SIDI Armada Gore-Tex Boots

The SIDI Armada Gore Tex Boot is two boots in one! Featuring a wrap-around upper with ankle support beams can be removed to transform the Armada from an adventure boot to a touring boot. Equipped with the world famous Gore Tex highly breathable and waterproof membrane to add a waterproof yet highly breathable barrier between the elements and the rider’s feet. The Gore-Tex membrane breathes more than any other membrane, thus the rider’s feet will stay cooler in warm weather with a Gore Tex equipped boot.

The Armada is lined throughout with a lightweight, perforated, Teflon-treated fabric in order to allow moisture to "breath." This moisture is quickly transferred to the top grain leather outer, which causes it to dry quickly with no mold build up.

Features:

  • Top grain leather construction
  • Double stitched in all high stress areas
  • Secure Velcro over full length zipper entry/closure system
  • Dual position zipper closure points to adapt to any calf size
  • An elastic panel adjacent to the entry zipper allows a bind free zip and improved fit
  • Full length inner gaiter
  • Nylon inner sole with removable arch support pad
  • Honeycomb elastic panels above the arch area makes for a very comfortable boot!
  • Exterior high impact heel protection
  • External and internal anti twist ankle protection
  • Internal toe protection
  • Cambrelle lining 
  • High grip toe shift-brake pad
  • Padded shin plates
  • Double stitched in all high stress areas
  • Stitched non-slip lug type sole
  • Reflective points above the heel

Like most, did some research and selected the boot for me. SIDI Aramda Like most other reviews: why did I wait so long to buy the SIDI Aramda? Yes, it is narrow. Yes, quality workmanship. Yes, soul is different that what I was used to. Yes, afterbreak in period, fit is pretty darn comfortable. No, waiting for the waterproof test - just haven't had the luck to ride in the rain. Riding in the heat and the boot gets warm, then what doesn't in 90+ temps. The entire process with Revzilla was awesome. Made a phone call to talk to a person. I'd pretty much made up my mind on which boot was going to be purchased. Boots arrived almost as soon as we hung up. Ok, might have been two days, it was fast. Glad I bought them and if they wear out, going to get another pair. July 4, 2014
Adventure boot and street boot in one! I have a Yamaha Tenere, and ride on and off pavement. I've seen too many people break legs with poor boots, and I wanted one boot that would protect me off-road but I could also wear for street cruising and commuting. This is it! I was dubious when I first got them (would REALLY like to see more protection on the shin), but with the add-on upper the ankle and leg protection feels really good. Remove the upper and you have excellent road / commuting boots that still fit inside your pants (even if they're not boot cut). Three notes - two just so you know, and one I'd like to see changed: The toe box is tall, and I lost a little feel on the shift lever because there's some dead space between the tops of my toes and the leather of the boot. I have to pay attention or I don't release enough on the shift lever and I miss up-shifts. It's not a big gap, and I fix that by getting used to the new angle. Removing/replacing the uppers takes ten to fifteen minutes. Gets a little shorter each time, really not that big a deal, and the threaded metal insert the screw goes into on the boot may rotate inside the pocket. That's not a big deal - push against it from the inside and you can still screw it down pretty tight - and I've never had anything work itself loose. Lastly, I would REALLY like to see more beef on the shin protection. Thankfully I haven't needed it, and there's no doubt this boot with the upper would be better protection that a single layer of leather (or less). But Sidi knows enough about protection to admit there should be a little more here, and if you fix this please let existing owners buy the new uppers separately so they can upgrade! As I said, I had high hopes when I ordered these - I was a little disappointed when I first got them (felt like maybe I didn't have enough off-road protection), but have put about ten thousand miles on them and I don't think there's a better option out there for what I wanted: one boot for adventure riding and street/commuting. PS: I have never had the squeaking problem. May 23, 2014
Great boots that stay comfortable on all-day rides. My first "dedicated" riding boots. Very comfortable for all-day riding. Good protection, not quite as rugged as the Adventure Gore-tex version. I will be putting plenty of miles on these on my GS Adventure. April 16, 2014
What a great investment! I bought these booths on bealf of the video critique of it. Beautiful booth. Nice to get in and out. I own a sport touring (St1300) and this booth is absolutely nice to drive with! I will not remove the upper peace since it is such a nice security add on! Of course, this is not a booth to go for a 5 miles walk! But it will be very convenient on a day to day walking use. I did a 2 hours drive with it in near freezing condition. Very confortable even there! It will probably be a little hot on burning days... but that's life! Very happy about... The fact that I bought it here at Revzilla and I did, with their help a great choice on the sizing. Love it! March 31, 2014
Great all around boot. This boot fits my riding needs quite well. They fit well and are comfortable. Have not had the chance to really test them out as of yet. Still very early in the riding season here. But first impression is very good. March 31, 2014
Nice boots Excellent combination of heavy duty protection with style in a boot that can be warn with jeans. Heavy protection so not something to wear all day at work or shopping but great touring boot. Size was right on. Only complaint is leather scuffed on first ride with gear lever scratches. Would nevertheless describe as quality product throughout. February 3, 2014
Great boot I recently wore this boot 8+ hours/day in all kinds of road and weather conditions motorcycling out of the Ecuadorean Andes to the beach and then back up and over to the other side. I was extremely happy with them - very wearable and versatile. I recommend highly. September 30, 2013
Good quality, style, ideal for touring. Right for it's size. I'm 11 1/2, usually, but wanted snug fit and no wobbling, so 11 was ideal. Traditional style. I wish they have plastic plate on front tibial cover.Italian design, way better and stylish then here American choppy looking boots. September 9, 2013

