Sidi Jasmine Rain Boots | Review

Women’s Motorcycle Boot

Feeling shiftless, ladies? You might want to check out a pair of Sidi’s Jasmine Rain women’s motorcycle boots. They are lightweight, slipper-comfortable (Italian-made), and don’t make a big commotion when you’re walking through the office (I commute) or a restaurant.

A long, single side-zipper opens the Jasmine Rain wide, allowing a fast slip on and off, while a Velcro tab secures the top of the zipper. Elastic at the calf keeps the fit snug, and a quilted flexible panel (with reflective edging for night safety) arches across the Achilles for added comfort. There’s an orthotics-like removable inner arch support that makes the boots more comfortable for me, but could be pulled out to make the boots a bit roomier.

Toe and heel protection is substantial, but ankle support and protection is limited. The Jasmine Rain boots are water resistant (there’s a full-length inner gaiter and breathable membrane), and have non-slip soles with short heels. These are definitely touring boots, and serious sport riders will be drawn to the Sidi Vertigo Lei women’s boots.

Because the left boot does not have toe-shifter protection, the Jasmines accessorize especially well with scooters and auto-shift bikes, such as the Aprilia Mana or Honda VFR1200F.

And, of course, the Jasmine is a perfect passenger boot choice. Foot-friendly enough for all-day shopping–I mean riding–the Sidi Jasmine Rain boots come in discreet basic black. Styling is Italian–need I say more?
