    Keep pushing.

    You'd be hard pressed to find a cycling shoe that combines svelte Italian styling with precise fit customization like the Sidi Men's Wire Push Cycling Shoe. Impressive out of the box, the Wire Push Cycling Shoe stuns onlookers with its glossy Microfibra TechPro material. This synthetic leather material emphasizes lightweight support and stability with added water-repellency in inclement weather conditions.

    The Wire Push Cycling Shoe incorporates Sidi's Soft Instep 3 System and newly improved Tecno-3 Push System for a fine-tuned fit. The Soft Instep 3 System distributes pressure evenly across the instep area with its wide, anatomically curved strap and soft EVA pad. It's adjustable from both sides, centering the EVA pad over the foot's instep to eliminate pressure points. The Tecno-3 Push System uses two ratcheting dials to customize the fit along the instep and forefoot with Sidi's proprietary, non-stretch wire wrapping for security. The Push in the shoes' title refers to the little red buttons on each dial, which release the ratchet levers for quick and precise re-adjustments, even while you're riding.

    Sitting at the heart of this cycling shoe, the Vent Carbon Sole seamlessly transfers power to the pedals while ventilating your feet with integrated air channels. Woven carbon at opposing angles maximizes stiffness for sprinting out of the saddle and cranking up steep alpine passes. This lay-up leaves a small degree of controlled flex along the toe area, relieving stress on the plantar tendon while promoting circulation. It features a standard 3-hole pattern with 10mm lateral and fore/aft cleat alignment scale for mounting your cleats.

    Awesome!

    Love these shoes. They made them slightly wider in the toe box area from when I bought a pair of Genius 6.6 several years ago. At the time I had to get mega because Sidi ran narrow. I can say that this shoe runs true to size and width. Love the techno 3 boa's very easy for micro adjustments on the bike with the push button. I had a pair of Lakes I bought from CC a couple years ago and they were great. However I found that the thing I missed most about Sidi was the heel retention system. Love it, keeps the foot locked in place.

    I will say that the Sidi's do weight more than my Lakes (CX237), but it is not a huge deal to me. Others might be turned off by the weight.

    I think they will be great ... run small

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    190cm (6'3"), 94kg (207#), ~15,000km/yr: I've probably put 80,000 km on three prior pair of Specialized S-Works that were my go to favorites. Unfortunately they changed the design so it was time to move on. These SIDI's looked to be the "one". I've tough feet to fit, wide forefoot, hammer toes, narrow heels. I got the 45.5 which is the same as the S-Works I've ridden for years, too tight. I exchanged them for 46's and these will I think do the trick. Length is still ok, width is good despite my wide forefoot. I didn't want to go with a "wide", though I do this is street shoes, as they tend to get sloppy with time in my experience. If you are considering these suggest you go up about a half size. Right out of the box they are very comfortable and the area around my big toe joint will stretch and mold once they get wet. I agree with a previous post about the closure, hard to improve on BOA but I don't think these will be too tough to get used to and unlike BOA's I don't expect them to loosen inside booties.

    So this pair will be a keeper and I'll write a more detailed review in a couple of months after I've got a few thousand km on them.

    This is a 1,500km update. It took about 1,000 km (~ 2 weeks, 30 hours of riding) to get these properly "broken in" to my "frankenfeet". They were pretty comfortable right out of the box but now they are "dancing shoes". I did a 200km ~6 hour solo ride in them on Saturday with no issues start to finish. They are stiff, great power transfer, and the closure system and adjustable heel cup really allow a perfect fit. I replaced the stock insoles with Superfeet Carbon insoles which cradle my feet better and offer better vibration absorption without losing road feel on these crap chip sealed roads I ride on most of the time.
    Some have commented on the SIDI closure vs. the BOA's. BOA's are great but frankly there is nothing in the SIDI closure that is not to love in my opinion, operation is very similar to the BOA and yes, you have to press the red button to adjust them on the fly but this is a minor deal and offsets the fact that they will not loosen when using booties which I've found to be an issue with BOA's. Easy to get used to, both great systems, no drama either way in my view and I switch back and forth across the several pair of cycling shoes that I have. I do think though that for a road shoe I prefer the SIDI system.

    I do a lot of hot weather riding, and the vent system on these seems to work as advertised, I find them to be well ventilated.

    After break in I am very happy with these, highly tunable fit, all day comfortable, and great power transfer. Expensive, definitely but I expect based on past experience that SIDI quality will mean a long service life.

