Until I switched from MTB to road shoes, never knew the maintenance, replacement of bottom parts required. This is one of them. Does the job. Just wish SIDI would make components to last a bit longer, designed to protect shoe bottom with constant wear.
Having a good rubber heel is essential for traction of smooth floors and for protecting floors from scratches. These replacement heels are a great replacement for the original ones that came on the shoes. They are easy to install, stay in place, and do the job.
As I cycle enthusiast I enjoyed the fit of the accompany Sidi shoes.
...for those of us that walk off the bike (tour cycling) its great to know Sidi Engineers designed a replacement heal piece.
Make the shoe 'new' again!
Perfect replacement for worn heel pads. Kudos to Sidi for making that an easily replaceable component. One of my current screws was packed with dirt and mud so I had to dig it out with a pick before I could unscrew it, but it was a quick upgrade.
This rating is probably confused with a general rating of my Sidi shoes. The Sidi design allows for replacement of any parts as they wear to extend the lifetime of their shoes. This design has kept my old Sidis going for 10 years. I do replace the heel pads once or twice a year. Straps and buckles also are replaceable and I occasionally replace the straps, heel pads and cleats to refresh the shoes.
After years years of riding the old black shoens I finally purchased a new pair of Sidi white shoes for summer last year. Still the fully maintainable, interchangeable design. The old shoes are now relegated to winter riding.
