Details

Sidi's Genius 5.5 Carbon Composite shoes offer the latest in technology with a custom fit you'll love. The super-comfortable Lorica uppers have mesh panels that keep you dry and comfortable. Sidi's Arch Compression Straps, Caliper buckles and Velcro closures provide a perfect fit every time. And Sidi's Carbon Composite soles optimize your power transfer, prevent hot spots and keep these sweet shoes ultra light.

Sidi's Carbon Composite soles feature injection-molded carbon plates that bridge the heel and ball areas of the foot. This provides the perfect amount of rigidity for the ultimate in power transfer and comfort while also keeping the shoes nice and light.
In order to mount your pedal cleats to your shoes, they must have matching bolt patterns (pedals come with cleats, shoes come without). There are three configurations (diagram) used on cycling shoes, SPD-R, Look/SPD-SL and SPD. Road shoes feature one, two or even all three of these. Mountain-bike shoes usually use the SPD pattern. If you're unsure what bolt pattern your equipment uses, please contact us. We're here to help!
Sidi's Arch Compression Straps are anatomically shaped to spread the pressure and provide a snug, secure and ultra-comfortable fit.
Sidi's Caliper buckles make it super easy to fine-tune how tight your shoes are even when you're riding. Simply lift the Ratchet Levers to tighten, and press the Side Levers to loosen the fit or release the strap.
Fit Relievers are tiny cuts in the tongue that reduce bulk and keep it from rolling over and digging into your foot.

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

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?

The perfect fit with a flick of the dial!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 have replaceable components so you can keep them going seemingly forever! 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.


Sidi makes world class cycling shoes!
