SIDI Adventure Rain Boots 4.6 5 162 162
Wrecked in these - SAVED my foot and leg I had a similar wreck to Anthony's. A high speed spill off road. Embedded rocks in the trail punctured my engine generator cover and lacerated my knee, but the boot, which took the full force of the bike pinning my foot against the rocks, performed wonderfully. I had to go to ER for my knee, but not for my foot! Didn't even bruise! I love everything else about the boot too. When I get home from commuting I sometimes don't even take them off - just wander around the house in my Sidi Adventure Rains. I really love these boots, and won't wear anything else for street or adventure. The squeak is a bit annoying, but not bad at all, especially considering how comfortable they are. I wear a 10.5, and I bought 10s. Perfect. November 12, 2015
Out of the box random impressions. The euro to US size is accurate. I like that it looks like a regular (vs Euro) MC boot. It fits narrow but my foot is narrow and this not an issue. The boot is not too heavy. I will have to raise my gear shift lever. This boot is analogous to a snow ski boot. Be sure to buckle snug but not tight. There should be a little bit of up and down movement in the heel relative to the boot if adjusted correctly (as with a snow ski boot) The boots hurt the outside of my ankle bones no matter what adjustment on the buckles when walking in the house. When sitting there is no discomfort (which is what I would expect on the MC). I like the apparent protection as compared to a RE'VIT Rodeo Boot I purchased. If I ride it in comfort I'll up my rating as this boot as new is not made for walking and I'm not surprised given its construction. I'll give an update once I adjust the gear shift lever and ride. I ride an Indian Vintage. November 6, 2015
Bulletproof waterproof comfort walking and riding Love the boot. Felt very secure and instilled confidence in aggressive riding in the Alps. They helped me take Stelvio in one gulp. Only trouble I found was upshifting. Sole thickness and overall ankle stiffness caused several shifting failures and had to look down on a number of occasions to check my foot position to see why the gear on a brand new RT did not engage. Could not feel the shifter and hard time getting under it even after adjusting the shift lever up some. Boots are still pretty new and need more break-in. Adjusted my shift lever on my new FJR even more to accommodate boot. Not recommended for summer in Arizona. October 20, 2015
Very good boot - best of both worlds I love my Sidi Adventure Rain boots, for the money (which is not cheap) I got enduro type protection, with a reasonable comfort of a touring boot. it took me a couple of medium range rides on the highway and a couple of commutes to work to break them in and specially to get the feel of gear shifting and being smooth on the rear brake pedal. During this past weekend I put about 500 miles on the boots and they are way more confortable now, it rained on me, had to help a friend pick up his bike from a puddle of muddy water and my feet remained dry and comfy. It was a very good decision to choose this type and not spend another 150 dollars on the GoreTex version. Only suggestion to SIDI would be to put some type of soft padding on the top edge of the boot because its edge / lip rubs very hard on the calf even though high socks are in use. Other than that, I really really like this boots, October 19, 2015
Great fit. Good value Adventure Boot. I only have 600 miles on them so far, so keep that in mind. Fit is spot on. Same size as my Sidi cycling shoes. They are stiff, but that's the nature of the protective design. They are softening up the more I wear them. They DON'T squeak as other reviews may have indicated. Great soles for stomping around in the dirt once you get "there". They are warm, but that's what I was looking for since I live at high elevation and cool climate. Quality hardware works as advertised. Revzilla customer service and quick shipping make it an easy choice. Buy them! September 21, 2015
Exactly what I was looking for I wanted something less technical (read fewer buckles and wider opening) than the Chargers and Crossfires I tried but still with a hinged ankle joint for better ankle support and protection than my battered old all leather MX boots. These are perfect for my needs. MY only quibble is I wish they had a little better toe/foot protection and the Velcro top part doesn't close tightly unless my chin armor is tucked into them. But this was the best compromise I found for ease of use, limited walking and solid ankle protection. I only have a few hundred miles so can't comment on durability yet. The fit ordering a 44 is pretty much a perfect 9.5 length. It is a little wide for my D width. But that might OK when I go to winter socks. The 43 Charger was too short and too narrow for my 9.5 D. So, to me, the Sidi 44 is really their true 9.5. September 7, 2015
Caveat Emptor Bought the boots in 2010 based on the video review which states they are waterproof and the SIDI version of Gore-tex. Should have paid more attention to the details, because while they held out fine for a while, I was shocked to find out these boots are NOT waterproof. Living in Seattle, that matters a lot. Got caught in a storm outside of Darby, Montana and about an hour into a rainy ride, my feet were wet. These boots have about 20K on them and are well cared for. Have had several email exchanges with Customer Service and SIDI that have been very polite, but done little to address what was claimed in the video vs. the reality. Very let down by the boot and the quite frankly, Revzilla, which I find the most shocking part of all. Watch the video and the corresponding graphics across the bottom of the screen. August 12, 2015
great protection saved my ankle from damage first ride out.... Great boots not real comfortable for hiking but excellent for riding..and the ocassional fall down...LOL August 10, 2015

