The SiDi Genius 5 Fit Carbon is one of SiDi’s bestselling cycling shoes, high quality and well made, the advanced fit adjustment is a marvel delivering a consistently amazing fit, for total comfort during any cycling outing.   


Soft Instep 2

​The wide, curved strap of the Soft Instep Closure System combines with a thermo-formed EVA pad to distribute pressure evenly over the instep area. SiDi have made the system adjustable from either side so you can centre the pad perfectly. You can replace the entire system to ensure your shoe performs to the top level even after years of wear.


Millennium 4 Carbon Composite Sole

Constructed from carbon fibre injected in to a matrix of nylon, the Millennium 4 Carbon Composite Sole is more rigid than standard nylon. Durable, non-water absorbent and mechanically stable, the Millennium 4 Carbon composite Sole retains stiffness over time, despite prolonged hard usage and temperature changes.

Anti-slip toe insert and replaceable polyurethane heel pad make sure your foot stay in place with the Millennium 4 Carbon Composite Sole and add walkability. A standard 3 hole drilling system allows you to combine your shoe with the best pedal systems available, with printed 10 mm lateral and fore/aft cleat alignment in addition to a Look Memory Eyelet for simple and effective cleat alignment and replacement.

Caliper Buckle

A micrometric closure buckle which can be adjusted by lifting up the middle. Micro adjustment is handled by pushing the centre button for tooth-at-a-time movement. Easy to adjust during a race to give you the very best fit for any situation. Caliper Buckle closure for easy on-the-fly adjustment


SiDi Heel Cup

A reinforced heel helps hold your feet in an optimal position. The extra strength also prevents the shoe losing its shape when exposed to prolonged pressure and extreme performance, so you can ride with confidence.


Velcro Security System

Integrated polymer teeth that lock in to place when you close the strap make for a more secure fit. With the strap becoming almost immovable, you can be sure of a secure fit.

Sizing Information for SiDi Shoes



These shoes are great. Fit snug and comfortable. Straps and buckle are more secure and precise than others I've used. Cleat mounting is precise. Service from Merlin was fantastic - next day shipping, arrived in Canada in only a week!
Best price on the web and very fast delivery - Merlin score again. These shoes are brilliant and just ooze Italian style as well as performance - highly recommended, but be careful with the sizing.
Like wearing slippers.....superb
Great fit. Firm sole - Haven't tried full carbon soles before but definitely firmer than my Shimano nylons and don't think I will need anything further really on the stiffness scale. Great looking shoe and a comfortable fit. Went on 1st ride with them yesteday (70 km) and no hot spots. Little bit on the narrow side so go for the mega if you have wider feet. As you will find on many reviews, the Sidi insoles are very narrow. I didn't have a major issue with them on my ride but a slightly thicker insole would be more comfortable. These shoes DO have some arch support built in so don't believe the reviews that say there is nothing there. I have medium arches on the specialized foot measuring thingy and these supported my arch acceptably. Quality, design, looks, not even worth commenting on - they are Sidis and you know you are going to get a top quality shoe.
You get what you pay for with this shoe. Don't know how they do it but, as some others have said they are completely comfortable right out of the box, assuming you bought the right size of course. Actually you put them on the first time and they feel just like an old pair of slippers. For some reason they also feel light though they're not especially, they just feel light in the hand and on the foot. At last I now have a shoe that I can get tight just like I prefer it. I have very narrow feet and in other shoes with ratchet clasps I could never get them tight but the Sidis have an infinitely adjustable top strap so you will never run out of ratchet clicks for tightening. Don't worry about the cost just buy them.
