Genius Fit Cycling Shoe
These shoes were made for cycling. That may seem an oversimplification or statement of the obvious, but with so many footwear options out there, it can get a little noisy. The Sidi Genius Fit Women’s Shoes are made for the lady who logs miles, who wants a well-fitting shoe, and who maybe likes to look a little sporty, because, hey, these are Italian.
The Genius Fits follow in the footsteps of the Genius 5, Sidi’s long-running road standby. The uppers are Technomicro, a synthetic leather, and the soles are a carbon-reinforced nylon that manages to be stiff in the right spots, and flexible in the right spots, so you don’t lose any power transfer, but you don’t feel like you’re pedaling on 2x4s, either.
- Synthetic leather uppers conform to your feet without stretching, for the perfect fit every time
- Three-hole cleat compatibility
- Carbon-reinforced nylon soles
- Micro-adjusting caliper buckle
- Item #SID003G

These shoes are perfect for me. After trying a different brand (which was too narrow) I purchased these and I love them. They are just wide enough for a foot that is not especially narrow. The straps and closure work great and are very comfy. I highly recommend them.

Not the Shoe Pictured
Sidis are the best hands down and Iâm sure these are functionally fine...but these are not the shoes pictured in color (floro is more orangey) or design and will be returning or exchanging for the shoes pictured if they have them.

Finally, I needed some new shoes bad. I should have bought them sooner.

This is my second pair of these shoes. They are hands down the best bicycling shoes I have ever owned over 35 years of cycling. I have a wide forefoot and narrow heel and these fit me perfect. I think they are true to size. If you have a wide foot you might need 1/2 size bigger depending on how you like your shoes to fit. I do not mind mine being a little more roomy. These are Italian cycling shoes for serious riders. Some people complain about the tongue being stiff and scratchy. If you read the instruction manual they show you how to cut the tongue to fit your foot. This is what I did with my old shoes and it works great. I am waiting until these break in a bit before I decide where I want to put my snips. I love the closure system and replaceable heel pad. If quality and performance is what you are looking for, this is the shoe for you. I am stylin the pink and white. Cannot miss seeing me now.

Not What I Expected
The previous reviewer was right about the material of the upper: The tongue is made of hard patent leather and cuts into the foot at the bend.

These SIDI shoes are comfortable yet sturdy. The heel pads are replaceable. (Hint: Don't wait until you wear down the head on the Phillips screw. You'll play heck getting the screw out if you wear off the groove). Unfortunately, the toe pad is molded into the shoe, and not replaceable. But, the buckles and other hardware are replaceable, though I have never needed to do so. The composite sole is designed to be rigid and transfer power, rather than absorb it. It does the job. I prefer white, because that is what most pros wear, and reflections or white shoes are distracting to other racers... Cycling shoes are expensive, and if you are not riding more than 20-25 miles per ride, you can get by with less expensive shoes. My first pair of cycling shoes were some Shimano somethings as I recall, and they were okay... But, the difference between the Shimanos and the SIDIs was like changing from platform disco shoes to Bruno Magli Italian loafers. So, if you're having a birthday this year, you should buy them for yourself.

She Loves Her New Shoes
Upgraded my Girlfriend's shoes to the Pink & White. She loves them with the Dura Ace pedals. Advertised as true to size, but had to return the 42s for the 42.5 and they fit perfectly.

Gave these as a gift. She wears the Sidi Dominator MTB shoe and was in need of a road shoe. Size was the same in both and the leather stretches in the right places to conform to flat and boney feet. Street shoe is 7.5-8 US and wears Sidi 39.5. She doesn't wear a lot of pink but still loved the pink and white.

Pink & White
I have a pair of the black patent leather SiDi's and I'd give them 5 stars. For some reason the Pink & White ones have a stiffer tongue? Maybe once I break them in they'll loosen up. I didn't have to do that with the black ones. I wear a 38 in bike shoes but wear an American size 7 in street shoes so based on the size chart I bought a 39 previously else where. I was lucky enough to sell them for the price I paid for the black patent leather ones.

Hi Diane. did the stiff tongue in this model loosed up after some rides or did it stayed stiff? My wife just bought them and complains that the tongue of the shoe hurts even before pedaling.

Good fit and longevity
I just bought my second pair of Sidi shoes. I have a extremely narrow foot and this is the only brand that I've found so far that fits. I still have to put an insole in to take up the volume in the shoe, but once I do this it fits perfectly. I still have my old pair, which are fine, but wanted a different color. These shoes will last forever. However, I'm not a big fan of the shiny black finish. I preferred the previous style as I believe it had a more supple feel. Hopefully, mine will get softer with use.

I have a hard time finding cycling shoes. I have wide feet and flat arches. Sidi shoes measure the same sole length for both the whole & half size but the half size is wider for a higher volume foot. Once I learned that I was able to find that the 41.5 fit perfectly. I had tried a few 41 Sidi shoes and they were too narrow and I thought I wouldn't be able to get Sidi shoes. These shoes are very comfortable, great air flow and easy to keep clean. Worth the price. I am usually a 40.5 in Specialized shoes.
