Does anyone else who has Sidi Vert's have squeaks in their boots? Mine are squeaking like crazy at the moment when i walk in them. Any way to reduce this?

little bit of silcone lube. (Tri-flow, super lube or even that little bottle of stuff that comes with helmets.(

I'd be more surprised if your Sidis didn't start squeaking. Very, very common problem.

Sidi Squeaks

My Sidi's squeak also! Thanks for bringing up the subject.
Luckily those boots are NOT made for walking, so you don't have to listen to them too long. Most comfortable boots I have had for riding though. Alpinestars a close second... :rockon

Hardcore riders attach a Scottoiler to their belt and use that to keep their Vertigos from squeaking.
Hahaha..thats pretty funny.

I just don't bother.

Its not like squeaking boots would attract more attention than walking around with a helmet and leathers.

+1 for silicone lubricant, don't use WD-40, its water-based and won't last. It could also dry out the leather on the boots.

Thats right, stick to Synthetic lubricant. None of that dino oil stuff. I prefer Repsol 5W30 myself.

FYI: Sidis boots are not made out of leather..not since the 70s. Lorica it is.

Yes, I know the perforated liner is made out of leather.

My vertigos have squeeked for years. Silicone spray works for me, but I don't bother since I don't do any walking with them.

chain lube (I've used the Maxima foaming kind) works brilliantly and lasts a huge amount of time.

Give 'em a good rubdown with some sex gel. Try "Oh My" or "Astrolube". You will never think of your boots the same way again.

And the number is 40 because that's how many tries it took to get the formula right.

Sidi's are not ninja-approved. I tried to sneak into work late one day while wearing my Sidi B2s. Impossible to do. :D
