    A-Stars
    Vented SMX-6 V2 and 1 10 yr old pair of SMX-2 for the warmer season
    12 Yr old SIDI On roads and TCX infinity (I think) shorties  for not so warm season

    I tried a pair of SIDI vertigo2 that were on sale,, figured hell why not,, nice looking boot
    but ended up returning them, seems no QC checks were made when they boxed up this pair?
    I spoke to one of the "geeks" in re:, I was told I was not the only one with similar observations and complaint
    First impressions SIDI.... Sorry, sticking with A-stars

    Daytona roadstar gtx.
    I'm on my second pair of Daytona boots, the last pair kept my feet dry for over 15 years.
    They're not cheap though.

    Older thread but Daytona Road Star GTX are the most comfortable boot I've ever worn and has the largest toe box of any I've tried. They will build custom from your measurements, through a dealer, so next pair I need I'm going to take the time to do that.

    So far, I think you can almost guarantee 10 to 15+ years of use out of a pair of Daytonas (fully waterproof).

    Ultimately - that is good value.
