I had these for several years and many many trail miles. They are probably the best women's specific boot, and I understand they wear out in in time. But I've always had problems with the buckles. Enough that I hate these things. Pros: comfortable, fit great, good protection, like the looks. Cons: buckles and stitching. Like other reviewers have said they are impossible to use. when I take them off I have to relax and take a deep breath before I exert a huge feat of strength to just unbuckle them. Its my least favorite part of my ride. And don't stand near anything because after the buckle finally opens you will smash your hand on whatever is nearby. The I don't undo them from there. I can't get the buckle off the boot. We have drilled the hole and used wd40 and other things, which helps for one ride. But they don't come off. So I just loosen the boot and slip my foot out. Then when I go to buckle them I need to slip my foot in, tighten the velcro, and kick each buckle closed. The alpinestar 7s I had before weren't this way. I would probably buy these again if they had anything better for buckles. They are really that bad. The stitching has been coming undone around the ankles for quite a while. I think having a hinged ankle would help that. The rest of the wear has actually been pretty good. They are showing signs of heavy use, but now that the stitching coming undone is worse the leather is bending into my leg and they are uncomfortable. Time for new boots. I wish sidi or garne made my size.Read All Reviews
