The SIDI Adventure 2 Gore-Tex Boots boast upgrades and refinements in strategic areas that improve the design without upsetting the recipe that has made the original Sidi Adventure the standard bearer of Adventure boots.
The most salient upgrade is a full-height 14-inch Gore-Tex gaiter, three inches higher up the boot for increased waterproofing—especially useful for water crossings.
With additional stretch at the back of the calf, there is now more space and flexibility (AKA, comfort) in the shaft to accommodate a wider range of riders' calf sizes. SIDI has also increased the area of split-grain leather grip paneling on the inside of the calf as well as the instep for better feel when standing on the pegs off road.
The ankle flex system, tongue-in-groove Achilles protector and other TPUs on the SIDI Adventure 2 have been refined for a slimmer overall profile with better protection, eliminating any clumsiness or bulky feel interfacing with the bike.
Strategically-placed flex zones allow for better mobility right out of the box, resulting in a much shorter break-in period, better walkability, dexterity and comfort.
Wherever you adventures take you, the SIDI Adventure 2 Gore-Tex Boots are one of the best all-weather, on/off-road ADV boots money can buy. Because nobody plans to drop a 700-pound Adventure bike on their ankle, but when you do, you'll wish you were wearing these boots.
Do they still squeak like the first version? Yeah, a little. But for those looking for the best ADV option on the market, with Made in Italia bonafides, we’ll toss in some free ear plugs to help deal.
