Sidi Vertigo 2 CE Mens Boots
Ready for the road or the racetrack, the Sidi Vertigo 2 uses the existing Sidi Vertigo boot as solid foundation, refining these Sidi boots for comfort, usability and performance. CE approved for your peace of mind, the Sidi Vertigo 2 boots features the same Tecno 3 closure system as Sidi’s premier race boots as well as safety features to keep you safe whenever you’re out on the road or track. This closure system is featured at the calf of the boot, allowing riders with any size calves to fit into the Sidi Vertigo 2 boots. This patented closure system allows the rider to tighten the boots at the calves in small increments, tightening the boots and tailoring the fit to the wearers ideals. The large zipped area lets you open the boot wide enough to accommodate your foot and zip comfortably in to place, offering optimum comfort whether on short commute or long distance travels. The nylon inner sole and rubber outer sole help provide superb grip, whilst still allowing you feel the bike via the pegs.
The upper of the Sidi Vertigo 2 boots is created in a Technomicro Microfibre materials which blends strength and comfort without compromising on weight, making it the perfect material for a motorcycle racing boot. Technomicro is a man-made microfibre composite material, with strands less than one-thousandth the thickness of silk. These tightly woven strands mirrors the strength and durability of traditional leather without the risk of imperfections that can occur with a natural material. This material is as lightweight as it is hardwearing and is capable of riding just as hard as you are. Technomicro is also water resistant, but by no means waterproof. The material is highly resistant to tearing and abrasion and is very easy to clean and maintain, ensuring your Vertigo 2 boots look newer for longer. The inner of the boot is lined with a Maglina Air Teflon for a smooth, comfortable interior of the boot. This material allows for superior breathability within the boot, allowing air into the boot via the ventilation area on the Sidi Vertigo and circulating this air thanks to hundreds of tiny air pockets within the material.
The anti-twist ankle support brace found on the Sidi Vertigo 2 boot allows for a free range of natural movement at the ankle whilst restricting unnatural movement, minimising the damage that can occur at the ankle whether on the track or on the road. This support brace allows for front to back movement, making gear changes easy and comfortable as well as offering comfort when walking around when off the bike too. The movement left to right is restricted, minimising the chances of breakages or ligament damage by unnatural movement. This system is made from a lightweight but reinforced fibreglass material and is easily replaced should any damage occur to the brace. Also replaceable is the toe sliders, which are easily replaced with a simple screw system. Replaceable sliders are available in full nylon or with ceramic or aluminium inserts. The moulded heel cup acts as a shock absorption point; the polyurethane shell of the heel cup holds a shock absorbing insert, which minimises that damage that can occur at this area.

There are few names in motorcycle wear as well known to the average rider as that of Italian boot maker Sidi. Founded in 1960 they started as a small workshop producing mountain sports footwear and registered their first patent in 1966 for the first rear entry ski boot.
Now after half a century, SIDI’s unique balance of tradition and innovation, style and comfort, make SIDI sporting footwear exceptional in the industry. An area it got the jump in quite some time ago.
In the late 60’s the founder of the company Dino Signori, (who also gave his name to it, maybe it’s surprising that it’s not the Disi company!) looked at expanding the range and came up with the idea of producing motorcycle boots.
A long time bike fan he knew that there is more to life than trekking and skiing, so in 1969 Dino jumped into the biking industry in a big way, and aligned Sidi boots with Italy's legendary motorcycle hero, Giacomo Agostini. He was the first rider who helped Sidi advance road race footwear, a tradition that continues to this day with no less than a third of the Moto GP regulars turning up to play in the company’s ever evolving products.
Also in 1969, Dino signed up a very outgoing Belgian, and then current world MX champion world champion Joel Robert to wear his MX boots. For those not familiar with this colourful Belgian (and 6 times world champion) he was famous for not taking training very seriously. To the extent that at one event he stubbed out his cigarette on the handlebars of a competitor whilst they were on the start line!
The early 70's were obviously a productive time for this small company as it was around then that they produced their first cycling shoes. This is another area that they have innovated in over many years and their products are the choice of people such as three-time World Cycling Champion Oscar Freire. Today there are almost as many cycling shoes in their range as there are motorcycle boots for the road.
In subsequent years, the Sidi design team have created some of the most ground breaking designs in motorcycle footwear. Things we take for granted today such as velcro fasteners, the use of Lorica, inner laces, sole replacement systems, toe sliders made from durable materials, techno bridge adjusters and adjustable calves all made some of their first appearances on models produced by this innovative designer of motorcycle boots.
There are also a huge range of ladies boots with most models having an equivalent that are designed for the female rider. Sizing in some models starts from a tiny 36 (that’s a two) so there’s bound to be something for the slight of foot.
Whatever you’re looking for in stylish and functional motorcycle footwear this half century old company will have a model to suit your needs.
