I just recieved a pair of Sidi's new Sport Rain rining boots which are basically just like my 4 year old pair of Sidi's Sport Tepor boots that I have except that they now have a zipper and velcro enclosure as oppossed to the velcro straps that my old Sidi's have which were sort of a pain to use.

I really like this boot as this boot as its lightweight and its very comfortable to walk around in once you get to where your going and its ended up being a good year round riding boot for me and not to hot to wear during the summer.

I've put a lot of miles and riding on my old pair in the last 4 years and they have held up very well and still have a little life left in them but they were starting to look a little tired.

They retail for $200 but I ended up getting them for $180 shipped from MotoNeko.com due to a mistake on their website which they honored. :rider:

i dont usually walk around with them, but they are not that uncomfortable. similar to the sidi, they are zipper and velcro, but that is on the inside. they were a little over the top, in style for me, and the sidi looks more like a normal shoe, with the same features. i like wearing them, and riding with them i forget i have them on, but the safety features of the heel, ankle, toe and rotation protection make me feel better when i wear them.

some have criticized the screws that hold the toe sliders, as being hard to unscrew once they are ground up, but i havnt touched them yet, besides walking around and kicking stuff.

I am a big fan of the Alpinestars Gortex Effex boots, I am currently on my 3rd pair in 7 years. The last pair survived two big crashs. They are waterproof, very warm and about $200 bucks.
