Sidi Streetburners

So I just bought a pair of these off amazon. I was looking at the Blades first, but decided on the streetburners bc they look like a better fit and offer better protection. Does anyone have these and would like to comment? Or on sidi in general? This is my first Sidi purchase.

love my sidi's, thought about the streetburners but I figured it was less protection. Now I'm reconsidering because my kneepads go almost to where the top of the streetburners would go but they overlap my Vertigos

Yes, but I'm wearing a mid boot right now (hiking shoe ) and wanted to keep that size and little bit of leg freedom. tbh, the full boot does not look comfortable to walk around in.

it's not, but it's extremely comfortable when you're riding and it's far more comfortable than it looks

I have the Sidi Gore Tex full boot. They are stiff but they break in nicely. Though mine cost around $350 I just feel better with the more protection. They look just like the ones you bought but they are the full boot.

Sidi makes great stuff but the afterburner boot doesn't offer a lot of protection for the price. Imo it's more of a "beefed up" half boot, which won't do anything for your ankle or shin.

Yup yup!! I bought a Shift halfboot. Comfortable like crazy but no protection. I spent $100 and wish i hadn't so then i got the Sidi. I wear my Shift boots when i ride my dual sport around town.

They have more ankle protection then the sidi fusion full boot. Fusions are only $200 though. Fusion will fold over at the ankle joint pretty easily where the afterburner still has some rigidity. But no shin cover.
