Sidis run really small. Bummer.
? i have 48s... maybe i didnt understand what you said, but SIDI has the largest assortment of sizes available.
i got some new kicks comin...the hard to find all white genius...sidis rule.
Maybe you should've gotten them from a bike shop so you'd have a reliable return policy rather than attempting to score a deal? (Big assumption here).
i used the chart, and measured the width of my foot and ended up with a perfect fit. however, i take a size 43.5 narrow, and no lbs around me had it in stock. i also ended up scoring them from universal cycles for $164.05 ( $193 - 15% coupon) which is well less than the retail of $229.99
my narrow feet love them

weird, i wear a smaller Sidi than any other shoe.
I think baxtefer meant the Sidi is a smaller numerical size than other shoes of his, rather than the Sidi shoe being small for the particular numerical size.
My experience is neither here nor there. Both my Sidis and my Campers are 42s and both fit perfectly. Never had any other shoes sized that way.
try them on in a shop, if there arent any sales going on you can get them on the cheaps on ebay after you know which size/brand fits best.
i got my sidi dominators for 40 bucks on ebay!

The question is however do you want them to fit perfectly when riding or walking? Personally, I can't seem to get both. Discuss.

i think that's the point of the ratchet and velcro
are these walking shoes or riding shoes?Originally Posted by zklone

I have a pair of Genius 4's in a 42 that fit with tons of room and a pair of Dragon's that I ordered in a 42 based on the G4's. They fit, but man, they're tight. When I got my wife a pair of Dominator's in a half size I understood. The heel mold on her's said 39 and then there was a sticker that said "1/2". So, I'm pretty sure that my G4's are really a 42.5. Luckily these fit, but I'm ordering a new pair of Dom's for winter and will get a 42.5. I'd like the agree with the comments about trying a bunch of sizes on, but the shop my wife works for doesn't carry many different sizes, there just isn't a market for them here. EP though, rocks.
Wait... I thought we were only supposed to take pictures of the bikes and put them on the innarwebs.Originally Posted by dmotoguy
Needless to say I went with what feels best riding but that also means that my bigger foot is very much in contact with the side of the toebox. So much the fake leather that shouldn't strech has been significantly molded on that area. Dunno. Phucken Italy.
And narrow. Apparently all Italians have womens feet.
my sidis are 42's...same as every bike shoe ive owned since '85... maybe you got a bad batch?
im italian, but no womens feet.. i can't find a comfortable pair of heels anywhereOriginally Posted by humble_biker
