RST Roadster Boot - Brown
Customer Product Reviews
Really grippy and easy to walk in!
My fave bike shoes so far, can pull them on quickly as well with the zips on the side (which isn't always the case with some shoes). Surprisingly comfortable to walk in normally and don't feel clunky. The only thing I would say is because of the heel of the shoe I felt it getting caught on my foot rest while changing gears because they aren't flat. But thats an easy thing to fix once you know about it when riding.
QUALITY Retro Style Boots
The photos on the website don't do these boots any justice. I was over the moon when they arrived, wouldn't have expected any less from RST. First impressions visually they look great, rugged/ worn retro style which can be worn with many style of bikes. The boots reminded me of timberland boots, they look awesome with a pair of motorcycle jeans for that modern urban style much liked in the city... fit and comfort again great, nice padding around the ankle, firm but yet not restrictive. I'm a size 9 and still had enough room to wear thick socks. The only negative (which may only apply to what style bike you have) the boots are physically big and some riders may find it hard to place the boot under the clutch lever when changing gear. It might take some getting used to. Overall I am very happy with these boots which reflects in my rating, I don't think you will be able to get a similar style/quality boots for the price sports bike shop advertised.
Nice looking, comfortable boot
I have a pair of high length boots for long distance and touring. I bought these for riding around town to provide protection but not too cumbersome for walking around. They fit this bill excellently and my first trip it poured down and they also proved to be waterproof. Nice looking too IMO. I'm normally a 43 but went for 44 which is a good fit - 43 would probably have fitted but probably a bit too snug
Well made quality short boot
Well made quality short boot, looks the part, comfortable and can be worn around all day, great for the coffee and lunch ride. I really like the side zipper which make them easy to put on and take off. Stylish and practical. That good I bought 2 pairs, Black and Tan. Good price and great value for money. Oh and great service from the team at sportsbikeshop.
Small and snug
Just like good hiking boots they take some breaking in before becoming extremely comfortable. They are also extremely small. I'm usually between 7.5 and 8, but I followed other reviewers' advice and went up to 9. Any smaller and they wouldn't have fit. I was caught in a downpour and my socks had a line of wetness around the same line as the stitching on the side. There's a waterproof seal that goes up the sides of what would be the tongue, however that stops short of the top and the tongue then becomes an actual, erm, tongue. It feels like there's lots of protection around the ankles and toes without being a hindrance. I ride a GS and the reinforced gear change strap is in just the right position. After a week I now have a little white dot in the middle of the strap. There's also a matching strap on the right boot, so they match.
Couldnt be happier with my purchase, they feel like a normal boot instead offering you more than just comfort also the protection aspect, i walk all day in these boots with no issue and finding neutral etc and flicking through the gears is easy with these boots, rst have got it right on the money with this product, if you do order get a size up from your normal shoe
Good quality boot, fits well, comfy on long trips and also walking around in. This was my second pair, the first fell apart on the first ride out, appeared that the sole hadn't been glued at all, time will tell if it's a manufacturer fault or just a one off, current ones seem to be holding up well..
Ordered Tan size 44 but was later emailed to say they were out of stock. A quick call to SBS secured a pair in black and a discount for my inconvenience. Really chuffed, fit is great and very comfortable on and off the bike. Quality boots and great service, if you're looking for this type of boot the RST Roadster is highly recommend. Shout out and big thanks to Mark.
