Puma 1000V3s right now, but want to get the new Sidi Mag1 boot

The Pumas are a great boot, just not much support for them sadly, only way to get parts is from one guy in California, which he is really cool and sent me all the parts for free this last time, but it is just annoying as they are a great boot.

I've had vortice, st airs, supertech r, puma 1000 v1. All awesome boots but each have their drawbacks. Currently using a daytona evo sport and the fit & protection...and I have a wide feet too.

I have Forma Ice Flow boots and they are great. I use them daily for commuting 30 minutes one way to work. I've used them at the track with great feel and comfort. I've also taken them on 5-6 hour long rides with no issues. A great boot for the price and if you're military they will spring you a great deal!

SuperTech R. Unbelievably comfortable. I tried on all the Sidis and they pinched my toes. The toe box is very shallow and actually pinches across the top of the toes. I thought I wanted the Sidis because I have narrow feet but I couldn't wear them and then I tried on the the Supertechs and holy crap they are nice. Like slipping into a velvet glove. They're also very comfortable to walk in and easy to shift with. They don't have any weird parts on the outside to hangup on the bike and they are easy and fast to get in and out of.

Same here. I have spent all day at the street races in mine, then ridden home. Awesome boots.

God made shit. Ford made it move....

I really like what I see with the SIDI Vertigo's and the A* Supertech R. I've not seen any of them in person to try them on, but on paper they look great.

Picked up a pair of SIDI Vortice over the winter. Now that I have a few thousand miles in them, they have really broken in well and fit perfect. I wear them on long rides, commuting to work and the main reason I got them, track duty. They tend to squeak a bit when walking around but I can live with it. And at the price I got them for, by far one of the best purchases I have made to date!

KEEP CALM and RIDE ON

I've worn perforated SMX-Plus for 2 years, very comfortable and they flow a ton of air, perfect for my weather.
