Definitely a good buy
Bike: 2008 Yamaha R6
I had the opportunity to try this boot out withother boots and riding shoes (Dainese C2B) at the Revzilla store in Philly. For me this one stuck out as the most reasonable choice without compromising on the safety aspect.
COMFORT AND BIKE INTERFACE
I have been riding in these boots for about 2 weeks now. I feel very comfortable in these boots and the way they are designed makes it really easy to work the controls on a sports bike. When I am on the balls of my feet they provide really good grip on the pegs even on bumpy roads. The boots provide a good balance between giving you feedback from the pegs without transferring all the vibrations to your feet. Shifting is also very easy with these boots. The heel provides a good and positive support while pivoting the feet underneath the shift lever. The heel also comes in handy to prevent my body from moving to far forward when braking. That being said I will say this that I hardly ever brake hard.
In the short time that I have worn these boots I have not experienced adequate airflow. But I am currently experimenting with different socks to see if it affects the airflow. I usually wear thick athletic socks. So that could be the problem.
I would NOT think that this will be a good boot for cruisers though.
Fingers crossed I have yet to go down so I cannot speak for actual safety features of the boot. However given their construction it does provide a lot of peace of mind. They do provide quite good protection for the shin, ankle and heel. I am rest assured that if I did go down none of the bones below my knee are going to be sticking out or bruised. The adjustable velcro strap around the calves help with securing the boots properly. One of my calves is thicker than the other so this feature comes in really handy. And snug fitting gear just makes the rider more confident in his/her gear.
All in all I like this boot for my daily commute on the sports bike. I am not a track rider so I wouldn't know if it's good for the track. But it does provide quite a few technical features to the keep the street rider safe and in control of his/her bike.

Great summer boot
I really like these boots so far. The air flow is great on them, I can actually feel it when I'm riding. I haven't spent too much time riding in 80+ weather yet but I'm sure they'll perform well.
The protection is substantial, more so than other boots I've worn. The boots are fairly narrow which isn't much of a problem for me but it is noticeable. They are decent to walk around in off the bike but they aren't great like a more touring oriented boot would be.
Overall I'm very happy with them and I'm looking forward to beating them up them summer.

My First Riding Boots, No regrets
The SIDI Fusion Air are my first riding boots. I am a beginner rider and true believer of ATGATT. I wanted riding boots that were mainly meant for riding in the summer.
I was stuck between these boots and the Cortech. However the Cortech's did not have my size available in stock, so I just went with purchase of these SIDI boots.
I am SO glad I had went with these boots. People weren't kidding when they said the build quality on these boots are excellent. Has ample amount of airflow, and although they are a bit narrow and tight fitting, they are comfortable enough for riding and quick stops to stores.

I originally bought the AStars Net Air boots and found them to be uncomfortable, so I did some research and found really good comments about the SIDI Fusion Air. I wear a 10.5 in Nike so since the choice is either 10 or 11 in the SIDI, I got the 11. They are fantastic. Very good quality and they feel like they are broke in right out of the box. They look very good, a little aggressive, but not too much. For me, these are great. I ride around town in the Kansas City area and will do some touring this summer. I have heard they have good air flow and I will be finding out in 100 plus this summer.

Love these boots!
Very comfortable boots--both on the track and in between runs walking the paddock. Boots fit true to size plus these were the only boots that could accommodate my calves. I couldn't even get the zipper pulled up on two other brands I tried.

Fantastic starter boot.
The SiDi Fusion Air boots are my first pair of motorcycle boots, and I love them. I feel a lot safer and more comfortable riding now than when I was only wearing tennis shoes. I wasn't crazy about dropping $200 for a pair of boots, but $200 is a drop in the bucket compared to possible medical costs of a broken ankle/shin/foot etc. The air flow is superb for summer riding, though I'm afraid when it gets cooler out in the fall I'll need some thick socks to keep my feet warm. Overall I highly recommend these!

Very nice for the price, but a bit narrow
I really like the boots, especially for something between a touring boot and a track boot. Unfortunately they seem to run a bit narrow (or I've just got wide feet). Hopefully these break in after a few long rides!
