Real quick! Do Sidis run large/small/true to size?

I need to know like 5 minutes ago! Tell me now or I'll chop up a kitten!

I hate buying crap on the internet because of stuff like this! OMG!

True to size and not narrow. Unless you have really wide feet or want to get thicker socks in them for riding year round you will be fine.

I wear a 10 or a 10.5 and have feet thinner than most would think humanly possible.
I tried on the 44 and it fit perfectly. Everyone I know has gotten their size and been happy, except my brother that wears a 10.5/11 found the 44 to fit better than the 45.

If you can just go to a store and try them on. How sweet is the deal that you have found?

Found a new pair of Bullets in 44.5 for 50 bucks. I wear a 9.5/10 depending on shoes and I have a sneaking suspicion that these are gonna be too big.

FYI Dominators are cheap at REI

http://www.rei.com/search?vcat=REI_S...y=sidi&x=0&y=0

Mine ran small. I ended up getting a 43, which I wear in other cycling shoes. I can't wear my Sidis with socks, cuts off the circulation.

Definitely slightly small and narrow. I had to get a size larger than usual (49 instead of 48) and I have somewhat narrow feet, but they fit pretty snugly (in a good way, not tight).

sidi

My road shoes are Shimano r075 (? cant remember exactly) in 43.
But my Sidi Dominator 5s i got in 42.5.
I tried 43 and 42 and got to a 42.5 after some exchanges.
I also tried with some different socks I wear when biking.
I usually wear DeFeet socks now, I couldn't get any of the sidis to fit with the performance brand socks.
But I have narrow feet and the sidis seem to fit me good. They have a mega version for wider feet (normal I guess).

So far so good, it just took me a few times to find the right fit.

BTW, I love my sidi dom 5s. If I hadn't paid so much for the Shimano road shoes I would get their sidi road shoes for my geared bike. Best fit, power transfer (with eggbeaters), and cool look.

If you search my older posts, you'll notice that I don't normally. I just found a stupidly good deal on a pair of bullets and didn't end up jumping on it because I'd rather try them on first.

Werd.
