Richa Blade Waterproof Boot - Black / Fluo Yellow
Customer Product Reviews
Quality waterproof armoured boot
I normally wear a size 11 but have these in a size 12 wearing normal socks. Been wearing these in 25oC and 10oC without issue. No sweaty feet. Ridden in pouring rain and water hasn't soaked through. However, your jeans are designed to go into the boot (instead of over) which means you can get water inside them. The small pull on the zip has come off after 1 month but the zip itself is fine.
A very good heavy duty solid made pair of boots that look great. However, I wear an 11 bought a 12 and still couldn't walk in them even getting them on was very very difficult. So sadly had to return them but sportsbike shop are great with no quibble free return.
Value for money
I didn't want to spend loads, so I managed my expectations when these arrived. That said, I opened the box and immediately saw a good quality product. Great finish, quality zip and Velcro, great protection across heal, shin and toe. I couldn't ask for much more. Went a size up, based on other reviews and they definitely need breaking in. I have struggled with feeling the gear lever, but think this will get better as I break them in. I'd recommend them as good value boots, for those that don't want to spend the earth.
First time buying boots like these, decided to opt for the Richa because of the value they were bringing to the table and also being waterproof. Worn them around the house for a few minutes in some days, they felt a bit rigid but did loosen up with minor wear. Have gone out with them, happened to rain too... Completely dry and really safe. Was afraid I would lose some mobility on the bike but didn't really lose anything, just the added bulk from having these boots up near the knee. Happy with the purchase, they are really solid.

For the price a very good motorbike boot! Initially felt abit bulky and clumsy when using the gear lever especially on my sport bike but no so much on my super motto, however after leaving some weight on the toe of the boot overnight and some walking around the house in them they soon felt spot on, My sidi boots I had previously cost more than twice the price but were only ever so slightly more comfortable. I would highly recommend these boots!!
