I got tired of riding with full mx boots all the time, so I wanted something that could pass for regular shoes and be comfortable. Overall I'm happy with my purchase, they are extremely comfortable and don't look like motorcycle shoes/boots. They did cheap out in a few places like the reflective logo on the back of the shoes, mine fell out after 2 rides. Also the black line on the sides comes off quickly. However I feel like they did not skimp on the areas that actually matter and I do feel they will do a good job in the event of a crash. Depending on how long they last I would buy again.
They're alright. Cheap though, literally falling apart out of the box. The Rubber logo on the heel came off. Also, the black line on the white sole rubs off. It almost looks like it was drawn on with a dry-erase marker.
Oh and they squeak almost as bad as Spongebobs' boots. They do seem solid though. I got them to protect my ankles if I ever crash, and I guess they make me feel protected. They look and feel more like boots when you see and try them. The pics online made them seem like padded sneakers. They are boots. For about $100 bucks, they're not bad.
