Sidi Hydro GTX boots

Postby Wirral_Paul » Tue Dec 10, 2013 20:52 pm

Hi all

Has anyone bought these winter shoes recently at all? I'm looking to see what discounts are out there as the 2014 version has just come out but surprisingly I can get the 2014 version CHEAPER than the 2013 version!! Other than cosmetic differences - have they downgraded them somehow? I would have thought that everywhere would be trying to sell on the 2013 stock now!!

Is anywhere cheaper than Wynstanleys for these @ £180 for the 2014 version (£200 for the 2013!!)

Cheers

I've had a pair of Diablos (MTB version) for about 5 years and they're still going strong and perfectly watertight (rode through an ankle-deep ford the other day) Design hasn't changed much in the time, testament to not needing fixing. Usual Sidi quality, only weakness like most winter boots is the neoprene collar which can gape - overshoes still needed if really wet/snowy.
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

Hi Monty

Thanks. Yeah i do love the quality. I have a pair of Ergo 3's and they are amazingly comfy, so i fancy some Sidi's again more suited to the crappy weather. I've spent all day trying to find any differences other than tiny cosmetic differences and cant - i may as well go buy the 2014 version unless i can talk Winstanleys into a big discount on the '13 version. I'll head over to them on Saturday i think.
