Sidi Adventure GTX Boots

The Sidi Adventure GTX Boots are the gold standard for adventure riding boots. Sidi pulled all the best bits from their famous line of off-road boots and combined them with the legendary quality of their road boots to create the glorious hybrid cyborg that is the Adventure Gore-Tex Boots. A bit more comfortable than off-road boots, the Adventure GTX boots incorporate a hinged ankle support, a rigid and shock-resistant heel cup and composite inner sole with a top grain leather construction, replaceable cam-lock buckles and a sweat wicking cambrelle lining.

The slim adjustable calf fits easily inside the pant leg of most riding pants, something that is not always possible with a traditional off-road boot, making them all the more attractive to ADV advocates and enduro enthusiasts. To top off the list of premium features these boots are 100% waterproof and breathable with a Gore-Tex lining that is Guaranteed to Keep You Dry.


  • Soft rubber sole for maximum grip
  • Replaceable strap system
  • Top grain leather construction
  • Composite inner sole
  • Removable arch support
  • Exclusive cam-lock buckle system
  • Cambrelle lining
  • Slim, cool non-bootie design
  • Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection
  • Split grain leather inner anti-wear/heat panel
  • Single Flex System upper

Awesome Boots Tried the Sidi line on in order of protection - Canyon, Armada and then the Adventure. Surprisingly, the Adventure were the most comfortable and they continue to be after the purchase. Hardly know you have them on but have not yet tested in driving rain or hot weather. Recommend wearing them with an over the calf light ski sock. November 17, 2015
simply great i read a lot about this product before buying it, read a lot of reviews about the noise or squeaking the boot produced. com on guys, you're buying a boot for going off road, not too use in the office!!! a love the product, fits and feels great! am taking it this week to a trip to Brazil! November 16, 2015
Spend The Money I believe this is the boot you need if you want max protection with a lot of longevity. All the parts appear to be of great quality and fit was spot on with the help of a Revzilla Pro. Took a little time to brake in they will squeak but a little silicone and that was gone. Depending on the weight of sock that I wear I can adjust for the weather. Buckles are very easy to adjust. November 9, 2015
Foot Armor! This is a fine boot with out a doubt, I'll spare you all the blah blah and get down to brass tax: Pro's: * Excellent ankle protection. * Fast & easy buckle/velcro access. * Considering what it is, mobility is not bad at all. Con's: * You best wear good moisture wicking socks, gets warm in there. Recommend the Moto-Skiveez socks. (No, I don't work for either RevZ or M-S). * Some people have reported heavy squeaking. I find that the soles do squeak on tile floors and such. Price to pay for good grip. Some others report the leather squeaks against the buckles. Use a leather shoe conditioner and BHAM! October 5, 2015
Excellent Boot I got these as I do a lot of riding solo and would much prefer to spend a little more $ on protection than chance a busted ankle waiting for someone to happen by and assist. These met every expectation I had, comfortable right out of the box, extremely well made and waterproof as guaranteed. As everybody has mentioned they do make a little noise, mine aren't so much of a squeak as a creak if that makes sense. Exactly the noise you'd expect from leather against plastic. They are what they are, I'm not wearing them to the office and if I did I wouldn't care if someone looked at me funny because my boots make noise, everybody looks at me funny anyway. These are as bomb proof as you can get without going to a MX boot, very comfortable for extended milage and not bad at all to walk in off the bike. September 21, 2015
Great boots I wore these boots on a trip from Michigan to Colorado and toured back roads and jeep trails in Colorado. We had plenty of rain and I can vouch that the boots are completely water proof. They are comfortable, look good, and appear to provide quite a bit of protection, especially compared to "road style" motorcycle boots. I also have a pair of Sidi Crossfire boots; the adventure boots do not provide as much protection as the Crossfires. The only thing I would change about the Adventure boots is their thick, sewn-on soles with heavy tread cleats. These give the boots an awkward feel when operating the motorcycle controls, especially when up-shifting or changing foot position on the pegs. The Crossfire boots have bolted on soles which are thinner and have a smooth surface. Although less comfortable for walking, I find the Crossfires give me a more nimble, in-control-feeling on the bike, compared to the Adventure boots. Overall, however, I'd rate the Adventure boots as excellent for their comfort, protection, and water proofing. September 3, 2015
Loud Enough to Wake the Dead. These are a solidly built boot. However, after a couple days of wearing, they began to squeak and I mean LOUDLY. I bought these thinking that I could wear them during work. No such luck. Everyone constantly makes fun of me. I walk down the hallway and the squeaking is heard from a few hundred feet away. I hear over the cubicles, "Rudy's coming!" I can't even wear these in the middle of the night at campsites. They're louder than snoring. Revzilla tried to help out by sending me some NikWax Conditioner but it didn't help at all. I am extremely unhappy with these boots. I have to carry a second pair of "non-embarassing" shoes with me. I am highly disappointed that a company such as Sidi released a boot such as these. I do NOT absolutely DO NOT recommend unless you're walking among the dead. Oh, another issue... don't wear these in the rain. Your feet will get soaked. They have no water resistance at all. FYI, I ride a BMW R1200GS, not a Triumph Bonneville with these boots. Revzilla isn't updating my info correctly. August 29, 2015
The best adventure boot I purchased these boots for an adventure trip to Colorado, and they performed flawlessly. The weather ranged from 45 degrees and raining to 98 degrees and blazing sun. They protected my feet and kept them warm and dry for the entire trip. I also wear them on my daily 4 mile commute. The Texas summers are brutal and will leave your feet sweaty after 20 minutes of riding, but the added protection makes it worth it. For longer summer riding(> 85 degrees), I would get a boot with better airflow. Pros: Protection - these boots are really well built, with awesome protection in the shin and heel. My feet stayed dry in the rain and a brief walk through various streams/water crossings Styling - they look as awesome IRL as they do in the photos Quality - the leather is top quality, the soles are sufficiently grippy, and the plastics seem to be high quality and hopefully long-lived Cons: Pricey - very expensive(obviously) but you get what you pay for Sizing - About a 1/2 size too big. I have the 10/44, and I wear a size 10 in any number of shoes, but these boots are definitely 10.5 US. Airflow - these are weather-proof boots, so it's not surprising that they're not breathable As with any new boot, expect these to be a little stiff and bulky, making it a little difficult to shift and find your footing on the bike. I'd recommend wearing them for a bit to stretch them out and getting used to how they feel/operate on a bike before heading out for a long trip. August 25, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
j d: These are the best ADV and light dirt bike boots there are, period. Nov 19, 2015
John B: Great reviews. Really stiff, but are comfortable to walk in when you get off the bike. Tend to be a little swampy, but much better than other boots I have worn. Oct 19, 2015
Peter C: Freakin Awesome! After a couplel trys with Dianese "Waterproof" boots I bought these thanks to Revzilla helping me out and couldn't be happier! These babies keep the rain out in torrential downpours, mud, standing in water, name it. I've worn them down to 5°F in upstate NY and they fit and function fantastic. I will say a full steel shank would be nice for days standing on the pegs, but a couple advil mid day (on a 600 mile day) take care of the very minimal foot ache. I'm 52. Oct 12, 2015
James K: The only complaints I come across on these are the price and squeaking even with these cons that they are the ultimate adventure boot. Plus I don't skimp on safety gear. Oct 12, 2015
Bill P: Looked at a range of options and tried a number of different boots with Revzilla. The co was great with returns. Chose these compared to A/S Toucan GoreTex the end because my pants would fit over the SIDI boot. I love these boots now Sep 30, 2015
Rudolph P: I heard good things but I regret the decision. Aug 29, 2015
A s: They make me look like Mel Gibson from "Mad Max"...... Its true. Aug 20, 2015

