These were my first pair of true cycling shoes. I needed something easy to walk in off the bike and of course a well made quality shoe. These checked both boxes and more. Very well made, true to size, and walking while off the bike is no problem. Wouldnï¿½t want to walk in them for miles but still comfortable for short walks.
Wow! I had promised myself that as a resolution to restart my biking hobby and get back to healthy, I would get a nice pair of road shoes. My original shoes were 6 years old and i really had no complaints. They were a pair of Bontragers, on the lower end of their scale. I have a wide foot, so I was skeptical buying on-line. But these Genius Mega shoes are amazing. Such a better fit and more stability out of the saddle that I didn't even know I was missing. If I could give them higher than a 5 I would. One hint that almost kept me from buying. Some comments on-line complain about the tongue rubbing the front of the ankle. Yup. That was true. Very uncomfortable. Then I noticed that the manual suggests to cut the tongue through the slots already on the edge of the tongue. 2 minutes later and all is good, although it baffles me why sidi didn't do this in production. A great shoe you wont regret.
The quality of these shoes is immediately apparent and the fit is amazing if you have truly wide feet. I thought my feet would be considered wide but not enough for these shoes. I'm used to a snug fit when shopping for cycling shoes but these left a lot of wiggle room in the toe box. even with aftermarket insoles to account for my ridiculously high arches, these were still too loose so I returned them for the regular fit in a size smaller. I normally wear a size 12 and ordered these in the 46.5. I went with the regular version in a 46 and that made a huge difference. Great shoes but only order the mega version if you plan on wearing 2 pairs of socks or have truly wide feet.
