Sidi Boots

Maybe some of you racers out there can help me...
I want Sidi B-2's. here is my problem... I wear a womens size 7.5 boot, and in mens Alpine Stars I wear 6.5 so is there anyone out there with this size foot who wears Sidi boots and if so what size would they be?

I was told there was a dealer who carries a larger variety of Sidi's than Motorcycles Unlimited but I cannot remember where it is. I want to try them on or similar boots like the Vertigo's, I just am not sure where to go.

Ex Imports carries Sidi, as well as the Triumph dealer @ 45 and College. Stay with the Sidi's. Patrick got a friend of mine hers, and she loved them.

Try them on and let Patrick take care of you.

I was quite impressed when you explained what happened. I like the Vertigo's but I think the B-2's will provide more protection for the back of my heel. I have had surgery on one ankle and want the best support possible.

I found a site that has a conversion chart, it says 39, which I would like to try on. Then I get all excited over the Corsa's and they don't go that small on the site I found them. eh, I suppose they can be ordered though right?

If you are going to be doing any walking after a ride i would suggest getting the vertigos the offer a molded and replacable heel cup protector and are more comfortable for cruising and round town riding imo

The Sidi Vertigo Corsa's show on this website to be available in a 39. I crashed @ MSRH wearing a pair of these @ around 130 mph, and tumbled violetly (from my vantage point) - feet and ankles were un-injured - I would not wear anything else - period.
