SIDI Women's Apex Lei Boots
Not Good for New Riders
Bought these boots about a week ago and right out the box they are super stiff. I could not shift in these boots at all. I bought a regular pair of work boots (like construction boots) and was able to shift with no problem. So as a new rider i would not recommend buying these as your first pair or if you do just know it will take allot of effort learning how to shift in these boots. I will be using mines for when i do aggressive riding but just everyday commuting i will be using my work boots atleast til I get better at shifting

Love this boot
I've worn Sidi mid-calf boots for 8 years and was so excited when I saw Sidi had a short boot for women. This boot has not disappointed. It took about a week for the stiffness to go away and to get used to shifting ....but now it fits like a well worn glove. They are significantly cooler when riding on days when the temperatures are in the 90s+. Ankle is fully protected. I get a lot of compliments on them from non-riders.
I even wear them if I am not riding!

Best Women's Low Riding Boot
This is an awesome example of a low riding boot. It is very stylish, quality built, super features and the fit is just right. Two side air vents allow for ventilation on hot days. These boots will take you from zero to "go" in no time at all and they look awesome.

I came looking for a good pair of boots to try on for when I get out on the road this season. Hiking boots didnt cut it! I tried them on in a few sizes and the associates explained proper fit. Walking aroind the store I found they were very comfortable! I bought them on the spot. :)

Great fit and Protection
I have larger calves due to sports so most of the higher track boots will not fit. These are great! Had to break them in for a day for a better fit, altho on the bike the angle is perfect and they were very comfortable. Trying to walk in them when new is...interesting... due to the armor. But when broken in they are Perfect!

THIS IS JUST A FIRST IMPRESSION REVIEW!
First off, these are beautiful, elegant, sturdy shoes. But just like everyone says you have to break into them.
First impression, very bulky and heavy. Part of me wants to return in because of the uncomfortableness. It feels like you're wearing a cast at first because it's super stiff, and your ankles are locked inside there.
However,the other part of me wants to keep it because I want time to see if it's really worth it and wear it to its limits for protection. But due to the return policy, I won't ever get to see if it WILL be comfortable without it being deemed "used" sighs..
If you're not use to heavy boots, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you're the hard core - track day type of gal, this would great for you. There's no doubt these will fail you protection wise. You'll love the added air vent on the sides btw.

Product is great, love it.
Of course you have to break in the boots at first, but they're great, love the style.