Harlan F: Nothing Says "I Kick Ass" Like A Pair of Sidi Adventure Boots . . . They Simply Rock Off Road! Aug 7, 2015
Bruce R: Needed good boots with good protection Aug 6, 2015
Douglas J: Great boots with lots of protection and comfort. No issues in hot weather. They were very squeaky when new, but by applying Nikwax or other suitable waterproofing wax for leather Gore-Tex shoes between the leather and articulating parts will stop the squeaks. Aug 4, 2015
Karl M: They are simply the most badass boots I could find! 3 years in and they are still as good as the day I got them, I bet they'll last another 10 years easy! Aug 4, 2015
Thomas C: Looked wicked and need 4 season boots Aug 4, 2015

Thomas H: Have been very satisfied with SIDI boots in the past. Lookes like excellent protection plus Gore-Tex. Would rather have had a thinner, smooth sole, but will take a look at these. Jun 1, 2015
Mark T: Purchased for my trip to northern Alaska - excellent boot - needs some silicon lubricant at the hinges to elimate some of the squeaks. Functional and comfortable - minimal break in required. May 25, 2015
Richard C: Looking for a boot with good foot protection for adventure riding on my KTM 1190. Choose this boot for the gore tex benefits and buckle verses zipper construction that ensured adjustable fit and mud tolerance. May 16, 2015
Gary R: I have a 16 year old pair of Aerostitch Combat Touring boots who are made by Sidi, but I'm tired of carrying around rain boots and looking like I'm having a seizure on the side of the road putting them on. Now I have set a boots that I know will offer more protection and waterproof but squeak like dog toys. May 15, 2015
Michael B: Already own the Adventure Rain; but wanted the the full 'Gore-tex' waterproof experience. May 12, 2015
J B: Water proof and just a great boot May 8, 2015

Doug L: Experience with Sidi products for many years and they are great. Nice to be able to get replacement parts as well. Always get Gore-Tex...hate wet feet! Dec 11, 2014
Janet F: Nice protective boot. Bought it because Sidi Cross Fire was too high on my shorter calf. Toe box is not as low profile as Cross Fire, but not as boxy as Tech 3 Alpinstar. Dec 6, 2014
Brad E: Iv been using sidi mt bike shoes for years & love them & when i started moto riding it was a know brainer Sidi Dec 1, 2014
Brant M: After extensive gathering of information from the internet and friends, I concluded that purchasing these boots was my best path to upgrading foot and ankle protection from my BMW Allrounds while also maintaining some ability to walk about in the boots. I'm worried about sizing, but believe that the combination of RevZilla's no-hassle return policy and the ability to try them on for a while at home will provide my best chance to get that right. Nov 29, 2014
Thomas C: Owner of Sidi Gore-Tex "On Road" series for touring and well pleased with their performance. Ordered these boots for Adventure riding "Off Road". Only concerns for this product are: squeaking, reported on-line and experienced by fellow riders. Nov 27, 2014
Michelle S: I wanted a winter/rain boot, that was comfortable, and would ensure my feet stayed dry Nov 17, 2014