Michael H: I wanted an all around good Adventure boot. Warmth, Breathable, Protection, Comfort. These definitely do the job. Highly satisfied! Nov 27, 2015
Barry M: Son's christmas present Nov 23, 2015
Dom T: I love my Sidi mountain bike shoes and the styling of these are awesome. All friends that have rode these recommend them so I figured why not step away from the AStars for a chance. Nov 11, 2015
Gwynne F: Sidi brand says it all. Nov 10, 2015
M A: According to the reviews all around the place, these seem to be the best of both worlds regarding touring/adventure, as well as in price. So we will see when I get them and try them on. Sep 28, 2015
MATTHEW E: Squeekiest Boots EVER. Several years ans they and I will still never sneak up on anyone. Other than that they are great boots. Aug 25, 2015
Roy H: They were too expensive, the Gortex was way to expensive and I needed a set of boots that would keep the new Harley street 500 from eating into my legs. They keep the water out and the perspiration in. On cool days they are great. On hot days they don't breath at all. Jul 24, 2015
Jay H: great boots May 29, 2015
Michael C: Highest web rating - hot price May 20, 2015
Jessica F: Got great reviews, was on sale and my old boots were falling apart. May 15, 2015
Erin D: SIDI boots have always served me well in the past, and many of my endurance riding friends speak very highly of these boots. I'm really excited to give them a try! May 14, 2015
Lakiri H: Best boots on the Market IMO. Cost Less than the Gor-Tex version and are just as water proof! May 14, 2015
vladimir g v: best adventure boots I had for a long time,water proof ,comfortable and good price and quality May 11, 2015
Jason L: Have a pair of the Goretex version and needed a second pair of boots to ride a bike that is not at home so decided to try these and a great price. May 7, 2015
Raymond H: Protection and waterproof. Plus I got 25.00 in credit which made this purchase a great deal! Apr 15, 2015
Royce K: Reviews here and on advrider were consistently good. I chose over MX boots (eg CHARGER) because they didn't provide walkability when off the bike. ADVENTURE does. I chose over the DISCOVERY boot because ADVENTURE seems to have a little stiffer ankle protection. I tried some A*, but the SIDI felt more solid to me. Jan 11, 2015
Richard A: With a size 15/50 shoe, my choices in this adventure type boot are rather limited. After much on- line searching, I chose to purchase the Sidi adventure rain boots based on all the good reviews posted on Revzilla. It more money than I intended to spend, but the overwhelmingly positive feedback was the deciding factor.
Now, I just hope they fit as promised!
Jan 9, 2015
Jason R: Watched a lot of videos and read a lot of reviews and these seem to have all the aspects of protection, comfort and WP that I wanted. They are more expensive than other boots for sure, but these seem like "you get what you pay for", and as others have said, "Come off the bike once and don't get hurt and you've paid for the gear!" Dec 17, 2014
Jason D: Top shelf boots, not much more to say about it. Nov 1, 2014
David A: Comming off a sport tourong bike C14 and going with a KTM 1190 I wnted a boot more versital tan my Aline StarsMX5. What I wanted was a waterproof boot with a balance between serious protection and comfort. After a lot of research and feedback I finally decided that for the price point the SIDI's delivered the best all around package. Oct 26, 2014
John C: Good reviews and my son has Sidi Crossfires and loves them. Oct 19, 2014
K I: great reviews on revzilla. Friends recommended. Oct 12, 2014
Scott A: because it is sexy Oct 3, 2014
proctor m: Good protection and relatively light weight, less expensive than the goretex version. Sep 28, 2014

