SIDI Adventure Rain Boots
Great protection, relatively comfortable
Great boot, fits large for me but I have a relatively narrow foot. The insole that it comes with isn't terribly comfortable, I exchanged them for a set of Superfeet insoles and there is still plenty of room for a pair of bulky socks.

I like Sidi boots
I have older Sidi Crossfire boots and like them a lot, they have great protection, especially for when I lived in Moab and rode hard and fast. Now I'm in Michigan and mostly ride dual sport so I wanted a softer all around boot that will let me walk also. But I still wanted great protection. The Adventure Rain boots are exactly what I was hoping for.
The boots were comfortable right from the start, I didn't need any break in time. They're easy to walk in, and much lighter than my Crossfires. The Adventure Rain weigh 6 pounds for the pair, my Crossfires are 9 pounds. A tall / armored boot like this is going to be warm, especially with thick moto socks, but it's no hotter than any other boot I've owned. I haven't waterproof tested them yet.

another great sidi product
as an owner and dealer of sidi cycling shoes I had no reservations about purchasing their motorcycle boots. as usual sidi's quality and fit are outstanding. I'm nitpicking when I say that the toe box is tall and made it more difficult to shift until I moved the lever. as for airflow no boot like this has airflow so it is a non-issue. also there is the now famous (infamous?) squeak when walking. however, as with their cycling shoes, they weren't made for walking.

Bought these for the protection and armor against the Alaska Climate. I live up here in the summers.
These are my first boots to go along with my first Bike. KLR650. These boots were a bit larger than I had anticipated (I wear size 13/48), so I had to raise my shift lever. I have since bought an extended lever and that was worth it.
These boots keep my feet nice and dry. The other day I rode in the pouring rain and temperatures were low 40's. I was wearing only crew length cotton socks (cheap x-mart ones) and my feet stayed warm and dry. I kept thinking how cozy my feet felt in the boots. The rest of me was drenched by the time I got to my destination. These boots held up.
I do kind of wish i had sprung for the Gore-Tex boots, but like I said, first bike, first boots, I didn't really know what I wanted.
These boots took a week or two to fully break in. Once broken in the SIDI squeak reared it's ugly head. I am going to try some silicon spray and see if that fixes it. According to the internet it will. The squeak is annoying and I feel awkward when walking to/from my bike at work.
Two thumbs up, 5 Stars, 10/10 for comfort. They provide protection in all the right places. They are comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The other day (the day I was drenched) I wore them at work for most of the day.

Great around BOOT AAA+++
Hi, my name is Mitch and I bough t a pair of adventure boots. I've got to say that I love them. I wear a size 14 tennis shoe and I order size 14 boots. The boots fit perfectly, a little stiff but are breaking in nicely. I would recommend to anyone who loves to play in the dirt and go duel riding.

There are less expensive alternatives and there are more breathable waterproof options. However, I am thrilled with the quality and performance at the price point. It's exactly what I was looking for in a dual sport adventure boot. Incredibly comfortable considering the amount of protection it provides.I highly recommend these boots.

I use these when riding gravel and dirt trails on my GS. Solid boot.

Fits great right away
I bought them and the next week did over a 1000 miles in MO and AR. Fits great, rarely took them off even around the campfire. I think they break in fast. They can be a bit loud but then I am as well. Protected my ankles in a get off in a hog waller (stinking mud holes). Works ok for streams until you stick your foot into a hole to avoid a crash.
This is my 3rd pair of Sidis - rain, air speed, and now these. Great boots. If you like one, you'll like them all.