David A: I have Sidi crossfire 2 and love them. Sidi makes great boots. Sep 25, 2014
Rick P: needed a real motorcycle boot for protection, comfort, and wanted newest generation of Gore-Tex. After hundreds of reviews read, I decided on these --- by the way they are great. Sep 18, 2014
A W: I'm a huge fan of Sidi boots, having owned several pair including the On-Road. Though I really like the fit and feel of the On-Road boots, they lack the TPU protection some of their sportier boots include. It seems to me this boot will be the perfect blend of street and off-road functionality. Sep 10, 2014
Mark B: Online reviews and help from sales people in the store here. Sep 6, 2014
Sue W: Nearly half-a-million miles on various SIDI boots. Never, ever a regret. Aug 31, 2014
Dave G: I got these for some off road stuff in North Carolina. and wow. They were and are great. fit just right and thru 2 days of rain.I was definitely dry and protected. I wear them some days riding street. especially if it looks like rain. always off road. great protection. Aug 9, 2014
Jim M: Second pair, wore the first pair down to nothing, Still waterproof and comfortable... Guessing 150,000 miles Jul 29, 2014
Mario P: Anthony sold me on them.. lol... serously I am convinced that these are the best boots for what I am about to get into. I don't want to say down the road man I should have got the better boots. Can't wait to get them. Jul 26, 2014
David N: Recently switched from sport touring to adventure touring. My old Sidi boots are on there last legs and it was time for a new pair. Sidi are expensive but my last pair served me well. Hoping I feel the same in five or six year when these need replacing. Jul 7, 2014
AJ S: These boots were chosen because of the excellent video review here on Revzilla. In hindsight and two years later the boots have held up very well in many tuff situations and saved my hide a good four times already. These boots are one of the greatest pieces of gear that I own. Jul 5, 2014
Kevin H: Protection. I have an old ankle injury and need to avoid reinjury. Jun 29, 2014
Kimberly P: reviews and revzilla return policy hopefully I will be as happy as other owners. Jun 24, 2014
Gregg G: Recommended by Matt to be best fit to skinny calves compared to Alpinestars Toucan and TCX Desert. Jun 23, 2014
Bill S: Tons of research and it seems, you get what you pay for....I hope!! Jun 6, 2014
wiley t: online reviews as well as magazine reviews Jun 2, 2014
William Y: You buy the best you get the best. May 19, 2014
Pete P: My 5 yr old Sidi Discovery Rain boots leak badly. I like dry feet. May 13, 2014
Greg W: brand loyalty, I've been riding Sidi bicycle shoes for 20 yrs. They are typical excellent Sidi quality but going to be HOT in SC summer. May 10, 2014
Gary w: These boots were well recommended by friends. I figured they would be the right thing for me because I wanted a comfortable, protective, waterproof (Goretex) boot. The price on these is high, but I figure they will last me several years. Dry feet are a must. I also appreciate the shin protection because I mashed my shin last year when I was thrown from my KTM. Apr 23, 2014
Rob R: Gore-Tex, durable, perfect fit. Apr 21, 2014
Arsenio G: Great comfort and protection,,,specially when walking is a part of your trip Apr 17, 2014
Steven M: I am pleased with these boots and the awesome protection they provide. I wanted something for both street and off road adventure riding. I've heard some people complain about the clicking/squeaking, but it is not something I have noticed. It will take some time to get used to shifting with the additional ankle support if one hasn't worn MX style boots before. I love the piece of mind they provide. If, God forbid, you go down on your adventure you would want to have these on. Apr 16, 2014
Brian F: Gore-Tex, light weight, protection & comfort. Apr 5, 2014
Scott F: To replace a nine year old set of SIDI Flex Force boots. Apr 2, 2014
T L: Because of old Anthony ! Mar 30, 2014
Stephen E: A local brick and mortar store stocked the SIDI Adventure Rain. I liked the look, fit and feel, also the on/off road versatility. The price difference to upgrade to real leather and Gore-Tex just made sense (after watching the Revzilla videos and reading the reviews). Mar 23, 2014
John B: Every review indicated this was a near perfect selection for my 50/50 style adventure riding. Mar 15, 2014
C J: I ride all the time and these are supposed to be the best. Mar 15, 2014
Pete P: Anthony! Anthony's the Man! Great reviews, helped me decide which boots to order! If their good enough for you, their good enough for me! Mar 14, 2014
Stephen K: Bought the cheaper version but were to small. I like the style a lot so I chose to get the goretex boot instead. They did not seem to so expensive with the credit applied :) Mar 13, 2014
David B: Several of my friends have these boots are were highly recommended. I totally agree, they are comfortable and offer great protection. Mar 10, 2014
B R: Level of protection, all season/weather and reviews of comfort. Mar 6, 2014
Lukas V: Because they had great reviews . Mar 4, 2014
James B: I was told these are very good adventure boots so i want to try them out. Mar 1, 2014
Edward B: Reviews, quality, function Mar 1, 2014
Tim B: look and sound awesome! reviews were all good, Feb 20, 2014
Danny C: I own a pair of SIDI Canyon Gore-Tex boots and really like them. I like the added protection offered by the Adventure Gore-Tex boots. Feb 7, 2014
Brian M: I have had several pairs of Sidi boots before and I like their fit. This pair fits great, has lots of protection, is easy to get on and off and they are waterproof. A great boot! Feb 7, 2014
Robert B: Based on video, seemed to be best all around boot for sport touring, best value for the $. Jan 19, 2014
Jon B: These are the best boot money can buy, and yes they are water proof unless the water goes over the top, then they make very good fish tanks. Dec 10, 2013
D A: I've owned a pair of Sidi motocross boots in the past and I found them to be the best on the market. They were a very solid, well-made boot with lots of protection. I was very happy with them and figured they'd have the best adventure boot as well. Dec 5, 2013
Mats C: Awesome adventure boots. Fast service from Revzilla Nov 28, 2013
Andrew S: Better ankle support Nov 25, 2013
Christopher J: safety Nov 6, 2013
Dan S: Protection first, yet I have heard it is walkable. I had the Gaerne G-adventure and was not impressed with protection and it definitely was not water proof (sent back warrantee). I see it as a good ATV boot, NOT ADV. Nov 4, 2013
Tom C: Revzilla had the best price Oct 25, 2013
Richard D: I wanted a solid protective boot that is also water proof. I've had great italian made goretex hiking boots before that lasted 13 years and counting so I wanted to make sure that I invested in a good pair of riding boots that would last just as long. I am happy to make a large investment in something that will last. Oct 23, 2013
Phoebe B: I chose these boots based on excellent information about them conveyed through revzilla. Sep 23, 2013
Kim R C: I like the look of the boot. I did much research. It seems that this boot will do well on road, off road and light walking. As I had a fractured heel, I need some support in the foot bed, and this boot looks like it will be great. I have a sense, a feeling, this is the boot for me. Sep 19, 2013
sands p: A versatile boot for the types of riding I choose. Sidi has a reputation for a quality product. Sep 11, 2013
Eric M: Good reviews, and Gore Tex. One boot to do everything but MX. Sep 9, 2013
Robert M: Gore-Tex and the protective features of the boot. Video description was awesome as always Aug 29, 2013
David V: Florida weather. Gotta be ready for anything. Oh, and now I won't be scraping the sides of my good shoes on the way to work, so that's a plus. If only there was a Gore-Tex adv boot designed for maximum breathability but with all replaceable sliders and hardware... Oh, and with fully protected joint over the ankle and resoleable while you're at it. Maybe mold airflow channels into the TPU protection? Aug 14, 2013
Perry O: Highly recommended based on form fit and function. Aug 9, 2013

Guideboat: I just learned the difference. The Adventure Rain is not waterproof, it is only considered Water Resistant. I recently rode from upper Maine to NY in heavy rain the whole distance; my feet were wet at the end of the trip. Sidi made it very clear that the Adventure Rain is a water resistant boot so the wet toes was possible after a long ride. It is not waterproof. Sidi honored my complaint by allowing me to pay the difference to upgrade to the Gore-tex version, So does that answer why it is $250 more to get it waterproof. Oct 19, 2011

RyanMotonation: There are a few differences.

1. Construction - Adventure Rain models are constructed of Lorica, while the Adventure Gore-tex are constructed of Top Grain Italian leather. In order to create gore-tex models, Sidi must purchase and used the approved leather by gore-tex.

2. Breathability - Since the Rain models are made of Lorica, by technical standards of how the materials work (lorica vs. leather) the Rain boots have slightly better breathability. That being said, we have yet to have anyone say the Gore-tex version doesn't breath better or worse.

3. Warranty - All Sidi boots are covered by a 2 year warranty. The only extended warrantees on Sidi boots come from the Gore-tex Lifetime guaranteed that the boots will be waterproof. If your boots leak after the 2 years of purchase, you would contact gore-tex. And again, that warranty is only for the waterproofness of the boots, not the manufacture defect warranty that Motonation provides in the first 2 years of purchase.

multimotors: The Sidi Adventure Gore-Tex boots are identical to the Sidi Adventure Rain boots with the exception that the waterproof membrane is made by Gore as opposed to another lesser priced (presumably inferior, but I doubt it) brand. PERSONALLY, I find that Gore-tex on a textile jacket or pants is value-added, but Gore on the inside of an all-leather or a leather and plastic boot just adds cost without benefit (Sorry Anthony, I know you are a Gore disciple) Oct 10, 2011

Niels M: GoreTex vs proprietary water resistant liner. GoreTex should be better breathing and fully waterproof, while the liner in the Rain would be water resistant and not as good breathing.

