I have the 2008 version, which are as nice as any Sidi boot I've owned. I'm sure the 2009 versions are the typical good Sidi product, too, and won't rain heels like older generation Alpine Stars. That said there's a lot of plastic on these things to melt when you get them to close to hot parts.

I really like the Corsa air, I might just wait and see if I can get a good deal on them instead of buying full price for 09 boots

I have a set of corsas that need some repairing on the heelcup that i'm willing to sell. I might just send it in to motonation to have them fixed then just sell them to get the vortices

I love the new vortice airs. They flow a lot of air and the replaceable soles are and the ankle protection is really nice.

The two things that I have noticed with them only wearing them a few times. They Are not as comfortable to walk around in as my last pair of Sidi Vertigos but they feel really good while on the bike. Second the boots are a little harder to put on because you have to get t he four hooks around the boot and adjusted so it takes a little while to put them on.

Been using them since X-Mass. Wonderful boots, just dont wear them for extensive amounts of time each day. They are well ventilated and sometimes too ventilated in cold weather. Strong, stylish, and work perfectly on every corner they are a must have for every track Guru.

Just dont get the white ones..
