Sidi, continuously researching new technological solutions to enhance rider safety, is proud to present the Charger boot. With Sidi’s great style, feel, support and quality there are no finer performance off road boots in the world.
Heel Detail: Three extended ribs are featured at the back of the boot to assist the rider in making upshifts with his heel when starting a race. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection.
Non-Bootie Designs: Sidi boots do not incorporate inner booties into their design, and for good reason. Booties make the design larger and cumbersome; add to the boot’s thickness, which interferes with shifting, plus the inner booties retain body heat affecting the rider’s performance and comfort.
Single Flex System: Utilized on the Charger boot the Single Flex System offers the rider free movement forward and backward while limiting its side to side deflection thus offering the rider maximum comfort and strength.
Buckles: Sidi’s exclusive cam-lock buckle system is acknowledged as the finest system on the planet. It must be as most of Sidi’s competitors have attempted to copy various aspects of it. The cam-lock buckle system incorporates a strap memory retention system. Adjust the straps once and they will be at the same position for every ride after that! No more readjusting for every ride or mid-day during a ride.
Toe Areas: The tip of the toe on the Charger boots are covered with plastic to protect the base material and seems against abrasion from brush etc. Plastic shift and brake lever guards on the top of each foot area.
Heat Shields: Each Sidi boot is equipped with an anti-heat undressed leather protection panel at the same height of most motorcycle’s exhaust heat shields.
Replaceable Parts: Every bolt on component of each Sidi off road boot is available separately. Riders can change the various components to replace items that have worn or have been damaged in a crash or to make a custom colored boot to match his/her personal taste.
Composite Insole: Sidi is the only manufacture to use a composite insole that is anatomically shaped to the rider. A cushioned liner is provided that can be removed if the rider desires a more roomy fit. Sidi does not use steel shanks riveted to its insole like most manufactures, details such as this enable Sidi boots to enjoy a multi year service life versus the competitors multi month lifespan as over time, a steel shank can deteriorate, rust and fracture exposing the rider to injury.
Lining: Cambrelle is a lining that, due to its particular polyimide structure, guarantees a rapid drying rate after the boot gets wet or sweaty. This prevents the onset of mold forming which extends the boots lifespan dramatically. The Teflon treated mesh panels in the rear calf area of the boot allow humidity to escape while the boot is in use.
Very nice for my first pair of boots
But they're taking forever to break in and they're very noisy (squeaky). I got them and the next day did 6 hours of trail riding. On the first ride I did miss a bunch of shifts so I moved the shifter up one notch and that seemed to help. I wear a size 11.5. I ordered 11.5 and they fit perfectly. The buckles are very secure, stylish, and easy to figure out.
The day after my first ride I wore them to walk the dogs in the park (about two miles). Still not broken in. The leather is still stiff and squeaks when you walk. I love the look and styling. I ordered the all black version.
I'm guessing when they finally loosen up they'll be awesome. If they don't eventually loosen up I'll be in the market for an extra long shifter and some leather oil to stop the squeaking.

Stout boot, although some cautions
This was my first ever pair of dedicated off-road boots. After many years of street riding, I started some enduro riding on a WR250R this past summer. A friend with many years of off-road riding experience strongly suggested stiff, MX-style boots. I tried on the Chargers in a local shop and later bought a pair from Revzilla. The majority of my shoes and boots are size 11.5, halfway between standard width and I-definitely-need-a-wide-version. The 11.5/46 Chargers fit me pretty well overall, like snug everywhere.
I have two problems with the boots, though. Firstly, I had no idea that it was possible to buy motorcycle boots that would provide so little feel of the foot controls. The only way I know that I’m using the rear brake is when the rear wheel is locked up. I guess I’m not much of an off-road rider yet that I still need to feel the shift lever and brake pedal. Or maybe the brake is supposed to be used simply as an on-off switch off road, I don't know. Secondly, the panel that holds the wedge in front of the lowest buckle on one of the boots causes a pressure point on the outside edge of my foot. If you buy or try on these boots, make sure you walk around and “feel” for this pressure point before you go out and use the boots. If I would have known about these things, I probably would have tried the Agueda or Discovery Rain for a slightly less stiff feel and smooth sides. I’ve heard that the Gaerne Balance Oiled might also work better for me. Minus one star for the pressure point. Overall, a serious off-road boot; just not so great for me.

