Sidi Onroads for several years and still use them a lot for touring. I got a pair of Sidi Adventure Gore tex a few years ago when I started riding more dirt . They provide better blunt force protection for the shins and better protection for the ankles.
- both are waterproof and have remained so for years.
- both can be resoled
- both are very comfortable off the bike. In fact, I find the Adventure boot nearly as comfortable as the Onroads and find that I am wearing them more and more even when touring.
Downside of both is that the cost a bit more initially but over time, they may turn out to be less expensive because they last so long and can be resoled.
Both are a bit hot when temperatures are 80+ but I rarely ride in those temperatures so it is not an issue for me.
As stated earlier, fit is very important and may well be one of the first considerations you should have (after protection of course).
