SIDI Fusion Air Boots
SIDI Fusion Air - Black - 10US / 44Euro
I bought these shoes as an upgrade to my previous basic SIDI Gas riding shoes.
They're a huge step up in protection compared to the Gas.
These offer all around foot protection including shin protection, in addition to ankle protection, along-with replaceable toe-sliders.
I haven't had much riding time in these so they're still breaking in but they aren't very comfortable to walk around in yet (then again, they aren't supposed to be walking boots).
They do run a tiny bit smaller so the fit is snugger than I would have liked it to be, especially in the toe area (I don't think you need to up-size).
I prefer to have more room, which I believe the competing TCX S-Sportour Boots offer.
I have to see how my feet hold up over a long ride.
Also, I don't think there's much room in there to add a comfortable "Dr. Scholl's" type insert
Overall these are excellent riding boots though I wonder whether they will be practical as commuter boots...

Light and airy
Lightweight and easier to walk around in compared to a full fledged racing boot. Fit is a little small so just wear thin socks.

Good Boots for the Price
While shopping for a pair of boots, I went with these because of looks, prices, protection and safety. It's everything I expected. Fitment was no issue, just make sure you go by the video review. I actually these boots for an entire eight hours while working on my feet the entire time, and had no issues.

Excellent, As Always, From Sidi
Just did a 2700 mile tour with these over seven days and had NO foot discomfort. They move a good amount of air, they're lightweight and protection is adequate. They fit true to size for me.

Very good quality as expected from Sidi. These fit smaller than other Sidi boots I've had. I'd go a size up. They do not vent as well as expected.

These boots are a tad loose
These are slightly loose in the heel and shin area. I tuck my jeans into my boots so its not a big deal for me, but it may be for someone else. Air flow is awesome! The boot is well constructed.

Great Sidi quality
Nice narrow fit that Sidi is known for, flows an incredible amount of air, and looks great. I wish the Fusion Air did not have toe sliders (the Cobra is just above for that) as I'm only using these for street and not track. All other protection is similar to a race boot - shin, ankles inside and out, heel cup, etc. I'm still adjusting to the heel on the sole as my last boots were flat, but I like the way the heel keeps my foot positioned for the brake and shift levers.
Overall, an awesome boot that fits my narrowish foot very well. I'll buy Sidi again.

I live and ride in Alabama, so once Summer gets underway one had best have some well ventilated boots. I have been partial to Sidi over the years, but these Fusion Air boots lead the pack of previous models for several reasons.
I have a wide forefoot and narrow heel, so I tend to fluctuate between 10.0E to 11.5D shoe sizes depending on the design. These Fusion Air boots in a 46 (11.5) fit my hooves NICELY. Some previous Sidi models have had a narrow toe box that reeks havoc with my wide forefoot, but Sidi has returned to a wider, more rounded box with the Fusion line.
Ventilation is plain OUTSTANDING! In fact if the temperature is not out of the 50's or low 60's, you might leave these at home and wear your non vented pair....very airy.
Design is OUSTANDING as well...protection, function, and looks...it's all there.
Shoes/boots tend to be a very "personal" thing due to fit, but these are pretty much spot on in siding for my previously described feet...I highly recommend them.
