These are great boots with a retro style. They are easy to break-in and should weather well over time. The sole on the boot gives you a sure feeling foundation to stand on when you come to a stop on your bike. I commute to work on my bike and stand all day for my job. I have had no issues with foot discomfort after standing in these boots for nearly eight hours. I cannot say that about other motorcycle boots that I own. Overall, I appreciate the protection and style these boots afford me, and I look forward to wearing them for many rides to come.
