Sidi Adventure GTX Boots Based on the outstanding success of the Sidi Adventure Rain Boots , it has been decided that the full Gore-Tex version of the boot will be imported from Italy. Previously this boot was only available in Europe. This ultimate adventure boot combines the best of both worlds (offroad and touring) into a boot that is extremely protective as well as comfortable both on and off the bike. With the Gore-Tex membrane these boots are 100 waterproof as well being highly breathable. These boots come with the Gore-Tex Guaranteed to Keep You Dry promise. Soft rubber sole for maximum grip. Replaceable strap system. Top grain leather construction. Composite inner sole. Removable arch support. Exclusive cam-lock buckle system. Cambrelle lining. Slim, cool non-bootie design. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection. Split grain leather inner anti-wear/heat panel. Single Flex System upper.
I find that these run true to size. My foot i almost exactly 10.5 and size 11 fit me pretty well. They are snug with a little room in the toe box and plenty of room for thicker socks. The outer dimensions are comparable to a construction boot, with a high toe that required me to adjust my shifter. The sole is very grippy on my rubber foot pegs, but also much softer than a standard boot sole. A couple of miles walking around the city left very noticeable wear on the heel. That being said, they are very comfortable, if a bit bulky to walk in, even for some distance. They break in quick. That big hinge provides a ton of support. I have a sprained ankle and can walk in these without any limp and much easier than in sneakers. They are comfortable 40°-60° weather, but I haven't tested them in other extremes . I've been wearing them around the office to break in and they do feel a little warm, but not as bad as my Timberland waterproof boots. The goretex does seem to do a good job of wicking sweat away and letting your foot breathe. When I first got these I second guessed where all the money went, but after wearing them for a while, it is really remarkable how comfortable they are for the protection they provide and it's money well spent. Oh, and they do squeak.

It will maintain a battery, but It will not charge a discharged battery. There is very fine text in the manual that says it won't charge a battery that shows less than 8 Volts. There are plenty of cheaper chargers out there that will. Don't buy this one.
Icon 1000 Elsinore Glory Boots The Elsinores five-strap, alloy-buckle chassis, stamped metal heel plate, and internal steel shank combine for a serious dose of moto-x homage. The traditional Goodyear welt construction mates the ICON street-specific sole to the magnificent leather upper. A medial entry zipper, allocated from Paratrooper jump boots, is the only luxury the Icon One Thousand Elsinore will allow itself. A modern relic from an era when men were iron and tanks were steel.
