SIDI Apex Boots
Worried It wouldn't fit
After watching the reviews, I was worried that this boot wouldn't accommodate my standard D size width. It turns out the foot bed is pretty good, no pinching or constriction. I had selected this boot for it's technical protection and that seemed pretty much in line.
However, I have more narrow shin circumference apparently than this boot is built for...which is more oval than tapering to a round fit, so it was a few sizes too big above the ankle bone so the boot knocked back and forth..sloppy around the top. There was limited velcro pad adjustment, essentially just a closure over the zipper so I couldn't pull the top snug. Moving back and forth in the boot at the top was disconcerting not to mention the test walk on the carpet kept banging my shin. The inside ankle protection was slightly too far to the rear to properly line up with the bone but the outside slider was spot on so that was also a consideration.
I'm hoping the full size boot I also ordered with the inner clamshell design will be more suited for a firm fitment as I want to concentrate on riding not on the slosh at the top of my boot distraction.
For kicking around the street, I'm going to try one of the newer technical shoes once Rev gets them in stock. Really appreciate the returns policy as I can see getting a good fit for any rider is a bit of trial and error already.
Had high hopes for this product. Overall, the build and quality of the product was excellent with no observed defects or other QA mistakes that I've seen on some other brands.

Really nice boots
I haven't owned these boots very long, but I really like them. They are somewhat comfortable to walk in if you're use to motorcycle boots. The only issue I've had with this boot is there is to much slack around the upper ankle portion. I found a work around, by folding my socks down to take up some of the slack. I'm a size 10 and I have somewhat wide feet, so going down a size won't work.

First riding boot I have owned. Very comfortable. Great amount of protection for a small boot. Look and feel great!

SIDI Apex Boots
I wear 12-13 shoe size and ordered euro 47 which fits just a tad bid snug but not enough to be uncomfortable. I ride everywhere with these boots and feels safe and comfortable in any type of weather! I even get compliments when off the bike. Style, fit and function. Very happy that I made the purchase.

Better than I thought
I was a little iffy about these boots when I first took a look at them but I am glad i bought them. If you have semi wide feet they will fit great. Easy on and off just wish they vented a little better.

The boots fit great. The replaceable skid plates are a nice feature. This allows you to just replace the plate instead of buying a new boot. One thing to keep in mind is that these are not full length boots. They don't adjust around the top so it may be a little loose around the upper ankle.

Finally a shoe for wide feet!!!
If you're like me with wide feet, it's difficult finding a normal shoe, let alone a motorcycle shoe/boot to fit. These Sidi Apex's fit comfortably right out of the box. I wear 4E width shoes and they're great. I've only had them for a week, so hard to comment how they'll be broken in, but I suspect they'll be even more comfortable. They're not perforated, so they can get hot. The little sliding cover on the sides don't do much for flow. I left one open and one closed and couldn't tell the difference. Sidi should have left them out of the design and saved us some $$. I was concerned about the footbed around my arch area being too narrow, but that's not the case either. Best shoes I've owned so far, I've had the Dainese Dyno and Teknic chicanes.

Very Comfortable and Great Looking!
I have been riding with these boots for sometime now and must say that I am very happy with my purchase. The removable sliders make me very confident that I would be protected should I ever go down. They are a bit strange to walk on for long periods of time, but then again...we don't buy riding boots for walking, do we?
