SIDI Streetburner Boots
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.

Great boots. Tighten on foot well and simple to get on and off. Good quality protection in a boot that will last.

Protective Everyday Low-Cut Boot
I wear a 9 US in most everything. With Sidi the 43 (9 1/2) was perfect. I was worried I might have to exchange for the 10, but not so. The fit is great with a normal pair of socks, and enough room to double up if needed.
The buckle system over the top of the foot is good, a tad complicated, but snugs down with precision, so its easy to fine tune. The dial system and unlock feature look vulnerable to breaking, but only time will tell. The top strap is a simple velcro closure, a bit odd because both sides are straps, instead of one side pulled across to a fixed point. Makes it tough to pull the lower to the left and the top strap over it to the right. But its kind of a moot point because the top strap is meant to be snug, not tight, so the system works well enough. The top straps are also hinged on both sides which is nice for positioning.
While riding my bike I don't even think about them, enough said.
I would like to close with this: These are protective boots. They are stiff, and feel like they will protect your feet in a crash, basically a full on race boot cut short. I do plan to wear them all day at work (desk jockey) and they should break in nicely, they are not great from a comfort standpoint, but if they were they wouldn't be a protective boot.
I returned the A-Stars SMX-2 boot, which is basically a soft leather dress boot with some plastic bits glued on, I might as well been wearing sneaks or casual work shoes. The Sidis are expensive but they are a protective boot for motorcycle riding, unlike just about every other choice in this category. Seems like $100 to $200 will not buy you any protection, just style.
Pony up the extra cash and you will not be disappointed, if not save your money and stick with your everyday shoes, cuz thats basically what your getting with anything under $200. If money is tight, the Sidi Apex will save a few bucks and get the job done too!

Excellent ankle height boot
My first review and I have nothing to compare it to. Nevertheless, I took the plunge and pretty happy with it. Two small issues with the boot. First, I cannot get the velcro ankle closure as tight as I would like, but it still gets the job done. Secondly, the plastic "tongue" of the quick closure system feels a bit awkward on the outside of your foot. It does't bother me when I am mounted but walking around, you can definitely feeling; it is not painful or intrusive enough to give you blisters. Overall, I think this is the best bang for the buck in ankle height boots. Above this, and you will need to go to a full racing boot.
