Great boot at a great price.

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.

- I wear a size 12 shoe. (& riding boots) I have 'regular' feet, not narrow but I don't need wide sized feet. For example, I wear size 12 Alpinestars boots, 12 Axo etc etc... - After reading the reviews, I ordered size 13. They fit snugly even at 1 size up. I have a feeling that even a size 13.5 or even 14 would have still worked! - They have a decent upper construction similar to what you would find in a reasonably priced riding boot. They fold and flap and Velcro at the point where the foot goes in. Watch video reviews on YouTube to get an idea of how they look like. - The sole is a bit thin but does the job. The sole doesn't have a lot of grooves for traction but a lot of riding boots have this type of design. - Works well for short or long rides. Easy to take off and put on and you don't feel fatigue as a rider after a long ride. (some boots cause fatigue after long rides) - They feel alright when shifting. - would recommend but buy a size larger. If you have thick calfs or wide feet, buy 2 sizes larger.

These boots are more like shoes, with floppy tongues. No matter how tight the laces are, the youngest still flop. If you ride a bike with no wind or rain protection, you're gonna have a breezy, and maybe wet ride.

boots are good for the prices, but the ones i received had the straps going in the same direction. its a simple production defect. feels like i received a rejected batch

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.
