Sidi Adventure GTX Boots The Sidi Adventure GTX Boots are the gold standard for adventure riding boots. Sidi pulled all the best bits from their famous line of off-road boots and combined them with the legendary quality of their road boots to create the glorious hybrid cyborg that is the Adventure Gore-Tex Boots. A bit more comfortable than off-road boots, the Adventure GTX boots incorporate a hinged ankle support, a rigid and shock-resistant heel cup and composite inner sole with a top grain leather construction, replaceable cam-lock buckles and a sweat wicking cambrelle lining. The slim adjustable calf fits easily inside the pant leg of most riding pants, something that is not always possible with a traditional off-road boot, making them all the more attractive to ADV advocates and enduro enthusiasts. To top off the list of premium features these boots are 100 waterproof and breathable with a Gore-Tex lining that is Guaranteed to Keep You Dry. Features 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.
Yes, I recommend this product.
