Sidi Streetburner Boots
Cool functional boots
I bought this boots honestly because they look very cool and for town riding . They are quite comfy once broken in but still a little stiff. I can't say the ventilation has any effect, and the nylon cable for closing the boot is a little variable in action, and looks like it may fail at some stage. Protection is good though ,and they are easy to walk in as well.
Overall happy with the purchase they are the coolest boots .

I *love* these boots - they're very comfortable but buy one size up as they're cut really small. I normally wear EUR size 44 but got these from a store and chose 45, and they're still smallish.
That said, they're super comfortable and for protection all I can say is I crashed them twice and there's nary a scratch on them - they're just rock solid, and they will protect your feet. On one occasion my whole body hurt - but not my feet.
They're the most comfortable hard boots I've ever walked in, too. They're not as nice as soft sneakers but for the level of protection they provide I don't think comfort can be any better.
Ventilation is great, never had an issue and I am riding in tropical temperatures.
All in all, a fantastic product that works well. Looks good, too.

Everything you could need in a boot.
I've worn my Sidi Streetburner boots for a month now:
1) Although a bit pricey, probably the best shoe for the $. They honestly feel like a car could run over them and I'd not notice.
2) Not super comfortable, but I knew that going in. They are fine for walking if you don't wear ankle socks, which doesn't protect you from the back of this shoe.
3) Airflow is good. I've had some hot days and haven't noticed that my feet were hot.
4) I'm wearing them right now. Looking at them, they look fantastic. They offer a bit of wiggle room. I like the fastener that runs across the top of the boot.
5) People at work think these shoes are pretty cool.
6) I like the replaceable parts via screws. For sliders, heel, and airflow switch.
My only really negative so far is the velcro strap that you connect at the top of your ankle, tends to slide down and grab the mesh tongue. It frays the mesh a bit which is no big deal. Honestly I'm being crazy picky at this point, but things like that bother me.

Great boots, light and very easy to put on and take off.
I have the boots for a few weeks now and I really love them. They feel great and my feet feel cooler on hot days vs just regular shoes thanks to the vents on the sides.
If you are looking for a boot to wear on long trips or just going out for a joy ride then these are great.

Best boots for the street rider
I didn't want the iron man boots so the street burner gives you the best in protection and comfort! Don't mess up the money on a cheaper less quality boot!

Great boots. I am on my second pair and love them
This is a great pair of boots to wear when riding around town or even for a more aggressive ride. Yes full boots are always better, but if you are going to be spending quite a bit of time with them on but off the bike you cant beat them for comfort and protection. They took a day or two to break in for me.
My only complaint was I wish there was a bit more ventilation on the boots. I am thinking some kind of rear exit vent would make air flow better.
This is my second pair as I managed to outgrow the first pair. I am a female and I find the sizes pretty comparable. I do have a narrow heel but a wider forefoot. I usually end up replacing the super thin insole with a better more cushy insole that is slightly thicker and the boot fits great. The fact you can adjust the front sizing makes it perfect for me. Also knowing my ankles are still protected makes me feel better.

Good boots, fight nice and tight, but you need insoles for them to fit better, unless your flat footed. The upper strap taht goes around the ankle, should be one of the locking straps instead of velcrow, but i still like the boot, they are light and still feel good on the feet!!!!

comfortable and lightweight
These Sidi's are a pretty good short boot. They look bulky but they're pretty lightweight - I don't notice them when I'm riding (you shouldn't be noticing your boots anyway!) Open the vents on the sides to get some nice airflow to your feet. One complaint I have is the tongue of the boot - there's no elastic or anything keeping the tongue forward so it tends to slide to the side.
