It’s a foot bed (insole) covers the entire bottom footbed get rid of it and it’s like a totally different boot

Um comfortable isn’t the right word. I am thinking other than them being flawless. They are used cause they are like a favorite pair of sneakers after the toe has worn through.

Super supple. Fit feels good ordering my normal 45. The Max Air before removing the footbed you just knew. Shit I can’t wear these all day.

The entry will take some getting used to. Just need to open the boot all the way as the closure boas are fixed now. A little like getting into a ski boot.
The ankle protection is robust and is reminiscent of a few models into Sidi history yet a bit more refinement. Just cannot get over the feel of them not right or loose they sort of surround your foot and the fit .... fuck I don’t know how to describe it other that ski boots supper slim ski boot or perhaps better a snowboard boot as it does not have a hard shell.
Very walkable.
So far impressed.
Shipping right now. Let’s just say with the current situation in government. Anybodies guess when you clear customs. I have been lucky so far but I do have a bunch of stuff shipped from overseas I don’t expect to see for a bit. These and my YEC stuff made it.
Review to continue post a day on the track. Overall first blush I am happier day one than I have been with many other boots.

Next up Spidi!!!!!
