SIDI Adventure Gore-Tex Boots
Not so durable
I wore the Sidi Adventure Goretex for three months of occasional riding on my KTM 500EXC. The boots are comfortable and offer lots more feedback than Sidi Crossfires. Unfortunately, the stitches and leather failed where the boot contacts the bike near the footpegs. The half-inch hole where the seam came apart let in lots of water. I sent them in under warranty. They sent the boots back to me and would neither repair nor replace them. They deemed it 'normal wear'. I won't be buying any more Sidi Adventure Goretex boots.

Wow! Great Boot for touring and adventure riding on Tiger 800
Never have owned dedicated motorcycle boots, but decided to abandon my Gortex work type boots. Read hundreds of reviews and agonized over the cost of Gortex boots from the big 3 manufactures. Settled on these and have been Very impressed. Rode in 50 degree weather with summer socks and feet were warm and dry; also rode in 90 degree weather and feet were comfortable. Boots breath better than the older Gortex work books. Fit is spot on and quality of leather is outstanding. Support of the boot makes riding much more enjoyable. Squeaking is minimal. Would definitely buy again!

comfort and safety
I purchased the Sidi Adventure Boots to after researching several adventure forums . I rode the Trans-America Trail from Virginia Beach Va. to Oregon and returned via the northern tier states. The trip lasted 6 weeks and covered just over 10,000 miles.
The Sidi boots were supremely comfortable in all conditions and saved me from a broken foot in Colorado when my foot got caught between the hard pannier and ground in a low speed crash.

Great muti use boot
These boots are comfortable and do exactly what I need them to.
After breaking my ankle I purchased these boots. I wanted something for protection on the motorcycle and help me while recovering from the break.
I have had the boots for a couple weeks, used them around town a few times, on the track once, and many hours walking around at work.
For the broken ankle:
I wanted something that is rigid and comfortable. I have worn these boots all day at work 50/50 siting/standing and feet were not sore. The Gore-Tex must be doing it’s job great, my feet do get warm but not overly Hot and sweaty. After 8 hours at work then ride home on a close to 90+ degree day stuck in rush hour traffic, when taking them off when I get home my socks are only slightly damp from sweat. My last riding boots were 100% leather and when I got home my feet would be soaked in sweat. Gore-Tex is working amazing for me. Glad I paid the extra for the Gore-Tex version of this boot.
While I would not recommend the boots for strictly walking boot. For a boot with this much protection I would have a hard time imaging better.
I do a Lot of riding. In the Summer time motorcycle becomes my primary transportation. I also have a 2nd bike (GSXR) I use for track days. The boots are fine for the commuting, but would be better suited to occasional Adventure/off road riding then track day. They are a little big and stiff for quick shifting on the track. I am sure I will get used to them and I am not racing, so with the recovering broken ankle I will put up with a little clumsy shifting in favor of the protection.
I only run in to a couple references to “the SIDI Squeak”. There is NO sneaking up on anyone with these boots. I have had comments when walking around the office spaces “wow those are loud boots”. We will see if this changes over time, I am not expecting it to change too much. It’s rubberized plastic and leather sliding over each other as the boot & hinge flex, unless you put something between them I would think it’s always going to be like that.

I was a little worried about buying such an expensive boot on-line , but when I got them, they were perfect. The fit was spot on !! My feet just melted when I put them on , no break in what so ever.
I have not had a chance to ride with them in the rain yet to see if the water 'proofness' is what they claim , I will keep you posted on that. Italian's know how to make boots !!
Thanks Anthony for a great review , you were bang on and I am going to get many years of great riding in them.
Thanks Revzilla for the great service.
