I have been wearing Sidi shoes for both road and mountain biking for over 10 years. The fit and finish of the product is excellent and I believe it is a case of getting what you pay for. I have used both Speedplay and SPD pedals to good effect.
Another awesome SIDI shoe. I hail from roadtriathlon riding so was missing the adjustable heel cup from other models. Once I sorted out the best fit for my slightly narrow feet it was game on! Others like me might want to 1-ensure toe box comfort (length) 2-make strap ratchet adjustments (width) and 3-maybe explore insoles (footbed) to find that sweet ratchet click' that makes it feel all like a glove.
So good I had to buy them again. My first pair lasted 14 years. So, when they finally looked to worse for wear I had to buy them again. Just as happy with the new ones as the first pair. Buckle and Velcro have always worked flawlessly. And they are really easy to adjust while riding.
My first pair fit so well I often wore them with out socks and never had a blister. Probably a bit of a triathlon carryover in to my mountain biking, because it did cause for a painful surprise whenever a small pebble found it way in there. But the stream crossings didn't leave me with a wet foot for as long either, so both have there advantages.
You won't be disappointed.
I've been long time Sidi shoe fan. This is the first non road shoe I've purchased from Sidi. Same quality and fit I've come to expect from Sidi road shoes. Fit comfort was perfect on first ride. Little to no break-in. Foot is snug and excellent sole stiffness.
I use them on my mountain bike and for spin class. They fit great and are easy to get on and off.The straps and ratchet buckle make them very easy to adjust. The quality is obvious when you seethes in person. I have a really wide foot and the regular width shoes fit fine, no need for the mega's. They are a little tight on top of my toes but I keep paper stuffed in them when nt in use and that helps with that.
This shoe is replacing a pair of the same shoe that I had for years. Very reliable shoe that is very comfortable and fits like a glove. This shoe withstands all conditions and many parts on the shoe is easily replaceable if needed.
I purchased a 44, same as my Sidi road shoes, and they fit my size 10.5 feet perfectly. I had some crank arm rub at first but re-positioning the cleats and cutting off the excess strap appears to have fixed that issue. I also purchased the crank brothers sole protectors, not sure if necessary but add some peace of mind.
Nice shoes, comfortable and quality construction. Great fit. Had a little issue w crank rub on first ride. Hoping the cleat adjustment and cutting off the excess strap on the inside side of the shoes has solved it. If it wasn't for this would have been a 5 star review.
I needed something wider than my previous Bontrager MTB shoe, and this definitely is. I really like the shoe, but had to get a Brooks insole for them, as the very racey insoles that came with the shoes were very light but paper thin.
Quite simply this Sidi shoe is the most comfortable shoe I own and it's a mountain bike shoe. Every other shoe I've worn in the same price range is complete trash in comparison. I will never own another mountain bike shoe and I'll be switching to their road shoes next. Thanks Sidi for actually knowing how to make shoes.
Have worn sidi shoes since the first dominator and in person the redblack are stunning but since an accident 3 years ago I have tried 2 different sidi shoes and they are very uncomfortable for me I am sure it is just me
