With a reputation for race proven quality, Sidi tops the list of shoe brands for many cyclists at all levels of the sport. Sidis can be found turning the pedals across the world during training rides, gran fondos, Grand Tours, and everything in between. The Sidi Five Euro Edition Men's Shoes continue this tradition of excellence with classic Sidi design and a flash of Italian style. Sidi designed the Five as an update to its best selling Genius 5 road shoes. The Five maintains the popular shape and fit of the Genius 5 and utilizes a soft, durable Technomicro microfiber upper with mesh paneling to keep your feet comfy and dry. Sidi also adds a Soft Instep Closure system and a padded tongue to evenly distribute pressure and reduce the potential for uncomfortable pressure points getting in the way. The sole on the Five is Sidi's Eleven Carbon Composite Sole, constructed from a layered 3k weave of carbon and Nylon 12 for a lightweight and stiff sole that won't deform in hot, humid conditions. It's lighter than the Genius 5 sole without any compromise on stiffness, so the shoes are lighter on long climbs without sacrificing punchy power when gaps start to open up. All that comfort and power transfer doesn't do any good if the shoe won't stay in place, so the Five Euro Edition Shoes come with two High Security hook and loop straps with reinforced locking teeth and a two way ratcheting buckle that allows for incremental adjustment, even on the fly. Combining the closure system with the Five's molded plastic heel cup is about as close to a custom fit as you can get without actually ordering custom shoes and will keep your feet happy as you fly down the road for years to come.
