Sidi Canyon Sizing - Help

Gonna splurge on a pair or Sidi's. it's long overdue. I just don't know what size to get...and no one locally has any I can try on. I have a pair of their cycling shoes but have no idea if that sizing carries over to their motorcycle boots. Anyone willing to lend their experience with Sidi sizing? Also, I live in NM where it gets bloody hot...But I want a boot that can handle all temps fairly well. Any recs besides the canyon? Thanks!!

I wear a size 10 in casual or sports shoes.

All my Sidi boots (four pair) fit me perfectly, and each is a size 44, which translates to a U.S. 10.

So, from my experience, their MC boot sizing is spot-on.

They run a tiny bit small

Go a half size bigger than your cross trainers or tennis shoes.

I'm a 9 3/4...meaning that depending on the maker of the shoe, I sometimes buy a 9 1/2 and sometimes a 10. I have the Sidi Canyon boots, size 43, and they are perfect for me.

Consider buying from a internet site that offers free exchange. I find that Sidi's run a half size big.

If you like Sidi's, the Clever Air might be a good choice. It's fully vented for the hot weather. And one of our guys down here has a pair of Sidi's bicycle shoes and MX boots and he wears the same size in both.

This! I'm a 10.5 in "normal" shoes and have the Canyons in US 11, fit perfect. Best boots I've owned, too....

I have had two pair of Sidi boots and find them to run pretty spot on size-wise. I wear a 13 in most "normal" shoes that i have and I usually go with a EU48 which translates to a 12.5 or 13 US depending on the brand. The Sidi ST Airs that i had before in size 48 fit but they were a little snug. The Adventure Gore-Tex boots I now have in size 48 are perfect thanks to the larger toe box.

i've got 3 pair of Sidi cycling shoes in different sizes; old Dominator 2s that work perfect without socks in 45.5, Dominator 5s in 46, and Carbon Titanium road shoes in a 46.5.

i found that i needed the Crossfire 2s to be larger than all of those and didn't fit right in anything smaller than a 47.

bottom line; if you don't have the chance to try them on in person, be prepared to return/exchange them, or order a couple of pair and return what doesn't work.

I wear a size 10.5-11 US shoe, depending upon the manufacturer. My old Alpinestars SMX-5s were size 45. I ordered the size 45 Sidi Adventures and they fit perfectly. In my very limited experience (of one pair of boots ), the Sidi fit very true to size for me.

I wear size 10 for the most part. Have a pair of size 43 Canyons. They fit a tad snug with heavy thickness socks I like to use. I would go to size 44 next time.

Awesome responses everyone. So the boots arrived today. Gotta give a shout out to Performance Motorcycles in Denver CO. They have great prices, and even better customer service. Use them. Unfortunately, the size 45 I got was just a bit too large (roomy in the toe, enough so that even with the buckle strapped all the way, they still floated). So, I have a size 44 on the way which should solve it. For all those looking to buy Sidi's in the future, I'm posting this reference chart that was on the side of the Sidi box. http://http://i1154.photobucket.com/albums/p531/nobrien22/fe01cffbb9828422b1c4f5d2a09e4ed9.jpg

I'll post an update next week once the size 44s arrive.

Small AND a bit narrow...I had a pair for one season. They were a little tight at first so I hoped with a lot of riding and walking they would stretch out a bit to fit well. They did not even after many miles both on the bike and hiking on foot so I sold them at the end of the riding season. The next year I went to the Aerostich Combat Lites (also made by SIDI), and they fit perfect right out of the box in the exact same size as the Canyons were and have been very happy with these boots. (43) The Combats are just enough wider in the forefoot to fit the so called "American foot" (I wear a 9 1/2 EE shoe) The Canyons are a very well made boot however and if they did fit me I would have stayed with them as the Gore-Tex liner is a nice feature and not available in the Combats. Best to try before you buy or at least be sure they are exchangeable/returnable as that's a lot of coin to shell out for boots that don't fit and hurt.
