All Sidi boots with the designation "air" have perforated leather to allow additional airflow to air cool the user's feet. Their intended use is in hotter climates

http://www.motonation.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=417&idcategory=4 click the image and you can see the perforations. If you are in a cool/cold climate, ya may want to consider the sidi that are NOT the "air" version. I have multiple pair of sidi boots, love em. But on a COLD day, ya really notice the air movin through. Same with perforated leathers. Living in Florida, they all have to be perforated, but on those 50F morning sessions? i have to put an under suite "wind stopper" on under the leathers to not freeze. I don't wear my air boots on cold days, but they are nice. Keep in mind RAIN!! your socks will get soaked pretty fast if you are riding with these boots in the rain. been there.