If you never plan on being in rain or walking thru puddles, riding across streams, etc, the Rain may be a better option & somewhat cheaper, while the GoreTex is a go-everywhere boot for all kinds of weather.

Eric P: Guaranteed waterproof, full-grain leather construction.

I think otherwise it's the same boot.

Now, since the boot is only $100 more than the ADV rain, it really makes it easier to swallow. For me, the extra $100 was worth it. I think any serious adv riding involving streams, rain, long distances, etc. would benefit greatly from the added waterproofness.

brianm929: I think the price spread is down to $100 now. I think the Revzilla video explains it well. You are paying for the Goretex product and insurance provided. Also, the product is different due to Goretex requirements such as full grain leather and I believe the liner is also different. Apr 9, 2013

A shopper asked: Sorry if this has previously been covered. Trying to decide between a 42 and 43. I've tried on the Adventure Rains and have been told that the Rains won't stretch as much as the Gore-tex boot after breaking in. Both are fine - but if the Gore-tex stretches a little it might be the right choice given that I'm in between. I wear a 9.5 sneaker and with shoes its all over the place - but have been going with 42s in Ecco. Thanks! What can you recommend? Apr 22, 2015

Keith G: I can't answer the question about which boot will stretch more... What I can say is that I wear a pair of 45 Ecco golf shoes and I bought a pair of adventure gortex boots which fit quite narrow... They never did break in enough to accomendate my larger foot
If your foot is wider than a d width... Look into the Gaerne boots... That is what I will consider next

A shopper asked: My riding consists of about 80-85% on road...10-15% off road ( nothing too hardcore anymore-getting too old!). I want good protection, and
waterproof, but also comfort for touring and walking when off of the bike. Is this boot too heavily weighted toward off road for my style? Any input would be appreciated. If this isn't the right boot...any recommendations?

Randy S: I purchased these boots for a 3200 mile ride in Alaska. The ride was 80% street and 20% dirt. Everyone has a personal taste and style so I will give you my perspective. There is a tradeoff between comfort and protection. I tend to lean towards the side of having more protection at the expense of some more comfort. With that said, these boots were surprisingly comfortable and easy to walk in when I got off the bike. They have good flexibility and were definitely waterproof. I couldn't complain about the boots in any way. With that said, if you were planning on walking around a town for 2 to 4 hours sightseeing, you would probably want to slip into something that is lighter in weight but these were the best walking boots I have had. I have ridden off road bikes for many years and my off road boots are way stiffer and more difficult to walk in. These really work pretty well. Nov 5, 2013

Tahi B: These boots are very comfortable. I wore these on a ride from Anchorage to Deadhorse/ Prudhoe bay in Alaska. A 2000 mile trip. Temperatures ranging from 70 degrees down to 19 degrees. I rode hundreds of miles of muddy dirt roads as well as highway in the pouring rain. These boots kept my feet very comfortable warm and dry.
I've used these boots on a couple of local (SoCal) trips that was mostly pavement and they were good. Temperatures mid 80's down to low 60's
These boots are comfortable, they are waterproof, they look good. They are at the high end of the $$$ but one day riding in Alaska made them priceless to me.

George W: I would highly recommend these boots. I ride a Multistrada every day, and I find these boots easy to put on and they have a comfortable fit. My utmost concern with a boot is foot and ankle safety; these boots are very good for that. I do service them by black polish, not for shining, but more to condition the leather, and make them less squeaky when walking with the. (You'll never sneek up on anyone for sure). I've never understood why anyone would not always wear a boot when riding...especially urban riding. You won't regret buy them ever. Nov 6, 2013

Christopher G: No, I would think this boot might be perfect. It is very comfortable both on the bike and walking around. I actually feel the sole might be a little too soft, especially for any extended standing on the pegs - I was expecting a much stiffer boot but I am happy with it. Only problem with walking around all day in it is IT SQUEAKS ! But, when I bought these for riding so I don't care if they squeak while I walk to the bike. The deciding factor will probably be whether or not they fit your feet. Hope that helps Nov 5, 2013

Douglas P: My riding has about the same breakdown of onroad/offroad riding. I'm also getting up there in years (72) but find myself in some technical spots from time to time. I really like these boots - they keep my feet warm and dry and have saved my ankles in a couple of tip overs. They aren't exactly hiking boots, but they are perfectly comfortable for the walking I do. I have walked over a mile several times to view interesting sights with no discomfort. Nov 5, 2013

Kostyantyn B: I have walked a couple of miles in the city in this boot. They were comfortable, but it was a little awkward and I would wear a different pair of shoes if I was going on a hike or something. For commuting to work, shopping for groceries, or stopping by a restaurant they are not very noticeable. They also squeak a little. I got these primarily for protection. And yes, you can walk in 6" standing water in them and they stay bone dry. Nov 7, 2013

David S: This is a perfect boot for what you described. I purchased the boot for a 2 week adventure ride out west. 90% road - 10% gravel, dirt. Temperature range 32 - 107 degrees. I wore the boots for 10-12 hours per day. They were warm in the higher temps but what boot wouldn't be? My US shoe size is 8.5 and I purchased 41 EUR, which fit perfect. The will stretch a bit when they break in after about 1 day. I hope this helps. Nov 5, 2013

John B: 1st off they are very water proof had them in rain (hard rain at speed, legal of course) for 7 hours no water period.
2nd rode in 100 degree temps, hiked with them 3 miles climb rock stairs going up was much easier than going down. They do squeak so no sneaking up on anybody. Heavy like a good heavy work boot, but you are protected very well. one last comment would I buy them again ? In a heart beat.

A s: I have the adventure Gore-tex and Sidi Canyon Gore-tex.. and my riding style is similar to yours..but honestly I thing that the Canyon Gore-tex are the best all around boot available.. if you don't care about noise while walking and a little bit heavier and taller, you better go with the adventure model which offer better protection..Out the bike the Canyon boots win big time...my two cents Nov 5, 2013

Brian E: I have had a few different brands, and these Sidis are my favorite so far. I am getting old too, and I have bad knees, artificial hip, etc., etc., so I want the best protection I can get. I have dumped my bike a few times with these boots with no damage to ankles or shins. They are just fine for walking around except for the squeaking, but that can be handled with some lubricant.

Gail M: You do not need the SIDI Adventure for paved highway riding. However, if you ride gravel or dirt roads it provides a lot of protection.

Tyler H: The boots are true to size, not tight, but secure, not bulky either, as compared to Alpine Stars. The footbeds are perfect for finding the brake and shift levers on a GS.

AJ S: I've had these boots for about 2 years and although a bit tattered at this point because of the type of riding that I do, they are holding up well.

The Biker-Land.DE website is obviously a German company and the boot price is €305 Euros which translates into about $415 USD.

