SIDI Women's Apex Lei Boots
Worth the money!
I have had problems in the past fitting a leather boot under my shifter, so I switched to more technical boots, which are not as tall in the toe area. This boot replaces another short boot that suffered toe-cap collapse on both boots. The toe protection here feels much more substantial. The air flow is good, and there seems to be a ton of protection. I will probably have my shoemaker glue a thin sole on to the bottom for more tread, and to make the boots last longer, as I wear these for travel, which involves walking around a lot. These seem plenty wide in the foot, even though billed as slightly narrower than standard. I'm not sure I love the silver accent, but the rest of the features are what I want.

No good for large legs
I've had a lot of trouble finding boots to protect my ankles because I apparently have freakishly large calves compared to whoever these boots were modeled around. I got these hoping they would fit since they didn't need to go over the calves. I was wrong. The didn't even zip up over my ankles.
Very disappointing since these boots are well made, have lots of protection, and look great. The sole sizing was perfect, I just wish these weren't made for women with tiny bird bones. Hopefully a pair of men's boots will fit.

Great look, lot of features and after a while also very comfortable.

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!
