SIDI Mythos Gore-Tex 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.

I had to replace a pair of old boots and decided to go with the SIDI’s. So far, I’m very pleased with the purchase.
I specifically wanted to a pair that I could wear comfortably off the bike. I did not want a pair that was too stiff and needed something that I could walk around in. These fulfilled that desire and have been comfortable and not overly pronounced as riding boots. That was a win in my book.
There is good protection at the heel and ankles as well as around the toe and into the shift area. The soles on these are relatively flat with a non-agressive tread pattern.
I personally have not owned a pair of boots this nice and they make my old pair look like flip flops. I appreciate the quality of these boots and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others if they are in the market.

Fit, finish and functionality for a very good price.
Have worn boots for decades for riding and was a little wary of this purchase but have to say these smaller boots are terrific. Wore them a lot this summer. Put around 3,000 miles as well as a lot of walking and standing. Very comfortable and offers good protection. They are waterproof. Very light weight and cooler compared to standard boots. No complaints. Would highly recommend them.

Comfortable, stylish, Gore Tex.
These Mythos were purchased to replace my 12 year old Sidi boots, which still were in great shape, although water resistance was gone. The new Mythos gore tex booots are intended to remedy that situation. Fortunately, I have not had the opportunity to ride in a good rainstorm to date. However, the very first day I used the Mythos boots I ended up standing in the boots for 5 hours straight. They remained comfortable the entire time and I am convinced I will get many years of good service from them. The only feature not totally pleased with is the need to tie laces, but not a big deal.

Brilliant Product - However
These are without question a brilliant product from Sidi.
And now the however;
I was however a little shocked to see that they are made not Italy like my Sidi Vetrigo boots in fact not even in Europe.
The unmistakable Italian design flair is there, its just that little thing that well!!!
The Mythos is a great design love it in its understated black (could do with a few more color options though Mr. Sidi - just saying that's all)
and well built riding shoe. I especially like the fact that the Mythos (which incidentally isn't released in the Australian market)
has great protection for its market position. A landscape of many competitors but few with the Mythos refined and defined level of protection.
As for comfort;
With my Vertigo boots I "may" be able to walk 200 meters and remain bipedal but with the Mythos, a 2 kilometer stroll around the city center and a comfortable ride home - no worries mate.
Would I buy these again? Ohh Yeah!!!!

Not your typical motorcycle boot.
Very comfortable. Great for day to weekend trips. Can walk in them all day with no unpleasant side effects. The perfect riding shoe if your plans include more than just riding.

Very Stylish for motorcycle shoes.
The fit is true to Sidi sizing. I wear a size 10 US and a 44 Euro fits good. Very comfortable on and off the bike.
