Great boot with nice fit and protection. great look with functional toe sliders. Hold up well in the rain, you may want to spray with water repellent for down pours. Easy entry with heavy Velcro, zipping is optional. Must be one of the best for the money!

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 needed a waterproof, warm, comfortable touring boot with decent protection and easy to get in and out of. This was a perfect answer for me. It's not heavy on protection like a track boot but yet still has decent protection features. It's kept me warm on 50 degree mornings wearing light socks and is very quick and easy to get on and off. I usually wear a 10.5-11 shoe and wear size 11 boots to allow thicker socks if needed and the size 11.5 fir me perfectly. Very comfortable. It does fit a little narrow, so guys with Fred Flintstone feet may have a problem. But for me, I'm very happy with it. No regrets.

I'm about to order my 4th pair, They are very comfortable and while they are not water proof i have ridden them in the rain. I commute 4 day's a week and the only draw back i see is the sole. took me about a year to wear out the sole ON each pair i have owned. I do like the 2 zippers, makes it easy to put on/ take off. The shin guard could also use some beef to it!

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.

Great ankle/foot protection for motorcycle riding.
