Had a bad accident which left me with a fused slower spine and unable to get my Vortices on and off without imitating a pretzel for half an hour. Not as tough as the Vortices I had to sell, but better than my ST Airs, if not as all-day comfortable.
Main difference for me is that I can get them on and off as I'm hoping to return to the track next year.
I've worn Sidis for the past 8 years and it will take a lot to get me to change. Will probably get another pair of these as the main downside is they don't have replaceable lowers.
Similar comments to what Scott wrote: I got these in the same size as my running shoes (about 1/2 size over dress shoes) and the boots never felt really comfortable. They're just too tight to the point of hurting. Thinking it's a matter of breaking-in, I started riding in the Sidi's, but they never become comfortable enough. I just ended up ordering a 2nd pair a full size larger and hope that these will fit as expected. Will make someone else happy with the barely worn smaller pair.
The size seems to run true and they fit in the length but these boots have a very narrow toe. I do not take a wide size normally but they are tight in the toe.
If your foot is on the wide side I think you’d be better off looking for another boot.
Great quality and style though for the price.
Haven’t had a chance to test their wet weather capability.
Ordered size 11, I usually wear 10.5.
So tight even with very thin boot liner socks hurt my feet with them up in an easy chair. Standing was painfull.
Loved the features of the boot, just way to narrow and not enough room for my arch. Probably great for those with narrow feet and flat arches...
Sent them back, took two weeks to get refund after they received them, which I thought was pretty slow. Then ordered alpine stars, same problem with sizing. Ended up getting tcx rs2 air, they fit perfect, very comfortable.