As far as I know SIDI is an Italian company and the only thing that seems to make sense about the large disparity in price would be shipping charges & import duty into the US from Europe.

Depending on where you live Biker-Land.DE may or may not be a good deal. I find Revzilla's pricing to be very competitive and if any issues arise that call for a return of goods, that initial great price will quickly become a thing of the past.

Jon B: They are very expensive, I have never seen them on sale. So if they cost less somewhere else as long as you are sure they are the Gortex boots go for it. The Adventure boot that is not gortex is about $150 less, not what I want, probibly not what you want. Good boot much smaller and lighter than my MX boots. I still use the MX boot for real dirt riding. The Adventure boots for travel, they do get dirty and wet on the outside. Nice boots worth the money. Good luck. May 29, 2014

William L: I agree these are very comfortable etc but I'm not sure i would use them for a sport bike. i find they don't have the ankle flex i like for sport bike shifting. Using them on my GS, they are great but I do have to raise the shifter up a bit to comfortably position myself for upshifting and and then 'stomp' to down shift (heal slightly off the peg to get the sole on top of the shifter). there may be a shifter solution but, for a sport bike where I like to be running up and down the gears quickly, I prefer a boot designed for the road. That said, for a GS or touring type rider and bike, this boot is great. And offroad it provides a lot of protection for a crossover boot.

Christopher B: I purchased these boots a few years back and have been completely satisfied with them. I wore them on a week long ride to the Mohave desert. Although I needed a great boot with a high level of protection, the thing that I really love about them is the comfort. First of all, they breathe extremely well and remain cool in hot weather. Secondly, I was extremely impressed with how comfortable they were when I was walking or hiking. I don't have to change out of my boots if I feel like exploring.

Jerry Y: I'm a 50/50 rider on a KTM690Enduro and BMW 1200GS. The Adventure's are my only boots. They are far better than anything else I've worn, providing great ankle protection and a comfortable fit. Being leather, I suspect they have enough give to be flexible for your needs; but I have no experience with them on a sport bike. They were comfortable from day one and as they have broken in I've just adjusted the buckles to fit my needs for protection and flexibility. Hope this might help some.

Rodney H: I wear my Sidi adventure boots while riding my BMW RT1200. I do not ride off-road,with the exception of a gravel or dirt road every now and then. They are definitely waterproof. I doubt you will find a motorcycle boot with more protection. Like other Sidi boots I have they creak and squeak a lot during break-in and beyond. I have yet to find a way to eliminate the creaking and squeezing. It is pretty common with all Sidi boots I have owned. Age quiets them eventually. Build quality is superb. They are comfortable in the 30 degree temperature range. I have worn them in the 80's. I recommend these boots. They are definitely the best I have ever owned. That said, I do not wear them on the Italian sport bikes. They are too big and cumbersome for that. Rodney Apr 6, 2015

Andrew P: Well, I've taken one moderate street spill, and multiple offroad falls on my F800GS, and my feet have never had any ill effects befall them whatsoever. In one event, the entire weight of the F800 came down on my left foot in a rut, twisting it around 180 degrees, and the boot kept my foot completely problem free (though it was certainly uncomfortable). I would say that it is more than adequate for all but the most aggressive off road riding. If you're going to do big jumps, and serious motocross riding, then I'd look for a race boot. Otherwise, these things are really fantastic. Just be aware that they do squeak. No way around that! ;) Apr 6, 2015

They are perfect for the type of riding I do but it sounds like your boyfriend rides more aggressive and needs more protection than these like the Side crossfire. To me they are true to size and fit perfect. I don't know how Fox boots run. Hope that helps. Apr 8, 2015

Edward B: I wear mine for adventure riding. They do offer very good protection with metal plates in critical areas. The boots are very comfortable, even to walk in, and dry. I would assume a typical motocross boot offers more protection but the SIDI Adventure Gore-tex do offer very good protection off road. I went up 1/2 size so I would suggest the 12.5. Apr 7, 2015

Frank C: These are excellent boots and offer a high level of protection. However, if I were looking for a strictly off road boot, would consider a more technical boot. For the record, I almost never ride off road. Typically commute or tour. These boots do hold up in weather. Apr 6, 2015

A shopper asked: Im riding a BMW RT, is this too much boot and can I jam it under the gear shift lever? Im desperate for a new pair of Boots, my WP Harley boots barely fit under the shifter and today was 27F when I hit the road. These or the SIDI Tour? Dec 15, 2014

James R: Even though these are comfortable for daily riding, they are beefy boots with a tall toe box. They work great for my GS but I would not recommend them for an RT unless you can try the boots at a dealership and then go sit on a bike. Good luck. They are awesome boots, but perhaps not the best pick for an RT. Dec 16, 2014

Tahi B: I use these boots while riding my KTM 990 Adventure and they are awesome for touring while on this kind of bike. I used them once while riding my KTM Super Duke and it wasn't a good fit. Maybe too much boot for a non adventure bike. Tour boots are probably better Dec 15, 2014

Dmitry G: HI, in my opinion they should fit. Despite the fact that they are full size and look big they are still flexible enough due to bending plastic straps and nylon inserts on top. Given the protection level of a full size boot they are very flexible. Dec 15, 2014

A shopper asked: I have never worn full boots before and have fairly wide calves. I am wondering how wide these are in the calf/ankle and how much sensible adjustment there is up there.

I normally wear a 10.5-11 in shoes that I know will wear in and 11 in shoes that put up a bigger fight. I am thinking I would probably be looking at something on the order of 46 if they become available to factor in the reported narrow cut and the rigidity. Does this sound like a sensible approach?

Jon B: Sidi changed how the upper part of the boot fastens, only Velcro and you can keep the upper boot as loose as you want, on me they are plenty big. The lower clamps have no effect on the calf area. This is a big change from the older Sidi boots that depended on clamps higher up which was a problem. Great boots so far, I bought size 11 to wear thicker socks. My normal size is 10.5. These boots are quite thin compaired to real motorcross boots that are padded. these are not padded. For serious dirt riding I still wear by MX boots, these are for Adventure traveling and are great. Nov 14, 2013

Brian M: I think your approach is correct. Size 46 should work. I have large calves and the boots fit great. These are great boots. I have put about 6000 miles of travels in hot and cold weather. They work great. Nov 14, 2013

William L: hey. i wear between 10.5 & 11.5 depending upon shoe but generally 46 works for me (all my mc boots are 46 because i like a little space for sock padding). i have 46 in the sidi adv gore-tex and they fit great. i also wear a little heavier boot sock in them for added padding.

regarding break-in, the uppers really break in well with use. they start as franken-boots but a few hours of rough offroading and they feel great. only thing is they obviously won't stretch in length at all give the heavy sole and welt so keep that in mind.

