    Fantastic comfort and look, April 12, 2012

    This review is from: AXO ‘5to9′ Shoes (Black/Red, Size 10) (Automotive)
    I have been wearing these shoes for a couple of months and they are my preferred choice every morning, to the point that I reckon I need a different affect.

    FIT: they are small larger than the size they claim (I am a 9), but the BOA closure fix everything. Really, I found out that after a few steps I need to further tighen the shoes, as the pressure evens out smoothly across the foot. Basically there is no pressure point.

    PROTECTION: they are certainly more protective than my Nike high tops, as they come with ankle cups and extra padding, but I would recommend them oly for small rides and a pair of knee cups to protect the shin. I use them to commute everyday. One fantastic protection feature is for sure that the lace doesn’t come untied. And I assume (I don’t want to know) it is going to secure the shoes to the feet in case of impact.

    LOOK: I literally had people complimenting me for the shoes. Not sure if that was a nice way to approach me or if their intent was honest. By the way, I wear the yellow ones.

    COMFORT: best comfort ever as on all the other BOA equipped shoes that I have. I just need more of these.

    NEGATIVES: I would probably question for a stiffer sole, but this is having in mind dirt bike riding. For walking or hanging out it is fine, just like any other casual shoe.

    I was trying to find a shoe that would be dirt bike friendly but subdue let me blend in when I arrived. Normally I wear Vibrams 5 fingers so I was concerned about whatever thing that was too restrictive or isolating. Concerns alleviated! These feel less isolating than many running shoes I’ve worn and yet protect that shifter foot. The ratchet mechanism is a wonderful thought and not only keeps the laces out of the equation but it’s quick as thought.

    Sizing was a half size up. Normally I wear a 9 1/2 shoe, never a 9, rarely a 10. The AXO 10 fit me perfectly.

    Fantastic Pair of boots/shoes, December 9, 2014

    This Is a fantastic pair of street riding boots that look excellent as high top sneakers. Run a small huge as I wear a 9.5 and bought a 9. They are really warm. Warm for rides, hot to sit nearly in but definately comforable enough to wear all the time. Ratcheting tie sytem is a fantastic, simple function and catches the eye. Fantastic way to start talking about the bike you ride. The plastice on the side for your akle bone works out fantastic too. Saved me from really scrapping up my foot on a low speed drop I had.
