I wear a 10 1/2 C, sometimes an 11 with an insert. Bought the "10 1/2" European 45. Length is fine but boots are way too wide. I want protection from lateral bending and torsion breaks. Not these. If I get a smaller size they'll be too short. Sending them back and will probably stay away from Apinestars assuming they run wide.

Plastic strap broke after 10 trips out, really cold feet if it's under 50 (I know these don't pretend to be winter boots, but an attempt would be appreciated), both pull up straps broke after 4 trips out, still really hard to get on and off with the lace system. Unknown protection factor, but with everything else I wouldn't trust them.

Nice looking motorcycle shoes, they fit good and work well on my bike but the hidden laces are terrible. It takes ten minutes to put them on correctly. Those steel rivets you see in the picture are just for looks, they lace up with some small hidden loops inside. It's a real shame because otherwise they're really nice. I wouldn't recommend buying them.

I have yet to ride with these but I wear them once in awhile. I went with a 9 I usually wear 9.5 The fit tight and I am sure they will loosen up after wearing them and they will feel great. Overall I am very happy with these boots for what they are. A stylist boot to wear anytime and also has a purpose when it comes to riding and protect your foot. Pros: Gret feel, look, and wearing around just walking is comfortable. Tread and grip are nice and shifting should be easy. I have only had these for a month so I do not know how long they will last. I am pretty hard on boots as I wear these even when I don't ride. Cons: the fit at the top of the boot is sort of loose around my ankle and there is no way to adjust this. I can see in any bad wreck this boot flying through the air off my foot. I can without to much difficulty pull the boot off my foot without unzipping or unbuckling it... If the top of the boot were adjustable or fit tighter around my ankle i would give 5 stars all day. I'm 5'9" 160 lbs wear 9.5 tennis shoes

I ride a Kawasaki Versys, adventure-tour style but really all on road. These boots are a lot of protection for the money. They are very stiff and the toe area is tall necessitating moving the shifter up, but that is an easy adjustment. I wear 12's in Rockport and Keene's and Danner's, 13's in Adidas and Nike. Went with the 12's. Toe is long but the toe box is somewhat narrow. I would have tried an 11.5 in a store, but kept the 12's. Figure on significant break in time to loosen them up a little, shifting feel is poor until broken in.

These shoes look and feel great. They are comfortable enough to wear all day without having your feet sweat while giving you all the protection you need on a bike. They really do look like normal sneakers and go great with street jeans/pants or riding pants. However, they feel a bit cheap and, after using them for about 10 months now, I can confirm the quality is very poor. The insole came out as did the stitching around the soles. There are literally holes/tears throughout, both where you might expect wear because of use and where you may not (I never had a hole in the middle on the outside of my shoe until now). Note, although I have used them walking around, I mostly just used them on the bike so they really haven't seen a lot of pavement. Overall, they are a good value, but quality should be noted. I guess for the price of some other shoes out there, you can just buy 2 of these to compensate for the fact they'll fall apart and look beat up within a year.
