Hard to believe you can wear out your cycling shoe strap, but this isn't the first time. Cold weather is hard on them and many "shoe on, shoe off" cycles means that eventually something might give. Mine "gave" at the narrow part of the strap where it slides into the "holder" on the shoe. I have purchased these replacement straps in the past (always the Right one fails on me) and they work as good as the original. Great option to replacing a pair of shoes!
Not much to say, this is an OEM replacement part that was easy to buy, arrived quickly, took no time to install.
Anyone that owns a pair of Sidis know they are almost a lifetime investment. However finding replacement parts can sometimes be a hassle to find. After 4 seasons of wear I had one of my instep straps break so I had to go to a backup pair of shoes to ride in. After I finally found my replacement strap ( thanks bike tires direct) I was able to get back into my shoes. Replacing the strap was pretty straight forward once I got the broken piece out of the ratchet anchor. I have never been disappointed in any of my Sidi purchases and these were no different,they allow me to adjust the strap in small increments so my shoe is comfortable all ride long.. very simple but totally awesome..
A strap broke on my beloved Sidis. These are a quick and inexpensive save and easy to switch out. i replaced the buckle strap at the same time to make sure I would not have to ride with duct taped shoes again.
