Sidi Streetburner Boots
Best street boot on the market!
This boot is amazing! I used to use my Sidi Vortice on the street which worked great but then I wanted a shorter boot for everyday riding and commuting. I tried A-Stars SMX2 boots which were pretty good then I went to the A-Stars Fastlane which were comfortable but too soft for street bike use. Then I found these boots and I love them. So easy to get on and off and it's basically a short version if the Vortice. The boot looks amazing and has all the protection you would expect from Sidi. I ordered white sliders and heel cups for mine to change it up a bit. Great boot and great service from Revzilla, as usual!

Best short boot available
Sidi streetburner is the best short boot available, period. I looked at a number of options from Alpinestars, Dainese, and TCX. I have a full size boot from Alpinestars already. The reason for getting a smaller boot was convenience for short rides in the city.
This thing feel indestructible. Very very secure. Fit is very comfortable. Shoes are narrow. I love the way it looks although it may be overboard for many people.
Finally, revzilla did a great job in shipping. I got the order in 1 day!

Great riding shoe
I've had these Sidi's now for about 7 months and they holding up great compared to my previous A* octanes. They are worn daily for commuting and can be left on all day without too much discomfort. A few things to add to what the other reviewers said: These are Sidi's and they WILL squeak, I've never seen a sidi that doesn't eventually develop a squeaking problem. An easy way to remedy this is to keep the spots where leather and plastic rub against each other lightly lubricated with either some Teflon wax or graphite grease.
Other than that, these boots are fantastic if not a tad pricey. But you get what you pay for in protection and comfort. These are the easiest shoes to slip in and out of if you do change them when you get to your destination, and I've crashed in Sidi's before on and off the track, they are bulletproof and you can replace the bits that get scuffed up.

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!