Daniel C: Bought them for touring, great boots. Sep 23, 2014
Perry K: Your wonderful way of video review of the item and user reviews....im a fan! Sep 18, 2014
James M N: Second pair I bought, I liked the first pair so much! They lasted 30,000 miles and four years....I still use them but they are no longer waterproof, so I bought another pair to switch into in wet weather, and will eventually chuck the first pair. Sep 7, 2014
Bob A: friends recommendation Sep 1, 2014
charles b: compliment other pair of sidis for a tad more off road riding Jul 28, 2014
roger o: Anthony's review. Jul 8, 2014
Thomas F: A friend had a pair and spoke highly of them. I like them too! Jun 14, 2014
Michael C: Needed to replace my wearing Alpine Stars rain boots which only offered water proof coverage, but no real protection for my feet. I ride a fairly large dual sport bike and have been taking it off the beaten path more and more, so I really couldn't afford to risk a fall with the limited protection of my old boots. Also didn't want to spend a premium for Gore-Tex; these look like they'll get the job done all the same. Jun 12, 2014
andrew g: Chose this boot and Revzilla since they were $80.00 cheaper than Motorcycle Superstore for my size. May 25, 2014
Mathew S: Rain proof is KEY!! Protection is triple KEY!! May 22, 2014
M L: Look sweet, water proof. and just what I was looking for.

luis roberto d: are you kidding????? really, are you kidding me? Apr 14, 2014
Brad S: Best adventure sport boot made, protection and walk around comfortable. Apr 14, 2014
Jon K: Fit style safety Apr 8, 2014
Bradley J L: Wore my BMW boots to Alaska in 2011 and after 10 years, they developed a small leak. Aerostich makes a nice heavy duty boot by Sidi. So I excised to go with the fancier boot. Love them so far Mar 22, 2014
James C: good reviews Mar 16, 2014
Kurtis F: I need a good pair of boots for ADV riding. I have a pair of second hand off road boots, and a second hand pair of street boots. I will be selling the street boots that are a 1/2 size too small, and replacing them with these. Feb 15, 2014
Chris C: Great reviews. Feb 6, 2014
Mark T: goes with the whole jacket pants Feb 3, 2014
Brian C: Supposed to be one of the best ADV/Touring boots on the market. It was between this and the TCX X Desert. We will see if I made the right choice. If not I will return and pick up the TCX Deserts. Jan 31, 2014
John P: I have Sidi's Crossfire offroad boots and love 'em. Protection looks to be first rate. Jan 31, 2014
James V: I'm an Avid cyclist (non-motor, 2 wheels) I've been a long time Sidi fan love hte fit the quality and don't mind paying for it. I'm new to Motorcycle riding, just got an Tiger 800XC. This boot just seemed to hit the sweetspot. Dec 4, 2013
Gregory G: SIDI name and reputation. Has met and exceeded my expectations. As others have mentioned (glad they did to or I would have returned) these boots are initially very stiff and squeeky (noisy). After 1 - 1 1/2 weeks of use they un-stiffened and became comfortable and usable.... Went to several streams and STAYED dry and comfortable.... Nov 28, 2013
Michael M: Was hit by an SUV in traffic years ago, riding my motorcycle in running shoes. My foot was ripped open like a broken melon. Since then I wear proper riding boots. These are a replacement for 10 year old Sidi Vertebra Tepors. Nov 14, 2013
Johnnie B: Purchased these boots for the protection they offer. I have used them during thousands of miles of riding in all types of weather scenarios. They are good boots and work as advertised. The only negative is the loud squeak that is hard to eliminate. I have used various treatments to eliminate the squeak, but it always comes back sooner or later. Aside from the squeakiness, I am well pleased with these boots. Nov 4, 2013
Stephen R. J: Waterproof. Good fit. Oct 29, 2013
Gary A: Appearance. Now that I've owned them for 3 years I'll never look for another boot. Amazing protection (first hand experience from major collision with a stalled car where my boot was between the car and my bike. Only bruises. Simply amazing! Oct 5, 2013
David R: I am very happy with this boot .I ride all year they are comfortable on log halls .I have don 25,000 km with them they have years left in them . I would buy another pair tith out a second thought
Cheers Dave

