These boots are extremely comfortable for riding and just walking around, there seems to be more cushion in the bootshaft then other comparable products. However the sizing is a little strange, I usually wear a size 12US boot, and I'm wearing a 10.5US comfortably with this SMX Plus.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These boots have exceeded my expectations for an entry level race/ road boot. When I went looking for boots in this price range, I was fully expecting to find boots clad in faux plastic trim (claiming to be protection), and this was the case for many I looked at. But after examining the Sidi Cobra, I was surprised at the amount of detail and safety put into this product. It supplies some of the safety features provided on a pro race boot with the comfort of a regular shoe (for standing or walking). The Cobra is perfect for the over enthusiastic road rider, without being over-kill. My only complaint is, they run a little large- I wear a US size 12.5 (Euro size 47) , and ended up buying the Cobra in a US size 11.5 (Euro size 46)- so beware when purchasing online!
Yes, I recommend this product.
