Well, I have a bias towards people on this board when it comes to trusting their ratings on various products, buuut, when I read this report on a famous website re: the Sidi Rains, my credulitity was slightly strained:- Very pleased with the comfort and walk-ability of these boots. Have ridden thru some 2 feet deep creek crossings feet stayed dry and warm. I also like the stable feel the sole gives when standing on the pegs. Closures are a bit tricky to set up but once you do they make the boot feel very secure. One thing that I am extremely pleased with is being able to shift and brake both seated and standing and being able to feel and locate the pedals easily which has been an issue with other Enduro Boots I've used Rides: 2011 Vespa LXV 150 Pegs? Wot?
