SIDI's classic road shoe comes in for a makeover.

The departures from its predecessor, the Genius 7, aren't too radical but they bring the Genius 10 in line with what today's cyclist is looking for in footwear: performance, comfort, and power.

Start with what's not here: velcro straps and ratcheting plastic buckles. In their place, SIDI has installed a customizable fit system that contours the water-repellent upper around the shape of the foot.

The centerpiece of this 2.0 fit system are Tecno-3 dials, knob-like interfaces that can be adjusted from both sides to more evenly distribute pressure over the instep area. Linking these dials together is an all-new wire material developed specifically for the Genius 10 by SIDI.

Manufactured with a Water-Tech treatment that eliminates chemical solvents, the upper is framed around microfiber panels that are supple, light and durable; vents strategically cut into the ankles and toes keep things cool when the competition heats up.

Down below, a nylon sole reinforced with carbon fiber adds stiffness without sacrificing power transfer. Rounding out the Genius 10's refresh are polyurethane pads and cups that hold the foot in place and combat pesky heel slip.

Features & Specs:

  • SOFT INSTEP 4 CLOSURE SYSTEM uses soft, thermo-formed EVA pad to distribute pressure evenly
  • Microfibra Microtech upper replaces solvents with water-based products for a lighter environmental footprint
  • Like most SIDI small parts, the TECNO-3 BUCKLE is serviceable and replaceable.
  • CARBON COMPOSITE 20 SOLE is nylon and injected carbon fiber.
  • Replaceable polyurethane heel cup
  • Standard "D" width for precise fit

Great shoe

Great shoes, great fit. Not as stiff as others, but actually that makes the shoe more comfortable. They really don't need to be like a board! Everything about the shoe is very well thought out. They're expensive compared to others, but I guess you get what you pay for. Sizing seems 1/2 size large, but I like a snug fit for road shoes.

Continued excellence

I've ridden with SIDI shoes since the beginning of time, at least when I started riding. The cleat was recommended to me by an avid cyclist 40 years ago. I've owned a couple of pairs of SIDIs. The last S-Pro (I believe that's the name, and I've used it for 10 years, and they still look new). Fast forward, last year, I decided to change things up and go with a lace-up version cleat. My mistake, as the shoe cleat plate, dislodged twice from the plate. I replaced them with the Genius 10 and couldn't be happier. The techno-3 system perfectly adjusts to the right fit. The shoe is perfect, and glad I returned to the SIDI brand. Adjusting the shoe during a ride is challenging. It's better to adjust a stoplight/sign.

Great shoe and great service from BIke Tires Direct

This is my third pair of Genius road shoes. The fit is good and I like the new techno fasteners, though tightening them on the fly is not as easy as my Genius 7 shoes. Also, I am glad to read some other reviews regarding sizing. Like several others, I found I needed to go a half-size down to get the correct fit. In this regard, I would like say thanks to Bike Tires Direct for being patient with me while trying to test the fit between a size 45 and 44.5.

Great shoes. Stiff and comfortable.

I was looking for a comfortable (yet stiff) road shoe to replace my aging set of Lake shoes. I tried several different brands over the course of a few months and finally found these Sidi shoes. At first I thought that they might be a little narrow but was pleasantly surprised to find that they fit perfect! They are wider in the toe box area the Fixik or Shimano. For me, they have also proved to be very comfortable. I look for shoes that are both good at power transfer and comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The build quality is also top notch. I would highly recommend these shoes.

This is a really nice shoe

So what is in it for $300? First thing that caught my attention? The feel. It fits too good. Ive been used to a shoe, and a very good shoe, but a lesser shoe. It fits so good it made me second guess it. I adjusted the boas repeatedly. I tried it on with a wool sock. I tried it on with no sock. I think we get so used to the things we use everyday. That makes change hard. But not impossible. Its not narrow. I have plenty, not too much room at the toe. It feels like a slipper. It looks small too. The same size shoe(43) in my current road shoe are a bit bigger. The boas adjust precisely. Pinch and release, crank them to snug it down. There isnt any information as to size recommended on this site. I dont think I found it exactly on Sidis sight either. 43 read 8.8 on the box. They are Italian so take it for what its worth. I installed my Speedplay cleats and did a few laps to get them positioned just right. Bottom line. Probably worth more than $300.

Great Shoe But Sizing Has Changed

I have ridden Sidi shoes for over a decade, as they comfortable and hold up great year after year. Although the wearable parts are replaceable, the only thing I have ever had to replace is the heel pad.

I wanted to move on from Velcro and the clunky (but durable) ratcheting buckle to a more modern Boa-like mechanism, so I upgraded from a 3 year-old pair of Genius 7 shoes to these. The Genius 10 shoe looks much better, and fits better than the Genius 7. The Sidi Tecno-3 mechanism works very well to get a secure, and evenly snug fit across the whole foot. However, like another reviewer noted above, I think that the Genius 10 shoe is just a bit longer than the Genius 7. In the Genius 7 a size 45.5 fit me perfectly, but a 45.5 in the Genius 10 was just a few millimeters too long, so I returned them for a size 45 - which is perfect. The Genius 10 is also plenty wide in the standard D width for me. Overall, these are great shoes for the cycling enthusiast, comparable to $400 shoes in other competitive brands.

Solid Sidi Quality

Hard to believe these are entry level Sidi road shoes at this juncture. I am very satisfied with Sidi version of Boa closure, seems to be built to last and it's a huge upgrade over the traditional closure system. All in all after the first 500 miles on the road I am pleased this far. Putting them a tick or 2 above the Shimano RC7s I have had for about a year. Entry level yes, but high value for the price I think.

Comfy shoes

These fit like a glove. They are lightweight but stiff enough not to lose power when pedaling.

Just make sure you follow their sizing chart and go one size up if you are in between sizes.

Great shoes that exceeded my expecations!

I went though about 4 different types of shoes before I tired the SIDI's. I was impressed with the overall construction of the shoe. The shoe are comfortable on my first ride out. Fit is great and the shoe feels perfectly stiff. I tend to have a slightly wide foot (my usual brand is Lake) and these shoes have plenty of room. They also hold my foot securely. I am impressed with this brand and they will become my go to cycling shoes.

My first road shoe is awesome!

My cycling shop owner suggested the Sidi brand road shoe after I asked Bill what he would buy. Turns out both he and his wife use Sidi brand road shoes - and have for years. After quickly receiving my shoes from Bike Tires Direct I couldn�t wait to try them. They were comfortable and intuitive to use from day one. And so comfortable! Love the boa fasteners, so easy to tighten and loosen. I got white and black shoes - very cool looking with my kits. I would agree with Bill that you can�t go wrong with Sidi (they are Italian).

Very good shoe!

Right out of the box, these are great looking shoes. After a couple hundred miles and some adjustments to the cleats, they feel great. I'd like to give them 5 stars but I need to use them for a longer period of time before I can do that. They seem like a durable shoe and I hope they last me for a number of years.