Guideboat: I just rode non-stop in heavy rains from Bangor Maine to just north of NYC, not an unusual ride for me. I find the boots comfortable and rugged, although new cushy innersoles are the ticket. However, these boots did not stand up to the ride and my toes were wet when I got home. Sidi warranty explained to me that the Adventure Rain Boots are water resistant not waterproof. If I sent them back they would put them in a tub of water and if they stayed dry for several minutes they would consider them as acceptable for water resistant. Sidi did offer to let me upgrade to the Gore-Tex model which are guaranteed Waterproof, which I accepted. They certainly wanted me to be a happy customer. I would say for short wet rides which I have done many in these boots my feet stayed dry. For extended riding, NO! I still think these are great boots. Oct 19, 2011

llsetter13: So far the less expensive version has been completely waterproof for me but I've only been out in one storm and only had them about a month. The true advantage of the gore-tex is that they are lifetime guaranteed waterproof and the breathability of the material is better. While the adventure rain is waterproof it may start to leak in a few months to years (ideally years) and sidi will probably not do anything about it, but if a gore-tex boot leaks you can send it back for a new pair usually...no matter how far down the road it happens. In this particular boot, without a replaceable sole, I went with the less expensive model because I'm thinking I'll be buying another pair in a few years anyway. Sep 5, 2011

VirginaGS: Well, both the ad, "Membrane equipped to add a water resistant...", and my personal experience say they are not waterproof -- not by a long shot. I've been using them for some commuting and occasional off roaring for about a year now. This past weekend I did about six or so big puddle/small stream crossings. No dabbing, no immersion, the boots just caught spray from the tires, and I ended up with damp (not sweaty) socks and feet. Since they are leather, I will probably give them a coating of snow seal or something similar, but if you want guaranteed waterproof, I would look to something with Goretex. These do not claim to be waterproof, and mine certainly are not. Dec 6, 2012

VinnieT: Unless you live in a place like Louisiana, or Seattle, where it rains more than 120 inches annually, I can't see spending the extra cash on the Goretex version. The regular version has a gator devise along the top (velcro) area of the boot that works great. If you live in a place like the UK, (the wife is from there, so I know of what I speak) you may want to go the extra mile, money wise as it's cold and wet most of the year. I love my "regular" Sidi Rain Boots. They are better than I expected... So good that I sold my other two pair of boots and only wear these. I'm a commuter and do several hundreds of miles per week.

Stalag13: Hi!
I have recently been wearing the SIDI Adventure Rain boots through some very impressive storm systems coming through here. I have to say, they are dry - as - a - bone! While my jacket leaked and water managed to get in through a few spots here and there in other places, my feet remained COMPLETELY dry. Now, I haven't been as far as running through water crossings yet, so I don't know how they will hold up when standing in water of any depth. For GENERAL riding, I wouldn't bother paying the significantly higher cost for the Gore-Tex versions. For anything else more adventurous...

...it may be worth considering.

pasomonte: Mine were very waterproof when I first got them. In fact I even fly fished a bit in them with no leaks. However, after a heavy summer of mud holes and 15K miles of ADV riding all over N. America they now leak even from just riding on the highway. Hopefully its just the seam in the bellows. They are still extremely comfortable and well though out but not very waterproof or breathable. As I said elswhere " If your waterproof/breathable boots aren't Goretex....They aren't Nov 20, 2011

Robert S: My boots' foot beds were wet after recently riding in a frog-strangler. This was the first time that they have leaked, and I did have waterproof pants funneling even more water onto them, so no complaints; they are great boots. I will apply waterproofing to the boot welt after I find out more on Sid's tanning process (silicone vs. oil based tanning). Nov 2, 2014

Lakiri H: Save your money! GORTEX is a great product but Sidi's version of the waterproof breathable material is top notch. The reason it is 100 buck more is because, GORTEX mandates that they be intimately involved with the design and manufacturing of ANY product that sports the GORTEX name. Hints, the extra cost due to GORTEX getting involved in the process. May 8, 2013

James C: I've found Lexol Leather Conditioner (Google, "Lexol Leather Conditioner"), LIBERALLY applied, effectively reduces (temporarily) the characteristic SIDI Adventure Rain Boot squeak.

My cobbler applied the product to my non-GoreTex Sidis with dramatic, albeit temporary, results.

Maybe the treatment isn't complete, and it's certainly not permanent (must be re-applied), but . . . I found the noise abatement to be effective, to some extent.

Andrew B: Not to be a smart ass but they just do and that's the price. I do take another pair of shoes to work or just tough it out. Some places I work at are noisy and its not a big issue.

