Excellent protection in all day wear - needs some break-in
This is my third pair of Sidi boots, I keep buying them because the quality is superb. My first pair of Sidi boots were purchased in 2000 (Vertebra Race). I got a hole in them this year, and it was finally time to replace them.

I chose a lower boot this time (my first pair was a full race boot) and the newer boots have many great features. It has all of the protection (minus the tibia) of a full race boot - specifically heel, ankle and toes. I work in an OR where I see a lot of orthopedic surgery, and protecting my ankle and foot was the most important protection to me, a tib/fib fracture is easy to fix when compared to an ankle or foot! You definitely need this kind of protection in a boot, leather alone does nothing to protect your foot as a bike falls on it, or your foot slams into a sign or guard rail, or just from your foot hitting the ground at speed.

The boot feels almost slipper-like, perfectly fits my foot (I've got normal feet - no odd widths or anything), but until broken in, I'd get "hot spots" on my pinky-toes. Walking around in them for a couple of days was hard on the pinky toes, but the boots broke in and are good for all day riding and walking now.

I love the replaceable pads, the air vents, and the easy in-and-out. The zipper on my old pair lasted over 10 years, and I have no doubt this pair will as well.

Very comfortable, breatheable material, excellent protection and good looking. I highly recommend this boot!

Great commuter boot
I wear these to work everyday and I don't really have any complaints. I like how I can wear them out to dinner with friends without looking too flashy and also how easy they are to put on and take off. The toe area is a little tight for my wider feet but either they broke in a little or I got used to it. All in all, I can see myself getting another pair if anything were to happen to these.

Great style & protection
Great boots that recall the look of full racing boots, and offer similar appearance and features (though with a lower cuff and price point). They appear to be quite durable, and the adjustable venting is functional.

Foot area seems true to size, and stiff footbed is great on the pegs (but would be murder to walk much distance). Cuff seems pretty large to me, but I'm not sure you'd tuck pant legs inside them (mostly because they are so much shorter than full race boots).

Sweet Street Boots
These boots are a great choice for those wanting some upgraded protection from a tennis shoe and not wanting the hassle of strapping on a full-on race boot when you want run out the bike for a gallon of milk. I'd say these are excellent 3-season boots for moderate climates like Phoenix where you can wear them from April-November no problem without feeling the cold too much.

These boots fit fairly true to size as I wear a 10.5-11 street shoe and went with a size 45. These do not come with insoles so I slipped in a basic Vasque insole. They still fit fine (albeit snug) but I could walk around all day at a bike show if I wanted to without problems. I have worn them for about 200 miles now and at work for 3-4 hours at a time. I tried on the Dianese and A-Stars but these boots stood out with looks and quality even if they are a bit more then the equivalent A-Stars model.

These boots are high quality as are most SIDI products, good fit, and they look awesome. These boots are fairly low cut and do let the wind in around the ankle below my Aerostitch suit so if you want a winter boot go with a full-length cut boot.

Great Boot
I wanted something that provided more protection for my daily commute and the Apex caught my eye. I feel that I have a better chance of staying protected with these underneath me than some of the other boot/shoe options out there. While I typically wear a 43 (9.5) in Nike, I ended up getting both the 43 and 42 based on some other reviews. Glad I did. Neither of these sizes felt either too big or too small. Both were comfortable to me. However my foot seemed to slip a little in the 43 and I did not want to take the change of it coming off in the event of an accident. After all, I bought these for protection. What good would they be if they ended up coming off. So the 42 worked perfectly for me and I am returning the 43. Love the Revzilla return policy. Sure it will cost a little in return shipping but I needed something quick and did not want to play the back and forth shipping game while I found the right size. Also, the ability to put one size of each on different feet was a huge factor in deciding which size was the best for me.

Good commuter motorcycyle boots!
These boots fit perfectly on me. You're sacrificing shin protection for something that is a bit more comfortable then a full blown motorcycle boot, but the rest of the protective features are there. The only thing I can really complain about is the opening of the boot; it's a bit too wide. I figure that the intent is for scrunching up the lower part of your pants and placing them inside the boot. This would be to avoid your pants getting stuck on something. It's nothing major to complain about but I would have liked them to have some kind of strap to close the opening a bit in the event I am not using it.

Excellent Boot For Street Riding
I got this boot because I wanted excellent protection and to be able to easily wear the boots under my jeans. I looked at the Fusion Boot but it did not fit under my jeans.

Overall this is a great boot because it combines protection with functionality. Perfect for quick trips to the gym or all day rides.

