SIDI Mythos Gore-Tex Boots
amazing comfort and great protection
Normally wore a pair of timberlands; i decided it was time to get something more comfortable and with added protection and comfort in mind without looking like a space boots. After 1 week of searching, the reviews on this boot decided my fate. The sizing is right on point (im normally a size 10 in US mens sneakers and a size 10 in these are perfect). I have a wide foot as well as a low arch....PERFECT FIT!!! They dont look like a space boot, they have good protection features, they are comfortable and breathable, steel towed, as well as the sole flex when youre walking feels just the same as a sneaker. i HIGHLY recommend these for anyone. I havent tested the water proof feature, but imagine it holds true as all of the other features have been right on the mark.

It's a sidi boot, every thing is as it should be
This is my first pair of riding shoes and or boots. These are very comfortable on the bike and with a pair of high ankle socks you can conforitablely wear them all day. Highly recommend these boots. I have not riden in the wet with them but I can say that when ridding you kinda forget that you are wearing them witch is exactly what I was looking for somthing that is protective and you don't relize you are wearing them. I ride a 2010 yamaha R1

Great low profile shoes
A bit more expensive but definitely worth it for some of the safety features you get.

Great riding boot! Have SIDI racing/riding boots and was looking for a lower cut boot that still covers the ankles and comfortable to wear to work as well. Very happy with the boots. Wear a 9.5 and ordered the 9-9.5. Fit great!

I love these
I wanted a bit of extra protection when not wearing full blown riding boots. These are nice and sturdy. Great sole and ankle/toe protection. I've worn them down into the 20s and my toes stayed warm

I don't leave home without them.
Being from the North West, I needed a comfortable riding boot option that was waterproof, and bonus to if they could pass as a non-riding shoe. These fit the bill.
I wear a US10.5 in most shoes, but I did refer to a pair of barefoot trail shoes to confirm Euro sizing. I ordered a size 44, which is closest to a US10 and they are perfect.
Make sure you're wearing socks high enough to clear the boot, else you're going to have a bad time. They'll rub on your ankle/leg after a while. I wore these on a 6 mile walk this last weekend and they were comfortable the whole way. The footbed is flexible enough for walking around in, but firm enough to not cause any issues when riding. The toe box could stand to be a little wider, but it isn't like your feet will be cramped. Like I said - these are very comfortable. Being waterproof they don't allow for airflow - good on cold days. We'll see how they perform when it gets hot out this summer!
Overall, I highly recommend these boots.

I never ride without them
I've always worn foot protection when I rode as a kid until now, and I always loved Sidi boots. These offer lots of ankle coverage and I suffer from an injury currently, so I want to cover them from further injury/pain.
I will say, I typically wear anywhere from a 13 in a running or basketball shoe to about a size 11 in a dress shoe. That said, I ordered the 46 and its fits very nicely. The footbed is very thin and I have upgraded which makes a big difference. The flex is comfortable enough to wear all day on or off the bike. Provides great feel on the pegs as far as feedback of controls go.
As far as airflow is concerned, I'd say it's non-existent. However, the Gore-tex combined with the cordura panels does allow breathability. When June arrives along with 90 degree temps and rain, more will be revealed. A thin coolmax or similar sock is preferable to allow comfort.
Overall, I'm very happy with the boots!

Great riding shoe and walking shoe
I purchased these after many many days of reviewing shoes. I wanted a low riding shoe just above the ankle with support. I also wanted the shoe to be waterproof and breathable. The next feature I wanted was no slip sole. It had to look good even in shorts. When I recieved these I was very surprised, looked like a high top tennis shoe. Put a nice pair of smartwool socks on and these were perfect. Very pricey but I think I got a bang for my buck.
