everyday use.
I'm currently using Gaerne Pro Tech Adventure boot. See how they do come Chicago winter.

Melted Right Through
I hit a zero traction patch in the road and ended up doing a slower speed high-side crash that ruined my SECOND pair of these boots by melting the plastic toe and causing a 3rd degree burn on my foot. The first pair was ruined because the lace grommets are simply nylon loops and did not hold up well but I did get them replaced on warranty. I never really liked these boots, but tolerated them for the price and for the light walk around style. You can't comfortably walk around much but they are better than most boots. I'm not sure if there are better boots for the price, but I won't be purchasing them again.

Good basic motorcycle boot
I purchased these boots as a good starter boot to use for the MSF Basic Rider Course and to use for riding around town with my bike. These boots are comfortable when riding and walking around town. I wear a size 10 1/2 wide shoe and ordered a size 11 in this boot. They fit fine and are comfortable. The only issue is, I wish they had a loop in the back to make it easier to get into the boot.

1st Boots 2 years 20k miles
These boots held up well. My feet stayed dry in all but the hardest of rains....well until I wore a hole from all the shifting it had to go through in that mileage. 30-90 deg F and my feet really only suffered in the extreme ends of those temperatures. Considering they are very inexpensive and they held up through 2 years of year round riding, I can't complain. There are boots with more protection and more venting, but they are also more money.

Would be great if was higher quality.
The boot fits well, although a tiny bit large. While it is comfortable to walk in I wouldn't want to go long distances. Makes riding and shifting much better. However, my main complaint is that the inner lining is separating at the collar line of the ankle. I have had the boot less than a year and have put about 2800 miles on my bike. I am disappointed and surprised at the quality of the boot.

Everything as advertise.
I received the boots over a month ago and was able to finally ware them the other yesterday. The weather was in the mid 40's with light shows to heavy. My feet stayed warm and dry even at highway speeds.

Very nice lightweight boots that fit great and are very comfortable. They work great on the bike and are very comfortable for walking as well. To make sure they were broken in before I used them on the bike I wore them around the house for a couple of days. My feet didn't get hot at all and they were so lightweight I didn't feel like I was wearing boots at all. Seem to be good quality and I think they are priced right. I would buy them again

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.
