I had the Sidi On-Road Gore tex boots for a couple years and they were the best! But the trauma center had to cut them off of me as a result of a 17 year old girl texting and driving and making a left turn in front of me, shattering my leg. well, thanks to modern orthopedic surgical techniques and a titanium rod, I am back in the saddle after missing almost an entire riding season. To my dismay, I discovered they don't make the On-Road boot any more. Figured the All-Road model would be just as good. But it is not as solid and feels much lighter, somehow like they cheated on use of materials. the sole seems thinner and lighter too. I have only worn them in the rain once so far and my feet were dry, so i guess they work. have not worn them on a long ride in the rain yet though. The On-Road model also had a rubberized flap at the top of the boot that seemed more water proof; the All-Road model now has some kind of a synthetic material up there that seems like it wouldn't do the job, but apparently does. in summary, I probably haven't given this boot a fair trial yet. I ride year round and the Fall and Winter is approaching, so I guess I will find out.

I have owned two pair of these, wearing out my second pair now. this boot provides decent foot protection. Since you can't have you cake and eat it too, (both total protection and comfort) these are about as close as I think you can get. I Ride 700 miles a week and wear them at work. I have been wearing Doha's since early 2008. If they never stop making them, I will never stop buying them... Period. as far as motorcycle mileage, my two pair have gotten me through about 96k miles. I'd say that is pretty good. I highly recommend.

These boots are great. They are pretty good, light yet resistant, durable and reliable in terms if protection. They have lasted an average of 5 years, so they worth its price. I strongly recommend them! Regards from Costa Rica,.

Excellent overall. Fit is true to size. Same adjustable ratchet system used for their biking products. I along with many of my friends wear Sidi mountain bike shoes. No complaints of durability of the ratchet strap after hundreds of rides over many years. Sole is grippy on all surfaces and stiff but not overly stiff. Not risen in the rain yet but we all know the positive history of GoreTex products. A bit pricey. But you get what you pay for. Good looking boot. Easy to get on and off. I would recommend them to my friends.

I love these boots, it lives up to all of my expectations, keeps my feet cool and is easy to walk in and put on and off.

Great looking riding shoe. Used all summer and was plenty cool. Good dry weather shoe. Good fit, slight heel is nice feature. Sole is very stable and NON-slip, even on oily pavement. Got tons of compliments and people askin what kind of shoes they are. One thing I will say, they are not made in Italy and glad SIDI discloses that the design is SIDI but outsourced to be manufactured by others for cost reduction. Mixed feelings about that. Overall nothing to return them about. Bought the light suede and treated them with water and stain repellant before I used them. Highly recomended.
