Can you post which model of SIDI you wear: Sidi Strada Evo Air, Sidi Doha
Where you bought them from? Strada from Motorcycle Superstore, Doha from New Enough
Price paid? $220, $170
What type of use? Street, I have dualsported the Dohas....but promptly figured out suede leather street mid height boots aren't good in the mud.
Pros? Good style, good fit, quality materials
Cons? Too much flex? This isn't really a con as I knew this buying these 2 models. If I wanted a full race boot I would have bought a full race boot.
What you would change about them? Nothing
And if possible a picture of your SIDI?
What size sneaker do you usually wear and what size boot did you get? Regular shoes: 10 (44), Sidi: 10 (44) 44 Sidi is a bit snug but not too bad.

Can you post which model of SIDI you wear: Way Rain
Where you bought them from? Motorcycle Superstore.
Price paid? $200 even. No shipping, no tax!
What type of use? Street.
Pros? Fits my narrow feet. Waterproof. Nice style, doesn't make me look like a power ranger.
Cons? Just got 'em, not broken in yet, so not sure. But I think they will get pretty hot for summer riding. Could use a little more arch support.
What you would change about them? Price.
And if possible a picture of your SIDI? See the MS web site.
What size sneaker do you usually wear and what size boot did you get? 9.5-10 which translates to Euro 44, and is the size I got.

Can you post which model of SIDI you wear: On Road Gore-Tex Boots
Where you bought them from? NewEnough
Price paid? $325
What type of use? Road
Pros? Well made, comfortable, waterproof. I would buy again, nice boot that doubles has a walking boot and casual enough that you can wear them with out screaming motorcycle boot.
Cons? Price - but the quality is there and feel I got what I paided for.
What you would change about them? Less plastic, more leather. Wish it was less cumbersome getting them on and off, but I like how secure it feels.
And if possible a picture of your SIDI?
What size sneaker do you usually wear and what size boot did you get? I have a wide foot and wear a shoe 10.5 or 11, Sidi 45 seems to be right, maybe a little loose.

After fretting over the new adventure rain boot, I decided to go for max protection with the crossfires. If I need water proofness I will wear sealskinz.

Can you post which model of SIDI you wear: SIDI Strada Rain

Where you bought them from? Bob's Cycle in Minneapolis. The guy there said that Sidi controls the price of their products quite firmly.

Price paid? $245

What type of use? touring/street/dirt roads/jeep trails

Pros? Very comfortable, look good around the office (not too clunky), warm on the cold days. They seem to be very well made. Haven't ridden in the rain yet, so can't vouch for waterproofness. Hasn't been too warm around here yet so can't say if they are too warm on hot days. I ride a BMW Boxer, so I get heat off the cylinder heads. If my feet get too warm I can just put them on top of the heads and let then catch some wind.

Cons? Velcro closures don't fit quite right for my foot. There is a lot of room in the calf area. Both of these could be a result of my chicken legs.

What you would change about them? Nothing

What size sneaker do you usually wear and what size boot did you get? 9.5 US Euro 44.

I just picked up a pair of Sidi Adventures for around $330. I only have about 150 miles on them, but so far they are great. Still have the Sidi squeak going on, but great boots anyway. I usually wear a 13 but found a 12 (47 EU) fits very well.

Can you post which model of SIDI you wear. 1. Canyon Gore-Tex
2. Discovery Rain

Where you bought them from? 1. New Enough 2. Bike Bandit

Price paid? 1. $250 2. $300

What type of use? 1. Everything. commuting, sport touring, dual sporting. 2. Dual sporting, occasional dirtbiking (not quite a MX boot)

Pros? 1. Great protection; good waterproofing; extremely well-made; decent looking. 2. Fantastic protection (ask the guy whose jeep fender I dented with my shin--nothing on the shin but a small welt, fender had broken headlight and a serious dent ); great waterproofing (many, many extreme watercrossings and days in the rain without leakage, except when water was above the top of the boot)

Cons? 1. Not tall enough to give the protection and support necessary on some dual sport rides; suede-like section pick up dirt, lint, etc.--although they can be treated with Doc Bailey's and brought back to life; can be hot--like all Gore-Tex boots I have owned. 2. Hot--see above; not quite the level of protection and support of a full-on MX boot; MX styling gets a look when you walk into the 7-11 and other non-motorcycle-centric places.

What you would change about them? 1 & 2: Nothing

And if possible a picture of your SIDI? Sorry.

What size sneaker do you usually wear and what size boot did you get? 9/43 (I think--I'll check it when I get home and edit this post if necessary.)
