Take a ride with performance kicked into high gear. The Sidi Men's Genius 10 Mega shoe is built for road cycling, exhibiting a lightweight body that is tough and resilient for all the trails ahead. Make the smart decision and treat yourself to something genius.
The Soft Instep Closure System is a wide, anatomically curved strap combined with a soft, thermo-formed EVA pad that distributes pressure evenly over the instep area. It is adjustable from both sides, which perfectly centers the EVA pad over a high or low instep.

I have been wearing Sidi Mega sized shoes, 48, ( one Competitive site lists this as a 12.7 US ) for over a decade. Most recently I have been using Sidi Ergo 5 Mega and I was having some comfort issues. I use a professional bike fitter who also uses a customizable sole to optimize foot position. That said, I saw the sale and I ordered the Sidi Genius 10 Mega. When the shoes arrived they were different than the picture with upgraded black toes and tongue. I'm a fashionista so I like the hipster look. Think 70's cars with black vinyl roofing. When I inserted my foot I noticed the boot was very roomy. The heel cup was secure. As I cinched down the Techno wire, I noticed that the comfort on top of the foot was better for me than the Ergo model. The Genius in comparison distributes up along the length of the foot instead of across like the Ergo. Also, there is plenty of room for much warmer socks as the weather cools. I noticed that the extra room and Techno system did not irritate my 5th metatarsal giving me foot comfort. My feet did not feel confined and I was able to put maximum pressure down while going up punchy climbs. The other true test; at the end of the ride I didn't immediately pull off my shoes. Maybe meaning I could ride a little longer with comfort. I would buy these again.
This shoe provides a stiff sole and great transfer of power when smashing the pedals or in general pace riding. The micro-click tightening of the Boa system gets an exact tension you need. Have had these for over a year with no issues. I would definitely buy again.
Bought a pair of Genius4"s for $195 in 02. had to replace the Velcro last year. This year the instep strap split. Thay have them for sale but are on back order until end of march. meanwhile I taped the split with gorilla tape and will use them for my trainer bike until new ones are in. meanwhile, I Ordered a pair of the same size Genuis 10's (on sale for $276) and they fit perfectly. 21years and old and new ones fit exactly the same. old shoes still in great shape, after 2 minor repairs. Great quality shoes.
The Sidi Mega shoes have the widest toe box of any major brands on the market. If you have only slightly wider feet, the Shimano's may be a better fit, but if your foot is E or EE width, then this is the show for you. I like that most parts are user replaceable and that extends the life of the shoe. Also, I find that they are really stiff out of the box and a couple hundred miles help to break them in properly.
Good cycling shoe. Rigid sole was immediately noticeable in performance. I made a new PR on a 4 mile climb when I wasn't pushing hard. Of course, a tailwind helped a bit too. But overall, noticeable difference with the new shoe. Only issue is it is rubbing a bit on the left foot metatarsal but I assume that will calm down with breakin so I alternate wearing the old and new shoe assuming the breakin will occur soon.
