Sidi Wire SP Carbon Road Shoes

Attention Speedplay pedals fans: Sidi has just crated the ultimate shoes for you. The direct mount allows for direct mounting of Speedplay cleats with no adapters necessary. This saves 48 grams of baseplate weight and puts you 3mm closer to the pedal spindle for more efficient pedaling.

The Sidi Wire buckle system will draw obvious comparison to the BOA closure system due to similar design features. However upon close inspection, you will find they are quite different. There are two independent buckle closure systems in the Wire design. The lower is the Techno 3 buckle. It offers closure and release to the instep and fore foot. Independently, the top buckle provides closure to the very top of the shoe with a Wire-style buckle and Sidi's Soft Instep closure flap. Two buckles that allow you to vary the diameter and pressure you want on and around your foot. The micro buckles Sidi uses are light, low-profile and durable.

The hand-laid sole is the stiffest carbon sole to date. The front of the sole has a walking pad. The rear heel pad is a new lightweight design that is also replaceable.

The shoe upper is constructed from durable Lorica which is a synthesized leather-poly hybrid. It has the Sidi Vernice (ver-knee’-chay) sheen finish which adds durability and helps keep the shoe clean. The Vernice finish is hand-washable. The upper is perforated while the tongue has two screen vents for breathability. The heel cup is molded for support and features Sidi's adjustable HSS Heel Security System for total heel lockdown.

If you are a Sidi fan like most of us here, this is the finest shoe they have ever produced. The Wire system is light, durable and offers the ultimate in micro adjusting and fine tuning the fit. If you have been waiting to purchase or upgrade your current Sidi shoe, this is a good time to do so.

Shoe fits better than my old Sidi Genius because the redesigned toe box has more space for the pinkies. First ride was our weekly climb up to the Blue Ridge Parkway. No issues mirco adjusted the shoe as needed. Transfer of power via the carbon sole was evident Will take a while to get used to the "white". If you can afford these shoe buy them. One more thing the addition of the Speedplay stainless plate made the pedal a little more "slippery" with the float no biggie.

Pros: fit quality of construction

Cons: not really a con but the are super white

These shoes are super light, but I have had some issues with them. The first is that I've gotten hotspots on long rides. I think this is because my normal width 11.5 foot is a little wider than the last. The next issue is that you have to purchase a Speedplay carbon sole protector kit in order to use the shoes without damaging the carbon fiber. I had to make a trip to my LBS to get this $12 set of thin metal shims. Since they are required, they should be included with the shoes at this price.

Finally, the shoes use a plastic strap lock at the ankle opposite the boa twister. This plastic strap is locked into a hollow plastic box, located on the medial side of the shoe, by teeth. If your feet are narrow, the tip of the strap extends past the box by a few mm. This is just enough so that the tip can be caught be the pedal arm as shoe swings by on each revolution. This has happened enough times with my shoes that the box on my right shoe is now cracked at two corners.

Pros: light, attractive

Cons: narrow last, needs metal shims, strap issue

Super comfortable and micro adjustable. After 10 minutes or so of riding, the uppers become very supple and mold to your feet. re-adjust, never any pressure points. Have worn high end, Lakes, Shimano and Speciallized, nothing compares to these!

Pros: comfort, adjustability, low stack height

Cons: price, but in this case you get what you pay for

I'll get a pair of these if they ever install sole vents, period. Oh, it would be nice it they made the shoes for Americans instead of skinny foot Europeans.

Pros: Snob appeal. Nice looking

Cons: too narrow, no sole vents