Roy H: So far I know of three pairs of these and we all think they are great, except for the squeek , ps the gortex version make the same sound, but keep water out better. Mine stay dry for about four hours, but I do keep them conditioned to reduce the squeek. May 25, 2015

Robert S: Not sure on construction details but the boots have been very comfortable and supportive since taking delivery this summer. Their construction quality is comparable to top of the line ski boots and I am satisfied. Longest ride with them has been only a couple of days, but they have a much heavier and stiffer sole than my Tourmaster Solution 2s (which feel like bedroom slippers in comparison). They are very comfortable to walk in and much less likely to slip on debris or oil/gas than the Solution 2s.

I have a Wee Strom with offroad pegs and I did have to re-adjust the shift - the combination of wide peg and thick/stiff sole needed more clearance. They work fine on my street bikes with no change. I have been learning to ride dirt/mild offroad on the Strom (K-60s on it) and so have spent only short periods of continual standing - no more than 15 minutes at a crack and 2 hrs at a time. (More my own skill limit than equipment.) No complaints however - I would do it again.

Robert S: (con't) The boots' soles do flex a bit when walking, and I may simply have insensitive feet, but I do not feel the pegs in these boots after a year of riding. I don't perceive this as a negative - the boots are very comfortable when standing - but I am not riding a dirt bike, either. Nov 2, 2014
Thomas W: I don't spend a lot of time standing while riding ( not much off road around where I live), but they seem very comfortable when I do stand while riding back gravel roads. Never noticed any flex around my pegs. Nov 14, 2013

zman1968: Matt, I'm not a wide foot/shoe experienced person, and I hate to give you a wishy-washy answer, but here goes....

Long answer: The boot fastening design is almost identical to ski boots, so there is enough length in the ratcheting tabs to really expand the top of the boot. I have standard/narrow feet and I am usually a 10.5 street shoe. I ordered an 11 to allow for cold weather socks, double layers, etc and I have PLENTY of boot space to work with. My ratchets are adjusted almost all the way in, meaning I have TONS of ratchet slack for expansion. Not having 2EE feet, and going by feel, I would say that, given that this boot is indeed awesome (no kidding), if I were you, I would take a chance and order 1/2 to 1 size up for you to create a little wiggle room for your big dogs. That one size up combined with an excellent ski-boot type adjustable system *may* accommodate your wide dogs. Worst case scenario, RZ has an excellent return policy. Just throw 'em back in the original box, include all tags etc and send back for full refund. (I don't endorse or work for RZ; they've just been a pleasure to deal with, so I give any company like this honorable mention.)

Short answer: This boot is so great, it's worth a shot!

Stalag13: I have found that almost all SIDI footwear, whether it be motorcycling, bicycling or skiing, are generally broader than a lot of other comparable footwear. Which is one of the main reasons I buy a lot of their products, to suit my wider than average foot. The SIDI boots are VERY adjustable - within reason - and I have found that I am even able to wiggle my toes a bit! Sep 29, 2011

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
James C: Lateral support appears significant; hinge permits foot flexibility, but . . . side-to-side lateral motion appears contained by the surrounding structural design, to me.

Reply to James Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark J: The lateral support is there and with your personal adjustments with the cam buckles you can find a comfortable fit. They are pricey boots but you get a high quality boot and you will really enjoy them. The break-in is easy as well. Jun 21, 2014
Reply to Mark Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jason W: Super solid support all around. In fact, you'll need to wear them a good deal to break them in. The ankle's are very stiff and make for clunky shifting at first. After that, they live up to the SIDI name very well! Cheers! Jul 1, 2014

A shopper asked: Do you find these boots too hot to wear during the summer? Do they really let moisture out or is like wearing a plastic bag over your feet?

Stacy M: Yes they are warmer but not terribly so that they would be a deal breaker. The boots are incredibly well made, fit comfortably and are true to size. Actually the biggest issue I have with them is the noise. There's an articulated joint that separates the lower boot from the upper shaft, the joint squeaks a lot when you're off the bike and walking around. I figure if I'm ridin then I ain't walkin and if I ain't walkin then I ain't squeaking! Buy the boots and ride often Dec 15, 2013

Paul B: The Adventure Rain Boots are great for most conditions. They will give the comfort and protection needed. However, keep in mind they are not waterproof and if you plan on water crossings or riding in the rain then go with SIDI Gore-Tex or any other Gore-Tex product. I have logged many miles in these boots and very happy with them, but I did need to buy Klim Gore-Tex socks to keep the water out. Dec 3, 2013

luis roberto d: hello fella!
this boots are made pirmarely of genuine leather, and all protections and buckles are made of plastic, the kind of plastic that your car fednder benders are made of , it is really impact resistant and the buckles are designed in a way that won´t snap off, the outsoil is oil resistant and anti-slippery, they´re squeeky but there is a sidi cream to waterproof them and it reduces the walking noise...i hope this helps you
keep your wheels on the ground and your feet on your pegs....
Sep 30, 2013
Robert S: I just looked and there is no country of origin stamp or tag on the boot. The literature that came with them had Italy all over it.

