These boots are amazing. Don't know how much simpler i can get. The speed lacing system is amazing, so much better than the traditional lacing system. Warm as hell, haven't ridden in extremely cold weather, but down to 0 degrees F and my feet were still warm. Good fit. The base of the shoe grips very well, just a little extra that helps walking up to that rail or in the parking lot. Definitely a 5/5.
