Alpinestars Scout WP Boots
Quality do everything boot.
This is an excellent value for an industrial grade boot. Your foot feels safe and well protected by the leather and plastic reinforcements. I have worn them in cold pooring down rain here in Seattle and my feet are always warm and dry. My only complaint is the lack of traction on slippery surfaces such as metal plates in the road or even wet blacktop if you don't lay your foot down flat. Overall great boot for the cost.

I really like these boots. Lightweight, sleek, subdued….not a bunch of graphics. They seem purpose built for my style of riding 70/30 - street /dirt, dual sporting. The buckles are fine with a great deal of adjustment. They are true to fit. I have big dogs (13W) and these are perfect. I only have a few hundred miles on them, but in rain, they were fully WP. This summer, I may feel differently when the local temps approach 100f. For a great review, I’m supposed to point out flaws and shortcomings. Try as I might, I can’t think of any.

Nice boot for the money
I've had these a year now and worn them in all seasons. They are comfortable and rugged. They are superb in the rain, snow and cold. Great protection off-road. A little warm in the summer, but not a deal-breaker. I did have to get a longer shift lever on my KLR to accommodate the sort of boxy toe, but I needed that anyway since I wear a 13/47. It's a plain-Jane boot, but I like the lack of graphics. One thing-- It would be nice to have a metal toe cap to really bind the sole with the last at the toe--I have a little separation there. But I'm hard on the boot and is an easy fix.

First Boot for Adventure Riding
This is my first "Adventure Riding" Boot and I was looking for protection without breaking the bank. Most of my riding is on the street where my other boots take care of my feet quite well. This boot provides good protection from trail debris, the wet and the cold. On my last ride we started out in dusty conditions, then alternated between rain, sleet and snow and finished in driving rain. The boots performed great. Still breaking in after about 500 miles of riding, but are already comfortable to walk around in. I did have to adjust the shifter on my Tenere so I could get my toe under the shifter.

Great Fall to Spring Boot
Bought the Scout mainly for fall to spring commuting in the rainy Pacific Northwest and occasional Adv/dual sport riding. It works fine, as advertised. The boots hold up great and provide protection to the elements. I've ridden thru pouring rain to sub-freezing weather, with thick wool socks of course, without much trouble.
The soles are stiff and tough with very aggressive pattern. They provide a great degree of protection and comfort while standing on peg. The downside of that is less than ideal wet traction - I almost slipped over painted parking lines in a parking garage while sitting on the bike, backing it into a parking stall.
Overall, I am very happy with the purchase. It's a no-frill "budget" boots that offer every you need in adv boot and nothing more.

The boot is comfortable and well built w/ thick leather.
I had about 1400 miles in the boots when I noticed that the sole on 1 boot was starting to separate. I called Revzilla and they gave me Alpinestars product warranty phone number. I called Alpinestars who had me send a photo of the problem.
They had me send the boots back, and repaired the split one and put toe caps on both. Alpinestars and Revzill are both great companies to do business with.

Bought these based on the strength of the reviews and previous experience with Alpinestars boots - regret the purchase and should have returned them...lesson learned.
Points for protection and style - my major gripe is adjusting the gearshift lever to accommodate the toe height for my weekend rides, then move it back on Sunday night for the work commute in street shoes. A small annoyance, yes, but still an annoyance. Otherwise it's missed shifts and a left foot stuck between foot pegs and shift lever on occasion.
They're hot, stinking hot but feel absolutely bulletproof.
In short - I'll put these in storage until fall and buy something else for summer.

Great Looking Boot
Bought this for a long trip and was happy with the overall comfort. I encountered a few 90-100degree days and the boot was surprisingly fine to wear as long as I was moving. The second I got off the bike my feet would start to sweat. So for a waterproof boot these breath pretty good. On cooler days these are great - I can walk around off the bike with these boots - unlike MX boots I've owned in the past. Mostly used for gravel road and jeep road riding with a heavy Triumph Scrambler -Ankle protection is great. I recommend these boots!
