SIDI Apex Boots
I chose these Sidi Apex boots because I was looking for boots that would provide good protection for street riding, would feel comfortable and look good. I'm completely satisfied with them! They are exceptionally comfortable while I'm riding, and also very comfortable when walking short distances. And they look great -- stylish, but not overstated. Also, they look like they would provide good protection if needed.
The fit seems slightly on the small side. However, when I tried going up one size the boot was way too big, so I ended up sticking with the size that I usually wear.
One minor criticism is that the insole is glued in. I needed to remove the insoles so that I could put my custom orthotics in the boots. This was difficult to do because Sidi used very strong glue. Fortunately only in a few places (i.e., not applied to the entire underside of the insole), so I was eventually able to remove them to make room for my orthotics. But this will not affect most people and in any case I'm not going to deduct a star for such a minor inconvenience when I'm so impressed with the boots overall.

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.

Excellent short boots
I was looking for a pair of boots to commute to work, with out using a full boot or a riding sneaker, and this boots are the perfect answer to my requirement. And you can't go wrong with SIDI, this are a nice looking boots.

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).

Great Product - Great Brand
I have logged just over 400 miles on these boots. The fit and finish work is typical Sidi quality and is matched second to none especially at this price point. I have used Sidi cycling shoes for over 20 years and have come to appreciate their long term durability and overall quality.
The ability to replace small parts from wear and tear is a great feature and the Lorica will no doubt hold up well overtime. Sizing was one size down from what I normally wear in the cycling shoes but Revzilla's return process is quick and painless.
The boots have great airflow and make for a awesome commuter and weekend riding boot. The only draw back is the lack of insole and carries over to all of their shoes. This is a somewhat non issue as quality insoles can be had for next to nothing. I have a small volume foot so this will help take up just a bit of wiggle room in the boots once done.
