Paul B. in NoVAwrote a review of Sidi Kaos Air Carbon Cycling Shoe - Men's on September 14, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
So far so good, comfortable footbed which was the main goal for me, my old Shimano's caused numbness within 10 miles or so, the stiff Kaos footbed fits me better and distributes the pressure much more evenly, it's an amazing difference even after 50+ miles. What is incomprehensible to me is the top of the tongue which is too long, with "teeth" that cut into my leg. The grooves that Sidi cuts into the last half inch of the tongue actually cause the tongue to curve downward, even with higher socks there is a constant "sawing" motion just above the ankle on the lower leg. Just a flat-out design flaw, luckily the padding of the tongue is not present here so I'll be able to cut this part off with an exacto knife. Not a huge deal, the rest of the shoe performs very well, but for $300 this is a major annoyance. From a purely aesthetic POV, the glossy white finish of the uppers is a bit much. I like the perforations and airflow, the graphics are nice, but matte white would have toned it all down nicely.
