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.
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!
A very nice boot with a little fitament issue.
I bought these as an all-around riding boot. I ride mostly pavement, though I may get into some fire & dirt-road riding this year with my Tiger 800. I was looking at the Adventure GoreTex at first because I wanted a waterproof boot with more protection than my 'street' boots, but didn't really want all the buckles and straps so as not to stand out as much off the bike when out in social situations, so I thought I'd try this new model. Note - I didn't buy these for the 'removable' outer cuff, which I thought was kind of gimmicky, and don't ever really plan on taking it off. I don't think they have the same level of protection as the Adventure or Crossfire boots, though, which is why I'm docking them a point in that category. Not really a minus, per se, but a boot geared toward a different purpose.
I've owned a pair of Sidi Doha boots that were a great fit and ordered these in the same size. The front of the foot pocket is a great fit. Not too long, not too narrow or wide (though I tend to prefer wider shoes / boots). There does seem to be a lot of extra room in the heel, though, and my heel lifts a bit. I don't have large feet, but never remembered having this issue with any other boot (including ski boots) that I've previously owned. I mitigated this somewhat with a $10 insole (which I may switch out for a 'heel cup'), but really wish the boot had a snugger fit in the heel out of the box. I don't have skinny legs, but these boots also have plenty of room in the calf, to the point I almost wish they could be adjusted snugger. They work great with pants tucked in, though.
I've ridden a few times with these, putting on about 200 miles while in the 40-50 degree range. They were a little cold at first, mostly a seeping cold through the sole, which the insole I added to adjust the fit (non insulated) seemed to help with. Now they're perfect in this temperature range with a pair of polypro ski socks. I actually hope they'll stay a bit on the cool side as the weather warms, allowing me to just change my socks to a lighter weight. I haven't had them in the rain yet, but looking at their construction I don't think I'll have any problem with water getting in.
Off the bike, the boots are comfortable and not too stiff. Fine for casual wear if you're not going to do any significant walking hiking. They're still relatively new, but do squeak alot. They're also very easy to get on / off.
Overall, I'm very happy with them, and hope they'll last me many years.

Great boots, but why the squeak...
The fit, finish, material, and attention to detail is excellent and what you expect for an expensive boot.
They are very comfortable for me and the wide toe box is a must have at least for me.
I wear them all day once I get to work and they are comfortable for the whole day.
They offer the level of protection that I want in a street boot.
I can't vouch for the waterproofness as of yet but if they are anything like the Adventure Gore-Tex they will be excellent.
Now for the niggle. They squeak. Nothing as bad as the Adventure Gore-Tex but it has gotten progressively worse as time has gone on. I am sure that Mink Oil will calm that down but it has not eliminated the issue on the Adventure Gore-Tex boots as yet.
Come on Sidi we know you can make a boot that will allow you to sneak up on a jack hammer operator, but this is not it...

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!