Marc Y: Great boots, comfortable, waterproof. Aug 19, 2014
Mack A: I have a Super Tenere and an FJR and these will work great with both bikes. I'll probably leave 'em configured for adv all the time though. Sidi makes sturdy stuff that looks great and performs as advertised. It's a huge convenience to not worry about wet feet when running through rain. Aug 16, 2014
Perry J: Best purchase I've made in a long time. These boots fit perfect and are sooo comfortable. My wife bought a pair for herself. Jul 24, 2014
Richard S: I read many reviews and determined that this boot will give me great protection for my style of riding. It is a Goretex boot and guaranteed to never leak for the life of the boot by REVZILLA and GORTEX! May 10, 2014
jay b: I already have a pair of alpine stars tech 8 boots. i wanted something a little less restricting and more comfortable. May 5, 2014
Richard F: Catch all boot, not to technical but more technical looking than the average touring boot.And gore-tex is a no brainer Mar 30, 2014
Mark R: I want a waterproof boot that will hold up to the rigors of daily commute riding along with some touring and adventure riding. I was torn between this and the Adventure Rain. Picked this one because it is a little smaller and lighter. A compromise no doubt but this one just looks more wearable for me. Mar 9, 2014
Dan H: Did a trip last year in the rain in my SIDI Adventure Rains and feet were soaked the entire 2500 miles, granted the rains do have about 25k miles of some hard riding on them. SIDI makes a great boots just wanted some with Gortex and the price point on these was JUST right. Jan 13, 2014
Max B: convertible feature with gore-tex Dec 5, 2013
A shopper asked: HI there,

Ive got a pair of Vertigo boots that recently fell apart and I'm looking to replace them. I'm looking at these because the fit on the Vertigo's was awesome but i have 2 main concerns.

1) Are these boots re-sole-able? My vertigo's soles came off, I had them repaired and they came off again to the point where I don't think they're repairable anymore. I don't want to risk this happening again given the obvious cost of new boots.

2) How hard is it to "walk around" in these boots? I do alot of touring and don't want to bring additional shoes with me.

Thanks!

Brian D: Hi Mike,

While I cant give you a 100% guaranty that they are rebuildable, I will say that the stitched sole is exactly like 3 other pairs of rebuildable custom boots that I have.

The Sidi boots are very comfortable to walk in. I removed the exterior ankle/shin protectors for touring which may add to the comfort. Also adding to the comfort is the high quality leather used, the honey-comb insert and the overall design of the boot for a perfect fit.

I own three other pairs of riding boots from other top brand names. All three will be in the next yard sale.

Marc Y: Hi

As to the re-sole-ability I think it could be done, will it be durable, that all depends on the craftmenship.

They are comfortable for short to medium walks (visit a museum, an attraction...) but the soles are too stiff for long walks. This feature of the soles for me is great because I ride off road and they are great for standing on the pegs, my leg fatigue has been reduced by half since I wear these boots.

Hope this can help you.

Steve S: Mike,

Have had these boots just 6 months and 6000 miles. They are advertised to be re-soleable and from the look of the construction, I would agree they should be.

I recently was on a three day St. Jude Charity Ride from Peoria to Memphis and back. During the ride we hit about four hours of heavy rain. These boots performed perfectly and kept my feet dry while many of the other riders were complaining of wet feet. Also on this ride I walked around while taking the St. Jude hospital tour. No problems. These boots are heavy when compared to my old road racing style boots, but they provide so much more protection and a sole that helps me grip different parking lot material on my Harley.

I am happy with these boots and like most boots, they actually fit better after getting good and soaked in the rain.

