Tour Master Solution 2.0 WP Boots
3 warranty replacement before they started carrying wide sizes
Just started my 4th season and got a new pair of Solution 2.0 in 9.5 wide. First 3 seasons I'd wear out the liner from my foot moving in the slightly bigger boot. The 9.5 wide fits my foot darn near perfect. Havery a few weeks commuting and walking in them already, they feel great all day. when they make it to July without being replaced under warranty I'll be very impressed with the addition to the product line.

the boots are easy to put on side zipper with Velcro cover and tab.

Lots of bang for the buck.
For not much more than a C-note, you get some pretty decent boots with the Tourmaster Solution 2.0 WP boots.
Regarding sizing, I wear a size 12 in nearly every type of footwear. With these Solution 2.0 boots, however, I had to go with size 13 Wide. To me, they are sized small. And even the size 13s were very tight when I first began wearing them, but they broke in nicely within a couple hours of walking around the office.
Regarding comfort, these are excellent. I commute on my bike every day, and have started just wearing these boots around the office instead of switching to regular shoes. And I've had zero issues riding long distances with these boots, either, and I've hiked about a mile with no issues. They're that comfortable.
The zippers seem durable, as does the velcro. There's not a lot of armor built in. I do like the minimalist styling.
There are no air vents with these boots, and I haven't worn them during the heat of summer, but I'm betting their hot but not unbearable. And with a heavy pair of wool socks, I've ridden down to 10° Fahrenheit and my feet were warm enough to be comfortable.
You don't get a lot of high-end features with this boot, but it's comfortable, waterproof, and relatively inexpensive. I recommend these boots at this price. I hope this review helps you.

Extremely happy with these boots
I was looking for a wet/cold weather boot that I could wear everyday. These boots have held up to everything I've thrown at them. I feel secure in them and I didn't have to break the bank to get all the protection. I'm very pleased with them.

These boots are a fairly good touring boot, get what you pay for.
My reason for trying the Tour Master was because it comes in a wide version and I do have a wide foot. After trying other boots, this was my best option, and a real compromise in comfort and durability. I had to buy 2 sizes larger to get a boot I could get my flippers into.
You get what you pay for and these boots are fairly comfortable like wearing a pair of tennis shoes, even if they are a bit ridiculously long for me. I will always use these for short trips around town and easy riding.
I did find a much better fit with Forma boots, better in every way.

little narrow for a 10
I'll recommend that for a 10, to buy a 45, since 44 is too narrow.

Soft and comfy; runs small
Ordered the Wide version, which was wide enough for my paddle feet. Unfortunately, the overall size was too tight, so I am returning for a size up.
This boot is a typical touring boot. The video sums it up well, but I would add that the liner looks a little flimsy. If you wear a boot daily, the liner may fail before the rest of the boot. At this price, I will take the risk.
Very comfy for walking around, which is all I am doing in the snowy weather right now. Build quality appears to be very good, and the sole looks thick and well-treaded.

Wonderful as commuter boots
This is my first pair of riding boots and I was apprehensive they would be too obtrusive to wear in everyday life (for commuting) or would be constricting like a ski boot. These boots have been incredibly comfortable and I have been able to wear them while at work. They are wonderful for riding and I honestly have enjoyed them quiet a bit.
