Sidi Adventure 2 rain boots
« on: August 02, 2018, 12:39:55 AM »
Does anyone use these boots? How do you like 'em?
The prices are all over the board on line. Anywhere from $311 to $495 US.
I'm really drawn to the brown/black design choice...very sharp.
I've worn Sidi boots for years. Usually great quality ad the fit is perfect for me.

I recently replaced my Sidi touring boots with a pair of Forma Adventure Low boots. Also Italian made. Better price. Love them. Well made and comfortable.

I've got the original Sidi Adventure and it has been fantastic. Waterproof (essential for UK riding), comfortable in hot conditions (Morocco) and hard wearing. No problems with the controls and good for walking in as well (although a little squeak). A friend has got the Adventure 2 and swears by them for his commute in Manchester because he always arrives with dry feet!

If you can find a pair at a price you like, I don't think you'll go wrong (around 300 GBP retail in the UK).

To be fair though, my go-to boots at the moment are much lighter (paired with motorcycle jeans) - a pair of DXR Hinckley (apt name for the Triumph rider).

Cheers

I procrastinated and now cannot find the Sidi Deep Rain in my size, they are on close out.
Searching I discovered the Adventure boots. May be overkill as far as weather protection goes, I’m in the desert, but plenty of armor. I like plenty of protection.

BTW, the Forma boots come in standard height also.

Hi there I have the Adventure 2 boots and they are comfy and well made but they do have the Sidi squeak. Just back from 2 weeks touring in Europe in +30 deg heat and torrential rain no issues at all.

I use the Sidi Courier/Trials Boots. Super comfy and warm and despite not being advertised as waterproof, my feet have stayed totally dry even after riding through downpours.
