SIDI Fusion Boots
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.

My first boots
This is the first pair of cycle boots i've ever owned, and they're great. Study construction, good looks. (Another guy said "Sick boots, man." in my safety class. lol) The only drawback that I can think of is that there doesn't seem to be a whole heck of a lot of padding on the sole. I would consider buying some dr scholls or something for mine. I'll probably get Sidi socks too.

Great for long distance rides
Rode from Austin to Dallas and back this weekend. Weather was in the upper 70's. The boots seemed a little warm, so if your feet get hot easily you might consider the vented, but these should make great year round boots.

My favorite boot purchase
I have the fusion Rain model. The fit is a bit narrow to begin with but it stretched nicely with minimal use. Very snug fit, but true to size. I have Sidi Vertigo Air boots and they fit wide. I am not a D width wearer. Most times if it is a D width I'd go a half size down for better fit. The Fusion boots are more of a B width.
I've been soaked to the bone in torrential downpours here in Florida, and when I get home my feet and socks were totally dry!!! (nothing else was!)
I have had mine for the past two years and still they are totally waterproof!!!
I wear them daily on my commute to work. The soles are getting to where they may need replacing, but for the cost of a sole I think it best just to buy a new set. THIS IS SIDI'S BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK!!!!
I am tempted to get the Fusion Air, but the Fusion Rain breathes well enough for me even on the hottest summer rides here in Florida. That said, it's nice to have rain protection no matter what. You never know when it's going to rain and these boots are the SHIZZNIT!!!
I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. THEY BETTER NOT STOP MAKING THEM!
I see the new models have three versions. When I bought mine there was only the Fusion Rain or the Fusion Air.
Hope this review helps. - If you have narrow feet this is the boot for you, TRUST ME! Order your size and enjoy!
