Visit our Sidi Sizing Information page for complete size conversion info (ladies can use the chart at the bottom of the page). Sidi boots typically fit very consistently from one model to the next and this boot is no exception. We feel the size chart represents the fit very well. Width is “normal”, which is C or D in US shoe sizes.
Our Two Cents
Sidi’s new Duna boots are new for 2019. This is a re-style of one of their classic short lace-up boots from years past… the Doha, which was a best seller for years.
The Duna comes in two versions… the Gore-Tex lined version sold on this product page and then there is a “standard” non-waterproof boot simply called the Duna boot. (take the link below to view the standard Duna boot).
The Duna boots are lightweight and easy to wear, and they’ll work great both on and off the bike. The boots have integrated impact protectors in each side of your ankle bones, which are behind the interior padding so they don’t bother your ankles. The toe and heel areas have internal stiffeners for protection and to keep the toe area from collapsing from pushing on a bike shifter. On the toe is an extra wrap of material for wear resistance to the shifter.
The upper material is part suede leather and part textile. The combination is lightweight and easy to wear. The sole is flexible enough to be comfortable off the bike but also has a stiffener in the shank area, which is important in a bike shoe so it doesn’t fold up if you put weight on your pegs.
The closure on the boots is a simple lacing setup with a Velcro-close strap at the ankle to keep the lace ends wrangled in so they don’t try to catch on your hardware. On the outside of the shoe are patches of bright reflective materials for nighttime visibility.
Choose the GoreTex boot if you think you’ll encounter wet weather and/or you want to ride in cooler weather. The standard boot will be the best for mild to hot weather and dry weather. The Gore-Tex costs about $50 extra which is in line with other products like this.
We’re glad to see the Duna boot back in the Sidi lineup because it’s always been a favorite simple street style. :: Paul, 01-21-19
Update: The Duana Special is now available. It is similar to the non-waterproof Duna but offers a mechanical closure rather than laces, which has the advantage of faster “put on and take off” and no loose laces to get tangled.
