New gear can come and go, but it’s that old leather jacket that’s perfectly broken in, that helmet that you rode out to Sturgis in with your favorite stickers, or the pair of old yellow work gloves that fit just right that really stands the test of time. After a couple days in these boots, I knew they would soon be my ‘Old Faithfuls’.
I just got this boot and have been immediately impressed by both the quality of construction and comfort. The Velco closure makes for an easy on/off and the quick latch buckle adds another level of convenience. Most of Sidi’s boots are full-fledged race shoes with slide plates and all the technical trimming, so it’s no surprise that the Canyon Gore-Tex is also equipped with as many safety features as they could hide beneath the casual black leather exterior.
While the Gore-Tex liner will keep your feet warm and dry, the Canyon also manages to keep your feet cool enough while riding on hot days: a trait not easily achieved with tall padded riding boots. The boot has a padded shin, ankle pads, shift pad on the toe, reflective inserts on the back and toe, as well as removable sole for customizing the fit.
If you have ever had the chance to own a pair of Sidi Boots you know the quality that they are constructed with. Though $350 may not be the cheapest boots on the rack, they might just be the best bang for your buck in the long term, as the Goodyear welt is resoleable and the upper is made of a high quality full grain leather.
Great support and safety features on the bike, comfortable enough to walk around in all day, and they have a great casual look that’s easy to rock wherever you’re going. We love the Sidi Canyon Gore-Tex boots and can’t wait to spend some more time riding in them.
