Great Boot
This pair of SIDIs is a huge upgrade from the pair of Nike Free 7.0s that I was riding in. Anyhow, the Cobras were delivered too late last Monday to try them out so I made sure to make time over the next week and a half to really break them in. After 450 + miles on an XR 400 the boots have broken in very nicely and I really stand by my purchase. I wanted to buy the SIDI Vertigo Mega boots but come purchase time they seemed too overkill and expensive for the type of riding I do so I went w/ the Cobras. With that being said the Cobras really perform well on the XR, and this is exactly what I need ripping through the back roads and city streets of South Eastern PA.

To cut to the chase, the Cobras are very comfortable while on and off the bike. I have done quite a bit of walking in them w/ no hot spots to speak of.

If I had to be critical I would say that the shifter pad on the left boot could use just a little bit of padding in between the plastic and boot surface to make long hard shifting rides easier on the top of my foot.

These boots have a very stable and secure fit which is very reassuring in the case of an accident because I am confident that my feet and lower legs won't get mutilated. I particularly like the design and feel of the calf protector area because of the generous sizing and functionality. I can tuck my pants in if I want or leave them over the boots. Either way the fit is perfect.

The boots’ ventilation is outstanding for summer riding but I already know that come cold weather I won't be wearing them because the wind blows right through them.

I am very satisfied w/ these boots so far and am anxious to see what they look and feel like six months from now.

Entry level. Look elsewhere for Trackdays.
I have about 500 or so miles in these boots which are my first dedicated motorcycle boots. Protection is on par with Sidi's standard which are some of the best in the Industry. They have hardly worn looks, but they are broken in very well and comfortable in the riding position. The price point is about average I would say at this level but I am yearning for the next level. I suspect that a rider will get plenty of years and mileage out of them. I can't really say if they are track capable but in my little experience I am not expecting them too. See below.

Pros:
Finish is excellent. Well made and durable.  Adds confidence to your abilities.
Protection is on par at this level. Toe sliders are easy to remove and change out. 
Heel cup just as easy.
Stylish. Sidi always has a keen eye for this.
Heel and sole are durable and flex just enough for positive feedback on the pegs in the twists.  Easy to slip in and out of.

Cons:
The size is about 1/2" large or thereabouts. I would try them on before you buy. I wear thick knee high snow socks to compensate. I'm a regular 12 and they seem loose.
Ankle area feels a tad loose and may be size related per above but not noticeable on the pegs.  No arch support.  No big deal.
They do not feel tight in the calf area as mentioned by others. The zipper covers about 2/3 and then a Velcro flap. You'll never get it tight enough unless you are tucking pant legs and that will only last for so long.
They are not waterproof!

The bottom line for me is they will do duty just fine for out and about. I am going up to a Vertigo or ST for tracking my Buell and I will stay with Sidi. Just likely to pick one size smaller and with a little more race inspired enhancements.

good boot for narrow feet
i am trying not to give this boot a bad review based off my semi wide feet. my review would be the same if i had picked the right size. nice boot for the money. felt protected while riding. the toe box is cramped both horizontally and vertically. my big toe started going numb and ended my rides sooner than i wanted. i believe it is true to euro feet but not american. i wear a size 9.5 to 10 and got a 43. i have a set of dainese c2b short boots and they are a tad wider and more comfortable in 43. wish i could try a 44 in the cobras but decided to try a different brand. i have more of a wide foot than normal but its kinda right in between.

Surprising disappointment from Sidi
I really wanted to like these boots. I was looking for a boot that I could use primarily on the street but that would also get me through a few track days a year. I've not owned Sidi motorcycle boots before, but do own Sidi cycling shoes, which I really like.

First off, the good:

1. The styling is subtle (I bought them in black) and attractive. With the black plastic (toe slider, etc.) they are relatively inconspicuous when worn inside jeans. They also look good when worn with tucked-in leathers.

2. Decent protection, in theory. Toe slider is large and covers a lot, it's also replaceable. Chunky lateral slider and a solid (and replaceable) heel cup. A nice thermoplastic piece runs from the bottom of the fibula up and around the back of the calf. Good shin protection and decent protection for the bottom of the tibia. For an occasional track day boot, I think it offers the necessary protection without being overdone. However, I say "in theory" because the boots didn't fit me well enough for me to be confident that my ankle wouldn't be twisted or broken in a crash.

3. Lightly padded (at least relative to the Alpinestars S-MX 5), so they feel like they would be relatively cool on hot days. I tried the non-perf version and, while I only wore them inside, my feet didn't really get hot.

Overall though, I can't recommend them for my foot. I do like the adjustability in the calf. I have pretty thin calves and I was able to snug these up nicely around my leg. Unfortunately, they go downhill from there.

The ankle is very loose. They felt like a pair of new cowboy boots in that my ankle would lift significantly with every step. I think this could lead to a badly twisted or broken ankle in a crash. The toe however was very tight, almost uncomfortably so. I could not have gone down a size to try to improve the fit at the ankle.

I tried a size 44 and wear a U.S. size 10 in almost everything. My Sidi cycling shoes are also 44, so I don't think I had the wrong size. I don't have wide feet either.

Perhaps these boots would fit someone with a very narrow foot, and in that case, I would recommend ordering a size down to try to snug up the ankle.

Ultimately, the Sidi Cobras are a disappointing boot from Sidi due to the fit -- at least on my foot.

Very Comfy
I walked around with those in hours in full gear and my feet did not sweat or hurt whatsoever, of course they are most comfortable while on the bike. They are not too bulky, look great and shifting is no problem whatsoever. I have not crashed in them so I can not really comment on their protection value other then that they appear to have it in the right places.
There isn't much of an air flow since there is no vent or anything, but that doesn't matter since they have the wicking bubble layer that prevents sweating quite well. At this price point they could have included a little more protection and maybe an adjustable vent or two, but it is no big deal.

