SIDI Streetburner Boots
Got this shoe because of its looks and features. I didn't go wrong, what a great shoe!! You get what you pay for. Comfortable, easy to put on and take off and looks great. Everyone compliments me. You won't be sorry.

After four season I get to review this...says me.
What Up Zilla Nation,
Today I’m going to review my beloved Sidi Streetburner Boots. I’ve used these, on the street, for 4 midwest season now and they have held up fantastic. Other than replacing the toe sliders once...I have yet to needed to replace any other parts or have had any other real issue.
Quick note about replaceable parts and the screw...check and tighten...very gentle all the screw at least halfway through your riding season. And if you have to replace any parts...again be gentle with the screws and don’t over tighten.
Fit and finish...the only real issue, if any and if that stuff bothers you, is the hard plastic parts don’t line up seamlessly together in some spots on the boot. Hard rigid parts attached to fexible syn’ leather...not sure what perfection your really expecting. To me it ok...it’s a boot and it’s going to get beat the “f” up. This one is up to you.
The Tecno 2 “lacing” system is just like on the Vortice race boots, and is the best...I mean THE BEST “lacing” system ever. It hold your foot snug against the sole and into the heel cup so you get zero heal lift and the boot really become a part of you foot.
The upper is not leather but lorica synthetic leather like what all Sidi foot wear is made of. It’s not a perf’d boot but the on/off side vents are a simple design and flow quite a bit of air on those hot days. With a pair of good motorcycle socks my feet have yet to sweet on a long ride.
The sole is very stiff and thin so it gives you lot of peg feedback. Again bottom of a real race boot and if your looking for sneaker like feel then you need to look elsewhere.
Protection, now this is the kicker. for the coverage of the half boot/shoe it is the bottom of a Vortice race boot(pretty close) and all the protection that entails. But it really has only medium ankle support and it does little to keep you ankle from twisting in a crash, in my opinion. But thats what you choosing to give up for the level of comfort and the super ease of putting it on. No half boot/shoe design gives you any real ankle support only protection from impact, reduce shock, and abrasion.
These shoes have served me, and still are, for over 4 years of street riding. Even though I’ve transition more to my Dainese Torque RS boots as my riding has progressed, I still wear these for the looks, ease to put on, comfort and peace of mind it gives me. I love these things...you love them too.
Hope this helps,

Perfect for commuting or some canyon carving!!!
So I decided to pick these up over the Mag 1 because I needed a protective riding boot/shoe that could get me to school/work and some aggressive canyon carving. These seemed to fit perfect after watching the video and reading the reviews. I was worried about them having issues with shifting but I got the right size and they fit like a glove! No break in other than a couple steps to my bike. They seem very stout and the design is clean. NO SQUEAKING at all when you walk. Flow air great, easy to slip in and out of, not to flashy can wear under pants with no issues. If you are looking for a good looking, solid boot that isn't a full boot, look no further and pick these up!! Shipping was extremely fast without having to upgrade it. Thx for another great product

Best protection for this style of boot.
Great protection, love how the parts are replaceable. The ventilation system works well.

Love these Boots
I have had these boots for 2 seasons (2 yrs.) now. I originally bought the Streetburners because of the replaceable parts, the side vents, and they look very technical. I normally wear a size 10 but have a slightly wider than average foot. The 45's fit me great.
These boots are perfect for when I am in the mood for AGGRESSIVE Riding but want a little more comfort then my "Full On Race Boots". These actually feel like a "Short Race Boot" instead of a "3/4 top hiking boot" or a "3/4 top basketball shoe". You can see and feel the quality. These boots are SOLID.

Better than I hoped
The Streetburners arrived quickly. They are easy to put on, quite easy to get off. The break-in period is brief, they feel a little tight at first but once the boot warms up that goes away. I'm riding again after a very long time and had been using hiking boots to get ankle protection. These are much better! Many great protective features, I'm thinking of getting a taller Sidi boot for cold weather riding.

Purchased these boots for fast street riding in the summer. Ventilation is good and protection is excellent. The fastening is a little fiddly at first but quickly becomes second nature. I was especially impressed with the speed Revzilla filled my order. I placed the order on Sunday night before Labor Day and the package was on my doorstep on Wed. I highly recommend these boots.

Best riding shoes I've purchased.
It's always difficult to find well fitting shoes as I have wide feet. I am a huge fan of Dainese but I've found none of their shoes/boots to fit me well.
Fortunately, I've found SIDI to fit comfortably for me. I do have to go a half size bigger though. On their Mega series, I wear a 9.5US but on their normal line up I wear a 10US.
These shoes are extremely easy to get in and out of from. That makes these go to shoes for riding around in town or even on the highway. They feel extremely well put together. Stiff and protective.
I worried about hard parts scratching the bike but haven't had any trouble with it.
I highly recommend these shoes. Buy the best gear you can afford and I would say these are the best shoes available for any price.
