    Hard to find a shop in Australia that will let u try them on without committing to buying
    Have to shop around for good price

    I tried on many brands of shoes and found their fit and comfort varied greatly between models of the same size. For a while I felt I would never find a shoe to suit me. Bike shops here in Sydney wouldn't let me try on Sidi unless I committed to the buy first. How could I agree to buy something that was likely not to fit too? Finally one shop agreed to let me try on a set. Fantastic! and they fitted like a glove! (or should that be shoe?) Every Sidi model I tried on fitted perfectly and felt comfortable. The shop had a great range and cut almost $100 of the price. I can now confidently buy any model Sidi shoe and know the shoe will fit. The sole is stiff and I feel the power transfer is excellent. My feet don't sweat much in summer and are quite warm in Sydney Winters. I use toe warmers mainly to protect the front of the shoe from scuffing. The show adjustment is excellent. I had to change the heel pad as it was warn after 2 years.

    Strength:

    Comfort, Light, Priced well if you purchase online

    Weakness:

    None so far

    True comfort. Went back to Sidi after trying Shimano and Nike. Like my past Sidi shoes, they came in without any need for break-in. Sidi is it for me! Never again would I stray away from these great shoes.
