The Sidi Vertigo was only one of my options when it came time to select a new riding boot. I considered a wide range back then, but I kept returning to the Vertigo. It was fairly new at the time, but had many fans already - many sizes were sold out at purchase time (I was lucky with my big feet this time). One thing which most noted was that Sidi makes the same boots for the consumer market as they do for the professional racers they sponsor, so all of the technology on the track makes it to the street. Since my plans called for track days as well, I made the buy. Now that I have had them for some time, I can say a few things about them: they fit well and are extremely comfortable on the bike, there is even a decent feel for the controls through the Lorica, they are incredibly adjustable for boots, and they are very durable. My Vertigo pair has been through the Pacific Northwest's legendarily wet and dirty winters and will still clean up to look almost brand new. The only complaint I have is their off-bike comfort. They do feel like stormtrooper boots and caused me some blisters early in my ownership. I replaced the insole, which virtually eliminated the blister issues, but did not alleviate the stiff feeling when walking around for a while. Even with this one demerit, I highly recommend the Sidi Vertigos for any sport-minded rider, especially those who spend plenty of time on a track!

The boots are just as advertised. The fit is a little snug, but will probably loosen up over time. The construction and features are excellent.
I have only ridden in these boots about three times and I can already tell, that these are great boots. They fit true to size, they are light weight and are comfortable. The sole is sturdy but still provides feel and feed back on the pegs. The vents work good, calf adjustment is a very cool feature. The protection level is unreal. (I call them my super boots.) The only negative thing I can say is that could use a little more arch support. That is easily remedied with Dr. Scholls. Ordering and shipping was painless. Repeat customer for sure.
I've had these boots since the first year they came out and they are the most comfortable boots I've had. They fit great from the start and required no break-in. Once they're on, you forget they're even there. They are very light, yet provide great protection. I have no issues walking around in them once I get to my destination. The calf adjustment feature is one of the best features as it allows you to get the perfect fit whether you're just wearing the boot under riding pants or tucking a suit into them. I would highly recommend this boot to anyone looking for a great looking boot that offers the highest levels of protection.