as for the calf fit, i've got skinny runner's calves. these boots are nice for me because the velcro allows me to close them right down (as opposed to a pair of astars i have with a ratchet buckle that are always slightly loose). that said, these can get pretty big. i took my 46s and 'fastened' the velcro with a very minimal ~1/2 inch overlap. measuring the inside circumference, 1/2 inch down from the top of the boot, i get 19 inches around. guessing that, for hard bombing around, 1/2 inch velcro overlap wouldn't be enough - they would likely come unfastened. so doing the same experiment with all of the hook velcro on the outside flap attached to loop velcro on the boot (in other words, the most contact you can get with the largest opening) i get an inside circumference of 17 3/4 inches.

ok ... probably overworked this but hope this helps. i love these boots. they do make shifting a little tough. i've adjusted my shift lever up a bit to allow for up-shifting. as a result, down-shifting requires a 'stomp'. and if i ride with road boots, i almost have to pop my foot up to shift. but i've taken some pretty good diggers with these boots and they really saved me. i've also caught my foot on rocks etc. during sliding turns and i know these have saved me from broken toes and twisted ankles.

Charles H: I am 72 inches tall and weigh 230 lbs. I normally wear a size 11 shoe and have fairly large calves. These boots fit me perfectly, they are size 46. Very comfortable on the bike (Honda ST1300), but I would not recommend them for walking around for any great distance. The boots are not hot in the Atlanta summer heat and are surprizingly warm in winter. Not a drop of water gets to my feet even in a downpour. If you can not tell I am extremely happy with these boots and with the service and support I got/get from Revzilla. These are great boots and worth every penny I paid for them.

David G: Hi. I wear 10.5 wide tennis shoe. I ordered a size 45 in this boot and they fit perfect. For me there is plenty of adjustment in the calf and ankle. I have not had a ton of boots but this pair is without a doubt the best pair I have ever had. I had a small mishap where my BMW 1200 fell and one of the pistons ended up on my foot. So the whole weight of the bike is on the boot. A friend got the bike up and I walked away without a problem. The ankle was a little sore for a couple days but nothing else. Anyway I think they are great boots. Best of luck. Nov 14, 2013

A shopper asked: I am in decision between this boot and the TCX X-Desert Gore-Tex. I ADV ride 70/30% on/off road so either of these two boots seems to be a good fit for my riding style. So the question really rides on boot fit to my foot. I wear a 10EE in work boots and my arch is stable and fairly high. My RT foot is 280mm long and my LT foot is 285mm long and both feet are 110mm wide at the ball of the foot. Can you offer advise to which boot is going to give me a better fit and at what size in each would I need to order. 44 45????

thank you,

David S: I hope this helps you decide. The Sidi Adventure Goretex is absolutely awesome. I purchased these boots for a two week adventure in August. We rode through 100 degrees, snow in the mountains and full days of rain. My feedback would be that they are warm in 100 degree temps but what boots wouldn't be?

I am a true 8.5 US size and I purchased both a 41 and 42 to get the size right. I went with the 41 and was a bit snug at first but it stretches and breaks in nicely. The 42 felt good but a little long and it would have been too sloppy after breaking in. All day (12 hours) comfort with the 41 size. 1-2 day break in and good to go. I would purchase another pair in the same size.

Perry O: Marc,
I bought the SIDI boots and have been very pleased with them. I wear a size 45 in a normal dress shoe and that is the size I purchased. I ride a KTM 990 and I'm 6'4" 210 lbs. These boots fit me perfect, I have a wider foot and the arch support and width are excellent. Our riding styles are similar so I can tell you the boot has done well for me.

If in doubt, I'd recommend trying on a comfortable pair of shoes ( I wear Ecco shoes which are typically a wider fit). And sizing from there.

The only drawback on these boots is they do seem to squeak when you walk in them, but I have yet to address this with silicon spray.

Good luck, and spend the money... you won't be disappointed.

Clayton L: I have almost the exact same size foot and purchased a 45 in the SIDI Adventure Gore-Tex about two years ago. I ride on and off road and these boots are the perfect fit for me. Well worth the price and the ankle hindge is the best I've ever seen to prevent rolling and probably breaking your ankle in those moments when you really have to put a foot down. They needed a little oil when I first got them to stop a squeak but after that I've never had an issue. Sep 26, 2013

As far as keeping your feet dry they will absolutely do the trick, I was stuck riding in a two hour down poor with no rain gear, at the end of it the only thing dry were my feet. The only negative thing I have and others have stated is the squeaking noise when walking, if you don't plan on walking anywhere and just ride, you'll have no issue. Dec 4, 2014

These are my first pair of boots so I have no real point of reference.

Having said that. I have 12,000 miles in them and love these boots. I have noticed on hot days when I have to just sit in traffic they tend to be a bit warm. As long as Im moving I do not notice it as much.

I don't know if this is of any help, but I would buy these boots again in a heart beat.

Good luck.

Andrew S: Kevin,

I have size 11.5 and the circumference measured over the shin guard is about 17". It depends on your jeans and calf sizes. They fit under my pants. These boots have a thick toe and I had to add a 1" longer shift lever to my KLR 650 to accommodate my foot size and good boots. They are great boots, breathable and comfortable with good protection. You can walk in them. I went to these after breaking a fibula at the ankle for better ankle protection.

Happy Riding!

However, I see the guide here says that shoes sized 8 to 8.5 should buy 42's. Should I just go with 40's in this boot since they work in the Vertigo's, or do these boots fit about the same as street boots? I typically wear 8.5 to 9 in street shoes.

Kent S asked: I'm choosing between the Sidi Adventure GoreTex and the Alpinestars Toucan GTX. In the videos Anthony talks about the Alpinestar being very light weight, but doesn't mention the boot's weight in the Sidi video. Does anyone know how the weights compare? Also looking at the pictures the Sidi sole looks much thicker and stiffer than the Alpinestars, which would make the Sidi harder to walk in, harder to fit under the shift lever, and harder to feel the shifter and brake pedals. Pictures can be deceiving so does anyone know how they compare?

I have some older Sidi Crossfires and love them but now want a dual sport boot. The Adventure GoreTex looks like a bigger beefier boot than my Crossfires. My Crossfire weighs over 4 lbs per boot.

Matt F: Sorry, I have no comparison information. My SIDI Adventure Gore-Tex in size 46 are 3.6 pounds each. The sole is similar to Vibram sole pattern. I find this boot very comfortable both on and off the bike. I've worn them in a number of extended off pavement treks up and down hills and they were very competent and comfortable.

They do isolate feel much more than my SIDI Vertigo for shifting and braking but isn't a lasting feeling.

