Would absolutely buy these again!
I bought these last January just before a 2,800 mile adventure throughout the northeast and northcentral US. It was hot, but these were absolutely comfortable, whether riding or walking. Hit torrential rain over three days, feet stayed nicely dry! Most comfortable (did I say this already) boots I've EVER had.

Great pair of boots
I purchased these boots sight unseen and I had no one I could personally ask about these boots. I was looking for boots that were easy to get into and out of, yet were nice looking and waterproof. After reading a lot of the reviews about these boots and how they fit (everyone seemed to say that they fit well, leading me to believe that they were true to size), so I ordered the boots and ordered them in my normal size of 9. Upon arrival and trying on the size 9, I found them to be 'short' in length and narrow in width. I returned them and ordered a size 10. Returning the size 9 was no problem, no hassle, no questions other than the reason for returning. The size 10 arrived in a few days and fit really well. I like the construction, look and feel of the boots. Have not had a chance to ride in the rain as of yet, but have confidence that they will perform as advertised. Definitely would and will recommend these boots to anyone who will listen. Excellent service on the exchange also. Completely happy with my decision and the product(s) I have purchased from Cycle Gear.

Great Boots
Great rain boots at this price level. I've been caught in several storms lately, and these boots have kept my feet dry. Zippers are a little difficult to zip/unzip, but overall I give these boots an A+

PROS: Good Traction, Lightweight, Weather Resistant

Overall good boots..
I received the boots and the reviews were correct about the zipper being difficult to zip and the size running small. The reviews said you should order 1 to 1 ½ sizes larger. I have a wide foot 10 ½ EE and ordered a 12 which fit very good. The boots has two zippers on each boot and I could only get one side to zip. Thinking the boots ware too small and was planning to send them back but fortunately, I was planning to visit my daughter that weekend and found there was a Cycle Gear in her town. When I took the boots in to exchange, I found the employees were very helpful. They explained that the zipper will be tight with being made of material to help keep the boot waterproof. I was afraid of breaking the zipper because of how tight they were and the sales persons said don't worry because they have a 5 year warranty. I pulled both zippers up with much effort and the boots felt great. Each time I zipped the boots they became easier. I left the store with them on and they were very comfortable all day. I haven't tried them in the rain but the design looks very waterproof to me.

Can't beat the price
A nice, stylish leather boot. Easy access with zip up on both side of ankles. Comfortable wear with good traction (boots don't slip or slid on my highway peg).

Pro Tourer Boot need break-in period
I purchased a size 10 as I am 9.5 shoe size. Had a hard time trying to get them on. The flap on the inside front kept catching my foot where it bends.
I was eventually able to get them on with the use of shoe trees and the fit is fine. Boots are stiff and caused some problems with my shifter feel. I have worn these for about five months and they feel good. Soles still need some more wear on them. Zippers are high quality made- not plastic! Boots are easy on and off no scuffs on them considering road debris.

Great boots
I have these boots, bought on sale last year, and also own another pair of Ricky Racer style boots that I hardly ever wear.

The Bilt Pro Tourer is comfortable enough that I wear them to work when I ride and I'm fine in them all day. Since it's a under-the-pants design, it's not overly obnoxious looking in an office environment.

I love the dual zippers, this boot is easier on and off than tennis shoes. Haven't had any problems with zipper snag or anything like that.

I haven't tested the waterproofing since I live in the desert.
But when I wear these out, I'll buy another pair.

Waterproof, good for beginners
These are waterproof. The build quality is on the lower side but they work and that's all that matters.

Very comfortable
They fit perfectly! I love to wear them. They are cool enough in hot weather. I have not ridden in much rain with them yet but paired with boot covers, they will be perfect. Comfortable enough to walk in when stopped at events such as bike week and can wear them all day for walking.

Excellent boots
I really like wearing my Doc Martens but the soles do not prevent my feet from slipping when touching the road at stops etc. These boots ensure that when i put my feet down they aren't sliding anywhere. They fit really well, have wore them on week long riding trips and are easy to walk in after hours of riding. Got them on sale 50% and was an awesome deal. Love the double zippers as they don't bunch up around my skinny ankles! Plus these are way lighter than Docs and waterproof too.

I wear a size 11 in shoes and boots. Should I get an 11, or size up to a 12?
A shopper on Sep 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Get the size you normally wear in standard shoes.
How tall are they?
A C on Aug 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Approx 3-4 inches above the ankle. Also they seem to run on the large side but otherwise great boots. Stiff but easily broken in and great support and protection.
Are these slip resistant?
A shopper on May 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't know if there "certified" slip resistant, but they definitely do well under wet conditions, not on the pegs and walking in wet conditions. These are an excellent boot for the money and I would buy them again.
how tall is the heel?
A shopper on May 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Normal shoe height. Comfortable for riding and walking.
How are these for walking? Curious since I like to tour and walk at some of the more interesting stops.
Marion D H on Feb 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great if they fit right. The ones online probably won't.
what is the recommended care for my new boots?
