Awesome boot! SIDI FTW!
I bought this boot 4 years and have put approximately 45000 miles on it. I ride in all 4 seasons, rain snow summer, u name it. Mostly street but I had the luxury of testing it out while sand duning on ATV's at pissmo.
FIRST and FOREMOST they are comfortable! I commute in these, and have gotten to a point of laziness that i just wear these boots at work from time to time. They are perfectly fine wearing for 12 hours, unlike what the video reviews mention about it being 8 hours tops. Maybe it needs to fully break in?
I love the fact that I can wear them under my jeans if need to, but for the majority of my rides, i wear my riding gear under the boots.
They're easy to get in and get out of as well. They're also pretty waterproof - i havent had a wet foot yet! They're also warm... there was only one occasion that it was freezing, but the ambient temperature that day was 29 degrees F. During summer days, they can get a little toasty but i've ridden through 108 degree weather - my feet at that point were the least of my concerns. The short several days i had to test em while on an ATV at Pismo beach going up and down sand dunes was a blast. I had my gear tucked into the boot, and i toppled over into the sand a bunch. Sure enough sand got into everything in my gear, but my boots were clear! So if i ever decided to offroad in Dakar... mmmeyeaaaah :)
Right now, they're pretty scuffed up, and the extra leather on the toeshifter is starting to get unstitched. Pretty good for 45K miles of abuse tho! My other joe rocket boots had only maybe 6K miles and it was falling apart.
It's a very well made quality product, i love em to death. I would buy another pair but i think this one will still last me another 45K. I am definitely a SIDI convert now.

A great all-rounder
I found these boots to be perfect all-rounder. Most of my riding now is about 80% flat top and 20% off-road,so I didn't want the full adventure type boot. These boots are easy to get in and out of, with the velcro fasteners which hold nice and tight. They fit well under your jeans or touring pants or with your jeans tucked in.
After an initial wearing in period they have become more comfortable and are easy to walk in.
Yes I' m happy with these boots.

Great boot that fits my fat feet and allows a good range of adjustment to accommodate different socks.
I've been looking for a good, waterproof boot for a long time but am very hard to fit so I didn't want to try buying on line. I stopped at the Revzilla store on my annual trip from SW FL to central PA.
Staff at the store were absolutely fantastic in trying to meet my needs - wide foot bed, no zippers, waterproof, no laces, protection and adjustability. After trying on about a dozen boots these met all those requirements.
Boots fit my fat feet, the velcro closure system provides a tight fit whether wearing dress socks or Gerbing heated ones. My heated insoles fit with no problems. Feet stayed dry through light and moderate rain on my ride home but I haven't ridden in a FL thunderstorm yet although I expect to stay dry when I do.
The only downside to the boots is that the toe box is large and the soles are a pretty heavy lug. The large to box took some getting used to for positive up-shifts on my Goldwing. A little concentration and some practice eliminated the shifting problem. The lug sole also took some getting used to when moving around on the pegs and walking, but both situations will be taken care of with further use.
All in all I'm extremely happy with these boot and can't say enough about the help (and patience) of the Revzilla staff in setting me up.
A word of caution if you visit the store - it can be hazardous to your bank balance because there are so many good things to buy.

Very comfortable and stylish boots
I use the boots on my 40 mile round trip commute and when riding for fun. Easy on and off. Very comfortable.

These are great all around riding boots
I took these boots on a multi-week business trip to Germany where I managed to keep a weekend open for some riding. Because I had limited packing space, I wore these boots on several flights, and walked through several airports wearing them. I was afraid that I'd end up with sore feet and maybe even blisters. I shouldn't have worried. The boots fit well, and they walk and wear almost as well as they ride.
And, of course, they were great on the ride, too. I rented a Suzuki GSX650 and had a great time. With these boots shifting and braking was a breeze. The leather molded to my feet well (perhaps because of all the airport walking?) and allowed easy and confident movement on the pegs, shifter and brake pedal. I highly recommend them.

Comfortable to wear from the start.
A good looking boot that's easy to get on and off. Boot is high enough on the calf to compensate for pant leg raise while setting on the bike. A boot also good for off bike activities.

I like them
Yea, they are really good boots. They offer a lot of protection while not looking like something from the Jetsons. They are comfortable: the velcro allowing for lots of adjustments, and the sole is well lugged and doesn't slip. I wish the shin protection was a genuine hard part, but nothing is perfect.
