sidi adventure rain versus alpinestars scout
What are the differences between the Adventure rain and Astars Scout boots? Both have lots of excellent reviews. But quite a difference in price. Also, for fit, I wear an 8.5 Nike. What would be most likely size for me in each boot? And lastly, do you ship these to Canada?
For the price the AS Scout is the much better buy. These are my two favorite brands. Sidi makes great products with excellent durability and comfort but I only REALLY love boots with Gore-tex. The Sidi Adv Rain squeak when you walk, are not truly waterproof, and cost much more, which would not feel like much of an upgrade over the Scout aside from nicer buckles. To get full waterproof, Sidi offers the Gore-tex Sidi Adventure which is an addittional $200 or so. I've had other Sidi Rain series boots and in heavy down pours over an hour they leak ... I mean your feet will be soaked in sustained downpours. If you want protection both products will be about the same. Just don't expect Gore-tex performance from either and you won't be disappointed.
