Sidi Adventure boots are widely considered the gold standard for durable on and off-road touring footwear. Whether on the bike or walking, I never felt hindered by their formidable protection. An articulating ankle system makes walking a simple task while providing plenty of protection against hyperextension during a crash or road strike. A tough leather heat shield and thermoplastic shin guard offer peace of mind. The oil-resistant, hiking boot-style sole provides plenty of traction when needed. Even through daily rain showers, they never leaked and the two-buckle design made them simple to pull on and off.

 

 

 

Pros:  
-Comfortable, Cambria liner prevents chafing
-Breathable, moisture-wicking rainproof inner skin keeps feet dry
-Velcro over two-buckle design for easy on and off
-Articulating ankle hinge makes for unhindered walking
-Adequate protection without going overboard

Cons:
-Expensive
