Alpinestars Web Gore-Tex Boots
Great boot. Ordered a size 43 which is my normal size and correct by Alpinstar size chart. Had to send them back too narrow. Ordered size 44 which was recommended size on revzila chart. They fit pretty good just a little long, but broke in in one ride, now very comfy.
Don't know about waterproof, fortunately no rain yet,

Great boot, feet still dry
This is my first proper riding boot, so not much to compare to, but as my first boot I would say this one is great. I have worn many a regular boot in the Marines so I have worn bad boots in general and this one is not bad.
Supper comfortable, keeps your feet dry ( I have riding in the rain already), as well as works great in thew cold down to about 35* with one pair of socks on.
Followed Zillas size recommendation vice AlpineStars and got a 44 for my size 10 foot. Perfect fit.

Comfortable, breathes and keeps you dry
I found the boots a little narrow and had to step up a size which was still OK because they are not particularly long in the toe. They fit small all around but particularly at the ankle which rubs. Fortunately the leather does break in (still love leather, my last plastic Alpinestars never did break in) and they fit very well after a few days riding. I live in South Florida and these boots like all similar ones are hot on typical dry days but you do get enough ventilation through the Goretex to wick your feet dry.
In the rain they are amazing. You get dry ventilation and the soles stick like bubble gum.

Really nice boot
After 8 years, it was time to retire my A Stars Ridge boots. I was looking at a race type boot, but after realizing that i have never raced, i needed an all purpose, all weather boot. The Web boot is great. Taller than the Ridge with better shin protection, Gore Tex liner so they breathe better and have better wet weather performance and they are not a bulky as the Ridge. And at $199 on closeout, this boot is unbeatable. I have a wide foot and can't fit into a Sidi or Dianese boot comfortably. Also, I went up to a size 46 in the Web from a size 45 in my old Ridge boots and they fit great. They may not be the best boot to ride around the world in like in "Long Way Round", but for another 8+ years of commuting and touring, they're great.

As comfortable as they say
The other reviewers are correct, these have to be the most comfortable pair of touring boots I've owned. Haven't been in a drenching rain yet, but gor-tex liners have never failed me before, also I actually find these boots breathable enough on warm to hot days. Ive also ridden in temps around 35 degrees and they are rather toasty with a thick pair of socks. The zipper is difficult to use at first, and i often left it mostly unzipped until they started to break in, but after about a dozen rides, i find the zippers to function well (a little zipper lube doesn't hurt) The Velcro is massive and to get them under jeans you really have to cinch them down, but shouldn't be a problem under normal motorcycle pants. Also I like the basic look of these boots since i ride a sport tourer as well as a cruiser.

The boots were on sale (close out) and I couldn't pass up the deal. I wear a size 10.5 and had I gone by the Alpine Stars sizing guide I would have gotten the right size the first time. However Revzilla had their own recommended sizing chart so I went with theirs instead. Boots were a little too small so I sent them back for the next size up. As usual, Revzilla's return policy was great and I had the correct pair within a week.
The boots are very comfortable and when I ride to work I have no problem leaving them on all day. I haven't had the opportunity to test their waterproof ability yet, but I can highly recommend them for comfort and protection.

Great bang for the buck
Very pleased with these boots
The soles are a bit stiffer than my previous boots but I don't wear them when I'm not riding.anyway.
They were a bit stiff at the beginning but the're becoming more comfortable as I wear them.
Fit is excellent. I wear size 11US and the euro size 45 is perfect.
I was supprised to see that the zipper only goes half way up the boot. The upper half is only the velcro closure. This is not a big deal though. They close very well.
As usual Revzilla's shipping was fast

Good boot, reasonable price
The toe area by the shifter is a little thicker than my old boots. Not a bad thing really, but something to be aware of. Been in cold...30 degrees this morning and was warm and dry for my 45 minute commute. I wear a 8.5 shoe, 9 in running shoes and these fit perfect. Did an all day ride on Saturday and it was in the low 40's and raining most of the day. Warm and dry all day. There is no air flow, which is good in a rain boot I suppose. Good boot and best deal of any boot available that has Gore-Tex. From here, If you want better I would go with a Sidi Canyon or On Road boot.