I have ridden the boots only about 2000 miles so far - really just breaking them in - and they are everything that I had wanted; supportive, protective, and comfortable. They really are as well made as any ski boot I've ever owned. I am very happy that I purchased them and I highly recommend them.

Eric O asked: Hello All:

I recently purchased these boots and tried them out for the first time today. They were incredibly stiff; so much so that I could barely upshift. For those of you who own this boot - how long did the break in take? How much did they break in and what did you do to break them in? I'm assuming (hoping) that the break in is all that's needed because riding with these boots on is basically impossible for me now.

Thanks in advance for your comments.

Joel L: I used silicon lube from helmet visor for the hinges. And it took almost an entire season of riding to break them in. The best break in was hiking on a hot day in them. Although quite hot it turned out to be the best for molding and flexibility.

Hope this finds you well.

I love these boots, my only regret is that I didn't step up to the goretex model.

John M: I had same thought first couple of rides. Advice is to wear the boots and walk around - for a few hours. They will break in, especially if you flex them while you're walking. It took a few weeks but I used them on a ten day motorcyle tour in italy wearing them 8 to 10 hours a day and riding at least six hours each day and they were fine. Didn't miss a shift because of the boots! Jun 14, 2015

Carson S: This is an awesome dual purpose boot! I ride a BMW R1200 GS Adventure and the Sidi Adventure fits my riding style and needs perfectly. Ex. Just after purchasing these boots in Aug. 2014, I rode from Baltimore, MD up to Maine then across New Hampshire and into Vermont. Most of the time I was on paved asphalt but did quite a few hours on dirt and gravel fire roads. I even did several hours of hiking on foot in these boots and they were comfortable! It is true these boots develop a unique "squeak" after breaking in but it's a small price to pay for a great fitting, comfortable boot. Also, back home in Oct. of last year we had a full moon high tide and I spent about 30 minutes walking around my neighborhood wearing my Sidis in shin-deep water without a single leak. Jun 5, 2015

I want something a bit wider as my feet have gotten bigger with a bit of tread and a little more walk around comfort.

I wore the new adv boots about 6/7 time hoping they would break in and fit better. Too much plastic wont allow the leather to form to your foot. they reminded me of a pair of ski boots!

zenrider: Hi,
For the price the AS Scout is the much better buy. These are my two favorite brands. Sidi makes great products with excellent durability and comfort but I only REALLY love boots with Gore-tex. The Sidi Adv Rain squeak when you walk, are not truly waterproof, and cost much more, which would not feel like much of an upgrade over the Scout aside from nicer buckles. To get full waterproof, Sidi offers the Gore-tex Sidi Adventure which is an addittional $200 or so. I've had other Sidi Rain series boots and in heavy down pours over an hour they leak ... I mean your feet will be soaked in sustained downpours. If you want protection both products will be about the same. Just don't expect Gore-tex performance from either and you won't be disappointed.

Chris K: Just to clarify - both the Adventure Rain and the Adventure Rain Gore-Tex are fully waterproof. The difference is in the breath-ability. Gore-Tex ensures full waterproofing as well as allowing moisture to evaporate through the lining. For hot and wet riding conditions, choose the Gore-Tex model, otherwise, the standard Adventure Rain will suffice. Jun 27, 2011

A shopper asked: Appears to be a stitched sole, however would like to confirm the design. No direct info appears on Sidi's parts page. Aug 27, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (1)
Stalag13: The sole is NOT stitched on. Interestingly they have moulded the base of the boot so that it APPEARS to have been stitched. It seems that the sole is glued to the actual boot. The delineation between boot and sole is quite distinct and any capable repairman should have no problem replacing the sole.
That said, the soles are high density and I reckon they should last quite a while even with hard usage. I have only had my boots a month, so I can't tell you yet how they are travelling.
