A purpose built boot that may or may not be for you
I upgraded to these from Sidi Vertebra Tepors I wore for many years. The sizing was the same for both boots. Both fit me well. Both are easy to get in and out of quickly.

The pros of these boots are well documented; basically they are armored tanks for your feet and lower legs. You want protection, you've got it. You could die in a drone strike and your feet would be undamaged.

The point I want to stress is, you aren't just trading more money for more protection here, vs cheaper, lighter weight boots. You are also trading feeling and comfort. Compared to my Tepors, I can't feel the shifter at all. My feet feel like they are in casts. These are big, hulking heavy boots and it takes some getting used to. They're also substantially more difficult to walk around in, and they are hotter to wear. I couldn't ride with them until I adjusted the gear shifter upwards. It's a big boot to swing around the shifter to go from shifting up to down. I feel very clumsy in them and I've had a few accidental clutchless shifts in the acclimation. With the Tepors I could so easily modulate the pressure I put on the rear brake and shifter, just seamless integration between me and the controls, but not so with these. Its like my feet are numb.
Now that being said, I want maximum protection and I'm going to get used to the huge size and lack of feel of these boots. But just be aware what you are getting into here. These may actually be more boot than you want to deal with. They are costly and cumbersome, in exchange for hardcore protection. For commuting, which is what I use them for, they may be overkill.

Barely water resistant!
Great protection and very comfortable but if you ride in really wet weather all day, your feet WILL get wet with these boots. In fact you will have water standing in the boot. I just rode for 7 days in Iceland. All three riders wearing these boots had wet feet everyday we rode in the rain. Spend some money and get the Goretex if you intend to stay dry. I gave mine away after the ride.

Fantastic comfort and protection
These boots are fantastic if you have narrow feet. I normally wear a 13A and I have been swimming in other boots I have tried on. The ankle protection is fantastic (like ski boots), more on this later.

Found a pair I could try on last month and bought them. The more I wear them the happier I have become.

Got first hand experience of how protective they are last Saturday. I was riding the saddle over 4 Peaks Mountain in Maricopa AZ. I am new to dirt riding so this was a challenging ride for me. Half-way through the ride I lost control of the bike and it ended up crashing directly on my ankle. I was convinced my ankle was trashed. I did end up with a broken leg (fibula up near the knee), but my ankle is fine.

These boots did everything I could have asked for. They are not even damaged. If necessary, I would replace them without a question asked.

Attached x-ray is of my leg after the crash.

Quality product. Ideal for any adventure rider!
I have been riding in the Adventure Rain boots for about a 1500 miles. So far, they have lived up to their reputation.

Once they had arrived I checked their fit and it was as expected. Of course, with any new leather boot it must be broken-in so I wore them around the house as much as possible. One trick that always helps speed up the breaking in process is to simply get them wet (exterior only) and continue to wear them around for a few hours and then let them dry. I repeated this for about 3 days and that was about all that was necessary. This is what works for me.

The only negative thing that I noticed about the boot was the notorious squeak that I read in all of the reviews. And yes it is annoying! The squeak is due to the material associated with the hinge around the ankle while you are walking in the boots. But I found a simple solution in my garage. I used some “silicone” garage door lubricant spray. Just hold each boot upside down and spray a small amount of silicone lube in the hinge area allowing the silicone to wick underneath the hinge material along the back of the boot. Wipe off the excess silicone and you should notice an immediate improvement. If there is still some squeak re-apply more silicone lube. Just remember to wipe off any excess.

It will be difficult to feel the shift lever until the boots are well broken-in. It’s not really a big deal for an experienced rider. About three weeks into riding this was a non-issue.

In the beginning I was debating weather or not to get the Adventure Gortex instead of the Rain boots. After reading the reviews I found that the Adventure Rains held up just fine so I elected to save the extra 100 dollars to feed my Starbucks habit. Lol. The boots are most certainly waterproof! I took a weekend long rider refresher course where it poured down rain the entire weekend…. My feet were bone dry and never once got cold(42 degree weather). I usually swear by GORTEX but in this case, SIDI makes a quality product that far exceeded my expectations.

One more thing, if you are wearing the adventure rains and off-road adventure riding pants that have kneepads, hip pads ect. It will be a challenge to sit down in the bathroom! The boots ride just below the knee so you may just want to kick them off before hand...

