I've had these First Gear low mesh boots for only a couple of weeks but worn them many times and they are great. They really do flow a good amount of air in our hot desert weather. They were very comfortable right out of the box and are very good off the bike. They really look good and appear well made. Protection seems pretty good, but oddly, the ankle hard parts are actually below the ankle bones, but not bad. Be careful on the sizing. I wear a size 8 and ordered a size larger 42(9)as suggested, but I did have to send them back as they were way too big. No fuss return was great and got the replacement pair in size 41 in no time. These are perfect and still a roomy enough for air to circulate or to insert a thinner insert if you want to do a lot of walking as there is no insert padding. That's better in my experience for air flow, but maybe not for distance walking. They have enough give for a good walk without it. I have other boots that are so hard on the bottom you don't want to wear them off the bike, but these are fine as is. First Gear may be off on larger sizes, but not in my size where it was spot on where it should be. I really like these!
