New SIDI Models?

I normally access the SIDI website via SIDIUSA.com, but I recently stumbled upon SIDI.it. While I understand this is the italian website, it has the option to display in English. While browsing about, I noticed a lot of models I've never seen. In the MTB category, I noticed that they got rid of the Dominator Carbons, and replaced it with something called Eagles, and they also added another low-ish end (for them) model. I also found skate shoes and hiking boots, along with superbike boots.

Are these Italian only models, or is this an old website that SIDI never took down?

I think it's just their regular range - the one, and only, time I spoke to the US office about sizing they only seemed to know about the cycling shoes and even then it was as if the guy was reading off the US website. There's a lot of footwear that never makes it across the pond to the US and vice versa to the UK/EU (large/wide shoes)

http://www.sidisport.com/ - international site I think you're talking about?

http://www.sidiusa.com/ - US site?

Yeah, that sidisport.com thing is the same as sidi.it

Also, those offroad boot look sweet. If only they made an SPD version, I'd buy them and a DH bike just so I had a reason to wear them. =(

As with many european companies, they have two different product lines for either side of the pond. Many of the shoes are the same, but there are some differences (most notably, the euro shoes of many companies are much flashier)
