I wouldn’t go to the zoo in them and walk around all day. I go shopping all the time with them on and they are just fine. As far as riding all day, sure, and all night too. Don’t expect them to feel great in 25f weather, my toes shivered. I wear size 13 shoes and size 13 sidis.
They are not padded like your boots for everyday use so be warned. Its pretty much leather, cloth then skin. They have a very nice thick raised sole on the bottom which I like and provides great traction.
They held up very well in my recent crash considering my foot was pinned between the car and the bike I walked away with only a bruise on the tip of my foot extending down the side to the heel. Ankle and toes were just fine.
