Sidi Cobra Rain Boots
A very nice aggressive boot for riding hard in all weather
My first boots with sliders. I get compliments on their looks compared to my old other brand rain boots. My other boots were warm and dry, but the outer tips wore out from road rash. These sliders take a hit without caring. And, if the toe sliders eventually get too worn, they are easily and cheaply replaceable. I have only had them out in light rain and snow wet roads so far, but they were 100% dry inside in those conditions. Their wide size is less wide than some other brands, but my 9EEEE foot still fits, albeit a bit snugly. Regular jeans fit over them comfortably, but can also be tucked inside. I am overall very satisfied with my Sidi Cobra Rain Boots.

I love these boots
Pros: Waterproof, decent breathability, good looks
Overall: I bought these boots with hopes that they would be a sort of Jack-of-all-trades bit of gear, and they did not let me down at all. Sure, they get a little stuffy and a little warm during really hot days, but I was impressed with how breathable they actually were. Also, I only had thin wool socks for the hot days. Something lighter would have been nice. I would not hesitate to wear these in any weather. I highly recommend them.

Great Boot from a Great Company
This is my second pair of SiDi boots. Love them. They are warm and waterproof which is why I got them. Being a European brand they are narrow and long. That being said they fit my feet well when I order a size up. I have super wide (4E) feet and big calves. I love the fit and comfort. Another Bang up job by SiDi

Great Boot, Sidi Quality can't be beat!
Simply Put, Sidi is a rock solid comfortable choice for protection, the water proofing stops a bit of airflow but that's ok cause I'm going to pick these up in AIR anyway, I don't think I'll be needing another boot for quite some time. All replaceable parts gives huge amounts of life to these boots without breaking the bank again!

After getting soaked a few times (even though this is California), I wanted something that would keep me dry. My original pair of Sidi Fusions didn't quite last 18 months, and the Vortices were a bit much for everyday riding so based on reviews I ordered these.
They fit pretty tight for a 46, but that's probably the lining. I've been getting poked in my right ankle by one of the armored bits, but it's been getting better as they get broken in.
As Sidi boots go, they're pretty subtle (all black/grey).
They might be overkill for around here, but I'm pretty happy. I've also got a low tolerance for cold, so those over the bridge freeway rides are a lot nicer now...

Plenty of protection for road riding, yet plenty comfortable for some walking
They seem pretty true to size. I haven't tried out the waterproof aspect, yet. They were plenty comfortable enough wearing around school for a few hours, not a ton of walking, but they handled it well. They don't feel like much more than a normal boot to me. Although, certainly have to get use to wearing them on the bike compared to normal shoes, just a trade off for the protection I suppose. Rated airflow low since it's a rain boot, still after two hours sitting in a 70 degree class room, my feet felt dry. They handled my 45-50deg commute quite well, 30 miles and no chills.

Comfortable and Waterproof!
Sidi does come a tad narrow due to it's italian construction. They are very comfortable to walk in and easy to get in and out of them. There's a lining behind the zipper to keep out the rain. No complaints on these boots.