As far as their appearance goes, my hat goes off to SIDI for a job well done!!!! Like with all Sidi products, great design, craftsmanship and unmatched quality.

Wet feet
I like everything about the boot, but they don't keep your feet dry. If you drive in rain for 20-30 minutes, these boots will probably keep you dry. Anything over 30 minutes and your feet get wet. once these boots get wet it takes a long time to dry. I now live in Korea and it will cost to much to send them back to the states and will take at least 4 weeks. I also sent an email to Sidi 6 weeks ago and they have NOT replied. I didn't buy these at Revzilla and I wish that I did!!

Great boot... But squeaky until fixed...
I debated back and forth between buying the Goretex or rain model. After reading enough reviews on advrider and elsewhere of guys with the rains getting wet toes on long wet days, I decided to spend the extra money on the Goretex, as I hate wet feet. I've done several-hour rides in the rain, walked through creeks, and even sat in a chair in the middle of a creek that was about 7-8" high and ate a quick lunch with my feet submerged the entire time (just to test the waterproofness). I've yet to have a single drop of water leak through!

They're very comfortable to walk in after the first few days of breaking them in. Shifting was a bit clunky at first, at least for me coming from a more street-oriented boot, but I got used to it after a few days.

I normally wear a size 10-11 US, depending upon the brand of shoe or boot. I replaced my size 45 Alpinestars SMX-5s with these boots in a size 45. The fit was perfect. I couldn't be happier.

I only have two real complaints, but both are minor and/or fixable. First is airflow... There is none! However, I knew that airflow would be pretty nonexistent when I bought them. Airflow for waterproofness was a tradeoff I was willing to make. Second is the notorious Sidi squeak! The squeak was so unbearable that I had considered returning them.. However, I did a Google search and found lots of people recommending mink oil. I bought a can and put the mink oil everywhere, concentrating on the hinges... and the squeak is 100% completely gone! I don't know how long it will last until I have to reapply, but I did this a couple of months ago (with daily riding) and it is still squeak-free!

I've only had these boots for a couple months and maybe 3000ish miles of riding, so I can't comment on durability, but so far so good. I would definitely recommend these boots.

Comfortable and Durable
Upgraded to the Sidi Adventure Rains after witnessing a friend who was wearing the Sidis take a fall in which the full weight of bike landed on top of the ankle portion of the boot. Boot held up, and my friend experienced absolutely no lower leg or ankle injuries. Knowing full well that the mid-grade boots I was wearing at the time would not have held up the way the Sidis had, I wasted no time in ordering a pair for myself.

Boots arrived on time and in perfect condition. Very well built and comfortable, although they do take a fair amount of breaking in. A few evening walks around the block and a several rides seem to have done the trick, and they just keep getting better. I know people often complain about the infamous "Sidi Squeak", but I look at it as part of the "character" of the boot, and it's nothing that can't be solved by a little powdered graphite from my kid's old pinewood derby kit.

One important note for guys with bigger feet: I'm a size 13 and these boots are very large in their dimensions when compared to the average adventure boots. Large lug soles, thick construction and big, reinforced toe wells make for a quite bulky overall size. First time I went for a ride I discovered that my foot in the new boots could not comfortably fit under my stock gear shift lever no matter how many adjustments I made mechanically. Lots of missed shifts and cramping with the new boots made for an unsafe ride. Nothing that couldn't be solved by a new, adjustable length gear shift lever (which is what I ultimately did), but guys with larger feet should be prepared to have to make some mechanical adjustments or outright replacements to equipment if they go with this boot.

Aside from this minor inconvenience the boots do live up to the hype. Hopefully I never have to test the protection level of the Sidis, but having seen them in action during my friends off-bike adventure I'm already a true believer.

great boot
My normal shoe size is 10.5 D. i got the size 45 boots and they fit perfectly.

Initially these boots were very stiff, and I think I was trying to buckle them too tightly. This combination made me wonder if I could ever get them broken in...but after a couple of weeks they have become extremely comfortable. I had a need to run a couple hundred yards in order to take a photograph I wanted, and they were not clumsy at all. This is an all-day, very comfortable and protective boot.

