Richa Zenith Waterproof Boots - Black
Customer Product Reviews
At the age of 50 I've decided to learn how to ride a motorbike. Not knowing anything about the clothes I picked these due to priceand style. I wanted a plain black boot. I thought entry level. They are comfortable and not restrictive. The zip is sturdy and the fold over Velcro strip adds to the waterproof seal. I have given them four stars as these are my first ever pair.
First fast delivery and well packaged. I opted for a size up as per other reviews, though a little big when on, leaving room for thick socks, I think I would have had trouble getting my normal size on. Overall a good solid boot, comfortable and warm. With a secure zip and Velcro closure.
Had a pair of these boots about 3 year's ago, wore the left boot out on gear leaver ( should have changed the rubber) . So impressed by their performance had to buy another pair. Warm and dry never let the water in. Like other reviews they are a little tight but apart from that a great boot.
Used to be good
I have used these boots since I first started riding. At first because they were cheap, and then because they were cheap but still did the job every other boot does. This latest pair though. The sizing has got even smaller and the zip on one of the boots went after a month. I used to get these for a year and a half at a time- maybe it's a batch issue or a new manufacturer or something, but these aren't the boots they used to be.
Irish Weather soggy feet
Bought through desperation as old boots began letting in rain,I read other reviews and took advice to go a size bigger and glad I did although it took a little re-adjusting my foot placing on pegs. Very comfortable boot,rigid to begin with but broke in very quickly,very snug around ankles so wont go around my bike trousers so getting used to them going over boots. I have only been in a few heavy showers with them on and feet bone dry, no torrential downpours experienced yet. For the price and quality of the boot I'd highly recommend.
Very comfortable, very waterproof
Very good quality, stayed dry in Irish rain so very waterproof, went size up as per other reviews which is def needed, these fit very well but they are a snug fit width wise although I did manage thermal socks inside them comfortably.
People said these are a slightly tight fit so i ordered a larger size, somewhere between my shoe size and walking boot size. They fit but are a little large, fine for on the bike but probably wouldnt want to walk round in them for miles (may be ok with thicker socks). Kept feet dry the other day when we had to stop to put on extra waterproofs !. Ordered pair for wife as well and there the same and fine.
Only worn them a couple of times so far but they do make a big difference to the ride comfort after you get used to having them on.(missed the gear change and rear brake to start with as I am use to wearing softer boots) Cant say if they are waterproof as I don't tend to ride in the wet but they are certainly comfortable and sturdy. had to order next size up as they are quite tight fitting.
Comfortable, waterproof, protective and cheap
If you want a minimalist look look (like me) with a boot that is waterproof, protective of your ankles and shin for a great price then look no further! I bought these around two years ago and still have them. They are durable, the tuck inside my jeans and they're warm. Perfect for being inconspicuous when stopped off the bike for lunch or whatever. I would highly recommend them.
Mixed feelings on the quality
I have mixed thoughts about these boots. They appear to be well put together and are comfortable. After only two short trips on the bike. About 15 miles. I noticed a few cracks in the leather at the toe. There is extra leather protection mid foot for the gear shift. I must have missed placed my foot during gear change a couple of times and used the other part of the boot. Which obviously isn't very good grade leather. Considering sending them back....
