SIDI Mythos Gore-Tex Boots
Good riding shoe
I tried 4 different riding shoes before settling with the Sidi Mythos Gore Tex. The others would pinch my instep when walking or were too wide or too uncomfortable to walk in after riding. These are not the best at everything but they are pretty good at most everything. I wish they would offer these with some ventilation as they do get pretty warm on a hot day when you stop riding and are walking around in them, nothing you can't live with. The shoes are flexible enough to walk in comfortably and they are the correct width for my foot. They look good under a pair of jeans although I would like a stripe or something to break up all the black on the top of the shoe, but that s just me. I have noticed my feet are a little tired after spending a few hours in them but that is probably because they are not broken in yet. They offer good shifter feel with plenty of protection for the foot and ankle. Overall, I would recommend these and would probably buy them again if something happened to this pair. Sizing is spot on for me. I wear a size 10 or 10 1/2 and a 44 fit me perfectly. I use these when riding a 2006 Buell XB12ss Lightning long.

These shoes are pretty amazing. I love the look and layout of these shoes. They're also gore-tex so they resist become muggy inside while keeping the water out.
This may just be me because I know that I have good feet, but I am able to walk all over my school campus with these on (I put forcefield soles in them), and my feet don't hurt at all. They obviously aren't like walking on a cloud, but it's defiantly doable.
They're not built for comfort, but they definitely aren't bad.
Style, waterproof (breathable gore-tex), and sturdy protection is where these boots exceed. They get by with a passing C+ grade on comfort. Add an extra sole to the boot and you can bump comfort up to a respectable B.

good, capable shoes
I bought these to replace icon Baja boots because the boots didn't function well on my new bike. (I traded bonnie in to mv agusta#
These are expensive but I think it's worth spending more than $200. They fit like regular sneakers and very comfy walking around. Not too heavy and not too stiff.
I had to ride in a storm last week and I was drenched but my feet/socks were completely dry when I got home. I was totally amazed about that. #gore-tex us awesome#
I live in Vegas and ride in triple digits weather. These don't have much air flow so, my feet tend to get a bit hot.
Pros : Water proof, comfort, construction.
Cons : Poor air flow, slick soles. #not much traction, especially when the ground is wet)

Good shoe just a bit too hot for Hawaii.
This shoe gives you the peace of mind that your feet/ ankles are well protected. A bit large in size in length and width. Only gripe is that it is too hot for Hawaii weather. No airflow at all. Dogs are really hot after a ride.

Sidi quality in construction and materials
A very nice, although expensive, short boot with protection and waterproof materials. Have worn them for several rides including a 6 hour jaunt over the Cascades. Takes time and effort to get these boots "worked" in so they are not stiff. I wore them a few times for walks around neighborhood and put a lot of effort into massaging the fabric to help the process. They are now beginning to be comfortable. I have 10 year old Sidi half boots that are just about worn out and these are better built. Have not worn in wet weather so there is nothing to report about being water proof. Velcro closure over the shoestrings is a nice touch. I think they are worth the price.

Yea, its a pricey boot but for how I can wear them all day at work and then get caught in a severe rain storm coming home and my feet stay dry says how good this boot is. My first rain experience was in my first full week with them and I had a 10 mile ride home in a monsoon wind and rain and feet were bone dry! I stopped at a red light and my feet stuck to the pavement so good you know these are a well thought out design. Styling is great. I wear Icon Super Duty 4 boots almost every day and they are great but nothing like these. If you want a great boot here is one. I wear a 9.5 for my icons but needed a 43 which per the web site is 9 to 9.5.

Sidi Mythos Gore-tex
I was skeptical, I don't like spending much on shoes or boots in general, these were my first pair of riding boots/shoes. I had a wreck in them and they got scuffed up (75mph) lay down, and it rubbed the boots raw where my foot was dragging against asphalt as I slid, I got up and walked away, it kept my foot and ankle completely safe.
They are still useable, I will be rebuying again one day. They are quite stylish too!

Comfortable Touring Boot
After severe flatfoot surgery could no longer wear my existing pull on boot. This shoe offered a nice alternative in comfort and just over the ankle. The orthotic inserts I need makes this a nice fit with narrow foot and heel. Normally wear 10.5 so the Euro size 45 worked for me.