All in all this is pretty much what I wanted from a boot and would most certainly recommend it to everyone else.

Exceptional Quality for the Price
These boots have exceeded my expectations for an entry level race/ road boot. When I went looking for boots in this price range, I was fully expecting to find boots clad in faux plastic trim (claiming to be protection), and this was the case for many I looked at. But after examining the Sidi Cobra, I was surprised at the amount of detail and safety put into this product. It supplies some of the safety features provided on a pro race boot with the comfort of a regular shoe (for standing or walking). The Cobra is perfect for the over enthusiastic road rider, without being over-kill. My only complaint is, they run a little large- I wear a US size 12.5 (Euro size 47) , and ended up buying the Cobra in a US size 11.5 (Euro size 46)- so beware when purchasing online!

Great protection, wider fit and better comfort. Looks sharp
I bought these boots after trying a bunch of other brands. I am a once in awhile weekend track guy and avid street rider. These boots were great on the track and comfortable enough for longer street rides

These come in a bit large, especially around the leg, but other than that they are great boots with great styling and protection.

I cant decide whether to buy the Alpinestar SMX-5 or the SIDI Cobra, looking for comfort when walking and protection- thx
A shopper on Apr 24, 2011
BEST ANSWER: I've tried both and prefer the S-MX 5 to the Cobra. I have reviews of both on the respective product pages.

In my opinion, the Cobra may have slightly better protection in terms of hard parts. For example, the toe slider and shin protector on the Cobra is larger than those on the S-MX 5 and the Cobra has a lateral slider that's missing from the S-MX 5 (see attached photos, both boots are size 44). The S-MX 5 still, however, feels very protective for this level of boot.

The reason I prefer the S-MX 5 is that, at least for my foot, the S-MX 5 fits MUCH better. The S-MX 5 feels snug yet comfortable, while the Cobra feels very loose around the ankle but almost uncomfortably tight around the toes.

I'd suggest trying both as I think they're both good boots, the S-MX 5 just fit me much better. If both fit me equally as well, I'd probably have gone for the Cobra for what I think is marginally better protection.
These boots protect me from rain?
Juan M on Mar 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. The pair I bought are not waterproof, no Gortex, or the like.
Okay, looking to purchase my first ever track boot. I have a wide foot. I wear a 10.5 american, so I figure a 45 euro should do well for length. BUT, what brand/model has a wider foot vs. narrow foot? I don't live anywhere near a place that carries the various brands to try on.
I like the look of the Spidi xp wrs, but I think some of the tracks do not allow metal toe slidders. Are they replacable with plastic? I like the look of the Sidi Cobra too
Suggestions are welcome
A shopper on Jan 12, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Well, you say you have a wide foot, but you really need to be more specific in your question. Are we talking 'EEE' wide here? Notoriously, Italian made boots cater a bit to the narrow side in both heel and toe box. I have a pair of Sidi Fusion Rain boots and they fit narrow. However, I also have a new pair of an older Sidi boot and they fit wide - Sidi Vertigo Air. The later is/was Sidi's track boot. The Fusion is a city/street boot. You can still find Vertigo boots online. I got mine on Ebay. They are D-E width in my opinion. I've tried on Sidi Vortice and they again run narrow. I also own AlpineStar boots and they tend to be snug - again, an Italian boot maker. Sidi, I would tend to say, has revamped the standard way they make boots and to me they tend to be narrow. A-Stars have a better/more normal fit. They're 'boxier' if you will.

You say there is nowhere near you can try on boots in your area? Call your local BMW motorcycle shop. I am pretty sure they'll carry at least Sidi boots there. I'm in the Tampa/St Pete area. The Odessa BMW shop has Sidi boots.

Your best bet is just to order a pair that you like and try them on inside your house for the day. As long as they have not been outside Revzilla will exchange them for another pair or a store credit. Contact Revzilla and a couple other places that ship boots and get mutliple opinions from the sales staff. Most employees ride and give excellent input before you buy.

It's unfortunate, but boots are not a very highly stocked item even in places that carry tons of helmets and jackets.
Ok, thank for the feedback, you have talked me into spending more money, but I think it will be money well spent. I have narrowed it down to these 3 - please let me know what you would buy.
1. Dainese TRQ race out- they dont look like they have that much protection, but look comfy?
2. Sidi Vertigo-
3. Alpinestar - SMX- R

I know if I spend much more, I will get into staight track boots. I want to be able to ride to mall, or wherever and walk aroung for a couple of hours in comfort, but I aslo drive agressive sometimes and value the protection. So are input means a lot to me, so if none of these 300$ boots fits my standart, can you throw me a bone. Thank you for your time. DDD
A shopper on Apr 25, 2011
BEST ANSWER: I looked at all three boots. I tried on all 3 boots. Dainese TRQ race out 100%. Sidi boots are over priced for what you get. You will not regret your purchase! I agree in pictures they do not look so beefy, but look at ALL that shiney plastic, that is HARD plastic that will protect your heel & ankle in case your bike ends up on your ankle. The sidi and the A*'s boots still do not have the features that the dainese does. Its a simple boot thats sporty, yet offers such a great degree of protection. Please go to "Dainese Torque Pro Out Boots Review at RevZilla.com" on youtube and look at the $400 boot review. essentially you get the SAME SAFETY but save $100 because you dont get a gel sole and fancy shiney toe/heal sliders.
Does Sidi not make size 12? 11.5 is too small and the 12.5 I switched them out for is ginormous.
Andy B on Sep 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Don't know for certain, but every website I could find that was selling them indicates the answer is no. 46 Euro is 11.5 and 47 Euro is 12.5. There doesn't seem to be any middle ground.
