RST Paragon 2 Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Made the right choice.
Tidy looking boot, well put together,heal protection, toe, and shin looks like it would help in a tumble. Ankle has a piece of plastic on it so it's not as good as the rest. They hold your foot and ankle firmly but not uncomfortably. Tight going on although they have a elasticated gator at the back of the zip to make it easier. However I ware thick sock so I expect that. I thought they would take sometime to break in but no. First time on I went to a weekend rally, by the time I rode to the rally and started walking I had forgot I had new boots on. The waterproof lining does not come to the top of the boot but I don't expect to be wading in 12 inches of water. Can't comment on being waterproof as it haven't been raining. They are not big at the shin and I like that as I like to ware my trousers over my boots. All in all I am very please with these boots. If I remember to make a comment after heavy rain I will.
Disappointed in the durability
Really liked these boots however the top surface on the leather is starting to peel and the toes got scuffed after a misplaced foot on a concrete step. Such a shame as I otherwise really liked them. Fabulous service form you guys arranging a refund and credit to RST for accepting the warranty claim off a photo. Falling out of love with RST Weiss and other budget gear after a number of durability fails on recent purchases
Ticks all the boxes

Will be sending back when I get home!
I bought these boots in the middle of May in prep for a tour in Europe which I'm currently on. I used them maybe twice before we left to try and bed them in a bit. Since we have been here it has rained heavily 3 times and light a couple. All times my feet are soaked through. On examination of the boots the soles (on both boots!!) is coming away at the front....hence the location of the leak. Very disappointed as I have never had this happen before and thought with RST I was safe with the quality and brand. I now have to get back to UK (currently in Romania) and hope it doesn't rain again. These will be going straight back to Sportsbikeshop on my return under warranty - really disappointed to be honest.
Rugged and reliable.
The feel of the inner lining of the boot is ideal for the longer journeys in mind. After a long ride in the rain I can confirm that they hold up against the rain fantastically. Even riding in warmer conditions feels no more different than in the cooler weathers. I reccomend these boots 100%!
Excellent Boot. Get the next size up as they are snug. Really comfortable and supportive of the ankle but leaving you able to walk freely. Only downside. Black. A bit of colour here or there would make the boot attractive to the eye.Different colours would help people match to their bikes colours . But other than that Great Boot.
I bought these boots due to the good reviews and I wasn't disappointed. They are the quite tight round the legs but I m sure they'll soon loosen off. I'm sure when I start using them more often they'll be fine. I did get caught in rain and they held up fine. All in all a great purchase. I didn't score them 5 due to the tightness round the calf but this is minor and as said, I'm sure they'll loosen off with use.
Comfortable boots, good boots
New rider, bought these as my first pair of boots for my CBT then direct access course. CBT trainer said I'd struggle to use these with them being new etc. But they were fine, comfortable and fitted great. (ordered my normal size which is a UK 12) Not tested in the rain yet. First time ordering from SportsBikeShop, and will be returning. Like that they use DPD as it automatically goes to a pickup shop so I can collect straight after work. Thank you. Happy Customer
Comfortable well made boots
Boots are very comfortable to wear. Suitable for wearing with trouser legs over boots. Feel quite sturdy, but flexible enough to not impede riding. Very good value boots. Haven't used in rain yet, so can't give opinion about dryness. I'm very impressed so far.
A mixture of emotions!
To start with I'd like to say the customer service I have received has been rawrtastic. I say this because when I ordered these boots, in the additional comments I wondered to myself if they would draw a dinosaur on the package. Well I must say, I want not disappointed as Mac and Sam drew some marvellous examples of dinosaurs on the box. It completely made my day. My other half discovered this and she absolutely loved it. Which then she had shared the pictures on her Business page on multiple social media pages as we wanted to share the moment we had. A mixture of emotions I have chosen for this review as I was overjoyed with the customer service, and extremely pleased with the level of protection they gave me from the elements and when I unfortunately laid my bike on the floor after finding a bit of ice on the road :(. By no means is this a negative review because I cannot thank sportsbikeshop enough for their service and "out of this world" service. Fantastic bunch and will continually use and recommend to family and friends.
