I'm a long time Sidi user but the last two years I tried a different brand, and now just purchased Sidi's again. It amazing how light and compact they feel which helps on the bike with braking and shifting! I really like these boots.

The boot is amazing but it definitely runs small. I am a 9.5 in most of my shoes, and have been able to fit in narrow shoes before, as my feet are pretty narrow. In boots I can even fit into 8.5 or 9. With the sidi's I ordered 9.5's, and they were way too tight width and length. I returned them and Motosport restocked and sent 10's immediately. The 10's fit much better, they were still tight, but it is VERY snug and secure. If they had 10.5's available that would probably fit me better, as I'd be able to wear thicker socks, but I am confident the 10's will wear in perfectly. As it is, my feet feel like they're being snuggled by a grizzly bear. Safe, secure, and they're not going anywhere.
The best boot I have ever ridden. They are really comfortable and supportive. I have had them for a couple of weeks now and they still look brand new. The material touching the bike has very good grip. The sole of the boots still look brand new with no scratches. There are a few scratches on the upper part of the boot but that is very normal for boots.
The fit its great right from the begining, you don't need to break them in. It's like wearing tennis shoes. I bought the same size I wear my running shoes. I ride off road and I will recomend you buy the enduro soles.
I purchased these boots in February and so far have around 30 hours worth of riding on them. First impression was great. Comfortable, lightweight, and offer great protection.
Already, however, the inside of the right boot above the sole is split open right down to the inner liner. This is an area where the rear brake lever contacts pretty often. I'm now looking into repair options after only owning these a few months. My entry level Alpinestars Tech 3s lasted years under the same conditions.
I was excited to give these a try but I have to say, I'm extremely disappointed and wouldn't recommend them to a friend.
Awesome boots!! Pricey but worth the cost.
I chose these boots for the adjustable calf area because I wear knee braces. They are set at the largest size and are still a little tight around the braces but it is not a huge issue. They still fit better than all of the non adjustable boots I've tried. A great boot from a great company.
Its the best boot overall!!
I bought the original crossfire boots seven years ago. I just changed the soles for the second time. Don't mind spending extra money when the vendor sales replacement parts for several years. Ive broken 1 strap and lost a hinge clip in a bad head on crash with another bike.Had several hard crashes over the years and these boots have held up amazingly well.My care for these boots consist of putting them in the garage after riding,let the mud dry.Take them out next time bang them together a couple of time to knock mud off and wear them. They are still waterproof.I am just a weekend trail rider.Gone through several pairs of cheaper boots in the past 30 years. Will definitely buy another pair of crossfires when these wear out.You wont be disappointed.
I've had these now more than a year and they are worth every $ they cost. Good protection, comfortable and easy to walk in when you need to. Had a long run of cheap boots thinking it's the best option but they typically lasted one riding season and fell apart. Realized that investing in a good pair of quality boots pays off.
One word of caution, the European sizing is more accurate, I sent the first pair back as they were too tight.
Very glad I stuck with them !
I am on the third set of boot soles... I like the enduro soles (34$). I use fastway evolution airs with spikes for mud and wet conditions and positive grip... I rip through soles in a year. Changing out the soles has saved hundreds of dollars over the last 2.5 years I've had these for racing.
Not even sure they have a break in period... They were supple from the showroom floor. All the parts except the leather upper is replaceable... shin panels, front guards.. straps... all of it...
Lastly get a good leather conditioner... I didn't treat it right and its now starting to scale... however... I race in Arizona in the winter... and in Colorado in the summer... all dry air areas... with splashes of water. I have to say even with poor care these have lasted for a very long time.
So I called Motivation who does the warranty work for SIDI, and long story short, they had me send the boots in and ended up sending me a new pair. It took over a month to work through the process so I was glad I still had a pair of back up boots. It appears that it is a known issue with the part that broke. Nice to see a company that still stands behind their product.
I will say that I found the toe box on these to have less feel than my old Alpinestar Tech 8. But this could just be a break in process???
Took these boots out for a weekend of riding without breaking them in. They felt broken in the minute I put them on. Buckles work very well. I have zero complaints about these boots.
Love these boots!!
I dont use anything else. Pay the price get good boots. They also sell replacement parts.
Most comfortable boots I've worn, even without half sizes. I have screws in my ankle that hurt every ride with my old $100 boots. No pain at all with Sidi's, hands down the most comfortable mx boot I've ever worn. Too soon to opine on durability.
Re sizing, I wear a 44.5 in Sidi cycling shoes (10.5 in typical US footwear, 10's mx boots back in the day). Guessed at 44's, and they were too small. 45's work, but do have just a bit of excess room.
Most comfortable boots I've ever owned!!! Nice strong Toe box! If i was wearing softer boots i would have broke my Foot!
True to size,good guality boot.
I was a little hesitant to wear these new boots for the first time in a hare scramble, but I did it anyway. I was pleasantly surprised when I threw my leg over the bike rushing to get to the starting line. They immediately felt better than my well broke-in Tech 7's and I was glad I had decided to put them into service. With more flex in the ankle shifting and braking was easier and provided more feel and better control. No pressure points were noticed. They limbered up a little over the course of the day and allowed me to go a couple clicks tighter on the buckles. If I can wear these out, I'll definitely purchase another pair.
I was a bit nervous spending almost six bills for a set of boots, but after riding with them it was well worth the money. My feet are two different sizes, an 11 and a 11-1/2, so I go with the size 11 on any shoe/boot purchase so I do not have a loose shoe. I ordered the CF2's the same way and they fit great. Not loose or tight. The Motosport return policy made this a little less worrisome. I wore them around the house off and on for a couple days and they felt like they broke in just walking indoors. I have taken one ride with them and they are really comfy to ride in. I trail ride in some nasty stuff and the boots protected me great. The hinge system makes a difference shifting and braking, and they are waterproof. The SRS sole stuck to my footpegs well, and did not wear excessively on the sharp teeth. My feet were a little hot after the ride, but the boots still felt comfortable no hot spots or rubbing. They also cleaned up well from all the mud and crud and still looked good. The only complaints I have is I wish the SRS system had a metal toe cap for durability. The plastic end cap seems sturdy, but I feel a metal replaceable cap would be a benefit. I also feel a replaceable panel on the left toe/shift area would increase durability to match the rest of the replaceable panels and buckle points. All in all I give them 5 stars. With basic good quality boots almost at 3 bills now spending more for something this comfortable and durable seems to be an easy choice.