One issue: they started to make considerable noise when I would walk. I shot a blast of teflon spray into both the ankle pivot joints and the point where the plastic achilles tendon protector tucks beneath the boot material high on the back of each boot, and that silenced them.

Great Boots
I took these boots straight out of the box to a 5 day / 2,000 km ride. Boots fit perfectly with thick socks, a bit loose with regular socks. Protection and comfort were perfect. Haven't had a chance to try them out in the rain or other wet conditions yet. Only little issue is that they squeak a lot when walking around in them, so if you are planning to sneak out of the house for a ride, might not be the best boots to try with...

Not what I expected...at all
After many years away from dirt, I got off the street and bak in to offroad riding. I decided to not worry about price when buying a boot, but to just buy something with great protection. I loved what I was seeing with the ankle hinge, and the lug-type soles, so I pulled the trigger on these SIDI Adventure Rain's. They look great and fit fantastic. Extremely comfortable right out of the box, but I would never trust my ankles to these boots. What appears to be rigid plastic encasing the ankle is actually more like a heavy truck mudflap type of material. Look at the picture...is that what $400 worth of ankle protection should look like?

Revzilla was awesome with fast shipping and gave no fuss whatsoever about returning/exchanging them for something else. Zero complaints there!

Used SIDI cycling shoes for 25+ years and seem to last beyond reasonable expectations. Figured same for MC boots. Researched boots and SIDI continuously came out on top in numerous reviews. Once you get the sizing squared away (ordered 43 for size 9 per sizing chart, a touch big and swapped out for 42 which was spot on for me), protection, fit and quality are excellent.

They were too expensive, the Gortex was way to expensive and I needed a set of boots that would keep the new Harley street 500 from eating into my legs. They keep the water out and the perspiration in. On cool days they are great. On hot days they don't breath at all.

Reviews here and on advrider were consistently good. I chose over MX boots (eg CHARGER) because they didn't provide walkability when off the bike. ADVENTURE does. I chose over the DISCOVERY boot because ADVENTURE seems to have a little stiffer ankle protection. I tried some A*, but the SIDI felt more solid to me.
Royce K on Jan 11, 2015
With a size 15/50 shoe, my choices in this adventure type boot are rather limited. After much on- line searching, I chose to purchase the Sidi adventure rain boots based on all the good reviews posted on Revzilla. It more money than I intended to spend, but the overwhelmingly positive feedback was the deciding factor.
Now, I just hope they fit as promised!
Richard A on Jan 9, 2015
Watched a lot of videos and read a lot of reviews and these seem to have all the aspects of protection, comfort and WP that I wanted. They are more expensive than other boots for sure, but these seem like "you get what you pay for", and as others have said, "Come off the bike once and don't get hurt and you've paid for the gear!"

Is the overall height of the SIDI Adventure Rain boot lower than the Forma Adventure? Any dimensions available?
Marc M on Jan 8, 2016
Hey guys - great site. In the video review of the Adventure Rain boot, Anthony refers to it as "waterproof". How much additional water protection would I have if I spent the additional $$$ on the Goretex version?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Save your money! GORTEX is a great product but Sidi's version of the waterproof breathable material is top notch. The reason it is 100 buck more is because, GORTEX mandates that they be intimately involved with the design and manufacturing of ANY product that sports the GORTEX name. Hints, the extra cost due to GORTEX getting involved in the process.
Could you give me the height of the boot from the bottom of the ankle to the top of the boot (not including the sole)

These things squeak like crazy! Any fixes? I've tried silicone lube, graphite powder, neither worked long-run.

BEST ANSWER: I've found Lexol Leather Conditioner (Google, "Lexol Leather Conditioner"), LIBERALLY applied, effectively reduces (temporarily) the characteristic SIDI Adventure Rain Boot squeak.

My cobbler applied the product to my non-GoreTex Sidis with dramatic, albeit temporary, results.

Maybe the treatment isn't complete, and it's certainly not permanent (must be re-applied), but . . . I found the noise abatement to be effective, to some extent.
Do you find these boots too hot to wear during the summer? Do they really let moisture out or is like wearing a plastic bag over your feet? Trying to decide between the Sidi Adventure Rain and the Alpinestars Gore text Toucan boots - looking for something with protection but that can be worn year round 90% street -.

