For me good not great

PostedApril 15, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Looks great
The typical 46 for me when normally I would be 45. These are nice shoes but for my shaped feet are a slightly worse fit than my cheap and cheerful Shimano's. I have average to large width feet. Walking around was fine but after a few miles I feel slight discomfort against the bone on the outside middle of my foot where the shoe starts to narrow. I plan to move the cleats so my toes point outwards to remove the pressure and slackening the straps a smidgen helps but makes the shoe looser. I don't find the padding or comfort anything remarkable. I agree the soles are stiff and give good power transfer. I have a friend who bought white and these are starting to dis-colour for this reason I selected black. The leather-ette is the same as others. A really useful characteristic for me is the soles do not have too many breathing holes so for northern Europe climates they are far more useable year round. They look great to. Also remember if you have wide feet Sidi offer a special large fit. I did'nt go for it. Overall I think I will get them to work for me just not our of the box as I said good not great.

Great fit, very comfortable.

Went from Time RXT to these. Snug on my heel, but room for my toes. Sidi chart said 43.5, went for a 44 (same size as Time shoes). Great fit. The ratchet buckle is great for minor adjustment. Ridden 50km on a weekend ride and 50km on commute - no complaints so far.