Randy S: I purchased my Sidi Adventure Gore-Tex boots for a trip to Alaska from Southern California. I have to say that, despite the heavy looking sole and the overall weight, these boots were very comfortable to walk in and had good flexibility. There is a compromise with these boots. They are confidence inspiring if one were to have a get off but are not as precise when shifting or braking. They are great when standing on the pegs during off road riding so It was clear to me that their purpose was for the adventure rider who is doing a fair amount of off road riding.

These boots were 100 percent waterproof but did have good breathability. They were warm enough in cold weather but not too bad when the weather was warmer.

I hope my experience helps other riders to make the right decision.

Tahi B: My first time wearing these boots was on a 2,000 mile ride in Alaska from anchorage to Dead Horse/ Prudhoe Bay and back to Anchorage.

Lots of rain, some snow, lots of mud and a little bit of highway.
These boots were comfortable and I felt well protected. Feet kept dry and warm even riding in temps below 20 degrees (crossing the Atigun pass)

I usually wear full motocross boots when adventure riding in the desert.These boots are much lighter. The Adventure Gore-tex boots are like wearing a good work boot. My feet and legs feel well protected in these boots. Way more comfortable than motocross boots. They are spendy, but to me they are worth it.

I ride 35/65 off/on road (KTM 990 and 690 enduro R), and wet or dry, hot or cold outside, these boots have been comfortable to both ride and walk in. No problems shifting (standing or sitting on the machine). I'd consider them fairly lightweight in comparison to other boots I have had in the past. I highly recommend them. Sizing is consistent with what a quality dress shoe would be for your foot. I wear 45 in ecco shoes and the SIDI boots size 45 fit me perfectly.

A shopper asked: Hi, i may have asked this question before but it disappeared. Apologies if this is a repeat.

I am wondering how much adjustment there is in the calf/ankle. I have a large calf and was wondering how wide the 46 goes?
Nov 14, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Steven P: I wear a size 43 and have what I assume to be average ankles and thin calves. For ankle adjustment, I am about halfway on the cam strap. The cam strap has about 3.5 inches of adjustment, so I could go 1.75 inches more on the ankle.

For the calf, I cinch it down pretty tight. I measured the widest point at which the velcro would still hold and about 2 inches from the top of the boot and it came out to 16.5 inches.

Hope this helps.

BTW, they are fantastic boots. Squeakier than hell, but just put some leather conditioner on the squeaky parts and you'll be good for 6+ months of ninja-like stealth.

William L: slight clarification from posterboy's answer ... the stitching you see on the boots is for the midsole and that would stay 'connected' if you resole. the outsole is glued like most standard boots and, as robert n says, can be peeled off and replaced with a vibram or any other sole in fact (as long as it isn't a 'bolt on' sole that some boots are using).

I've recently purchased these boots. Love 'em, fit is great, they've proven waterproof already. My one question is ... what can I do to de-squeak them? They are EXTREMELY SQEUAKY. It's very conspicuous.

Anand S: Ha Ha! Same here. I've used silicone spray and that helps to quiet them down a bit but then it wears off and you do it again. I've just gotten used to the squeak! I'd suggest NOT using WD40 as I've heard that it can harm the boot material. Hope this helps. Jul 15, 2015

MICHAEL A: I have used leather conditioner on the plastic & leather bits around the ankles. Helps quite a bit. Have had to reapply several times but it works. My boys would refer to me as Sponge Bob when I would walk by. That's OK though. They are great riding boots. Jul 15, 2015

Steven H asked: I do want Gore-tex and I have been looking at the Adventure and Armadas. I am probably 90/10 street/off road, but I am hoping to go to a Rawhyde class later this year. I have read various reviews but none stipulate the height of the boot. I have not seen these in person as yet. I am trying to decide if the Armadas would be strong enough for the non-street that I do. I realize the benefits of the hard parts on the shin protection but was curious as to the height difference on the two boots. I tried watching the two Revzilla video reviews but it appears the reviews were done on different tables (possibly different heights) so I wanted to check. What is the height difference between the Armada and the Adventure? Jun 10, 2014

Scott R: I can't answer the height difference specifically (I bet two inches at least though). I have the Adventure Rain Goretex and use on dirt roads. Completed 3500 miles in rain, snow, and mud including the entire Trans Lab last year. The boots were warm and dry. When I first got them I dropped a 1200 GSA right on my ankle on a clay sub-surface. If I hadn't had them my ankle would have been crushed. Looking at the Armadas I don't think you'd have the right tread for the Rawhyde class. If you're pushing the bike I'd think you'd want the more aggressive bottom of the Adventure and the additional armor when (yes "when", not "if)" you dump the bike. I did the GS Trophy Qualifier with them and I'd say they were an integral component it terms of having the right gear.

Steven H: Thanks Scott. The comment about dumping the bike is full on. Managed to do that already. So, I can definitely see the benefit of having the hard parts. I had heard a lot of comments on shin protection. I think Anthony hits that pretty strong in his video review. So, that is why I was wondering about the height difference. On the soles, looking at the details on the Sidi site, the Armada and the Adventure appear to share the same sole (at least the pictures of the bottom of the boot lug pattern appears to be the same). So I guess at this point I am trying to decide on whether it is better to have the higher shin/hard parts protection or whether to go for the versatility (possibly better comfort on daily commutes). Thanks again. Jun 11, 2014

A s: I own a pair of the Sidi Adventure Gore-Tex boots.
The highest point of the boot is at the front - no surprise there.
My size 9 measures 14.5 inches tall.

The knee pads on the front of my riding pants meet up with the top and in some cases overlap, depending on my stance on the bike. A taller boot would NOT improve protection in my case, With a 32 inch inseam my shins and my knees are covered. A taller boot might even be more awkward.

For off road use I have no problem wading into 12inches of mud or water.
The design offer EXCELLENT protection for everything except motocross use. And I've had a few hard knocks with these boots off road - again no problem.

I hope this helps.

A shopper asked: RevZilla, is this boot a lot different than the Adventure Rain version? What is the real advantage to this boot over the Adventure Rain? Does the Gore Tex really make much of a difference? Oct 20, 2015

Michael M: I have had these boots for three seasons and can not make enough positive comments about them. The fit was spot on right out of the box, no break in period at all. I don't hike in them but that's not what they are designed for. I have ridden in all kinds of weather, sleet, snow, drizzly and downpours (that was within 2 hours in July in the Colorado mountains) and my feet have never been wet, therefore never cold. Do the boots squeak, yes, have I attempted so solve that issue no, don't care. Construction is first rate, I can not speak to the advantages over the Adventure Rain other than to say if money is spent on this product you will never regret the purchase. Oct 20, 2015

Frank C: Cannot speak to the Adventure Rain, but the Gore Tex is excellent. Have numerous boots and by far and away, my favorite pair. Spent 14 hours in moderate to heavy rain 2 weeks ago. The only place not wet was under these boots, not a drop of water on socks. And the security of these boots is comforting, no concerns. I would not trade down. Oct 20, 2015

michael a asked: OK, just got these boots in the mail. I can't for the life of me figure out how to adjust the straps running across the top of the boot. I think I know how but I don't want to break them because I may need to exchange for a smaller size (won't know until I adjust the straps correctly). What am I missing?!

