      I ordered mine 2 days ago, about a day later I got an email saying they had been dispatched to the shipper. Will let you know when they arrive.
      Nearly all colours and styles are available, just some of the sizes are missing for the older models. Keep checking links, if you can't find what you want for $328, then I really think you are being precious seeing as you see them listed for WELL OVER $600 in Oz bike shops.
      Edit: mind you, for the money I suppose you deserve the colour you want!

        Had my 2's a few years now and still good, no issues with the caps at all. Lost one of the ankle hinge plates but replacement parts sorted quickly on fleabay.

          Mine are 1s and the screws started backing out after the first ride. Had to tighten them after every single ride and I would still loose them and even popped the entire toe cap off when it got caught on a log. Shoe goo has worked OK for the last year or so but it is a pain in the ass when your boots need more maintenance than your bike.

          Otherwise they have been great... but toe caps seem very 90's.

            Yep... great boots .. mine are 5 years old and have had no problems... except of course I got sick of replacing the toe caps so have done without them for the last 2 years. Replacement components seem easy enough to source.

            I reckon the boots still have another 4 or 5 years left in them. !psm

                  I've had regular reports from guys saying they are having similar problems with other Sidi boots. Unfortunately it seems the quality control problem may extend to Sidi's adventure boots too.

                  This guy has long been a fan of Sidi, these were his fifth pair but after 18 months of use both soles came off within a few days of each other. He was not happy with the customer service response which basically it wasn't Sidi's problem. He said there appeared to be very little glue applied to the soles....

                    Mihai probably sniffed most of it..... I’d say you’d need it to get through a shift in a Romanian shoe factory.

                        They are good boots, but negatives are the run in period is 20 plus rides and to walk in the feel bloody awkward.

                          I don't remember going through any break in period, but that was nearly 15 years ago

                            Sorry, mine are SG12's - maybe totally different?
