Alpinestars Web Gore-Tex Boots
Forget Your Feet
I bought these boots primarily to wear with wool socks in cold weather. When riding I never think about my feet. These are the Goldilocks boots...just right.
I wear a size 14 shoe, and the size 49 fits me like they were custom molded. My feet aren't hot or cold. They aren't squeezed or flopping around. The boots are a breeze to get on and off. They are very comfortable to walk around in. They are water tight. I get compliments on how they look. Highly recommended.

Awesome Commuter Boot
I have worn this book almost everyday for the past 6 months. Amazing build quality, fit and protection. I have worn them through light water and they have stayed dry. Cold weather is no problem so far with the boots. Would highly recommend these boots for commuting or light touring.
I clean and rub down the boots with honey leather about once per month and I suspect that these boots will last me over a year easily.

Great boots !!!
I'm a 9.5 shoe guy. Ordered a 43 and fit perfect ! Probably fit better if they have a 43.5. I'm a D width and they fit good
I would recommend wear then to walk around first before riding in them IF, just my opinion! you ride a sports bike. I ride a ninja 300 and also a 1199 panigale and will be getting a street triple soon. I'm sure on the street triple I d have no problems but on the ninja. I was having such a hard time shifting and feeling my foot. But after a couple days. They felt perfect. So if they feel weird at first. They are fine. Of course, compare to race boots, the feedback isn't as great but I assume these are made to last a lot longer than race boots
So far, I m loving them. Kept my feet nice and warm on 38 degree day riding. Haven't had a chance to test out the waterproofing but they are goretex and close out price. can't beat that

Great boots so far
I hate giving reviews on gear after only using it for a few weeks, especially when I haven't really put it through the paces (specifically, rain), yet. So far, though, these boots are great. Pretty comfortable overall. They only feel make me feel like I'm part-cyborg walking in them, which seems to be improving a bit each day. When I first tried them on, I had concerns about getting to the shifter on my bike, but there is enough wiggle room in the calf of the boots in addition to the articulation on the front to allow relatively easy operation. Again, haven't rain-tested these yet, but the nice thing about Gore-tex is that it's kind of an insurance policy for rain gear so I'm not too concerned about that.
My only gripe with these is the stitching where the Gore-tex liner meets the upper part of the boot on the inside is done pretty poorly. I have to wear tall socks or that connection point rubs pretty badly on both legs.
For the price-point, especially getting these on clearance, I'm not sure there is a better bang for the buck for this type of boot. And as always, Revzilla is a pleasure to work with.

Followed the Revzilla fitting advice and these boots fit perfectly. Pretty easy to break in, they feel stout and well made. Not a great fan of velcro, but the closure system on these, works well and hasn't come loose or got caught on the bike yet. Probably too warm to be worn in the heat of summer, but good for the other three seasons. Very comfortable on and off the bike. And I think good value for money.

Good Boot at a Good Price
I have had these boots for about 3 weeks, I haven't tested them in rain but I am sure they will do just fine. I bought them on the recommendation of a friend that already has this boot and he was spot on with comfort and fit, they are like walking in a pair of tennis shoes.

Excellent boot, not convinced it will be toasty in winter
Bought these boots three days before a two-week, 3,000 mile road trip. Wore them around the house for a couple of days, and they were comfortable from the get-go, and by the third day they were genuinely comfortable. Wore them for 12 hours per day on average!
We got soaked on one day of our ride, and my feet stayed dry, which is enough for me. However, that day makes me think thermal socks might be a good idea for any sort of serious cold weather riding.
Our hottest day was mid-80s and the boots were fine for that. The exhaust on my Triumph Sprint made the heel of my right boot uncomfortably hot if I didn't remember to keep my foot away from the bike, though. Probably more a fault of the bike than the boot.
My feet run a bit wide and these boots were great for that. I normally wear an 11 and based on reviews here, bought size 46 boots and don't regret that decision at all.
For the price these are a great boot and would buy them again.

Good replacement boots
I haven't had the boots long enough to test their waterproof-ness, but I trust goretex. They look as expected and considering that they were on clearance, for the price paid they are outstanding. I wear 9-9 1/2 on shoes, I usually buy 9 1/2 - 10 boots to fit my wide foot, these were 9 and they fit a bit on the tight side, requiring a couple of days to break in. Now they feel comfortable for a day long ride. I hope they will last for a few years while keep being waterproof
