Though it makes motorcycle boots, Sidi may be forever synonymous with cycling, thanks in part to the incredible popularity of the Italian brand's Genius 5 cycling shoe, which delivered remarkable durability, comfort, and high performance without costing an arm and a leg. Ever the innovator, Sidi is now offering the Five Shoes for Women — a marked improvement over its predecessor in a number of key components.
Unchanged from the Genius is the Five's superlative fit constructed around its robust Lorica upper. Like many synthetic leathers but without the downsides, Lorica quickly conforms to foot profiles, is highly breathable, and will not stretch. In addition, Lorica is water repellent, highly abrasion resistant, easy to clean, and it won't rot or dry out. Sidi combines Lorica with ballistic mesh in key areas of the shoe enhance its comfort, fit, and ventilation properties.
New to the Five is Sidi's Eleven Carbon Composite Sole. This proprietary and lightweight sole is constructed from a layered 3k weave of carbon fiber together with a matrix of Nylon 12, which ensures the sole doesn't change shape after prolonged exposure to heat or humidity. Most impressive about the Eleven sole is how exceptionally stiff it remains — a full 20% stiffer than the Genius soles--despite its composite construction. But more importantly, even with the uptick in stiffness, the toe area of the shoe offers a subtle degree of controlled flex to biomechanically relieve stress in the plantar tendon as you ride. If overly stiff shoes are a bane of triathletes in the transition areas, the Eleven Sole should be something of a godsend, as it prevents excessive soreness after long rides.
Sidi adds a ratcheting buckle so you can micro-adjust strap pressure 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 more evenly spreads the upward stroke pedaling forces across the top of your foot. The buckle provides 4 clicks per uptake along with half-click releases, meaning that you can precisely tension the pressure of the strap. No other system so precisely and so gently provides custom fit. You also get the precision of two High Security Velcro straps per shoe. The Velcro is reinforced with integrated locking teeth to absolutely, positively resist slippage. Combine these straps with a molded plastic heel cup and you end up with unmatched security. Its padded tongue with fit 'relievers' is one final small (but important) detail that helps deliver unparalleled comfort.
The Sidi Five Women's Shoes are available in the color White and in both half and full sizes from 38 and 43.

- Q & A
She loves them!
I got these shoes for my lady as a Valentine's gift. (couldn't wait to give it to her) "Way better than jewellery and so pretty". Ok, only one ride so far, but she says they're perfect. My opinion, Sidi makes the best cycling shoe, so that's why I got them for her. They last forever and nothing compares!
Sizing seems to be spot on. She wears US size 8.5-9, labeled 8.75 on the box, Euro 41.
Update.. A month later and she still loves them.
Very good craftsmanship.
This shoe runs a tad bit shorter in length and narrower in width than the 5-pro. I wear 40.5 in the 5-pro and had to exchange my order to 41. Quality craftsmanship, which I predict will last a long time even with frequent use. Customer service was very helpful with the exchange.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I bought these for my wife, she's been using Sidi Dominator MTB shoes both off- and on-road for years, it was time for a dedicated road shoe. She recently tried some slightly cheaper road shoes from other brands but nothing fit right or was stiff enough, so back to the known entity with these.
These shoes are so stiff I cannot flex them at all by hand, and they're scary light. I think the pair of 41 shoes is lighter than a single Speedplay pedal.
Great cycling shoe
I bought these for my Wife who is a loyal Sidi mountain bike shoe customer. I was going to go with the all Velcro version, but glad I went the the dual Velcro + Ratchet. The ratchet seems to give more pedal efficiency especially on the long rides.
Sidi Five Shoe - Women's
Hi, these aren't shown on the Sidi website. What is the difference between these and the Genius 5-Fit? I can tell they are different because the shoes on their website have '5-fit' on the side of it, instead of the 'Five' that is shown on this picture. I have a 2014 model which has the s-fit and not the five on it.
what year is this model
Last year's model, awesome deal right now!!
Will these work with SPD cleats?
These will work with any 3-hole road cleat! So as long as you get the SPD Road cleats, that will work. (NOT the MTB version)
What is the weight per shoe? Do they run true to size?
Speed play compatible?
can you use this for soul cycle which...
can you use this for soul cycle which requires look clamp
This shoe is compatible with Look cleats and all other road pedal cleats. Just make sure you get the right Look cleat, the Delta and Keo aren't interchangeable.
@ Shae --- so they are compatible with spd cleats? You stated, "all other road pedal cleats" so I purchased them, thanks for the help! :)
