The Sidi Dominators have, well, dominated the high end mountain bike shoe market for an awfully long time, and it's not just because they look great. The original Dominators were comfortable, fit a lot of people really well average to narrow feet, mostly, and didn't mind being ridden hard and put away wet. One thing they weren't great at, though, was offering any kind of grip when walking or hiking. A couple years ago, Sidi revamped the original Dominators, naming the revision the Dominator Fit. Sidi's focus in this revision was cyclocross, a discipline that demands an awful lot of shoes. A good 'cross shoe has to withstand power pedaling, run ups, mud, sand, and everything in between. The biggest change in the transition to the Fit nomenclature is the sole the rubber's a softer durometer now, so when you try to walk over boulders, it won't look like a colt's first tentative steps.
