SIDI Armada Gore-Tex Boots

The SIDI Armada Gore Tex Boot is two boots in one! Featuring a wrap-around upper with ankle support beams can be removed to transform the Armada from an adventure boot to a touring boot. Equipped with the world famous Gore Tex highly breathable and waterproof membrane to add a waterproof yet highly breathable barrier between the elements and the rider’s feet. The Gore-Tex membrane breathes more than any other membrane, thus the rider’s feet will stay cooler in warm weather with a Gore Tex equipped boot.

The Armada is lined throughout with a lightweight, perforated, Teflon-treated fabric in order to allow moisture to "breath." This moisture is quickly transferred to the top grain microfiber outer, which causes it to dry quickly with no mold build up.

Features:

  • Top grain microfiber construction
  • Double stitched in all high stress areas
  • Secure VELCRO® brand closures over full length zipper entry/closure system
  • Dual position zipper closure points to adapt to any calf size
  • An elastic panel adjacent to the entry zipper allows a bind free zip and improved fit
  • Full length inner gaiter
  • Nylon inner sole with removable arch support pad
  • Honeycomb elastic panels above the arch area makes for a very comfortable boot
  • Exterior high impact heel protection
  • External and internal anti twist ankle protection
  • Internal toe protection
  • Cambrelle lining 
  • High grip toe shift-brake pad
  • Padded shin plates
  • Double stitched in all high stress areas
  • Bonded non-slip lug type sole
  • Reflective points above the heel

A very nice boot with a little fitament issue.
I bought these as an all-around riding boot. I ride mostly pavement, though I may get into some fire & dirt-road riding this year with my Tiger 800. I was looking at the Adventure GoreTex at first because I wanted a waterproof boot with more protection than my 'street' boots, but didn't really want all the buckles and straps so as not to stand out as much off the bike when out in social situations, so I thought I'd try this new model. Note - I didn't buy these for the 'removable' outer cuff, which I thought was kind of gimmicky, and don't ever really plan on taking it off. I don't think they have the same level of protection as the Adventure or Crossfire boots, though, which is why I'm docking them a point in that category. Not really a minus, per se, but a boot geared toward a different purpose.

I've owned a pair of Sidi Doha boots that were a great fit and ordered these in the same size. The front of the foot pocket is a great fit. Not too long, not too narrow or wide (though I tend to prefer wider shoes / boots). There does seem to be a lot of extra room in the heel, though, and my heel lifts a bit. I don't have large feet, but never remembered having this issue with any other boot (including ski boots) that I've previously owned. I mitigated this somewhat with a $10 insole (which I may switch out for a 'heel cup'), but really wish the boot had a snugger fit in the heel out of the box. I don't have skinny legs, but these boots also have plenty of room in the calf, to the point I almost wish they could be adjusted snugger. They work great with pants tucked in, though.

I've ridden a few times with these, putting on about 200 miles while in the 40-50 degree range. They were a little cold at first, mostly a seeping cold through the sole, which the insole I added to adjust the fit (non insulated) seemed to help with. Now they're perfect in this temperature range with a pair of polypro ski socks. I actually hope they'll stay a bit on the cool side as the weather warms, allowing me to just change my socks to a lighter weight. I haven't had them in the rain yet, but looking at their construction I don't think I'll have any problem with water getting in.

Off the bike, the boots are comfortable and not too stiff. Fine for casual wear if you're not going to do any significant walking hiking. They're still relatively new, but do squeak alot. They're also very easy to get on / off.

Overall, I'm very happy with them, and hope they'll last me many years.

Adventure boot and street boot in one!
I have a Yamaha Tenere, and ride on and off pavement. I've seen too many people break legs with poor boots, and I wanted one boot that would protect me off-road but I could also wear for street cruising and commuting. This is it!
I was dubious when I first got them (would REALLY like to see more protection on the shin), but with the add-on upper the ankle and leg protection feels really good. Remove the upper and you have excellent road / commuting boots that still fit inside your pants (even if they're not boot cut).
Three notes - two just so you know, and one I'd like to see changed:
The toe box is tall, and I lost a little feel on the shift lever because there's some dead space between the tops of my toes and the leather of the boot. I have to pay attention or I don't release enough on the shift lever and I miss up-shifts. It's not a big gap, and I fix that by getting used to the new angle.
Removing/replacing the uppers takes ten to fifteen minutes. Gets a little shorter each time, really not that big a deal, and the threaded metal insert the screw goes into on the boot may rotate inside the pocket. That's not a big deal - push against it from the inside and you can still screw it down pretty tight - and I've never had anything work itself loose.
Lastly, I would REALLY like to see more beef on the shin protection. Thankfully I haven't needed it, and there's no doubt this boot with the upper would be better protection that a single layer of leather (or less). But Sidi knows enough about protection to admit there should be a little more here, and if you fix this please let existing owners buy the new uppers separately so they can upgrade!
As I said, I had high hopes when I ordered these - I was a little disappointed when I first got them (felt like maybe I didn't have enough off-road protection), but have put about ten thousand miles on them and I don't think there's a better option out there for what I wanted: one boot for adventure riding and street/commuting.
PS: I have never had the squeaking problem.