BEST ANSWER: Yes they are warmer but not terribly so that they would be a deal breaker. The boots are incredibly well made, fit comfortably and are true to size. Actually the biggest issue I have with them is the noise. There's an articulated joint that separates the lower boot from the upper shaft, the joint squeaks a lot when you're off the bike and walking around. I figure if I'm ridin then I ain't walkin and if I ain't walkin then I ain't squeaking! Buy the boots and ride often
Hey folks. One question: How are those boots for standing on the pegs for any amount of time? Do they flex where you can feel the peg after awhile or do they have some sort of steel shank? Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Not sure on construction details but the boots have been very comfortable and supportive since taking delivery this summer. Their construction quality is comparable to top of the line ski boots and I am satisfied. Longest ride with them has been only a couple of days, but they have a much heavier and stiffer sole than my Tourmaster Solution 2s (which feel like bedroom slippers in comparison). They are very comfortable to walk in and much less likely to slip on debris or oil/gas than the Solution 2s.

I have a Wee Strom with offroad pegs and I did have to re-adjust the shift - the combination of wide peg and thick/stiff sole needed more clearance. They work fine on my street bikes with no change. I have been learning to ride dirt/mild offroad on the Strom (K-60s on it) and so have spent only short periods of continual standing - no more than 15 minutes at a crack and 2 hrs at a time. (More my own skill limit than equipment.) No complaints however - I would do it again.
How is this boot for people with wide feet?
A shopper on May 6, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Matt, I'm not a wide foot/shoe experienced person, and I hate to give you a wishy-washy answer, but here goes....

Long answer: The boot fastening design is almost identical to ski boots, so there is enough length in the ratcheting tabs to really expand the top of the boot. I have standard/narrow feet and I am usually a 10.5 street shoe. I ordered an 11 to allow for cold weather socks, double layers, etc and I have PLENTY of boot space to work with. My ratchets are adjusted almost all the way in, meaning I have TONS of ratchet slack for expansion. Not having 2EE feet, and going by feel, I would say that, given that this boot is indeed awesome (no kidding), if I were you, I would take a chance and order 1/2 to 1 size up for you to create a little wiggle room for your big dogs. That one size up combined with an excellent ski-boot type adjustable system *may* accommodate your wide dogs. Worst case scenario, RZ has an excellent return policy. Just throw 'em back in the original box, include all tags etc and send back for full refund. (I don't endorse or work for RZ; they've just been a pleasure to deal with, so I give any company like this honorable mention.)

Short answer: This boot is so great, it's worth a shot!
Hello All:

I recently purchased these boots and tried them out for the first time today. They were incredibly stiff; so much so that I could barely upshift. For those of you who own this boot - how long did the break in take? How much did they break in and what did you do to break them in? I'm assuming (hoping) that the break in is all that's needed because riding with these boots on is basically impossible for me now.

Thanks in advance for your comments.

Eric

BEST ANSWER: I had same thought first couple of rides. Advice is to wear the boots and walk around - for a few hours. They will break in, especially if you flex them while you're walking. It took a few weeks but I used them on a ten day motorcyle tour in italy wearing them 8 to 10 hours a day and riding at least six hours each day and they were fine. Didn't miss a shift because of the boots!
Looking for an 80/20% road/dirt boot. As much protection as I can get without going to a full MX boot. Need advice. Ride all year round, want a 4 season boot?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is an awesome dual purpose boot! I ride a BMW R1200 GS Adventure and the Sidi Adventure fits my riding style and needs perfectly. Ex. Just after purchasing these boots in Aug. 2014, I rode from Baltimore, MD up to Maine then across New Hampshire and into Vermont. Most of the time I was on paved asphalt but did quite a few hours on dirt and gravel fire roads. I even did several hours of hiking on foot in these boots and they were comfortable! It is true these boots develop a unique "squeak" after breaking in but it's a small price to pay for a great fitting, comfortable boot. Also, back home in Oct. of last year we had a full moon high tide and I spent about 30 minutes walking around my neighborhood wearing my Sidis in shin-deep water without a single leak.
Will these boots work with motocross type knee/shin guards?
A shopper on May 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've used knee guards with the shin guards and just tucked them in . Did UTBDR this way not the most comfortable but works. Ideally I'm still looking for just knee guards without the shin guards as the sidi adv rains have them built in. Hope that helps.
