Description

A boxed pair of 2000s Sidi Vertigo Motorbike boots in black, white and silver. The upper is produced in Lorica (synthetic leather made of polyamide and polyurethane) and is lined with a Teflon mesh which acts as an invisible protection to provide maximum water and stain repellency, so the boots dry quicker and moulds do not form. On the outside, the boot is complete with an interchangeable nylon shinplate to protect the shin along with a nylon scuff pad on the toe to prevent wear and tear, both are replaceable. (It is possible to replace the shinplate and the toe slider, choose from a carbon or nylon front, and from a fully nylon scuff pad or with a ceramic one or an aluminium one). There is a small elastic panel to aid a smooth zipper operation over the ankle bone and the ankle area is padded inside. The leg section, in polyurethane, is fitted with the TecnoVR closing system patented by Sidi, to provide micro adjustment via a nylon thread passing through two lateral holes. The mechanism pulls on the thread to wrap the whole boot systematically and snugly around the calf. On the lower part of the boot is an air intake to help cool the foot, which can be opened and closed according to need. For greater foot safety the heel is fitted with a transparent polycarbonate shell with two anti impact shock absorbers. The transparent shell has 3mm of impact movement. The sole is in rubber and the innersole is in plastic with a removable arch support. All parts of the boot can be replaced.
