SIDI Fusion Boots
Strange fit... stylish, stiff....
Great looking, sturdy boot. Moderately priced. Good value.
The fit, in my opinion, is actually on the large side. I bought a 44 and I am a US size 10.5. However, my heel has so much room and sits so far from the back of the boot, it almost feels as though my foot will slip out. Its not "uncomfortable" per se, but the weird thing is that it feels like my toes are pressed up quite far towards the tip of the boot. Very weird fit.
I will also say that the stiffness of this boot has made upshifting VERY tricky. Sometimes I have been actually unable to get into the next gear without looking down and adjusting my foot position to get more leverage. Not ideal. Hopefully they break in some more and it gets easier.

Awesome first boots!
These were my first "track" boots so they felt rather different at first. After riding with them for a day, I was able to feel comfortable while riding. They are a bit large around the calf but then again my calves are small. These boots feel great, look great: defietly recommend them.

Exactly what I was hoping for
This was my first boot purchase. I'd tried wearing some timberland work boots before but the toe box had made it very difficult trying to shift and feel where my feet were, so I have just been riding in some custom extra high top converse. I was a little worried at first that I would have the same feedback and shifting problems with these, but there was no such issue. Took about 2 seconds to get used to them.
Anyway- I usually wear about a 9 and have (I assume) average width feet, and the size 42 fit just right. I just unboxed my literally 2 hours ago, so they're still very stiff. I think they could do with a little padding on the inside to protect your foot from the hard parts but otherwise these seem very comfy.

I like the fit of these boots. I got a size bigger than I usually wear and they fit. They seem to run small. They are comfortable the top of the boot, is a little wide.

Bought this as my first set of boots. As a college student, I wanted something with a strong brand reputation, but also with a good price. I think I found it here. Boots feel very rigid and protective, but flex in the right places after a bit of break-in. Zipper and velcro is all well placed, and works perfectly. I can fit a set of jeans over them perfectly for running to the gas station, or put them on with my riding pants for long rides. From what I researched, they also seemed to hold up well with crashes from several other people, and that's the first comment that I look for before making a purchase. Only thing that I don't like about them is that they can be a little uncomfortable on your shin if your socks aren't long enough and you're walking longer distances, but that's more of a personal decision issue.

Simple, comfortable, functional. Great boots!
Everytime I have purchased proper boots for the job I have wondered, "why did I wait this long?"
I have no idea why I waited so long to add proper motorcycle boots to my kit.
My theme is black with red accents - it goes well with the RC-51. These boots fit the need. I refrained from the "air" version, I figured these would breath well enough with the bubble liner SIDI utilized. I was correct. Having worn these is 90* weather and made several stops, walking a fair amount, not overly hot for a full boot and absolutely no complaints in regard to comfort.

Great first boot
Bought these as my first set of dedicated motorcycle boots. They fit true-to-size. Initially, I thought they ran small, but you really have to smack your heel back into the heel cup the first few times you wear them, before it stretches out. The Lorica imitation leather is really stiff at first, but does break in (despite what you may read elsewhere).

Bottom Line is Excellent
I owned these boots for almost two years and they were top shelf. Comfortable, sturdy and I think a good value. They were my first boot purchase in many years. They are a bit narrow at the toes but were okay for me. I think I'm an average D width. They run true to size so I'd recommend ordering your size normal shoe size. If you have an E or wider foot this may not be the boot for you. I'm ready to buy another pair of boots and I think I'm leaning again toward SIDI. Hope this helps you make your decision.
