Sidi Adventure GTX Boots
The Sidi Adventure GTX Boots are the gold standard for adventure riding boots. Sidi pulled all the best bits from their famous line of off-road boots and combined them with the legendary quality of their road boots to create the glorious hybrid cyborg that is the Adventure Gore-Tex Boots. A bit more comfortable than off-road boots, the Adventure GTX boots incorporate a hinged ankle support, a rigid and shock-resistant heel cup and composite inner sole with a top grain leather construction, replaceable cam-lock buckles and a sweat wicking cambrelle lining.
The slim adjustable calf fits easily inside the pant leg of most riding pants, something that is not always possible with a traditional off-road boot, making them all the more attractive to ADV advocates and enduro enthusiasts. To top off the list of premium features these boots are 100% waterproof and breathable with a Gore-Tex lining that is Guaranteed to Keep You Dry.
- Soft rubber sole for maximum grip
- Replaceable strap system
- Top grain leather construction
- Composite inner sole
- Removable arch support
- Exclusive cam-lock buckle system
- Cambrelle lining
- Slim, cool non-bootie design
- Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection
- Split grain leather inner anti-wear/heat panel
- Single Flex System upper

Reviews & Questions
As the name suggests, the Sidi Adventure Gore-tex has the Gore-tex liner integrated into the boot itself. This is a waterproof, windproof, breathable, and moisture wicking material that keeps your feet protected from the elements while allowing the environment inside the boot to remain comfortable. This means you can ride year round with this boot making it the only boot you need no matter the season or the weather.
Sure, most of the boots I mentioned have a Gore-tex liner or an equivalent so why pay more than $150 more of the Sidi Adventure Gore-tex? Simply the protection that the Adventure Gore-tex offers is heads and shoulders above the competition. As the saying goes, "you don't dress for the ride, you dress for the fall". While heel box, toe box, and shin reinforcement is present throughout the boots mentioned, the Adventure Gore-tex pushes you into that next level with the external heel, malleolus (ankle), and Achilles protection. In the event of a crash or accident you can expect every one of your foot's pivot points to do just that - pivot, twist, and flex. While crush injuries are almost impossible to prevent from direct impact, the really nasty stuff comes from the twisting and flexing that happens when you skip, slide, and bounce. The external sliders along the exterior of the boot coupled with the reinforcement lock your foot into the boot eliminating the natural weakness of the ankle. No other equivalent boot has this level of protection, period.
But with all this protection does the boot feel like you're wearing blocks? Absolutely not. The non-bootie design means that you have great feel in the toe which is important for finding and feeling the shift and rear brake levers. The sole is a work boot style so it has big lugs and contact area for when you are stationary on the bike. And the pivot point for the single flex upper is anatomically aligned with your ankle so you aren't fighting the boot to move your foot while on or off the bike. I honestly don't even notice a difference when I wear them which is exactly what I want in a boot. If it's cumbersome and clunky you won't wear them which defeats the point of buying the boots in the first place.
And the final selling point for me was the attachment style of the sole. With many boots in this category the soles are non-replaceable (kinda like those Nike's), so once you burn through them you have to buy another pair. The Adventure Gore-tex's sole is a Goodyear welt design which means that the soles are 100% replaceable and not integrated into the Gore-tex of the boot itself. This significantly increases the life span of the boot and means that you can refresh your boots for $50 and some time at a cobbler rather than dropping several hundred dollars every couple of years.
Just like helmets protect your brain and a jacket/suit protects your skin, purpose built motorcycle boots are a vital component of your overall protection system. The money spent on good quality gear saves you money in the long run not only by not having to repurchase the same stuff after a year or two but hospital bills aren't exactly cheap. If you could spend $500 to save $5000 why wouldn't you?
How do I know, because I have just returned home (by plane) after completing most (about 4k of a 5k) of a planned ride and due in no small part to the protection provided these great boots I still have two feet/legs and will make a 100% recovery from an accident which could have resulted in serious injury. I was lucky to be wearing these boots when i was riding towards an oncoming 4x4 who was driving far to fast for the conditions, lost control at 70/80 km/h on a sand road, failed to stay on his side of the road and drove at an angle straight into the (R) side of my bike and into my (R) foot/leg. Result, front of 4x4 damaged, rim dented and front tyre off the rim on the 4x4 and a broken DR650.
The boot (and my foot/leg) took a big hit from the 4x4. The bottom cam lock on the (R) boot was twisted and broken but the boot held firm and protected me from serious injury.
These were my first pair of Sidi boots and I purchased them largely because of the Revzills on-line product review/evaluation.
