I recently bought a pair of Sidi Vertigo boots and when I wear them, I find it very difficult to get the in position to upshift. The boots just don't want to bend that far (which is a good thing). I'm not sure of the toes of the boots are too big or what, but it takes me a while to slip the toe in between the foot peg and the gear shift lever. I just wanted to know if anyone here has had that kind of problem and if there is anything I can do to fix it? Would installing adjustable rearsets do the trick? Thanks in advance!

you can adjust the shifter position. You wont have to adjust it all that much, its more about just getting used to shifting with the boots on!

I have Sidi Vertigo Corsa's size 13 and don't have a problem shifting at all. Even when I first got them. Just make sure you adjust the shifter lever to where it feels more comfortable.

I had the same problem, and felt like I was having to lift my foot off the peg to shift in my Docs, so I adjusted the shift rod all the way in and now it's perfect for both boots.

I had the same problem, but you'll get use to the boots after alittle while and you should be fine.

Yes, I have the same problem with upshifting.
I am adjusting the shift lever up to help it, but also just ordered the Valter Moto Riser Plates to move my stock rearsets back a bunch and up a little to increase the distance from the peg to the lever so there will be more room to work with. Didn't want to spend a ton on adjustable rearsets.
