Man, I missed out. I have a 13 also but I need a B width. No, not a missprint. Long-n-skinny feet. That's why I like the kind that zip up or buckle to get tight.

cfell Maybe we need to do some more "draggin' " as Joe puts it so we can fit into them narrow sizes...

SIDI Boots

I love my SIDI boots and would buy them again. Going on 5 years now and you can walk in them like a Nike.

cfell Joe, now that's just plain funny! Now you know why I'm in Texas.. I'm one of the few Cajuns who had big enough feet to walk the "floating" marsh and escape!! So, do those booties come in red metalflake?

Because they figure circus clowns don't need all that protection when they're riding their tricycles.

For me, yes. I've spent many a long day inside these SIDIs. And, they still smell brand-new inside.
Honest engine! (My wife even agrees. )

oldschool78 I like the look of the Sidi OnRoad boot. Anyone know how they fit a wide foot? Hard to judge with the Euro sizing.

BTW...Below is a link to a boot resole service.

Thanks for your thoughts. Ken,

Hey, that's good to know. I've got a pair of those and eventually gonna have to see the cobbler. Gonna ax him if he can put a coupla finger pull loops on 'em too. Either on each side, or just one in the back (ala Roper style). Be nice if they stood up about two feet so I don't have to bend over so far, butt I'm workin' on that leetle problem!!

messenger13 They are the SIDI 'Vertebra Te-Por' model. But I don't think they make this exact model anymore...but there are ones that are close. I am extremely impressed with the quality of these boots.

SIDI Boots - Review

I finally got tired of wearing out the toes of my Diadora boots (no replaceable toe slider ), so I bought a pair of SIDI boots last May. The old adage 'You get what you pay for' rings true again. These SIDI boots have been the best boots that I have ever owned to date. They are extremely comfortable, and waterproof. And they keep my feet warm in colder temps, but also let them breathe in hotter temps.

Last week, I ordered replacement (metal) toe sliders and a tube of SIDI 'Protective Waterproofing Cream' from MotoNation.com. These new toe sliders should outlast the stock plastic ones. And this contioning cream really made these boots look brand new again.

I highly recommend SIDI boots if you're ready to step up your riding footwear to the next level.
