Recently bought a pair of Sidi discovery rain boots, they look allot like the Sidi trials version. A little stiff at first but after a half dozen rides they feel great. After a year on my Gaerne trials oil boots they were pretty much shot and did not offer the protection I was after. Have ran my feet into a few rocks and the Gaerne boots did little to protect my toes, could also always feel the peg thru the boot way to much. Don't get me wrong the Gaerne is a great boot but I need more protection than they offer. The Sidi boots come with a removable toe kick plate, first thing I took off. Soles are not like the gum rubber Gaerne's but they feel good and am sure they will last allot longer. They also provide better toe protection (heavier, thicker leather) and feel more shock absorption thru the peg. The Gaerne boots seem to fatigue my ankles and legs more than the Sidi's as well. Time will tell but I think I made the right choice personally.
