Over the past year, I have been searching/researching for a pair of adventure motorcycle boots (I know, I'm a loser). This will be my first pair of adventure boots (currently using Shift Racing Street boots) and my needs were somewhat simple. 1) Needs to be comfortable to walk in. 2) Waterproof. I live in Florida. 3) Good protection, but not full on MX boots. 4) Needs to look cool. (Sorry, I'm just being honest.) 5) Price (Something below $300) After searching and reading a ton of reviews and watching YouTube videos several boots made it to the top of my list. 1) Alpinestars Corozal Drystar Boot 2) TCX Track EVO WP 3) Icon Raiden DKR Boots All three of these are very popular and there is a ton of reviews on all of them and I REALLY wanted to love one of these so I could end my search. However, after reading the reviews, I decided against all three. For the following reasons: 1) Alpinestars Corozal Drystar Boot - Still very new to the market, some complain they make noise and are too big and clumsy to shift with. 2) TCX Track EVO WP - Not waterproof. 3) Icon Raiden DKR Boots - Screws fall out too often. So I decided to venture away from Revzilla and Motorcycle Superstore and see if I could find something else that would meet my needs. That's when I found the Falco Mixto 2's. I searched and searched and searched (including this website) and couldn't find too much about these boots. There are some YouTube videos, however, they are all in other languages. I did find this review about the previous version of these boots. http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcycle-boots/falco-mixto-boots/ I hold webbikeworld.com in pretty high regard, so I was impressed with what they said about the old version. After doing some shopping, I found the Falco Mixto 2 on sale for $229 shipped, which made these cheaper than the other boots I was considering. I decided to take a chance and so far I'm glad I did. I'm still breaking them in, but they are very comfortable and seem to be pretty lightweight for an adventure boot. I think they look great and have D30 armor in all the typical places. The tread seems like it will work and has Vibram soles. Based on webbike world's test, they should be pretty waterproof. I will report back when after having them in the Florida rain. Let me know if you have any questions. I'm not affiliated with this company or any other listed in this review. I wanted to do this review so that others could read something about these boots that's in our language .
