Still dominating.

When Sidi finally tailored the beloved Dominator mountain shoes for 'cross, it hit on a seemingly perfect formula. You know the result, because chances are good that, like us, you've been riding them through mud, grass, sand, and — yes — across tarmac. Happily for those of us who enjoy riding in multiple disciplines but only want one pair of shoes, the formula at the heart of the Dominator Fit Shoes remains unchanged for the new year.

The uppers of the current Dominator Fit model are the same Technomicro material used in the previous iteration. It's a composite microfiber that's created from strands that are so fine that each one is less than one-thousandth the thickness of silk. These fibers act like a natural leather skin, only with the advantage of increased strength, soft texture, and light weight. Water-repellent, quick-drying, breathable, and permeable to water vapor, it's obviously ideal for shoe uppers. It's abrasion- and mildew-resistant, as well, making it far easier to clean than leather. Additionally, this material is resistant to stretching and deterioration from atmospheric agents. And to keep your feet from getting too warm, mesh inserts were added throughout the uppers.

The retention system is built around Sidi's hallmark Caliper Buckle, a two-way ratchet that lets you micro-adjust the strap pressure in order to ensure that the fit of your upper won't be too loose or too tight. It's mated to a Soft Arch Compression Strap that evenly spreads the upward stroke pedaling forces across the top of your foot. The buckle provides four-clicks per uptake along with half-click releases. Essentially, this means that you're able to precisely tension the pressure of the strap. No other system provides more of a gentle and precise customizable fit. You also get the precision of two High Security hook-and-loop straps for volume adjustability. Its padded tongue with fit "relievers" is one final small detail that helps deliver unparalleled comfort.

The outsole also remains unchanged with a return of the MTB Competition Sole. It's built of the same nylon composite of Sidi's road-specific Genius Fit, which hits the sweet spot of stiffness, weight, price, and durability. Unlike the Genius, the Dominator features treads for debris and muck clearance. The compound in the treads is also softer than a typical mountain shoe for the sands and slick surfaces of cyclocross. The sole also includes the option of adding toe spikes, which are sold separately, for additional traction. Sidi includes a Reinforcement Plate at the cleat connection point in order to increase durability across the outsole and accommodate dual-retention bar-style cleats. However, Sidi states that this plate is not necessary for Shimano-style cleats if you're looking to shave grams.

Excellent do-it-all shoe for wide feet

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased my first pair of Dominators about 15 years ago for mountain biking and piloting a tandem bike. They quickly went from this intended purpose to being used anytime or anywhere I rode, dirt or pavement. When I retired the shoes in completely functional shape they literally had tens of thousands of on and off road miles under them. I just finally had to stop wearing them because they had become too narrow to wear comfortably due to foot changes we all have in the passing years. A couple years ago I purchased a pair of Sidi Five Mega road shoes and they were easily the most comfortable cycling shoe I'd ever worn. I previously reviewed these shoes on this website. However, after wearing the Dominator for all types of riding for so long I didn't like the off the bike feel of the Fives and also wasn't able to adjust SPD-SL cleats far enough rearward to be optimal. I recently purchased a pair of the Dominator Fit Mega and love the shoes. They are every bit as comfortable as the Five Mega (they are essentially the same shoe). Like the Fives the Dominator Mega shoes are very wide which allows a comfortable fit for wide feet and also allows the use of high quality footbeds without compromising space in the toe box. Stiffness - Sidi has definitely improved the stiffness of the soles both lengthwise and rotationally from the first pair I owned. On the bike the Dominators feel every bit as stiff as the carbon soled Fives. Weight - I wear a size 42 and the difference in weight between the pairs of shoes is exactly 100 grams. My old pair of Dominators? Considering they've gone with me on so many incredible rides over the years including Independence Pass, Trail Ridge Road, Tour of the Unknown Coast and numerous other century rides I think I'll just retire them to the back of the closet.

when will these be in stock to ship in size 46.5 narrow?
