I am a short rider, I can't get my heels down in a flat boot but these have given me so much confidence to put my feet down. Super grippy sole to help push a bike back. Fabulous for anyone struggling to support a heavy bike at a standstill. I have a 28" leg, I have a fazor 600... I tried a flat sole boot & sure enough on an uneven slope I lost the bike but in these I have much more control at a junction.. the high heel does not effect the driving of the bike at all..