Great Style, Protection & Gore-Tex
Sidi Armada Gore-Tex Boots; Size 9.5 US/43 EUR. Boots proved to be the most difficult decision by far which I’ll describe further below. The fit, specifically, was the biggest struggle. In fact, despite my extensive research, speaking with RevZilla and comparing the many various shoes I have to gauge an estimate, I ordered 8.5/42 initially based on all the information available which was too small and I had to send them back for a 43. Worth mention, the exchange was extremely easy and positive, just as Anthony describes in the video reviews. However, something to consider, I strongly recommend that to get a ‘true size’ all comparisons and estimates be based on measures captured with a Ralyn or Brannock device. That’s the funny looking metal thing that we all played with in the shoe stores that offers both a valid length and width measure of the foot. This would take all the nebulous guessing and disparity out, even among the EUR sizes listed by the various boot producers. RevZilla then need not worry about each individual company’s sizing difference/charts to make estimates. Then you could offer all products a comparison to the easily obtained, real ‘true to size’ measure. Until then, I’ll offer that I wear 9.5US in Asics running shoe, 9.5US in New Balance runners, and 10US in Vans skate shoes. The 43 Sidi Armada fit me fine. My Ralyn/Brannock measure reflects 9.5US with C/D width. Now, on to function… I researched every road worthy boot on RevZilla’s site (no, really). Then I defined my requirements in priority order; Gore-Tex (I hate wet, cold feet), solid protection, reliable/longevity, aesthetic appearance, replaceable sole/parts, and the myriad customer reviews. These Sidi’s have a nice lug sole with good functionality and solid protection. My suggestions for improvement are twofold. First, as Anthony points out in his review, I agree fully that the shin protector should absolutely be hard TPU. The heel cup, toe, sole, and vertical support is fantastic, but break-in time is required. These things are not the best for walking in the park, but they also don’t squeak either (at least not yet). I am skeptical though concerning the longevity of the vertical supports. When you bend and flex, the stress points are visible just about where the vertical mounting fasteners are affixed on each side. However, should this fail at some point in the future, it can be removed, although I personally want the added thickness for protection especially with no shin TPU. Zips work great, providing easy access. And, although, not yet tested in a rain shower, I got fairly wet in the dense morning dew on a 49F ride to work and my feet remained nice and dry! I recommend these boots to those with similar requirements who are willing to shell out the bucks for them. I do however suspect that there are likely other options of comparable quality and function at lesser cost. Time will determine overall value. And as a parting shot, the same tape described in my helmet review of the Scorpion EXO T1200 offers considerable addition to the three visibility dots provided from Sidi as seen in the pics. Safe Riding!

Great boots, but why the squeak...
The fit, finish, material, and attention to detail is excellent and what you expect for an expensive boot.

They are very comfortable for me and the wide toe box is a must have at least for me.

I wear them all day once I get to work and they are comfortable for the whole day.

They offer the level of protection that I want in a street boot.

I can't vouch for the waterproofness as of yet but if they are anything like the Adventure Gore-Tex they will be excellent.

Now for the niggle. They squeak. Nothing as bad as the Adventure Gore-Tex but it has gotten progressively worse as time has gone on. I am sure that Mink Oil will calm that down but it has not eliminated the issue on the Adventure Gore-Tex boots as yet.

Come on Sidi we know you can make a boot that will allow you to sneak up on a jack hammer operator, but this is not it...

Great looking boot.
Broke down and bought this boot and I'm glad that I spent the money. After my first 200 mile ride wearing them I was happy with my purchase. Took a little getting used to when shifting because the toe box was different from what I was used too. I ended up taking off the shin protectors for a better fit under my jeans. Great boot that you can wear with your clothing going out to diner or in the store and not feel out of place. Revzilla offered free shipping and they arrived fast. Very happy with purchase and look forward to years of use with this quality boot.

Great boot
I recently wore this boot 8+ hours/day in all kinds of road and weather conditions motorcycling out of the Ecuadorean Andes to the beach and then back up and over to the other side. I was extremely happy with them - very wearable and versatile. I recommend highly.

Love this boot!
I have been wearing this boot for over over a week now and I have to say that I really like it. The zipper makes for easy on/off a lower second zipper detent lets the upper cuff open up a bit more and adds a bit of airflo. I took the upper cuffs off in about 5 minutes.
This is the perfect boot if you want something a little more than a standard street boot, but I would go with something a little more beefy if I was going to trail ride.
All in all suits my needs perfectly.

What a great investment!
I bought these booths on bealf of the video critique of it. Beautiful booth. Nice to get in and out. I own a sport touring (St1300) and this booth is absolutely nice to drive with! I will not remove the upper peace since it is such a nice security add on!
Of course, this is not a booth to go for a 5 miles walk! But it will be very convenient on a day to day walking use. I did a 2 hours drive with it in near freezing condition. Very confortable even there! It will probably be a little hot on burning days... but that's life! Very happy about... The fact that I bought it here at Revzilla and I did, with their help a great choice on the sizing. Love it!
