Alpinestars Scout WP Boots
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!

I bought these for dual sport riding, but can see they could be easily used across a variety of bikes and riding conditions (touring, sport, etc.). In a nutshell the Scout's have great styling, great functionality, they are comfortable and are a great value at a relatively fair price. I had read they run a bit large so I did in fact order a size smaller and they fit perfect. The look is understated, functional, classic and clean. Jeans fit over these easily and they look good with jeans. You can walk ok with them, although the boots do lean just a slight bit forward. I like the fact that these boots offer a lot of protection and that all of the plastic protection pieces are embedded behind the leather vs. having shiny plastic attached all over the place. The logos are embossed and minimized, so no giant white plastic loud logos everywhere. The clasps and buckles are easy to use and secure well. I have tried several other boots that are twice the price...at the end of the day I simply like these Scout's the best and they meet my needs very well.

Good boots at a good price
I bought the boots for dual sport back country riding. You never know if it is going to be wet or dry, but these boots will help you all the way. Took a few rides to break in and get the buckles just right, but after that they were solid. Good feel through the boots for shifter and brakes. A little warm but understandable because they are waterproof. A great starter boot at a good price.

Very good boots!
Not much to say other than these are a great boot for a great price. I have wide feet at the ball of my feet and a narrow heal. They fit me great and are very comfortable. The were perfect for my needs as an all around boot!!

I like the height of the scout wp boot, thick leather boot.
I just bought the alpine scout wp boots, so I haven't ridden with them on the bike yet. It is a substantial boot, thick leather, should protect foot, ankle, and shin, but feels comfortable to wear. It is 14" tall, from floor to top of boot, kind of stiff, hopefully will break in quickly. My concern will be shifting the bike. I also purchased a pair of tourmaster solution wp air boots for hot temps, these are super comfortable boots, right at 11" tall. Any comments out there about shifting the transmission with the scout boots, I ride a 1800 Goldwing. Always impressed with Revzilla, good to see product reviews by Anthony and all the customers reviews.

Best entry level adventure boots I could find
I recently purchased this boots looking for waterproofness and a bit more protection. This is only my second pair of motorcycle shoes, the first being a more street/casual orientated model.
Very comfortable and they fit much better than the Garne boots that I tried, the range of adjustment seems much larger and can hold a narrower feet and buckles lock into place much more securely.
Easy to put on and take off (quicker than lace-ups) and they are definitely waterproof.
Good quality leather, about 2000km on them and not a scratch, unlike the TCX I got before that got scuffed badly very quickly.
Can get a bit warm and on the stiffer side, it took a couple of days of getting use to shifting gears.
Hard to fit under jeans, but they fit perfect (and look awesome) under my Klim Overland pants.
