Tour Master Solution WP Air Boots
Great boot for the buck
I was looking at several more expensive boots but then found these. The reviews seemed positive so I decided to save ~$100 and order them. They are comfortable enough for riding and not too stiff to walk around a little in. I wear a men's 9.5 and took the advice of another reviewer to go down in size to a 9, rather than up to a 10. The fit is spot on. Great boot for the money. NO RAGRETS! (We are the Miller's reference.)

1500 mile review
I just got back from a 1500 mile trip. Rode from Lorton, VA to Miami, FL. With that being said, these boots performed very good.
Please notice that I said they performed very good but not excellent. I was caught in heavy rain (2 hours) and while my left foot stayed completely dry, my right foot was soaked.
The boot was extremely wet (ankle down) on the inside and I had to leave a hotel hair dryer for about two hours for it to dry.
Other than that incident, the boot is awesome. My feet stayed cool and non sweaty (while not raining). I ordered a 9 size and fits just a hair larger which I liked. Very comfortable. Can be worn all day. Yesterday I walked all AIMEXPO and then rode another 4 hours and my feet were very happy.
What I will try next is to buy 303 Fabric Guard and spray the mesh areas of the boots and see if it helps.

My new favorite boots
I've been riding nearly 30 years, I ride a LOT compared to most, and have owned a lot of boots during that time. Most recently, in the past few years I was wearing the original Solution WP (non air) boots; and then I switched from those to some (motorcycle name brand) brand "all year comfort on/off bike" type boots for the last few pairs. Luckily for me, (motorcycle name brand) stopped making the model I was wearing. After looking around I decided to try these, and I couldn't be happier! I've worn them all day every day since I bought them, and they are the most all-day comfortable riding boots I've ever owned. They really do breathe well, my feet used to be overly hot and sweaty at the end of the day but not with these boots. They are also much more waterproof than I would have expected, I've ridden in heavy rain and even waded through 3-4" of water when putting on my raingear in a heavy thunderstorm in Houston recently. I didn't even notice until afterward (too busy doing the raingear dance), but my feet stayed perfectly dry. I may need to buy another non-air pair when winter gets truly cold; but at such a low price, I can buy another pair and still be FAR cheaper than the $275/pair I was paying previously - with better boots!
Oh, and as an aside, I wore a EU 41 in the (motorcycle name brand)'s and the 41 in these was a little less "tight" but still a perfect fit.

Nice boots for the $$
I've put about 800 miles on these boots and have been very impressed. They are comfortable enough to wear off the bike for a while and the subdued looks don't scream "biker" to everyone around you. The sizing seemed to run true for me. Not sure about the long-term longevity or the water resistance yet, but I'm digging them so far - especially for what they cost.

I know vented and waterproof is an oxymoron but these boots don't leak, period. Good fit, sizing is dead on. East to put on with side sippers and cool in the summer. I have worn them down into single digits and my feet started to get "cool" but they are not a winter boot, I expected such. If I was going to be out for weeks on end in sub freezing temps I would get something with less air flow but as a normal 4 season boot these do the trick, especially for the price.

Great boot at better price
Just because it was an option, I sorted my search for "summer riding boots" to display as "least to most expensive". These boots popped right up, and with the way they fit and feel, I still can't figure out why anybody would want (or need) to pay more. They are just great!

Great value for the buck
When I first received my Tourmaster boots I was very pleased with the looks and style. However when I tried them on they were a little loose in the footbed and also a little on the hard side for the soles of my feet. My wife bought some inexpensive memory foam insoles and this fixed both problems. By the way I wear a size 9 to 9 1/2 normally so I ordered a 43. They were a little stiff compared to my old Harley boots (four years old and counting of everyday use) but have adjusted to them and them to me. I have taken several trips with them so far and two trips were very wet and the boots stayed absolutely dry. I am happy with my purchase.

Good boot for the prices
Went to a local dealer and tried these on. The 12.5 seemed to fit OK but was a bit narrow. I ordered a 12.5 wide and they were still tight. Returned for a 13 (great return process). The 13's still seemed a bit narrow but after wearing them for a few days the feel much better.
