SIDI Women's Fusion Lei Boots
The best boot of it's class
I'm a newbie rider and I purchased these boots for multiple reasons. Mostly I wanted better protection on the street. I was not disapointed by it's quality. The boot is very stiff at first, has a shin guard, replacable toe sliders and achillies protecter. Typical of everything you will get for a street or entry level track boot. I have plenty of confidence that these boots will protect my feet and ankles if needed. (Hopefully never.#
I really wanted something that was comfortable on and off the bike. Upon reciept, the boot is extremely stiff, but this is typical of anything leather (or synthetic leather in this case.) They are comfortable sitting on my sportbike, and has even helped with the numbness I get after long rides. Even with the stiffness, they are extrememly comfortable walking around off the bike which was really important to me. I have a high arch and walked around in these boots for a couple hours off the bike and have had no back pain. You can also put a different pair of soles in them if need be.
I honesltly prefered something a little less toned down when I was looking for boots and had originally decided on the comparable model that Alpinestars sells. However, once I got these, I fell in love. They really do look great, and arent nearly as loud as I feared they would be. They are very comfortable tucked into jeans and a boot cut pair of jeans will easily fit over them as well. This boot fits like a glove as well. I tend to have smaller claves and this boot fine tunes to it. I can adjust how tight they are around the calves with the zelcro at the top. They are very secure.

best boots ever
These were the second pair of boots I ordered (1st were sent back they were no good) was worried about riding in something so stiff but they've been great and broke in quickly. They are so comfortable and they look good too. I feel well protected when wearing these boots. Not sure if ill buy anything other than sidi!

Sidi Wins Again
I've owned a few pairs of Sidi boots over the years. I've always been very happy with them. I believe they offer superior value to similar offerings by Alpinestars and Dainese (as I've owned boots from these brands as well).
For this particular pair, I purchased these for my girlfriend after trying (and then exchanging) a "style" boot from Icon called the "Sacred Tall". The Sacred Tall looked nice but would not fit over my girlfriend's leather pants. They barely fit over her jeans. These Sidi boots fit wonderfully over her leather pants.
They're certainly not made for walking around off the bike as the sole is very stiff, but in every other way they are phenomenal. Highly recommended. We went up half of a size. She normally wears a 6.5 and we picked up a 7.0. She has just a touch extra room and is happy with them. FWIW, she's a passenger only at this point.

Great investment! Worth every penny!!
I originally picked up the Vertigo Lei's in 41 but had to return due to being too large. I decided to downgrade a bit to the Fusion Lei's in a 40 and they fit wonderfully, except on the side bone at the ball of my foot. It sticks out a bit and they rub slightly on one foot, but otherwise the boots are AMAZING. The only time they are uncomfortable is when I am OFF the bike. On the bike, they took a bit of getting used to. I had to adjust my shifter multiple times to get it positioned in a good place to be able to shift properly, but once that was done and I was used to the boots they are incredible for riding. I feel very protected, the boots are stylish and comfortable for riding, and overall they were a very sound investment. It has taken a week or so wearing them on and off the bike (when exploring!) to get them broken in, but now that they are I will never wear my DCs on my bike again! If you are thinking about buying these - stop thinking about it and do it! You won't regret it!

Beats out the SMX-5!
Why spend the extra monies on the SMX-5 that is made in China, when you can get the Fusion Lei by Sidi that is made in Italy! Still breaking these bad boys in, but so far they've been great. Only adjustment was to my shift lever, the toe was a little too fat to make shifting efficient. Amazing styling on the boot and performs among the best.

i like this product a lot!
price is decent. you don't want to pay too little and get what you pay for. if you don't have a ton of money to spend, this is what you want.
generally speaking, i really dislike how much of the products out there for women have pink, flowers, hearts, swirls, etc. it's cheesy. i like that this design is pretty much the same as men's. makes me feel like a tough chick that i like to pretend to be.
when i first started riding, i dropped my moto on my foot while wearing these. i got a scratch on the boot, but the foot itself was well protected. job well done.
the only con for me personally is that when i shift with these on, i can't tell as well as with my sneakers when i have successfully changed gears (shifting up). for that reason, i don't score it a 5 on comfort.
