This is a really cool boot. You're getting many of the features of a pro
level race boot but in a light weight, high top package that can be worn under
the cuff of jeans or riding pants.
Probably the most notable of all the features is the techno II System. This
system provides not only offers a perfect fit but also added safety. Many toe
injuries are caused by the foot getting smooshed into the toe of the boot in a
crash. This closure system prevents that. The smooshing that is. Not the
crashing. To operate the system, you simply attach the lever release mechanism.
Flip up the lever and rotate the dial clockwise to get the desired fit. To
release the buckle, lift up on the release lever. Loosen the system back up
using the button on the side of the dial. To make sure these boots don't get
looser while you are riding, make sure you get the wires into their little
tracks when you are tightening them up. The Velcro strap on the instep fastens
to provide ankle support. One feature I really like about this strap that I'm
not even sure was intentional but I think is great is that this strap is
reversible. You can fasten the strap behind the boot when you're off the bike
for a little extra room without looking like a kid with their shoes untied. The
materials used in Sidi
boots are also quite revolutionary. The Streetburner is constructed using a
combination of their proprietary material called Technomicro, and a ballistic
nylon. Technomicro is a manmade leather that is actually stronger than hide
because it has little to no imperfections.
These motorcycle boots have
numerous additional safety features as well. They have reinforced toe boxes, toe
sliders, reinforced, shock absorbing heel cups, and a rigid ankle support system
with built in sliders and an adjustable vent system. And, a simple Philips head
screw driver is all you need to remove and replace nearly all of these items.
The interior of the boot features a nylon inner sole with removable arch support
and and an air Teflon liner for moisture control and airflow.
