Season after season, the Sidi Genius shoe remains both Sidi and our best selling road shoe. And for good reason. The Genius Fit serves up performance and a perfected fit that is unmatched at this price point. Beyond fit, value and performance, the quality of the design and materials ensure that these shoes last for many seasons. A high quality upper, specifically design sole and a simple, but brilliant retention system make the Genius a winner and easy choice for many riders.
The Sidi Genius Fit upper is constructed of Sidi's proprietary Tecnomicro fabric. This synthetic leather upper is thin, breathable, extremely stretch resistant and durable. Venting is accomplished with mesh inserts. A low profile and refined Caliper Buckle has a two-way ratchet for easy on-bike adjustment with incremental tightening and loosening. The buckle strap is attached to an adjustable Soft Instep Closure System and padded tongue eliminate pressure points.
Sidi designers developed the Millennium 4 sole specifically for the Genius Fit. Sidi takes the standard Millennium nylon sole and adds carbon fiber to the nylon matrix which adds both stiffness and comfort by dampening road vibration. The Millennium 4 features engineered flex to take the edge of and provide some comfort and relief. While the majority of the sole is stiff, the fore foot-metatarsal area has just a bit of elasticity to bring great amounts of comfort and wards off hot spots on longer rides. The industry standard three hole Look cleat pattern fits all modern cleats and the replaceable heel pad extends the life of the shoe.
