Sidi Way Mega Rain Boots
These are truly great boots. I have worn them riding through day long rain and my feet stayed completely dry. They are comfortable on the bike, but also comfortable to walk in. I have walked for several hours in these and still felt good. My harness boots of another brand are only good for 15 minutes before my feet are aching. Highly recommended.

Good but not great
Pretty good looking boot and seem to last pretty well. I put custom insoles in mine and they are much more comfortable than they were new. Not perfectly waterproof, I have had damp feet in moderate showers, and they are pretty hot in the summer. I expected more for the money.

Always wore alpine stars, but these are just as good and more comfortable. They come in wide width which is much better. Very waterproof. Good boot.

Nothing else left if you have wide feet!
I had an old pair of Oxtar Matrix boots, size 40 (I'm 7-71/2 4E) and purchased a new pair of the TCX X-Five Plus boots in the same size, but they changed the last and made them narrower!!! I much prefer the real leather, and the protection seems to be more robust on the TCX along with a better sole, and there's nothing like real leather. The Mega Rain's are OK not great for the price, and the Lorica definitely feels artificial and won't "mold" to your foot the way leather does. It does not breath as well as Gore-Tex in the X-Five Plus either.

Good to have a wide boot but a little clunky
I wear a 10 4E New Balance sneaker, and this boot in size 44 fits well with a thick sock. Not tight at all - a size 43 might even work a little better. There is a zipper on the bottom inside with velcro closure above, giving plenty of room if you have big calves. The boot is made of a synthetic material which makes it a bit clunky - miss some shifts because I can't feel the shift lever very well. Perhaps this will improve as the boot breaks in.Have not worn them in a downpour so can't comment on their watertightness. Overall appreciate that Sidi has made this boot for wide feet and would suggest that they make other wide models - the audience is out there.

Sidi Way Mega Rain Motorcycle Boots
I wear a 13 Wide and the boot fits well even with a pair of cushy socks. The boot so far does not get overly warm even on and eighty degree day. They are very easy to walk in. I have observed that the boot is cut amply on the calf to allow you to tuck in your jeans if you like. Very good soles and very light. I have scuffed the inside of one boot but that is to be expected. They are easy to take on and off but do follow the instructions for flexing forward before closing the velcro to get the best fit. I have noticed the stiff shin plate once or twice but do not care as this is the protcection I want as well.

I have a 10.5 EE foot size, and I ordered a size 45 and they fit fine. I needed a wide boot, so I couldn't order a TCX Matrix. These boots are not waterproof. My feet were both damp after a 1/2 day of rain. Also, they don't dry well overnite, so my feet were damp as well for most of the next day.

Good but not perfect
I have a size 8.5 EE foot. This was the only boot that I could find that was close to being my size. I went with the 43 and indeed the boot was a little long, but I can wear think winter socks and its fits fine; so it runs true to size.
They are indeed waterproof. I rode for 6+ hours in the rain and my feet stayed bone dry. This was great! I have not ridden them in hot weather, but I'm not expecting them to keep my feet cool. Seems to be made of plastic, so if you live in death valley this might not be the boot for you.
The bad: The soles & footbed suck. They are slippery & thin. I am short so my bike is a challenge already, but I dumped it in a parking lot because my foot slipped on the pavement. My regular boots have about an inch sole, these are maybe 1/4". I took these to a cobbler and had an inch added and an ice grip put on the front of the soles. The footbed that they come with has no arch support so I added superfeet footbeds and they are much better.
So after $120 in modifications they are great! If you are tall and don't need added height you would only need to have the grip changed, that would have cost me $30 less. Oh and because the sole is plastic it has an oil added to it so it bends, this means that I will need to have the new soles re-glued every few years.
