CBA at the moment to photograph mine and put them on Webshots (spent the day taking Mrs D to hospital and then visiting again this evening - hospital is 65 miles away Crying or Very sad), but here are a couple of pics and reviews from the webternet:

Good review: http://www.motorbikestoday.com/features/Articles/sidi_rain.htm
Bad review: http://kapitalmoto.co.uk/node/125

The zips are fairly lightweight, to be honest, nothing like as sturdy as the ones on my old boots, but like most things, if you use them properly they should last the course. He's surprised that he's worn the toes out on track days. Hello? Didn't you notice the lack of toe-sliders first?

They feel a bit weird to walk in, as the heel is narrow and set quite far forward, but they are comfy enough and look and feel 100% better than the old ones.

She'll be out tomorrow (another trip to Swansea and back - but she's worth it). Big operation reconstructing a damaged shoulder, which means (according to the surgeon) lots of pain and no driving or anything involving arm movement for anything from 2 to 8 weeks[1]. So that's me as chief cook and bottle-washer for the next couple of months. If I suddenly stop posting, it's because we have all died of food poisoning.

I'll pass on your good wishes - thanks, very nice of you.

[1] Yeah, yeah. Thought it as I wrote it. Cool
