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.
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.
No fault of MCSS, I ordered a size 11, just like my hiking boots, which, if anything are 1/2 size too big. The Sidis were painfully tight, as in at least a full shoe size too small. And very very stiff. I clomped around the house with them on hoping to get used to them without getting them dirty and finally had to take them off and send them back. Honestly I don't think I could operate the motorcycle with them on. Besides that I need to be able to get off and walk around ocassionally and these are not designed for walking at all. After sending them back I am re-thinking the whole style of boot I really need. I wanted them because of the heavy armor...
