All these beautiful new motorcycles hanging around my house all the time, combined with the need to look presentable when riding them, have infected me with another disease: I’ve developed a shoe fetish. When our friends at Motonation offered up a pair of new Sidis a while ago, I was smitten by the new Arcadia Tex on their website. In contrast to Sidi’s excellent high-tech racing boots (both road and offroad), these are a “Sidi Design Series” boot, intended for more casual riding and off-bike profiling. Fine by me; I’m not racing most of the time I’m riding. And when I’m stopping for a donut or a fish taco, it’s a known fact that 87% of women and 13% of men notice shoes first when scoping out a member of the opposite sex. It feels good to look good.
