Nice boots, albeit a bit pricy...
Overall very impressed.
Nice fit and happy to be able to get a 12.5 as I think a 13 would be too big.
Not too sure how they will hold up as I’ve only ever ridden with leather boots previously.
I say this as I have a pair of SIDI cycling shoes, which developed a tear after a very minor spill, although being a synthetic material the repair was easy…

Fine solid boot!
Got the SIDI Apex boots after checking out a lot of different brands. The fit and finish is good. The adjustable vents feel made to last. Good ankle and heel support. They inspire confidence that in an accident, the protection would be there. With motorcycle boots it seems like you have to pick between something that doesn't let you feel the bike or something so thin it's doubtful it would protect you in a fall. These seem like they will be right in the middle after a break-in period.
Pretty stiff inside to start out. Usually I wear a size 9.5 I went with the 44. I dropped a cushioned arch support inside and they fit perfectly.

Good protection for riding around town
The first few times I wore this boot, I noticed that my toes would slide to the front of the boot and would make my pinky toes get squished. Once I switched to a athletic sock from a dress sock, the boot fit great. In short, a good riding sock will give good grip and padding. I wear 11US in every type of shoe imaginable and the 45 Euro Sidi fit well for me. The venting on a summer day made for a comfortable ride. Like Anthony says in the video, the upper cuff will take a few rides to break in.

Awesome riding shoes, though a little narrow in the toes.
I was pretty excited to see they were a 13.5 as I am normally having to decide between 13 or 14. They fit perfect everywhere but the toes. It cramps my little toe pretty bad if I walk around in them a lot. If your feet are a little on the wide side, I would suggest a size up, with some thicker socks.

I purchased this pair for a few reasons.
1 need to protect the ankles
2 dont want to break the bank.
I watched the reviews on revzilla and the general consensus was these boots are comfortable and nicely priced, this is true! I even got a few dollars off from my last revzilla purchase which made the buy even better.

I love these boots! The build quality is outsanding, the fit is snug so keep that in mind. I found the fit perfect for everyday commuting but I did put on a big pair of thermal socks for a cold morning ride the other weekend and found my feet going to sleep after an hour or so. I normally wear a size 12 and ordered the 47/12.5, they are still quite new so I suspect they will break in perfectly.
Also to my surprise I've found them to be pretty decent in the rain. I was in stop and go traffic the other day for about 45 minutes in the pouring rain and my feet were completely dry when I got home. A nice surprise!

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.
