Off-road Protection in a Boot that’s Comfortable Anywhere
At least that’s what Sidi is going for with the Adventure 2 Gore-Tex Mid Boots. The company wanted to make a boot that’s suitable for off-road and adventure riders who spend a little time off the bike, too. These boots are designed to be comfy both when riding and when walking around.
They feature a Gore-Tex waterproof membrane. That membrane is supposed to also be breathable, which means your feet will stay cooler in warm weather and not sweat.
The boots also feature a bonded non-slip lug type sole, replaceable micro-adjustable camp lock buckle system with memory retention straps, Sidi’s full-grain microfiber material for the upper construction with Cordura, a nylon inner sole with a removable arch support pad, and Teflon mesh liner in the upper area that will not retain water or sweat and should dry quickly.
The boots also obviously feature heel reinforcement and toe reinforcements. So that your heel and toe are well protected.
Overall, these boots look like they could be a really good pair for adventure touring riders, especially if you like to really go off the beaten path. One of our contributors will be testing these boots at some point in 2020.
