Spidi X-Ultra Shoe
Good boot for summer days
I wanted a cooler, yet somewhat protective boot for riding to and from my office. These are working nicely. They fit true to size. Airflow is great. The only negative is the insole is really flat, and thin. I added better insoles, and now they are very comfortable to walk in, as well as on the bike.

Bad do not get it.
This product started to deteriorate, I don't even race and stitching started to disassemble. This product is not good.

Nice Riding Shoe, but hard to put on
Like one of the other reviewers said the strap is very short and putting it on usually takes me over 5 min per foot. Air flow is pretty good and protection is ok. I'm usually a 10.5/11 in US foot size so I went with size 10 like the video says and the fitment is almost perfect. Definitely needs a thicker inner padding or I would advise replacing it. Besides that great shoe that feels like a motorcycle shoe and looks like a pair of sneakers.

Spidi shoes are excellent protection short of most costly racing boots
If you're looking for a lower-cost, walk-around after you stop your ride shoe, this is the one use. The protection is excellent. The only downside is these aren't the right shoes to conceal under khakis at work (depends on where you work), but that's not really a bad thing so much as a specific application for the shoe. I wear my Spidis when the Dainese track boots are too much for a quick milk run.

All around awesome!
I have alot of good riding boots but I needed a set that are:
A. Vented for this hot summer.
B. Good looking.
D. Offering good protection.
I have gimpy feet with current injuries that make me extremely picky about the shoes I'm wearing. I was also tired of my piggies baking in my non-vented boots. These "fit" the bill(or feet)! They were true to size, perforated to the max, stiff, but not too stiff, seems to have protection in the right spots and very cool looking(I bought the white ones)!
My only beef with them is that the sole insert was a thin hard one so, with my tender feets, I replaced them with a Spenco brand insert. These shoes are now comfortable enough for walking around in all day. They look like a trendy street shoe or car racing shoe and not a clunky motorcycle boot.
One other slight complaint is the direction of the velcro strap is backwards from all my other shoes/boots so I keep grabing the wrong side to undo them.
These are just a pinch narrow but not too narrow.

This product saved my ankle
Unfortunately I recently was in an accident where a car turned into me while I was passing at about 30-40 mph. The car struck my bike just about where the my foot was on the peg, with enough force to bend the substantial peg bracket. I was thrown from the bike and must have tumbled a bit on some roadside gravel. Importantly, the shoe did not come off either foot! that is a big plus already. Secondly, the ankle suffered just a hairline fracture... and I say just because I know it could have been much worse. The other shoe suffered a hole to the inside of my right big toe about the size of a dime, but the impacts on the heal and toe tell me that the shoe saved my feet a bunch more injury. While I am stepping up to a higher level riding boot, for the price point, this riding shoe was really comfortable, light, cool to use and performed admirably... during its short time with me. I very glad I had this on! :)

The perfect low boot
If you're looking to get something shorter than a full size boot; look no further.
Great tactile feel on the shifting, good grip on rear sets and ground, comfortable yet sturdy, and really just great boots.
Don't bother with the rest, get the best!

Simple but effective
Was looking for a pair of shoes to go with my ridingjeans. I was looking and i wanted something different then black. I got these Spidi's in black and white, and the red accents make them look so good with my jeans and on the bike.
At first i was a little worried about what size to get. But after looking at the short boots i have at the moment (Revit Fighter). These are a size 46/12, so orderd the Spidi also in 46/12. As i got them and wanted to put them on i saw that on the label it said (46/11.5). But still they fit gooooood, very slightly tight fit at the balls of my feet. But with use and wear that isnt a problem to loosen up.
Have to say on fit (besides good), when putting them on in my case. I have to loosen the laces up quite a bit otherwise im not even able to get my feet in at all.
