The Sidi Adventure Gore Boots are truly in a league of their own. Sidi critiqued these boots throughout every level of the design stages, which has resulted in an award worthy pair of Adventure boots. Every function and every detail is present for a reason.
The 'upper' of the boot is manufactured from two grades of leather. The areas that are externally visible are made from the highest grade, premium leather, which provides a smooth, attractive finish. In areas that provide attachment for buckles and protective external fixtures, split grain leather is used. This provides a rougher, durable area for these fixtures.
As the name suggests, the Sidi Adventure Gore Boots incorporate Gore-Tex® fabric, which is completely waterproof and fully breathable. The Gore-Tex® membrane is sandwiched between the external and internal linings, acting as an invisible part of the 'inner workings' of the Sidi Adventure Gore Boots. This extraordinary fabric is carefully protected by the creators. Gore-Tex® will not be found in inferior products, as each product undergoes careful inspection before the use of Gore-Tex® is granted. Naturally, Sidi products meet all of Gore-Tex's requirements.
The Sidi Adventure Gore Boots offer high level protection to the shin area through the inclusion of a tough, moulded, PU shin plate. This plate reinforces the entire area, ensuring that the shin area is well protected at all times.
The retention system on the Sidi Adventure Gore Boots consists of a large, strong Velcro closure, which allows a degree of individual fit depending on your calf size. A further two adjustable, extremely strong buckles can be adjusted by fine increments, to find the most ideal individual fit for your lower leg.
The Sidi Adventure Gore Boots have a high level internal gaiter, which ensures that the waterproof liner can function at full capacity, keeping your entire foot and lower leg dry.
The entire ankle area is encased by a moulded, hard plastic area which provides stability and increased rigidity to this vulnerable area.
An elasticated 'stretch panel' is located at the upper rear of the Sidi Adventure Gore Boots, which provides an extra touch of lower leg comfort when the boots are fastened. This area provides additional flexion when walking (although it has to be stressed, the Sidi Adventure Gore Boots are not walking boots!)
A clever 'flex' system has also been incorporated on the back of these boots, which allows a small amount of forward flexion. However, the boots do not readily allow backwards flexion, for increased stability and leg protection.
Tiny, highly reflective inserts on the back of the Adventure Gore boots allow a discreet but effective degree of visibility.
The heavy tread on the underside of the boots ensures the best foot peg grip and of course, general grip for poor weather use.
A strong nylon innersole again offers further support, by ensuring the foot cannot 'hyper-flex' in an undesirable direction. These innersoles can be removed if preferred.
