Very comfortable but watch your sizing!
For a casual rider looking for more protection than a basic riding shoe and off the bike comfort, this boot fits the bill.

This boot is amazingly comfortable. Its actually more comfortable than my day-to-day casual shoes. The best way i can describe the feel of the inside of the boot would be "cushioned spandex hugging your foot".

AVOID REVZILLA'S SIZE GUIDE FOR THIS PRODUCT!
I usually wear a size 11 US shoe. I used RevZilla's recommendation and ordered a 45 EU which way too big. I swapped them out for size 44 EU (which follows Alpinestars recommended size) and they fit much better. This was the size that I decided to keep, although after a little bit of break-in, I can't help but wonder if going down to a 43 EU would have been an even better fit. The 44 fits well side-to-side but there is about an inch of room at the toe. Ratcheting the ankle prevents sliding back and forth.This isn't enough of an issue to try out a new pair, but enough so that it's worth mentioning here.

Solid boot for a more casual rider
These are quality boots that are lightweight and surprisingly comfortable. I'll admit it's a bit tight at the ankle at first but after they break in it's fine. In regards to sizing, the chart said I should wear a size 47 (I wear roughly a size 12 in Nikes) but the 47s were way too big. I ended up with the size 46 which fit nicely.

I also spent some time walking around in these and most people didn't notice I was wearing motorcycle boots. They were comfortable but I wouldn't recommend wearing them a lot while not riding. The insole isn't that padded so after an hour or so they became uncomfortable to walk in.

Overall excellent boot for those wanting protection without a full-height boot
Comfortable boot on and off the bike. I've been wearing them almost daily for 3 months and durability seems good... no issues there.

I normally wear a 9.5 US and went with a size 43 (I think on the recommendation of another Revzilla review). The fit was definitely a little tight at first. So much so that I seriously considered sending them back for a 44. But I stuck with them and after a few hours in them they opened up and and I'm very happy with the fit now.

Air flow is definitely better than in a non-vented boot but I wouldn't say it flows TONS of air. I've been wearing them in temps down to 50 F, with dress socks underneath, at freeway speeds for a 40 minute commute and have had no problem with too cold toes. That said, in the summer heat I would have liked a bit more air flow. But in a boot with this much protection I don't think that's very likely.

Perfect Fit as expected
I am 9.5 US size and I ordered a 44 size. I need a wider toe so 44 size is very comfortable and fits well from the toe end.

Overall great boot!
This boot was comfortable out of the box and took very little to get used to on the bike. The height is perfect for around town/commute and I would even use as a dry weather touring boot. Great airflow and I feel the protection features would serve well in a crash. Only time will confirm durability, but they seem to be very well mad and designed.

fits a bit narrow but very comfortable if average width foot
I needed a vented boot and after trying on many other brands I went back to alpinestar. Not a cheap boot but if they last as well as my old Alpinestars the value is there. Easy to walk in, no breakin period, comfortable from the day I put them on.Even though I ride a fully faired bike just sticking my foot in the airflow provides a great cooling effect.

Very comfortable!
It is very difficult for me to find shoes or boots that fit. My feet are wide near the toes and my heel is narrow. I wear a size 10.5 in Mizuno running shoes, a size 44 in Asolo hiking boots and a size 44 or 45 in Shimano or Specialized road bike and mountain bike shoes. I bought the SMX 3 in size 45.

I previously had the SMX 1 boots which protected me well in a recent crash. I decided to upgrade to more protection with the SMX 3 boots. I bought the black version and it looks great. The side zipper is fantastic although it gets hung up on my kickstand sometimes when I lower the kickstand. The boots broke in within 300 miles and are very comfortable. I really want a pair of Dainese Dyno boots but they do not fit properly.

These boots are fairly easy to walk around in and do not look dorky.

Great Boot, but size it by Revz recommendation...
I made the mistake of ordering these by Alpinestars size recommendation...i wear a 9.5 US shoe for everything, ordered a size 42 EU as per AS and they fit fine heel to toe, but were "super tight" on the sides - even with "thin" socks...

