I don't know anything about those other shoes - I am a fan of Sidi Dominators. Have worn them for years and probably won't ever wear anything else.
1) they are the most comfortable of shoes, at least on my feet. Yes I have bought others; even some more expensive. I always go back to the Sidis.
2) they are easy to care for. I live in an area where part of the year there's mud and running water. The other part is sand and lose dirt. Even though the Sidi's are leather, I clean them by soaking in warm water which a hint of bleach and dry outside. They turn out fresh just like new. My current Dominators are about 4 years old and get alot of wear. They look battered but are still in good shape. Eventually the platforms wear out and I get new shoes.
I have a friend who is now making a big deal of wearing his Sidi until they fall apart. He's almost there. I think he has been wearing the shoes for almost 10 years.
Those other shoes may be just as good or better; but I definitely give thumbs up for the Dominator.
