The best kept secret in the pro peloton.

Sidi's all-new Five Road Shoe boasts a redesigned carbon composite sole which Sidi calls "Eleven." Unlike their ultra-rigid full carbon sole, the Eleven sole not only shaves grams and ensures efficient power transfer to the pedal, but also offers a little extra flex to keep feet comfortable during extended efforts. Though it isn't the most expensive shoe in the Sidi line, it's this balance between efficiency and comfort which makes the Five the go-to option for distance riding.

As always, the Lorica® upper material and mesh inserts provide a supple fit with excellent cooling and durability. The ratcheting Ultra SL Caliper buckle is paired with dual High Security Velcro® straps to secure feet with easy on-the-bike adjustability. Soft Instep technology ensures exceptional comfort with this security, while a molded heel cup prevents power robbing heel lift.

The Five Road Shoe is available in Black Vernice. Compatible with standard three bolt road cleats.

Note: If you are using Shimano SPD-SL pedals, it is recommended that you use the Shimano SPD-SL 10mm cleat fixing bolt set as the standard 8.5mm Shimano bolts have a tendency to strip the threads of Sidi shoes.

Very Nice Shoes, but Unfortunately Don't Fit Cost [$] to Return

I have worn my old Sidi shoes for 10 yrs. plus and needed to finally break down and get a new pair. I selected the Five because it was similar to my old pair (Genius if I recall correctly). Unfortunately the heels do not hold my heels firmly and would not work well when standing/going up hill. I tried to adjust the shoes in various ways to try to lock my foot in better, but no success. Have since returned the shoes and have tried a second pair of Sidis (purpotatedly equipped with heal adjustment) and had the same problem even with a much nicer, much more expensive shoe (so sending them back too). I'm not sure what changed in the Sidi's heel cup contstruction, but want to warn others you may experience the same problem if your heels are narrow.

This is my first cleated shoe. So, my impressions may differ from those more experienced than I am. Looking around at all the shoes on the market, Sidi seem to be the best made and sturdy looking, and Western Bike Works had a sale on these, making them the same price as the Genius 5, so I went for it. I have been very happy so far.

I have them in size 47, which fit my size 13 (Nike) feet quite snugly and don't move around at all. I replaced the original insole with a Dr Sholl's gel insole, and that has fixed my left foot falling asleep, so that's good - my left foot is smaller than my right foot, so I was probably over-tightening the straps.

As I said above, my right foot is a 47, and my left foot measures 45.5 on the Sidi Brannock device at my LBS (As I waited 40 minutes while no one helped me in the empty shop, lol). The Sidi Five in 47 fit my right foot perfectly, like a glove - so, it's very nice to find a manufacturer who makes their shoes precisely to the Brannock scale, which makes ordering online much less stressful. The left foot, being a size and a half smaller, fit a bit looser, but as I said above, a new insole (in both shoes) solved that.

The only thing is that with my SPD-SL cleats, the left cleat is positioned back as far as it will go, and I'm still not sure it's optimal, though during a bike fit, the guy said it was pretty close. Good enough for me right now, to say the least, as I'm just starting.

The cleats slip a lot on the carbon sole, but some 3M Safety Walk grip tape (the black outside kind) cut to the shape of the contact area of the cleat and affixed to the sole solved that problem nicely - from what I can tell, Sidi includes the 3M Safety Walk tape with it's more expensive, full-carbon soles, but not with the Five evidently. Weird. Anyhow, it's $5 a roll at Home Depot, so no worries.

I do not like this shoe. It's my feet hurt after wearing this on anything over 30 miles. The buckle's loose'n up on every ride, the heals slip and I'm sorry I spent the money on them. I had always heard that SIDI brand were the shizzznit! I'll never buy anything made by this company again!
