I Love these boots! Very sturdy, Very comfortable, its nice to feel the breeze on my feet as I ride. I have only ridden with them in cooler weather so far and the airflow is nice without my feet getting cold. I was Really glad to have them on yesterday when I dropped my bike in a slow u turn, following someone to close and they stopped before I expected so I had to maneuver around and at non speed, my bike was to heavy and I went down in slow motion. I'm a new rider and learned my lesson but I was very glad I had these boots on because my leg was trapped under my bike. I have weak ankles from tearing tendons in my younger years an I feel strongly that these boots saved me from injury already.
