Wow, I'm more than happy with these boots. I was in the middle of a 2,000+ mile ride when the soles of my old boots decided to fall off. Really. My friend whom I had ridden out to visit and ride with had a pair of these boots. Tried his boots on and they were perfect. So I got a chance to ride a few days, about 400 miles around Albuquerque and the worked and felt fine. With the side zipper they are easy to get on and off.
They are fairly plane, just what I like. They come up high enough on my calf that I'm protected from the exhaust (something my old boots did not do). I was worried they may have to be broken in but felt good from the start.
I would highly recommend these to anyone who needs motorcycle boots.
