The fit you've been waiting for.
Sidi's Dominator was first designed as a mountain shoe, gaining a devout mass of fans amongst the dirt and mud-loving set. Later, it was tailored to work for 'cross as well, and riders reluctant to pigeonhole themselves into one discipline received it with glowing praise. Adept at carrying you through mud, grass, sand, and even tarmac, the Dominator Fit Narrow Shoes have been further adapted to accommodate cyclists with narrow feet. Offering a contoured, streamlined fit for cyclists who are accustomed to cinching straps and yanking down laces to get a shoe that doesn't slip, we think this version of the Dominator is bound to amass even more passionate fans.
The material partially responsible for providing the previously-mentioned tailored fit is Sidi's Microfiber Microtech, an environmentally conscious synthetic material Sidi constructs using water-based materials that leave a smaller eco-footprint during production. Sidi still ensures that the material will function in much the same way as its other synthetic uppers. Expect water-repellency, low weight, durability, and added breathability from perforations as you ride.
While the uppers are built on a narrow last, the two hook-and-loop straps and ratcheting buckle further allow you to dial the fit across your metatarsals and instep, avoiding pressure points while ensuring the shoe aids in efficient power transfer as much as possible. To help you avoid tightening the shoe to foot-numbing degree, Sidi also adds its Soft Instep 2 across the top buckle, an EVA foam cushion that helps to better distribute pressure across the top of your instep.
As you push towards the top of long climbs and over cruxes, the nylon composite Competition MTB outsole creates a stable, solid pedaling platform, consistently transferring valuable watts from your feet to the pedals. Sidi's molded, reinforced heel cup contributes to efficiency by locking your heel in place to eliminate power-sapping heel slippage. For the days when the terrain demands a mix of walking and riding, the Dominator accommodates two toe spikes for added traction.
- Q & A
Best bike shoe I've ever owned
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 44N
I have a very narrow, long foot that is hard to fit. 12AAAA I have never owned a bike shoe that fit. Because of the length I'm always shunted to a man's shoe in which my feet move both back and forth and side to side. Not the case in this shoe. The narrow last, Velcro adjustable straps and the ratcheting closure ensure your foots stability. The energy transfers directly to the pedal. These shoes come in multiple lengths and widths, something to fit every foot size. Highly recommended. Expensive but worth it.
