These are comfortable straight out of the box although they did take a few days of breaking in to get to feel like they were “my boots”. The supplied insole is actually pretty good with a gel insert in the heel, I didn’t fell the need to upgrade them.

Needed to go a half size higher than I normally wear and that feels pretty good.

The traction is brilliant with the rubber tread and the way it wraps round the inside at the ball of the foot was great for scooting, way better than the old slippy burton Motos these replace. Top marks for the sole!

The trad lacing is, well… trad lacing, but top marks for the hooks which allow a double wrap of the lace or to cross lace which does away with the need for any mad knots they even lock in well without doubling up and go a whole day without the need to re tie.

The inner lace harness is a bit fiddly and if you take your liners out to dry them it’s a pain.

I do feel a small amount of heel lift when walking in these but it doesn’t bother me and I can’t feel it when riding and actually I only notice it if I’m thinking “can I feel some heel lift?”.

A couple of negatives, both on the liner strap. Not convinced on the quality control as the Velcro strap on the right boot came free of the stitching at the end on day one as it wasn’t overlapped enough, I just stitched this back myself as couldn’t be bothered with the fuss of sending them back as everything else seems fine. After about ten days riding though the bedding in stretching of the liner and strap means that the Velcro fastening doesn’t line up any more so it’s not as secure as it was.

I haven’t had these long enough to say how durable they will be but so far, I’m pretty pleased and would recommend them for the price.
