Sidi Shoes

Postby cobbler » Tue Jul 27, 2010 8:12 pm

Hi girls,
Do you have sidi shoes, what type are they, road or mtb? What size are they? How does the size compare to your everyday shoes?

I ask this because-
I have some sidi mtb shoes and want to get some road Sidi's.
I think I have size 39 Sidi's and I am a size 7 womens in most of the other shoes I buy, (or a 5b as it can be known as).
Do you think road sizing runs the same in Sidi shoes as the mtb sizing?
Thanks
cobbler

The GF has these.... she claims they are her most comfortable shoe she owns ( and my god does she own some shoes!!!! )

she is a 38 in the sidi and also a 38 in a normal puma shoe if that helps.... :mrgreen:

I have Sidi road shoes and just purchased some Sidi mountain bike shoes to replace my Louis Garneau's.

I'm a 40 in the road shoes and went with a 40 in the mountain bike shoes as well. I haven't ridden with them yet but I think they fit well. Next time I buy some road shoes I might think about going with 39.5 to get a fit that is a bit more snug, but I feel that I wouldn't want a mtb shoe to be too snug.

Thanks for the input so far. What size shoes would be your ordinary size? For instance most of my shoes are a 7, so if you guys are a 7 and wearing a size 39 shoe in Sidis then I can gauge my size. :wink:

I am a size 39 in most shoes. I was wearing size 39 mens shimano's before the Sidi's - but they were far too wide for my foot.

Hope that helps. If you can try them on somewhere then do. Even if you can find someone with a size up/down from yours you will be able to guage what is right. Before buying I tried on my friends size 39 Sidi's and realised they were too small, so that's why I went with the 40.

i bought sidi MTB shoes, cheaper ones, to check size and then bought road shoes the same size, fit was exactly the same. you can download a size gauge from the sidi website, put together right, it was totally reliable, make sure you display the page at 100% though before you print, i nearly stuffed up and printed first time at 94% which gave me a totally wrong size, did a quick logic check, LOL!

I've come to the conclusion I need 39's in sidi by going on your comments, the sidi chart and my 39 mtb's. Still, it will be a case of try before I buy.Thanks for your input :)

I have sidi, love them. I have 2 road bike shoes, one triathlon shoes and one Nike. The Sidi make women’s specific and they are great.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

Once you buy Sidi's you wont want anything else :mrgreen:

The only thing I dont like about Sidi's is the thin inner sole they come with :evil:

I always change my inner soles to blue specialized footbeds and a varus wedge in each shoe, my feet couldnt be happier 8) They make my shoes fit perfectly and extremely comfy, I never get hotspots etc.

The footbeds arent cheap but they are well worth it imo. If you are forking out $$$ for Sidi's, find some extra $$ for some specialized footbeds :wink:
