This is my second pair of Sidi boots. My first pair held up so well in a crash I had to get another. Break in takes a while but they feel secure, the perforations work great on the highway, and they look great! I'm a Sidi wearer for life.
These boots are new to the market and there aren't a lot of real reviews on it but I took a chance a bought a size 10 pair. Great boots, the fit was spot on. I was worried a boot this height would be hard to put on without a side zipper, but the closure system is excellent and with a bit of practice it's no problem. Very comfortable on or off the bike. The workmanship is almost excellent, just what I expected from SIDI. Highly recommended.
I have used this boot about 4 years now. They have been excellent in comfort and protection. I ride dual sport and off road and can say that wading into creeks or mud holes, water never has penitrated the boot. They are also quite easy to walk in due their good fit and softness. The only problems other than general wear, has been the toe caps. I gave up on keeping them on the boot and as a result I have to reglue the toes pretty often because they will start to separate . The other thing is the ATV type sole will sometimes stick in the off road foot pegs which can delay braking sometimes. I will soon buy another pair of these boots. They meet my needs very well.
So far so good, these boots are as-advertised; a high quality boot that is comfotable out of the box. These will be used for adventure touring, 80/20 pavement/dirt road. On a trip these will serve as an evening boot as well due to the comfort and good looks.
