Lorica is a lightweight, flexible, water repellent and breathable material made of the finest microfibers. It's amazingly durable and like leather, it improves with age.
For almost 50 years, Sidi has been hand making world-class shoes for
cyclists, from the most elite racers to weekend warriors. Their
attention to detail, quality and comfort is
unmatched in the industry, just ask anyone who has ever worn them. Sidi was started in 1960 by Dino Signori, a lifelong cyclist with a passion for great shoes.
And soon, Sidi innovations like adjustable cleats, Velcro straps and micro-adjust buckles had become industry standards. Technology and innovations only go so far when it comes to shoes, however. Ultimately, it's fit and comfort that count most. And, Sidi knows that not all feet are created equal and they don’t just come in one width. So why should your shoes?
Sidis are offered in wide, narrow and women’s-specific sizes in addition to the standard width. To further dial in the fit, Sidi's Heel Security System lets you fine-tune the heels up to 6mm for a perfect fit and maximum pedaling efficiency. This prevents heel lift during sprints and climbs and you won't have to crank your straps down so tight your feet go numb.
Sidis are also made to withstand hard use by professional cyclists
and enthusiasts over literally thousands of miles (tens of thousands,
in the case of road shoes). And that means small parts need to be
replaceable. This extends the life of your shoes, so you won’t need a
whole new pair if a single part is damaged.
The passion to bring you quality, comfort, durability and longevity is what drives Dino Signori, his son Daniele, daughter Rosella and their devoted employees to make their shoes the absolute best they can be, which is why so many professionals will wear nothing else.
