PRO: They look awesome. bought them for the hinged ankle. Sole is strong and provides comfortable surface to stand on / good contact with pegs. CONS: Plastic shell is thin, and too flexible. Not much padding on ankle and leg, causing pinch points from buckles, but is not unbearable. Toe box is quite large, makes for difficult up shift. Overpriced. OVERVIEW: This is a low end boot with with a hinge. It looks awesome, but did not reach my expectations on comfort and durability. I feel this boot should be in the $250 price range. The ratchet buckle was a innovative idea, but is a pain and needs to go.
