Pretty sure it's a thinner sole and a little different shape.

I didn't know they sold the whole SRS sole (not just the replacement panels). When I replaced my SRS soles with a new sole I could only find the standard sole. Good to know Susan has access to this unicorn part

Thx Susan!

I've looked at Sidi boots for years - I think I even tried on a pair way back when and if I remember they felt narrow - but had never pulled the trigger. Thinking about this again now though...

Here's a question Susan. I LOVE that the Vortice has a replacement part for the ball of the foot where I continually dig into the soles of my A* with the pegs. However, looking at the Mag1 it looks like they've gone to a full sole w/o that replacement capability. Is there a way to use the Vortice replacement sole on the Mag1 boot? So, after the first complete sole replacement you only need to replace the ball of foot section going forward?
Mike,
John Allen had a pair of Vortices and maybe he would let us borrow them to compare against the Mag 's we have in stock.  Then we should be able to tell if we can swap soles.  Meanwhile, I can call the rep and ask the question.

What do you think?

Susan did no know you were SIDI repair specialists what the heck am I doing? Reading about cure rates and applications etc.



I had TrackSide Gear go though my boots this past winter.  it involved a serious cleaning (i used them for some off roading and they got VERY dirty)  as well as a sole replacement. 

The sole ended up being on backorder so it made things take a little longer, but once Susan got the parts the rest of the process felt like it went really quick.  So far  after 7 track days and some street miles the boots are intact and I see no reason for them to start falling apart at this time.  I highly recommend letting Susan take care of a resoling, just have her confirm she can get the parts first if you need to use them in the mean time.

Well because I ordered glue and I forgot about it and said glue showed up the other day I took a crack at it.


Pretty nice when you don’t have to toss a $425 set of boots.
Now the big question? Peel the undamaged boot sole off and replace it or walk around with one leg 3/4 of an inch shorter?

Or anyone have a left boot needing a new sole and the right is ok?


Reminds me of a story of two civil war soldiers that one lost his left leg the other his right.
Every year they would meet at the same shoe store and buy a pair of shoes together.

Because you certainly
Know how big a PITA it is to pull a sole off that is not even a little loose. Hahaha
