I am not a professional bike rider and my last pair of shoes lasted me over 15 years, so I was due for a new pair of road shoes.
I have a high instep and liked the option of a Mega shoe. I ordered the my size I was accustomed to. However, because of the more spacious fit, I had to return and get a whole size smaller.
The latch system works great.
This is the second Sidi Genius Mega shoe I own. I still use my original but will use the second shoe for a bike at a different location.
The shoe is superb and is a life saver for people with wide feet, as many high quality shoes are very narrow which is painful. My primary purpose was to find a wide option so I could ride longer but I have come to find how great the shoes are.
The quality is very high as I have had nothing on the shoe peel or wear away even after thousands of miles.
In addition, there are replacement parts for the shoe to protect the investment of the overall shoe if a strap or heel part needs replacing, that is amazing,
Sidi is basically protecting the buyer from having to buy another shoe if a part needs changing, kudos to them, I will be a customer for life.
I have worn Sidi shoes since the mid 80's. They make the perfect cycling shoe imesho. The fit, form and function are all spot on. The shoes have improved over the years but Sidi has never missed a beat in the production of their cycling shoes.
I struggled to find shoes that are wide enough in the toebox to allow my metatarsals to spread when pressing down. Sidi came through big for me with these. Very comfortable, but good grip through the heel and midfoot. Comfortable around the edges, and tension nicely adjustable.
I'm a EEEEE guy and these offer a comfortable fit. With super feet insert, they have great support and really good power transfer. They could be a tad lighter and offer better heal retention but some of that is probably a sizing issue (I think I went half size too big).
I don't have this latest generation, but like the other post, I have put in about 12,000-15,000 miles on a pair of the original Sidi Mega road shoes over the last 7 years and they still look absolutely brand new. I have size EE feet, with a nasty bunnion on my right foot, but these shoes adjust incredibly to deal with this awkward foot issues.
Got wide feet - get a pair, don't spend another minute in a narrow shoe and learn what pain free riding is all about!
I was happy with the Sidi non-carbon plastic soled shoes I wore for about 10 years and 20,000 miles. Decided to replace them, when the lining started fraying, with something with a carbon sole. So I purchased these in size 46, which was the same size as my previous Sidi shoes, however they fit a smidge looser around the heel. Fit in the toe box is about the same, which is good for my wide feet. Now have about 500 miles on them and am satisfied with the stiffness of the sole. I bought them on sale from Bike Tires Direct and was able to use my points to help pay for them, so they were a steal.
My previous Wi-Fi was a bit too narrow so I decided to go mega. They are almost too wide. I put some inserts in the shoes are they are just right. I went with the same size as the previous shoes and I should have ordered a slightly smaller size. Same quality I expected from Sidi.
This is the updated shoe from the Dominator 5. Sidi has cut these a little differently (I have both these and the Dom 5's of old) where they introduced the Mega sizing. These seem to be cut wider across the ball of the feet and Sidi has reduced the volume of the upper a bit. So these fit me absolutely perfectly. Sometimes the heel can be a bit loose, but just put some plastic sheeting or other material under the insole (you do have upgraded insoles, right?) and they will fit exquisitely.
Something about what Sidi made these out of compared to the Dom 5's make them conform to your feet better than the street Lorica uppers that they used before. All of these are subtle differences, but the fit improvement for me was absolutely awesome.
Very happy for the upgrade and highly recommended if you have wider than average feet. Otherwise, it's the great Sidi fit and buckle system.
I have been wearing the same pair of my of Sidi Megas for over 10 years...still feel/fit as though they were brand new. Aside from the scuff marks, this shoe looks practically new.
I bike a minimum of two hours a day, six days a week, and these shoes never lose there comfort level.
These shoes are definetly worth the price and then some!
My new Sidi's fit like they were custom made for me. Past shoes did not take my tough fit well, but these are great. Adjustable straps and true sizing really beat the competition. Love these shoes!
I periodically try other shoes but always go back to Sidi Genius. The Mega Fit gives a little more room for swelling feet in high heat, long distance rides. Have used Sidi for over 2 decades.
This is my third pair ( each earlier pair from different editions) of Sidi's. After 30 years plus of pedaling I decide to go for the mega version this time because my feet are changing and need more width. I still prefer the velcro version. I find Sidi's to be very comfortable, even after hours in the pedals. Quality product that lasts.
Got these a size larger and in the mega version to use as a winter shoe and for ultra cycling (for when your feet swell). They are comfortable, even when too big. Looking forward to more and more miles on them. So far I love them.
