Sidi, the best boots on the planet? Or, tennis shoes made in China?
I've had my size 47's for a few weeks now. There is zero protection in the front of the boot. After about 100 miles the shifter rubber nubbins are mostly gone from the toe. There is no side to side strength in the front. When I first put them on, the gap in the laces looked like it should. I've worn them around the shop for a couple weeks and the vent panels have stretched so now the gap is almost touching on both sides.
The ankle appears to have some protection, but it's mostly from the foam. I can go to REI and buy any number of lightweight day-bike boots that will give me MUCH more protection for maybe $20 more.
These should only be trusted on short rides, but they say most crashes occur within a couple miles of my house...maybe I should move? :-)
Ok for a tennis shoe, but no way are they MOTORCYCLE boots. The build quality is pretty low, but they are $100 shipped shoes.
I have a pair of RS Taichi lightweight boots that I feel protected riding with, and my Vortices are incredible.
Bike night at the local riding school, standing for a few hours, is where I'll use them.
Hello Sidi? Please make some motorcycle boots that'll protect better than Converse Chuck Taylors.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Great for afternoon rides to, and evening rides back. The Gradient feature could only be topped by a Transitions-type auto darkening lens like the Bell helmets have.
BTW, I love my X-Twelve Helmet!
Yes, I recommend this product.