Marvin W: 1). Not sure; the pictures may provide a view to help you access being able to replace the soles.
2). This boots are easy to walk around in. They don't squeak. They are so comfortable I wear them as a work boot while chopping fire wood. I stopped bring extra shoes after purchasing the SIDI Armada boots.

Jonathan D asked: How tall is this boot inside (heel cup to top of the side and/or back) for your boot size? Aug 7, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
John D: First I should tell you that I'm very pleased with the boots. I ordered and returned 7 other brands before I found one I liked. My boot is a size US 10/EUR 44 (I wear a size 11 Nike running shoe and size 10.5 military boot).

Measured on the inside at the rear of the boot from the base of the heel, the boot is 10.5 inches tall. That measurement is the same up the back of the boot, from the welt (point where the sole is attatched to the boot). They are about an inch taller on the shin.

The boots are well vented, but I have not gotten them wet yet. My calves are thin and I have enough room to wear jeans tucked into the boots or over top. VERY easy to get in and out of quickly.

Jose T: sorry for the delay. Size 44.
i measured from the middle part of the heel to the top of the boot. Outside measurement 12.25" inside measurement 11.00". The boots give you a good 1.25" lift. Very comfortable. One thing. I purchased a gel heel insert to help out with the transfer of vibrations. Again great boot.

Jonathan D: Thank you for your reply. Is there any chance I could trouble you to stick a ruler in the boot heel and post the measurement here (along with the boot size #)? I have extremely long legs for my shoe size, so trying to figure out how far these would actually come up my leg compared to my current boot (i.e., how they'll interfere with my existing shin armor). Aug 9, 2013
Jason P: About 10 1/2" in the back and about 12" at the side. Size 44. Hope this helps. Aug 11, 2013

Lee M asked: Ok, what are you guys using to clean these? I've had a pair for a year now and am loving them, but they need a good cleaning and maybe polishing, but I'm afraid of clogging up the Gore-Tex. Is saddle soap OK to use? Apr 28, 2014

Brian K. N: What I use is a high end leather oil and I use a horse brush to put it on . As long as you do not use silicone of any kind you shouldn't seal it in fact I have had gortex shoes and boots for years and I use "water proofer " by sofsole to water proof them without silicone

James K asked: I hope someone can help with this as I'm going to be shipping these boots overseas so the great Revzilla return/exchange policy is really not a viable option (too expensive) in my case. The Armada boots are not available here in Japan so I have no way to try these on.

I want to purchase a pair of the Sidi Armada Gortex boots, but am quite concerned about the sizing. The sizing chart here provides little help as my foot is typically size 10 US/44 or 44.5 EU.

I currently have a pair of A* Toucan Boots in size EU 44.5/ US 10, and they fit me great, I've also owned a few pairs (in different styles) of TCX boots in size EU 44/US10 and they fit well.

However, after having tried some version of a Sidi touring boot, a race boot and Sidi Adventure boot, it is clear that the Sidi size EU 44 is too small for me, with my big toe touching/pushing up against the toe cup and the width being a bit tight (but this would stretch in a leather boot). I was able to try the touring boot in the Sidi size EU 45 EU/US 11 and that felt ok in the width and a little bit of space in the toe area.

My concern is that having spoken with the Revzilla customer service about the Armada boots I was told that these are true to size, however, 3 different other Sidi boots I've tried certainly do not appear to be true to size so why would the Armada boots be true to size?

** I'd be grateful to hear from anyone here who is a size EU 44/44.5 / US 10 has tried/owns the Sidi Armada boots and what size in the Sidi Armada is a good fit for you?

Dennis C: All I can add is that I wear a size 42/US 9 in my normal hiking boots and ordered a size 42 Armada. Upon receiving them I tried them on and was on the phone setting up a return. Size 43 fit my size 9 foot perfect. Would lean towards ordering the next size up, especially if the other Sidis you've tried are snug. You can always add an insole, but making extra room is not going to work. I am extremely satisfied with these boots, now that I have the correct fit. Mar 7, 2014

James P: You are correct about SIDI sizing.
I am a true size 10.
I have a pair of SIDI Vertigo boots that are a size 43(91/2) and fit perfectly.
The Armada boots that I purchased are a size 44 and fit my size 10 like they should. I think a 45 would have been too large.
My opinion would be to get the 44.

RevZilla: Sidi Boots actually tend to run slightly more wide than a standard width MC boot. If you are looking for a Narrow boot, take a look at something from Puma, like the Desmo GTX Boots or perhaps the Dainese TRQ-Tour Gore-Tex Boots. Puma tends to be the most narrow, which might work great for you! Mar 15, 2013