Comfortable, Stylish Protection
When I set out to find a daily use boot I knew I wanted something with good ankle support. My top 2 choices were the Dainese Dyno and These. I went with the Dyno's to begin with as they appeared to flow more air and my friends all recommended Dainese. Although the Dyno's are great and are comparable to these the toe protection dug into the top of my feet when walking which led me to exchange them for these.

A little further comparison, the Apex's don't have as much soft foam on the inside and fit a little looser than the dyno's but I suspect it's because the dyno's have an extremely narrow design. The Apex's are stiff! you might get a blister or two on the top of your ankles.

I would suggest getting some nice socks with these, normal ankle high socks will be a little short.

Sorry I made three separate purchases! I just kept finding stuff I'd forgotten you have in one place! Duh!!

Miguel D on May 18, 2015
Working in an OR providing anesthesia all day, I know how complicated the foot and ankle are, and my last pair of Sidi boots lasted nigh 10 years with superb protection - so when it was time to replace them, I bought these and the Adventure Rain boots. They're both awesome. I use these less often though. I like the increased protection of the higher shin guard on my other boots. These may end up on craigslist, not because they're not awesome, but because they're slightly less awesome.

Tim H on Aug 21, 2014
The reviews were good and this shoe will fit as a good daily commuter and weekend riding boot I feel from the description. I have been using Sidi cycling shoes exclusively and expect their Moto boots to be of equal quality. If these work well I may plan on buying a fuller coverage boot like the Sidi Canyon.

Are these waterproof?
Amit P on Sep 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No. They are water resistant, so your feet will stay fairly dry if you ride in the rain, but if you submerge your foot in water this boot will leak.
Are the Sidi Apex boots cut small or a bit bigger? I wear either an 11 for smaller cut shoes/boots or an 11.5 if the cut is bigger.
A shopper on Feb 9, 2013
BEST ANSWER: They are cut pretty true... I mostly wear a size 12 but occassionally I need a 13 and I ordered the 12.5/47 and the fit was spot on. The 11.5/46 should be perfect for you.
hi im coming from the speed and strenght momment of truth shoes and mines have adjustability across the top for when the leather/shoe stretches so the shoe never becomes loose. it seems like theese boot do not have any adustability do you feel that theese boots will stretch too much with everyday use due to lack of adjustability to keep them snug ?
steven b on Nov 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Steven, not worn these a tremendous amount, but I would say in common with most European brands the width tends towards narrow. Also these are made of a synthetic material rather than leather so in theory they shouldn't stretch as much. Sorry to be a bit vague but Sidi is a quality brand and these are great boots so I don't think you'll be dissapointed.
Hi everyone, I want to know, can you wear jeans inside this sidi apex boots? Please answer my question, I really appreciate every answer. Thank you.
A shopper on Oct 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Not really, they are ment to go under your pants. I would get the sidi st or st air if you want to wear your boots over your jeans. The apex is more of a riding shoe than a boot.
Hey! Love your reviews. Question: Sidi Apex or Streetburner?? I'm a noobie, will be commuting to work, walking around, and I obviously want protection. Pros/cons of each?
Thanks!
A shopper on Sep 26, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I started off with the Sidi Apex and I wasn't satisfied with their ankle support. They will protect your ankle from abrasion and light impact but not twisting or bending. If ankle support isn't a priority I would recommend the Apex boots, they are comfortable. They don't breathe very well off the bike so if you have sweaty feet that might be an issue.

If you do want more ankle support, full size boots are just as comfortable and you can conceal them under jeans with relative ease. I wear my sidi st boots under jeans all the time without issue.
my U.S shoe size is closer to 10.5, a size 10 is on the tight side. with that being said would a size 44 or 45 be better?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They are great shoes. They're very stiff so there isn't any give. If you think you are between sizes, I would recommend a half size larger and then dropping in a cushioned insole.
Are these slip resistant?
A shopper on Dec 19, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Depends on what your walking in, I walked through water and no problem. But I work on helicopters and I was walking through our hanger to the exit and slid on a very small spot of oil, that being said thats not really were your going to wear them
Anyone with experience wearing these on long all-day rides? Comfort? Ventilation?

Hi Everyone... Question will these boots add alil height to the rider I am rather short and just need alil bit of extra height but cant really afford the Dayton boots? Or if you know of any boots that will give alil height thats not going to break my pockets?
Datleen V on Jan 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Don't worry about the height of the boot. Just choose whatever you like. Add insoles to increase height.
I bought the Alpinestars SMX 6 vented boot and found that I am a 9..5 in the shoe. Should I get the same size in SIDI or should I get a 45 like the recommendation? I normally wear a 10.5 tennis shoe.
Andrew H on Dec 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I wear 11.5 to 12 depending on manufacturer. I got a 46 in this shoe and the fit is good.
