Tour Master Solution WP Air Boot
Can't say anything bad
This is my first experience with Tour Master products, so far I am quite satisfied. The fit is good, I wear 9.5 shoes and these boots weren't listed in half sizes so I ordered size 10 which fit fine. As for the water proof part,I live in Arizona where it doesn't rain much. This coming summer will be the test for comfort in hot temps. But they can't be any hotter than other boots I have worn. Over all great product at great price.

Better protection than shoes.
I've owned these for 14 months now, and it's time to retire them. They've been worn almost every day, and tromped around the office all day for a year and two months. They're pretty much shot- soles are starting to fall off and a bit of stitching is letting go. They don't smell very good either. Time for new boots! For the price, they aren't bad for commuting, but not a whole lot of protection for canyon carving, etc.
I wear an 11 1/2 shoe. Vans, Sketchers, New Balance. Ordered size 11 boot, and it was too tight, had to exchange for a 12, which was a bit roomy.
Decent, but not outstanding. First impression was that they feel like wearing rubber galoshes. Gel insoles helped.
Haven't crashed in them, but I'd have to say they'd be better than shoes if you were to go down wearing them. Decent shin protection, and a little 2" round armor thing to protect the ankle bone from pavement. Other than that, they're pretty floppy boots; no real stiffness to them at all.
Rode in a light rain for maybe 10 miles on the first day of owning them. Feet stayed dry. I usually drive the car when it rains though, so these boots haven't seen much rain use.

Nice product for a great price
These boots are very comfortable, I wear a size 12D and they fit great right out of the box. Have not worn on bike yet as it is winter and these are warm weather boots. These boots seem to have plenty of protection for the ankles & shins and are easy to put on and take off.

Great all around boot
I purchased these boots to take a two day off road class. The boots are comfortable and protective.
The foot bed and sole are strong enough to stand on the pegs all day. I would recommend these boots.

Good In The Cold
I had debated between these and the non-Air versions.
I live in Texas. It gets freakin' HOT in the summer, but it can also get rather cold in the winter. I read numerous reviews on these and the non-Air version, then waited a month to think it over before making my purchase.
The Air version seems to be just fine for cold weather. I'm certainly happier I got these instead of the non-Air versions I had been debating between.
It has been in the mid-20° F range for my commutes to work on my Harley-Davidson XR1200 Sportster. I don't like to ride in much cooler temperatures, because the air-cooled engine has a hard time getting up to operating temperature.
I have not tried these in the heat of Texas. I can only assume these will be cooler than their non-Air counterparts.
I bought these boots to fit the size boot I always wear, and that seems to be accurate for me.
I'm an old Marine, so my boot-style of choice is lace-up, because the fit on lace-up boots can't be beat.
The Tour Master Solution has a zipper, so slack can not be taken up to create that perfect fit. Mine fit me a little loose around the heel, but they do not come off without unzipping them.
As a bonus: There is just enough extra slack at the top of the boot to tuck away a little Beretta .32 TomCat in a boot holster. It would look silly if I tried to stuff my 1911 in there, though.
Are they water resistant? If it rains, I take the cage whenever possible. If I ever get trapped in the rain because the weatherman lied to us, I'll find out.

Great 1st pair of boots
This is my 1st pair of proper motorcycle boots and it was a great choice. Rode 500km in a tropical country (Singapore) and the comfort was great, surprisingly not overly hot for a waterproof boots. Didn't felt there was a need to break-in and could walk around comfortably on my 1st use. The fit is spot on for me. Putting on and taking out was easy.

This product has excellent style and comfort. I have been using these boots everyday since I got them and wear them to work. Im a medical student and wear the boots to get to the hospital, which is 50km away and wear them throughout all my rounds. That should tell anyone about the comfort issue and if you want to know about the ventilation issue, I live in the Dominican Republic (its hot here all the time), I have used these boots for 3 weeks and they still smell new when I take them off after the days work.
Fit: these boots are the exact size footwise. Im a 9 1/2 and had to get 10s and they are half an inch large. My foot doesnt move inside the boot and there is good protection for the ankle.
The area i was most displeased with is the fit in the shin area. I am a soccer player so my legs are fit and strong. They were a little big here, I dont think they will be waterproof if I submerge the entire boot. If you have thick legs they should fit perfect if not you should check if they come in a smaller diameter. Protection on the shins is great. Boot fits well under jeans and looks well for any job.

Good fit. Great price
Fits slightly large for size. I typically wear an 11.5 but I took a chance on the 11 and it fits great.