I returned them for a 43 EU (Revz recommendation) and they fit perfect all around...

Save yourself the return shipping charge and order by Revzilla's recommendation...

Did i mention that is a super freaking GREAT boot!!

Great ventalation, durability
I bought my first pair of these at the beginning of the year and it was a great relief from my steel toed boots I had been riding with prior. I ended up wrecking, and these things took a beating like a champ but held together and I walked away without any foot injuries. As a result, I've now purchased a replacement pair since I liked them so much

Not too shabby
You definitely feel protected with these boots. If you are going to walk around for a day after riding I would suggest buying some gel inserts or something. After a couple hours you will start to feel the lack of comfort. The summer vented boots are also great. You can feel the air in the boot so your feet are cool.

Andre W on Jun 2, 2017
Looking for something safer to ride in than normal footwear can provide, but did not want to go to a full-on motorcycle boot. Hoping that the SMX-3 bridges that gap of being more protective while allowing more comfortable walking when off of the bike.

How durable is the ratchet mechanism? I've purchased a different brand in the past only to have the plastic ratchet strip break!
S A on Jan 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: So far it's holding up great. Don't see any apparent mechanical weakness.
Anyone have the black and white? I like the look but wonder if it shows dirt easily or is hard to clean.
Christopher L on Apr 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've had the perf smx3s for about 2 months now. They get dirt and scuffs during regular wear but it comes off with regular dish soap and a sponge. Just make sure you wash them after you ride. Although, that's what you should expect when you buy white gear.
I wear a size 10 in nikes, should i get a 43 or 44?
A shopper on May 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend following what the revzilla team suggest down at the bottom of the size charts from what they have tried on. I normally wear 11.5 in. most shoes and in boots I go with 11 but for these s-mx3's I got the 45's and they were a perfect fit. They fill a bit snug at first but once you have them in for a few min you won't want to take them off.
Are these boots tall enough to tuck in the bottom of leather pants such as the Alpinestar Missle?
Donald F on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These boots are too short at the back for leather riding pants to remain inside them after riding for a while. It is my only complaint with them. I would definitely suggest a taller version if you will full gear as I do.
Hi looking to buy these for my boyfriend. We live in NY and he rides from spring to fall, so temperatures vary from 30F to 100F. His feet do get really hot and sweaty, would he be better off with the vented or non-vented version?
Brianna H on Aug 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Depends on how tolerant he is of the cold. I have the vented and love them for 3 season riding. But at 40 and below now way, I would freeze. The vented definitely vent well. If he really rides down to 30 then he'll want an insulated boot, let alone unvented.
How do these perform for longer , touring rides? Or are they really better for commuting?
chris p on May 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I mostly commute with these but I have taken a few 4+ hour trips upstate with these. I have zero complaints with these, super comfortable and let's enough air in to keep my feet from sweating.
Hi guys this would be still confortable at 50f? Iam looking for a 4 season boot thanks
Rodrigo G on Dec 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes... at 50 degrees Fahrenheit this boots are still comfortable.... Anything below 50 and you might want to get the solid non perforated style... I have rode wirh them at 30f and it was a little cold.. With a extra pair pof socks they were perfect.. Also they run big... Im a U.S 9.5 in shoes and this boot was perfect at a size 8.0 US...
How does it hold up in the rain, could the water seep in?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's perforated, so yes, water will seep in when it rains. There's a non-perf version as well.
Is this boot tall enough to be able to tuck in the bottom of a leather pant like the Alpinestar Missle?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would say not. I tucked in my rather long textile pants but they still rode up above the boot.
Are these (smx-3 boots) tall enough to tuck in the bottom of leather pants? Such as the Alpinestar Missle pants...?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't have Missile pants, but overall they are a little too short to keep leather pants that end above the malleolus completely tucked in when you are on a sportbike.
