3rd time for this brand!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I decided to try something different than Sidi after having issues with a stripped screw when replacing my cleats. No, I was not able to remove the insole to fix the stripped screw. I first bought a pretty purple Bontrager. They were comfortable and I loved the color but the sole was not stiff enough for anything over 25 miles and when the weather warmed, they were hot. I kept for shorter winter rides. I then bought a Fizik. They were comfortable out of the box and vented but the heel was too wide so my foot slipped up and down. I didn’t even try them on the bike knowing the heel fit wouldn’t work and returned them. I went back to what I knew worked, the Sidi. These are great! The shoes are not vented on the sole but much cooler than my pretty purple ones because of the ventilation on the upper material. The fit is perfect and the sole stiff so the bottom of my feet don’t hurt on longer rides. I wasn’t sure about the hot pink but it is partial and makes me more visible. I like the color better than I thought. I still wish they were purple but that’s probably the only thing I would change except lower cost! Bite the bullet and get the the Sidi.
