Tour Master Response WP 2.0 Women's Boots
Bought these for a 1900 mile tour and knew we'd be getting some weather. Had rain gear on and cinched over the boot tops but it became clear pretty quickly that water got in anyway. Literally walked into the hotel lobby with the soles squishing and leaving a trail of water. Super comfy out of the box, needed no breaking in, and easy to ride in, but definitely an epic fail on the reason why I bought them in being marked as "waterproof".

Great and comfortable.
Road 110 miles the first day I wore them - started out a hot humid day and airflow was great - ended up pouring rain and got soaked cause had no rain gear so the boots filled with water but was I emptied them they were still comfy - no blisters and dried quickly.

These boots worked great on our motorcycle tour. they were comfortable, Waterproof and fit was great.
Bought these for may wife for a 1800 km motorcycle tour. She was pleased overall, but after three days of riding the sticthing that holds the laces together started to come out. Overall i would suggest these boots.

Great fit and value
This boot is lightweight and comfortable to walk around in. I was afraid they might pinch or be too stiff, but they fit fine right off the bat. I do believe they will save my heels, toes and ankles should the need arise.

Good but left sores
These boots are great and tough. I love that the toe has extra protection, which is nice for shifting.
However, these are definitely not boots to walk around in. I thought I would take a ride and have a walk and kept these on. After a couple of hours I started getting sores on the back of my heels. Keep in mind, this was after a couple of hours, not right away. So if you bring an extra pair of shoes you should be just fine!

Great fit, no durability
We ride adventure bikes, and I'm constantly on the lookout for a boot that is waterproof and comfortable both on the bike and off. I need something with decent traction, and good ankle flex, but I also want protection.
I thought these Tour Master boots would be perfect, and they sure acted like it through the first couple of months of riding. Although I usually wear an 8.5 boot, the 9 fit okay - a little long in the toe, but wide enough for my none-too-skinny feet. They were comfortable, supportive, and allowed very good feel for the brake and shifter.
Unfortunately, I started to notice the stitching that attached the velcro to the leather was coming undone on one boot, then the other side started unraveling. After one 600+ mile day, two of the fabric loop-style lace holders had ripped out. It's a good thing the velcro strap was able to hold things secure at the top of the boot, or I would have had to result to electrical tape to keep them on my feet until we got home.
Admittedly, I probably am harder on riding gear than the average female rider. I'm not Iron-Butt-tough, but we do put on some big miles, about 20% on gravel, the rest on back country roads. These boots lasted less than 2 months, but that was more than 5,000 miles worth of weekend riding, so they might last many riders a full season before having any issues.
I'm very careful with our gear, and these boots were no exception, after every ride, they were wiped down with a damp cloth and after a wet ride I wiped them down and then applied Nikwax, which has always worked well to keep our waterproof leather boots in good condition.
If you don't ride often, these boots are comfortable, give good support without reducing a rider's feel on the foot controls, and are easy to walk in. I would tentatively recommend them for those reasons, but I would not expect to get more than a season's worth of riding out of them before you begin to see some issues with stitching or lace retainer failures.
On the plus side, Revzilla was awesome when I contacted them about the problem. I now happily recommend them to all my riding friends as a store that stands behind the product they sell.

Comfy riding boots
Love the boots! My husband bought his a few months ago and I was happy to see that they also made them for women. They are very light, feel like walking around in sneakers but are rugged enough to stand the heat from the motorcycle pipes while riding. You won't be disappointed.