    I'm not one to criticize publicly. OK, maybe I am when I feel there's a benefit to express alternate viewpoints. Therefore, if you want a hearts and flowers review, I'll do my best to keep to the facts after admitting Sidi shoes are beautiful, made in Italy, and no doubt durable. My problem with them is their "patented" closure system. It's one more step than necessary. Instead of improving upon the BOA closure, they complicated it by adding the additional step requiring you to unlock the handle before you can turn it. If you frequently adjust the tension, you'll appreciate the simplicity of the BOA closure. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. My other gripe is the comfort of the footbed of these Sidi's. Why not pay BOA their due share (considering the shoes retail for $400+) and instead take a page out of Lake's design book and improve the versatility of their soles to accommodate more shapes of feet. Who wouldn't pay a premium for glass slippers in cycling shoes? I put some time and money into trying all the very high end kicks available and none is close to the Lake CX 402's with their moldable carbon sole. I'm not in anyone's pocket just offering this up to people with high arches (and too often numb feet as a result of improperly supportive heals). For the record, I bought these Sidi's in neon green and loved the way they look but just never was comfortable over long rides. Most importantly, disregard everything I'm saying if you have low arches and think Sidi is the cat's meow. No doubt you'll get the nod from the weekend warriors sporting their Sidi's. However, if you want to distinguish yourself from the mob, look into a pair of custom kangaroos. Just my two cents.

    I ride every day best fitting sidi shoes ever. I have 3 pairs of sidi and the wire push fits the best ,wide in the toe box , size 46 - 11.5

    Still the best!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    I have ridden every high end shoe imaginable, and all perform admirably well, but the Wire's are a cut above. The fit is such that your feet feel as one with the bike; no foot pain, no hot spots, no issues at all!

    Not only are they the most supremely comfortable high-end shoes I have ever worn, they are every bit as stiff as the Shimano R-321 and Specialized S-Works shoes I have recently owned.

    If you're looking for the best shoes money can buy without going custom, look no further!!

    Oh, and get the green while they last; could you ask for a better colored shoe!?

    Very disappointed in the performance and fit of such a beautiful pair of shoes especially after breaking them in (2k). They have stretched out at least half a size and the teeth on heel straps do not hold their position if you crank too hard on the wratcheting lace.

    Incredible shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I struggle with shoe fit whether it's cycling or street shoe. It's always a problem for me. These shoes are amazing because you can get them to fit like a glove with the boa system that Sidi has created. Between the closure system and the heel adjustment, you should be able to make these shoes fit perfectly (provided you don't have mega wide feet). Because the boa system works so well, I find that I can tighten the shoes down less than with other systems but yet get a fit where there is (comfortably) zero movement of my foot in the shoe.

    This last is, I think, slightly wider than Sidi's previous normal last. I wear a either a 10.5 or an 11 depending on the shoe, but for Sidi I wear a 44.5 and it fits perfectly even though Competitive Cyclist's chart says that would match up to a 10. In all the Sidi shoes I've worn before, the regular fit has been too narrow and I've gone to the Megas to get fit properly. In this shoe, that's not necessary. My normal width in shoes is regular to slightly wide (again depending on the shoe).

    The uppers are not supposed to stretch, and I don't think they do, but they will conform to your feet. So when trying these on, put them on for an hour or so.

    I like these so much, I have both the road and mtb version and find the fit to be equivalent between them.

    I have about 5000 miles on these shoes. I have them mounted to Speedplay cleats and it all seems to work very well.

    Heavy

    I tried these shoes on side by side with other high end models of competing brands and was REALLY surprised at the weight difference. I have only ridden Sidi and have two pair. They have been through the wringer for over 4 years now. So in terms of quality, they get 5 stars from me. But within a year, my road shoes stretched and the heel became very loose. I have dealt with blisters for a few seasons and am now ready for a change. I decided to try these out. For the price, I just couldn't get over the weight difference between these and other pro-level shoes! I ended up returning these because they ran too narrow in the forefoot and because of the weight.

    Really Narrow and Full Size Small

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    Ordered the Wire Carbon and could hardly get my foot in them. Very narrow and they run a full size small. Very well built but not for regular or wide feet. I ended up with the Sidi Egro and am very happy. Order a full size up in any Sidi shoe if coming from Specialized FACT Carbon. Wore a 46 in the Specialized but ended up with a 47 in the Sidi. Only real issue is the serrated edge of the tongue. Sort of digs into the face of your ankle for the first couple of rides. Once it broke in I don't even notice it.

    Great Shoes

    I have ridden Sidi shoes for a decade now and their quality and performance is second to none. The push buckle system is super easy to use and dial in on the go. Overall I am looking to have a great year on these shoes.

    GREAT SHOES, GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE

    Kudos to Kyle B at Competitive Cyclist for his help in getting me these shoes quickly! I love my new Sidi Wire Push Shoes. They are super precise and stiff. The best shoe ever!

    Oh yeah, these are nice

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Longer-term review - bumped it down to 4 stars because the closure system is not very well designed for on-the-bike adjustments. Having to find the little lever and flip it up and rotate it is much more complicated than the simple ratchet mechanism on other models.

