These are the best pair of boots I've owned ( & I've owned quite a few). I feel very secure wearing them. They are as comfortable to walk in as they are to ride. The quality of the material and the manufacturing is outstanding (wouldn't expect anything less from SIDI). They are warm in mid 30* weather with plenty of space for thick or double up socks and keep your feet dry!!! You get what you pay for. My favorite part...I can wear them with my jeans without looking funky, unlike your traditional street bike boot. Way to go SIDI.
