Sidi SDS Mythos Gore-Tex Riding Shoes - Steveo WA
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: Sizing, Quality, Looks, Durability, Laces
Cons: Laces, Suede, Insole inserts
I have to say that I love these shoes. I have been a Sidi fan for many years and this is the only brand that I wear. The size out of the box is exactly what I expected it to be - spot on 43.When you put them on, they exude quality and finish. They feel solid, firm and ready to go. I wouldn't say that they need to be Broken in but they are stiff near your achilles tendon, but the padding there does a very good job of allowing more movement than you would expect.The lace system for me is good and bad. The speed loops make it faster to put on, but the laces are super long and hang out of the wide strap too easily. Also, because the laces are pretty stiff, the knot you tie easily loosens. I think that they should have gone with a better speed lace system.The suede is nice at first, but really attracts dirt and grime. It cleans easily, but really, who does that as often as you would like It does look nice and you can wear these with jeans and no one but moto riders would know. Very good looking shoes.The inserts suck. That said, inserts on just about any shoe or boot you buy suck especially if you have a higher than average arch. I always go and get gel inserts from the store anyway, so this isn't that big a deal. I just wish that manufacturers consider working on putting better inserts into their products in the future. Overall, these shoes are great. They feel good, they have just the right amount of ventilation during the summer and now that it's getting into the fall, they are still very comfortable and my feet haven't felt too cold. Would I buy these again Yes. Would I recommend them Yes. If you're looking for shorter bootsshoes, these are it.