Recommend these boot - yes and without reservation.
Now all a have to do is fix my boots, work out what to do about the bike, wait for the leg to heal (4-6 weeks before the cast comes off) and get out there for another ride.
Thank you Revzilla and thank you Sidi.
So I bit the bullet and got the Sidi Adventure Rain Goretex and I could not be happier. My feet are always dry through full days of riding in the rain, riding in snow, and river crossings. The rest of my team has wet feet at the end of the day, and I do not.
They are probably the best moto-related purchase I've ever made. I had to have someone bring them down to me in Ecuador because you can't get them easily down here.
They are stiffer than the Discovery, and provide more ankle support. They also fit my calves way better. They are easier to put on and take off due to only having two buckles and a large velcro release at the top. The Discovery has basically no ankle support so these feel WAY better.
They also have an aggressive sole pattern which grips more on the ground. However, the sole is not a real stitched sole like on the discovery, it's a two part plastic and rubber sole. I think you can resole it easily enough, but it's not quite as high quality as the Discovery.
In addition, the last is very narrow compared to the Discovery and other boots I've had. I don't know why they made that choice, but it's noticeable. I'd rather have a bit more room, and if you have wide feet I don't think these would fit you.
Finally, as some other reviewers have noted, they squeak like h**l when you walk. I hiked a few miles in them at Machu Picchu and they were comfortable and held up well. They also look unobtrusive and you can wear them under jeans or riding pants and no one thinks you look like a lunatic.
I have ridden about 3000 miles in these in the last month and I give them an unqualified thumbs up. I wear them riding and walking every day. They are the best boots I've ever had, and they really do keep you dry.
In true Revzilla fashion, I ordered these, the last pair in my size, on a Thursday and received them Friday. Open the box and am greeted with that unmistakeable smell: the outstanding reek of quality and luxury. These boots are beautifully made and detailed. Onto the feet they go...
What a surprise! They went on easily with no struggling to clear my instep through the vamp, the width was ample enough for my wide feet, with even enough clearance for a sort of pre-bunion pressure point on my right great toe. (Many times I need to use a boot stretcher to gain a bit more width on conventionally lasted boots). The tall boots actually accommodated my Popeye-like legs with enough velcro on the uppers to close securely, and the shin guard is positioned precisely where it will offer maximum protection to the shinbones. There are no hot spots in these boots, no binding or pressure on the anklebones, none of the usual concerns. Simply, the most comfortable big boots imaginable.
These are big, meaning substantial and tall. My pair weighs in at exactly 6 pounds (size 10/44), so I won't be looking forward to much hiking or a gasoline walk of shame in these, but for sitting on my sport tourer for hours or days on end I am going to be comfortable and completely protected which is what this boot is all about. (For comparison, my Sidi Vertigo's weigh in at exactly 4 pounds). The soles are extremely grippy and quite flexible so you won't be stumbling around like Frankenstein. You are not going to have the same "feel" or agility with these as you will with a lighter race/track oriented boot, but those boots are not capable of offering the bomb-proof protection of the Adventure Gore-Tex's.
To sum up: I am delighted to find exactly the boot I wanted that actually fits ME, comfortably and securely. These are extremely well-made, probably among the best in the category. I have had good experiences with Sidi products in the past, and these boots probably make me a Sidi-only buyer for life.
The boots are comfortable and offer good protection. I've worn them from Inuvik to Cabo in all weather. Discouraging to spend top dollar and have the boots leak after all the hype.
1. Fit: Perfect. I wear USA size 11-11.5 and got the size 11/45 boot. The fit was as good as it gets. The adjustability of the mechanism to secure the boot allows you to set the fit precisely - loose, tight, whatever. To properly protect, the fit needs to be as snug as you can make it while still allowing comfortable wear; thus, I adjusted them to fit like a soft vice-grip.
2. Comfort: Good. Minimum break-in period. The boots are initially stiff, but that's due to the excellent protective qualities of the boot and the newness of any boot. As always, I first treated the boot before first use. Leather needs treatment no matter the boot. The gore-tex will keep water out, but for a leather boot to last and wear properly leather treatment is essential. After the treatment, which itself helps soften leather boots, any slight squeaks resulting from friction between the boot components were gone. After a single ride (in rain by the way), the boots were largely broke-in and very comfy. (Of course no moisture entered the boot.) They are also comfortable and flexible for walking around when you get where you are going. That was somewhat of surprise to me given their rugged protectiveness.
