The Genius 6.6 gets a major update, following in the footsteps of Sidi's top-of-the-line Wire Road Shoe. This Mega version is designed for riders with wider feet.

At the heart of this redesign is Sidi's newest Vent Carbon Sole®, which features air channeling ports for heat dispassion and comfort across a wide range of race conditions. The vents have also been made closeable, allowing riders to block out the wind on chilly rides too. The T700 Carbon construction delivers a feathery low weight without giving up the stiffness demanded by competitive athletes.

Next, new Vented Dual Density insoles provide comfort underfoot and have corresponding perforations to the sole vents for unimpeded airflow. The redesigned Adjustable Heel Retention Device now features ventilated lower area as well, along with a wider design and more compliant material. The result helps eliminate power robbing heel lift without discomfort.

Smartly, Sidi has made no changes to their celebrated retention system. The Genius 6.6 Vent features a ratcheting Caliper Buckle for easy on-bike adjustment, and two High Security Velcro® lower straps for an optimized fit and superior comfort. The Soft Instep Closure System® and padded tongue help eliminate pressure points, and the system has been slightly lighter for a leg up on race day.

The Genius 6.6 Carbon Vent Carbon Mega Road Shoe is available in White/Black Vernice. Of course virtually all of the Wire's small parts are replaceable and readily available, ensuring your shoes stay on the road, season after season. Compatible with standard three bolt road pedals. This is the wide version. A standard width is available separately.

Please note: This product ships signature required.

Buy this shoe if you have wide feet

if you have wide feet (2E, EE), this shoe is a wise investment. I just did a century, lot of acscent, with over 7k ft of elevation, and my feet remained comfortabke from start to finish. I used to wear a Specialized Expert road shoe size 44. My feet would hurt-my distal fifth metatarsal would turn red, warm and panful. I did a century with my Specialized road shoe and my feet would hurt to the point I want to stop to let my feet breathe. I know this shoe is pricey but it's really worth the price. Your feet will love it.

Best shoe for wide feet, adjustable for narrow ankle.

I have EE wide feet with a narrow ankle and these shoes are the best fit for my feet. I have tried a lot of shoes including wide toe box and wide shoes from Shimano, Specialized, LG and Lake, but they all fell short in on way or another. Many provided a sloppy feel, or the wide version of their shoe was only marginally wider than their normal size. The Carbon Vents have a nice wide toe box and the adjustable heel cup keeps my heel anchored nicely. The shoes are so stiff, that you can tell more power is getting to the pedals. However, they are not as forgiving as the Genius. All in all, I love these shoes.

Awesome shoe.

Great adjustability, very comfortable once adjustments are dialed in. Stiff sole noticeably improves energy transfer.

Sidis simply fit.

My third pair of Sidis. For my wide feet, no other bike-shoe manufacturer's stock last will fit me. The 6.6 uppers have an initial plasticky look and feel but they have softened up okay. Kinda blingy, but I look as if I'm riding 5% faster than I was with my tired Sidis.

Great shoe, but I probably should have bought my first one in a LBS.

I really like this shoe and the price was good. After wearing it a bit, I find that the Mega may be a bit wider than most people claim. I have wide, flat feet, but the Mega is still a bit wide for me. I have not tried the non-Mega, so I really cannot compare. Perhaps I should have bought my first pair at a local bike shop so that I could get the size perfectly. Still, the shoes are very comfortable. And I like the replaceable heel and toe.