    I've worn many pairs of Sidi including some high-end models but these are top of the line for a reason. Everything that makes a Sidi a Sidi, just as good or better in every aspect than other models. Great Sidi fit, lighter than the rest, more streamlined, and as stiff or stiffer than their other models. I use Speedplay pedals but opted for the non-SP sole so I could get them in black. I'm satisfied - the adapter really does not add that much stack height - the adapters are simply thicker on the ends to accommodate the curved shape of the sole.

    I'll post my long-term ride after these are more broken in.

    won't stay tight

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: 44.5

    I've ridden Specialized S-works for years but will NEVER go back to them after riding Sidi. These shoes fit well and the fit/finish is amazing. I noticed, though, they began to loosen while riding after the first couple of months using them. Now, after using them 9 months, the right one begins to loosen when I reach down to grab my water bottle. Even the slightest of twist of your leg and the upper Techno 3 loosens up. When training or even in a road race it's not too much trouble to reach down and tighten them a bit. (Although it is a little tricky with the little button on the Techno 3 closure.......especially with full fingered gloves. And impossible if you're wearing shoe covers on a cold ride.) Crit season starts soon and tightening your shoes up during a crit is a recipe for disaster. And you shouldn't have to wonder if the shoes you put on and snugged up at the beginning of a race are going to stay on your feet in the final sprint. Sidi shoes are as fine as they come and these are really nice. If you're a casual rider and just want an amazing shoe and don't mind having to snug them up over a ride, these are hard to beat. If you want to put your shoes on and forget about them, these aren't the best choice in my opinion. Hoping the ratchet closure Sidi's will be the answer to my problems.

    Completely Surprised. But not Really.

    You ever see something and you put it in your cart? Over and over but your just like, the cost…its so much for shoes…that’s how I felt. I had a 300.00 pair, but I never felt 100%, and I have been through a LOT of shoes this was just the latest. CC then gave a HUGE discount and I said WHY not.

    The Sidi Wire is the best shoe, no comparison. I am about 280lbs, and rode about 2k miles this year. I ride a Colnago CLX 3.0 (Ultegra) here in NC. I love to ride. More importantly, I want to feel good and not have the pressure points, I have had multiple fittings, multiple small changes but never really found that zen. The sidi Wire provided that, I estimated the cleat, buckled in and off I went. Instantly, felt better. The carbon sole is really really strong, the fit is perfect, I wear a US 11 and bought the 45.5 Just in case, knowing I had the heel cup adjustment, and it was needed ONLY for the right foot, again ONLY Sidi can give you the ability to adjust the weird foot size when you’re a mm off a true size I probably would wear a 11 and a 10.5 if I could per foot.

    Just a great product and will never ever have to look again.

    Pure Enjoyment!

    I've been cycling for many years, and I wore Sidi shoes. When I got back into cycling 15 years ago, I wore different brands and had forgotten how comfortable and innovative the Sidi brand is. Right out of the box, this shoe is above others.

    Sidi Wire Push Shoes -Men's

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The infinite adjustability of these shoes is amazing! They are comfortable right out of the box and the soles are quite stiff and feel like they transfer 100% of the power to the pedals.

    Great!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These shoes are of excellent quality, they are nearly true to size (I went 1/2 size up), and fit like a glove. I would echo what others have said which is there are no pressure points and the boa system is perfect. The soles are rigid, the vent system works well, and they look great!

    Finally.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have a problem getting cycling shoes to fit. I'm borderline between a regular width and needing a mega. I bought these earlier in the season and now have a lot of miles on them.

    With these shoes, Sidi has put a bit more width into the width of the foot and used materials which really conform well to the foot. The closure system is nothing short of brilliant with a firm hold on your foot with absolutely no pressure points. It's actually easy to over tighten these shoes because of the lack of pressure points.

    What I found is that once they are properly set up, you foot is absolutely locked in place. It's a ski boot like fit with your foot firmly held in place, zero lift on the heel but it is comfortable. I cannot get my heel to lift from the sole even if I pull directly up with my foot and pull directly down with my hands - it's that solid. The benefit on the road is that I am able to ride with less pressure across the instep but absolutely no movement in my heel.

    This is really a big deal for me. Had this not worked, the next step was to get full custom shoes. Happily I don't need to do that and I'm really happy with these shoes - maybe thrilled is a better word.

    Finally, and the surprise to me with these shoes, is the super stiff sole. It's simply rigid - all the power from you leg goes right into the pedal. It's a noticeable difference from other shoes I've used (Sidi Dominators, Lake, etc...).

    Really like this shoes and highly recommend it. Spendy it is but there is value as well and for me it's a lot cheaper than custom shoes which would run 50-100% more.

    Best. Shoes. Ever.

    Tecno 3 Push Details

    I've heard these run a bit narrow, so I'm wondering if I normally wear a 9.5, if I should size up to the size 10 equivalent of EU44?