3. Protection: VERY good. It is obvious this boot will keep your foot/ankle/shin well guarded from injury. The fact that this can be done while still allowing comfort and mobility is truly astounding and a tribute to SIDI's boot design team.
4. Usage while riding: Good. These are protective boots; therefore, it is silly to expect the flexibility of a light hiking boot or running shoe. There is an element of stiffness that is necessary since a major function of the boot is to restrict ankle/foot over-extension or breakage during a crash as well as flesh and bone destruction from sliding on pavement with your leg possibly under the bike. It takes a bit of practice to get used to shifting with these boots and may require slight adjustment of the shift lever. But it is not much considering the extreme level of protection these boots provide. I also have some high quality touring boots for use on my K1600GTL touring bike, and they do not possess the "adventure" extreme protective features. These boots seem no more restrictive than them.
5: Durability/lifetime: These appear to be VERY durable boots, and I suspect that, given the fact the boot components are replaceable, they can last for years. This is compounded by the fact that they appear to have the capability to be resoled. I didn't see that in any boot descriptions or videos, but since the sole is stitched on, I assume resoling is available. That is a huge thing if you want to use them for years, particularly since the nice somewhat soft and grippy "Vibram" looking sole may wear down in a matter of months or a couple of years depending on how much use they get. This is not a bad thing since its softness aids in its ability to grip on hard surfaces. I wouldn't want it any other way.
General comments: I use these while riding my KTM 1190 Adventure, which is a tall bike due to the off road type suspension. I could not flat-foot that bike despite my 5'11" height. Prior to this boot my heel was always slightly off the ground while sitting. These boots surprisingly solved that problem! I guess their sole and footbed add some height, because I can now flat-foot my KTM. Nice from a confidence perspective. :)
I love these boots and expect to wear them a LOT. They are not cheap, but as usual you get what you pay for. The ability to obtain replacement parts combined with resole capability and general ruggedness mean these boots will last numerous years if you take care of them and likely save you money over the time you own them.
* Excellent ankle protection.
* Fast & easy buckle/velcro access.
* Considering what it is, mobility is not bad at all.
* You best wear good moisture wicking socks, gets warm in there. Recommend the Moto-Skiveez socks. (No, I don't work for either RevZ or M-S).
* Some people have reported heavy squeaking. I find that the soles do squeak on tile floors and such. Price to pay for good grip. Some others report the leather squeaks against the buckles. Use a leather shoe conditioner and BHAM!
The sole on the new one is now coming loose. I'm not that hard on the boots riding the GS, but it started me looking again.
The TCX problem is (a) the sole coming loose and (b) the sole is not stiff enough when standing on the pegs off-road.
I purchased the Forma Terra Boots but returned them. The boot was very high quality but the boot sole was motocross stiff and the top of the boot was quite wide and my riding pants wouldn't go over easily. The toe box on the Forma was very wide, still OK but wider than my normal size 12 foot required. They were basically a small step down from the Tech 8 and really not what I needed.
The SIDI is right between the TCX and Forma boots. The soles flex enough to walk but just stiff enough standing on the pegs. The protection is good and the top of the boot narrow enough to easily go over my old Rallye 2 pants which are very narrow at the leg bottom. A stitched sole should not come off like the TCX.
I purchased the rain version first and they looked good. But felt that I wanted real leather and the Gore-Tex warranty, so I returned for the more expensive version. I'll keep for 10 years if they hold up.
A minor nit is that when sliding the shifting foot the sole has lugs that catch the peg when shifting. I ride with the balls of my feet, slide down to shift, then back on the balls. With lugs its more of a deliberate lift foot up rather than a sliding down. A very minor annoyance that I notice sometimes.
The other minor thing is the squeak. They didn't squeak until the 2nd ride. Some silicon spray at the joints cut about 80% of the noise so its quite acceptable for the moment.
Otherwise a perfect boot. 1000 miles of on and off road and very happy with the looks, comfort and performance. Took a few years to finally pull the trigger and get them but glad I did.
waterproof, but also comfort for touring and walking when off of the bike. Is this boot too heavily weighted toward off road for my style? Any input would be appreciated. If this isn't the right boot...any recommendations?
The Biker-Land.DE website is obviously a German company and the boot price is €305 Euros which translates into about $415 USD.
As far as I know SIDI is an Italian company and the only thing that seems to make sense about the large disparity in price would be shipping charges & import duty into the US from Europe.
Depending on where you live Biker-Land.DE may or may not be a good deal. I find Revzilla's pricing to be very competitive and if any issues arise that call for a return of goods, that initial great price will quickly become a thing of the past.
Is the fit identical between the Rain and Gore? Thx!