Jeff P: I like Sidi quality and features. I have narrow feet and love the fit of my SIDI cycling shoes.Jan 14, 2014
A shopper asked:I have always been a alpinstar fan, I'm in the market for new boots, and thought I'd look at these. My question is how well do these hood up in the enduro type of riding? Also I wear a size 13 in all my riding boots, would I be ok In a 13 in the charger?May 10, 2014
Mike C:Added the Charger to replace my Combat Touring boots. Those were good and will be relegated to Harley duty. These are more stout, much more firm sole is great for all day on the pegs. Plenty of protection and the toe still gives some feel not plastic or overly bulky. Heal is strong and comfortable to heal ride and toe brake on severe down hills. Dropped the bike on my foot last ride and the peg broke the fall on the arch of my foot. Visions of a broken foot flashed in my mind as it crashed down and amazingly no pain? I really flinched expecting it to hurt but nothing. I have full confidence . Pleased and and expext long life.May 10, 2014
mark h:I use the charger for 100 % enduro well mostly tight technical single track. The boots couldn't be any better for the price I love them. Way better then my buddies tech 8! They are light and and easily take the beatings I've been giving them. As far as size I went off the chart and they fit great. I'm never buying a different boot again unless I decide to drop more money for the crossfire 2May 10, 2014
ERIK O:The sidi chargers hold up well in the trails well made and comfortable great protection. The only problem I had is that the toe kick shield hardware keeps coming loose and I lost one. As far as size goes pretty standard, I have no regrets and would recommend them. May 14, 2014
joel m:I wear mine in the woods, water, track and every place else and love them. One time I even crashed on pavement hard and they held up, they also have replacement hard parts. Will be my next pair again for sure, worth the big coin.May 10, 2014
A shopper asked:I currently have a pair of Sidi Crossfire 2 SRS. I've worn them about 7 rides...I'm a woods rider. The Crossfires feel heavy and I dont have that Tactitle sensation I have from my old AXO's. Now I know that my AXO's dont offer as much protection and are really broken in, but they feel like tennis shoes compared to the Crossfire's. Im looking at replacing the Crossfire's with the Chargers, but curious if I am going to get more Tactile feel for breaking and shifting, less weight, but still have good protection?Sep 24, 2014
Peter W:Hi, in my case it was similar. I used to have some Forma ATV boots and bought the SIDI Charger boots. I´m into adventure touring and was looking for more protection, wich is well covered with the chargers but, they also feel heavy and stiff. I lost the tactile sensation as well. I´m not really familiar with all the boots but I think if your looking for tactile sensation you have to go for SIDI Agueda or SIDI TRial Zero boots. Hope this helps youSep 25, 2014
Craig P:I ride about every weekend on a Honda 450X. I live in Reno Nv. and the boots feel very light. I've rode about 20 rides with these boots and I enjoy them alot. I would recommend them for you. Sep 24, 2014
Juan Carlos V asked:Hi what is the sole height of this boot I need to raise my height at least 1 inch so I could lay my feet on the ground? Would this boot help or should I use a sole riser?Nov 13, 2014
Ray T:Have had a pair of the Charger boots now for over a year and for me these boots fit like a glove (I do not have a wide foot). To answer the question about sole height, the heel piece itself is about an inch high with the remaining sole maybe a little over a half inch (5/8") high, so not sure I'd count on getting true inch of height that you are looking for. I compared the sole height of the Chargers to my running shoes (New Balance running/jogging shoes) and in fact it would appear that the sole height of the running shoes and the Chargers are similar. So, if a pair of New Balance runners don't get you the sole height you are looking for then the Chargers likely will not. A lower seat on the motorcycle may be the best solution, however will leave that with you. These are great boots, as long as they fit the individual's feet, as is the case with any type of footwear (runners, ski boots etc.). Hope this is of some help.
A shopper asked:I'm looking at the charger, or the adventure gore-tex for off rode use. I like a boot with a decent amount of ankle flex for shifting. (never liked hard plastic boots) Which of these models would have the most ankle flex? Also would a boot in the SIDI line with the double hinge system be better in that aspect?May 29, 2014
A shopper asked:I have a pair of Sidi on the Roads in 11.5 46 they fit very well .I'am looking to get a pair of Chargers but I hear they run a little small. What would you suggest for size? Thanks for the help . Ride Safe CBDec 11, 2011
