Sidi Streetburner Boots - May 14, 2008, 01:46 PM

Looking for some decent boots to ride in, but I have a problem with Stoopid Huge Calves that wont fit in Full Length boots like the more serious racing boots.

I need something that give good protection to as much as I can protect...so with that said. What do yall think of these?

Granted the $250 price tag is not an easy pill to swollow.



This demonstrates how stupid the average American is. Every ninety minutes someone in this country is hit by a train. A train, Okay? Trains are on tracks; they can't come and get you. They can't surprise you when you step off a curb. You have to go to them! Got that?

I would say they'd be better than a pair of Timbs or similar boot. Yeah, at $250 they are at least twice as much as most others but you're basically getting a low-top Vertigo Corsa. You get the ratchet thingy to keep your foot in place, air vent, and the toe and heal plastic are replaceable, etc. Above and beyond practically any other "street" boot. Not a bad deal at all, imo.

Very neat looking but I'd want them to go up like the normal boots do. The more protection I have, the better.

Good find tho Kirs!

I don't see how these will keep you from twisting yer ankles, tho...

For $250 might as well get racing boots.... btw motonekoparts.com have closeouts on Alpinestars SuperTech boots in certain sizes... $219 <--THAT'S A DEAL YOU CAN'T BEAT FOR NEW

You should check out the Sidi Vertigo's. I have big calves as well, and I just picked up a pair of vertigos and am very happy with them. The Vertigo's (and the corsa's) have an "adjustable calf system". It works similar to snowboard boots with boa laces.

She has teeny feet and beefy calves, the regular boots don't fit her.

She? I think you have me confused with someone a whole lot prettier than I am

But you are on the right path...I do have beefy calves (big feet too though).
I have Tried the Corsa's on,and even with the keen calf adjustment system they have...I still can't get it to close up for me. Shrug...But then again, I am not a racer (sigh) and dont ride all that agressive. Maybe these are over kill?

I had looked at the Joe Rocket Super Streets also...( $160) Maybe that is a better option?

Got a pair of Sidi Streetburners last month, great boot. Pretty sure we have a full size run at Battley & DCSBN members save 10%. Call the shop and ask for Paris.
