Liking the lighter pair, would look good with a pair of Kevlar jeans and one of Alpinestars retro jackets.

Any idea on fit?

Now ordered, thanks op

Thanks. ordered the black ones.

They look similar to my hiking boots! Should I bother?

Don’t need- bought the black one

I wouldn't, these aren't going to offer much protection if you come off a bike at any speed

With all due respect, I think you are missing the point.

When any of us get on a motorcycle we take risk in what protection we have, a helmet that meets British safety standards is the only compulsory requirement.

Whether you choose to go to the local shops armoured up to the hilt or not is entirely your choice and risk. Personally I very rarely venture out in anything less than at least kevlar jeans, gloves, jacket and helmet. On the rare occasions I have taken that risk I have worn regular jeans and ankle based trainers.

These are lightweight, none waterproof casual ankle boots designed for motorcycle use, they are designed to offer better protection than normal shoes or trainers due to the facts already bulletpointed in the opening post.

I bought a pair for casual riding, IXS are a decent manufacturer and it is a good saving at RRP, but if you disagree that's fine, just wanted to clear up a few facts.

Good point and will encourage people to move towards better protection rather than using their ordinary trainers.I have bought a pair for me and my son hopefully he will wear these , be better that his suede boots he rides to work wearing

Sorry only just noticed this post, if anything they come up a little on the large side depending on thickness of socks. Tried them on instore yesterday, I am usually a size 8 but have had some footwear come up small and had to opt for 8.5 or 9. In general though I find most motorcycle footwear to be on the generous side and not had to order anything above my normal shoe size.

For hiking, no. No flex in the sole. Designed, surprisingly for motorcycle use.

RE comments on safety.

The best way to stay safe is to stay at home, in bed and shut yourself off to the world.

I wear full leathers, but I've just ordered these because I have a occasional run out that doesn't involve riding like Rossi, just a bimble around the coast with the lads from work no matter what they ride. In the summer full leathers are a pita, as per my previous comment, pair these with a decent pair Kevlar jeans, retro leather Alpinestars jacket, leather gloves and full face helmet I feel that would be appropriate for that ride.......besides my classic FJ1200 will protect me, built like a tank it is

Bought a pair, very comfortable, worth the £29.99, would not say they scream quality for the RRP, but perfect for the price. The tongue inside is webbed rather than loose if that makes sense, so offers some weather protection, sole is rigid, good grip.

Most motorcycle gear is overpriced, these are totally on the money for a casual boot in my opinion. Although not had a chance to road test them yet.

The lacing is the only criticism, that is mainly because they come with the crap laces as shown in the first post in this thread. I have found this picture on FC Moto with round laces which look far neater, and of which I will be changing my pair to.

Not so keen on the light grey ones personally, even after seeing them instore, but that is all down to preference.

I’m in two minds, if I do purchase should I get size up or are good fitting?

As said, in my own experience I am a Size 8 and they are very roomy, I am on the slightly wider side of average foot meaning certain size 8 shoes and boots that are narrow fronted I have had problems whereby I have needed 8.5 or even 9's I found the 8's in my experience to be more like an 8.5.

Thank you I’m going for 8

Not bought any yet, but anywhere that sells round laces, Trespass, Mountain Warehouse, Blacks, Decathlon, Sports Direct, Clarks, Schuh, Deichmann, Pavers, your local market, your local independent shoe shop, eBay, Amazon to name a few!

Personally think that 3-5mm waxed round cotton laces would be a good choice of around 120-140cm (size 8-9, 42-43 EU), or tieless lace systems for convenience.

Tried mine today, really comfortable, only did local riding and it has been dry so nothing too taxing, perfectly fine at 30-50ish mph, then they start getting a little drafty.

I think for dual carriage and motorway use of 60mph+ you would start feeling the cold in them particularly in the winter months, but there again I did not buy them for heavy commutes or cold season use.

Hope they are a good fit, what laces did you go for? Hope you are intending to use a waterproof spray for suede/leather.