A shopper asked: Gore-Tex guarantees these boots will not EVER leak.
I got 5 hard years of use out of my Sidi Adv Rain boots, but they leaked after just a little over a year.

My question is: If I spend the extra bucks on the Adv Gore-Tex, and they leak, who is going to replace them?

Leighton B: As far as I understand Gore-Tex will pay for the boot. Although I have not dealt with Gore-Texas with Sidi. A jacket I had was dealt with this way. I will say I have 30,000 miles and 2 years on my boots and they are still dry solid and comfortable. Rode through a cold rain storm a couple weeks ago and they kept me dry and warm. Feb 20, 2015

Keith B asked: I recently purchased the SIDI Adventure Gore-tex boots. These are my first higher than ankle coverage MC boots and I have a question about the adjustment/fit. I latched the boots pretty tight but noticed I can still wiggle my foot/ankle/leg a bit; is this normal? Should there be some play in the boot or should they wear like ski boots? I don't think I can tighten the boots much further and I'm a little concerned about the buckle breaking at this setting. Any fitment experience/advise would be greatly appreciated. Jan 7, 2015

David S: Hi Keith, I might be able to shed some light on this. The boots break in and loosen up a bit. Between two sizes, I purchased the smaller size and they broke in perfectly. I wear a US size 8.5 shoe and bought these boots in a US 7.5 (41 EUR). They were snug at first but provide all day comfort after the first long day of riding. They are awesome boots and I would purchase the same size again. I hope this helps. Jan 7, 2015

Robert R: Mine do not fit as tight as ski boots. I get some movement in the heel and ankle. It's lessened as the boot has broken in. You wouldn't want these too tight. It's a great boot. Two seasons. Ten day off road trips. Glad I've had them. Jan 7, 2015

A shopper asked: Nice video! I have the Non Gore-tex Adventure boots and they are extremely hot in the summer and even in the winter my feet are very uncomfortable due to sweating, will these Adventure Gore-tex boots breath much better than my current ones? I have 114K miles on them riding a GSA and its time to find some new ones that are waterproof. Thank you for your time. Marshall Dec 2, 2014

A s: My feet are not necessarily is the "sweaty" category, but I can feel the dampness at the end of the day. I wear a wool blend sock and "super feet" insoles. The fact that I could wade into deep water and mud to help my partner push his bike to higher ground speaks volumes - DRY FEET. Hosed off the mud later that day and they looked as good a new. Really.

So, foot perspiration is a very personal thing and everyone will have a different take on this. 700 miles in the pouring rain and my feet were dry. Sweaty as usual, but dry in the sense that no water was allowed to enter - zero.

I expect this to continue for the life of the boots.

These boots are hot in the summer. I can live with that.
These boots help to manage the moisture issue in the winter. I ride anytime it's over 34 degrees and I have not had COLD feet because of excess moisture.

Completely dry feet all the time - you will have to factor in the sweat.
My feet are a little damp wearing sneakers all day - these boots are no better and no worse.

All in All these could the BEST adventure boot on the market.

Perry O: I've had these boots for over a year. I ride KTM 990/690 machines year round in cold and hot weather. Exceptional protection and quality. I've ridden the alpine loop in Colorado and trans America trail across Arkansas in these boots. Very comfortable, good for walking. Great waterproof performance too. I have not had anything but a comfortable and dry experience with the boots in both hot and cold environments. I would recommend you be choosy about the quality of your socks though, regardless of boot.

My only off comment is the boots do squeak a bit unless you spray them periodically with silicon spray. Not a problem, just something to know.

A shopper asked: How much do these boots weigh? How do they compare in weight to the Alpinestars Toucan boots? Nov 29, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
TODD G: Not sure on the weight, but they do not feel heavy for me - and I weigh 130 lbs. Not sure about the Alpinestars boot you are talking about, but I have a different pair and the Sidi's are heavier. They are heavier than the Alligators I have due to the extra protection and they cover more of the leg in the front and back. The Alpinestars is also perforated for summer use. I am very pleased with Sidi's as I can use one boot for travel, hot or cold, and when I get to my destination. They have worked well in hot and cold. Although pricey, I think it is a great boot for what I want. They are rebuildable also. Nov 29, 2014

Robert R: The boots weigh 6.6 lbs on my scale. They're my dual sport boots. I've been on two longer trips backcountry with them: One 1100 and one 1400 miles, 70% dirt. Great support and protection; worn them in the rain, heat and cold. A great boot. When I strap them on, they signal my brain to get ready. They perform as advertised. I highly recommend them.

RyanMotonation: Size15shox!

I work for the US distributor of Sidi. There are a lot of sizes, models, and colors that Sidi can produce that we do not bring into N. America. The main reason the Gore-tex version of this boot does not get produced for the US is cost vs. units sold. Sidi brought into the country is made by production, not so much already produced and ordered out of a warehouse. If you purchase a Sidi boot today, it is safe to say that it was most likely in the hands of an Italian boot maker in Sidi's factory less than 6 months ago.

The Euro sizes of 49 and 50 are available in the Adventure Rain.

And I feel your pain man, I wear a shoe size 14, sometimes 15.

RyanMotonation: this is Ryan from Motonation, the US distributors of Sidi. The place you are going to want to go is linked below. If you visit the site you will notice this guy specializes in resoling off road type boots. He does all of our warranty sole repair and the only guy that Motonation stands behind his work. You will also notice on the site, no matter the boot, he only uses Sidi soles.


as for the warranty, I am not 100% sure. But I will ask. All Sidi boots are covered by a 2 year warranty by Motonation. The lifetime warranty by gore-tex though is not something I am completely familiar with...well the details at least. They are pretty pecular and strict in the rules on their warranty as well as the production. Gore-tex Sidi boots must be built with leather approved by gore-tex vs. the Rain models which are constructed of Lorica.

The construction and design of the boots must be approved by gore-tex as well, so I am sure the stitching of the soles plays into that some how. I dont know if this would be the case, but I have also seen resole jobs where the mold a new sole onto the stitched sole instead of unstitching the boot and restitching a new sole back on. If that was the case, I would see no reason why they would not be covered under the lifetime warranty after the repair since the construction actually wasnt compromised at all.

I will find the answer and get back to you as soon as I know.

MMasz: I've had several pairs of boots re-soled through the years. Any reputable shoe repair shop can perform this task and ensure they will remain waterproof. THey can also offer different compounds of sole material that might hold up better than what you have. However, more durable the sole materials usually have less grip. Nov 18, 2011
