Sidi Genius 7 Road Cycling Shoes


The Sidi Genius 7 road cycling shoes offer high performance at an affordable price combined with Sidi’s instantly recognisable styling. Featuring a redesigned Millenium 5 carbon composite sole with injected carbon fibre in a matrix of nylon to give enhanced rigidity the Genius 7 provides superior power transfer through to your pedals. Off the bike an anti-slip polyurethane toe and replaceable heel inserts make walking easier and safer.

To avoid unwanted pressure points on the top of the foot Sidi have included an anatomically curved strap with a super-soft EVA pad and combined this with a Micro Caliper buckle that allows you to make simple on-the-bike adjustments to the fit letting you completely open it by lifting together both side buckles, or pushing the centre button to slightly loosen one tooth at the time. Two High Security Velcro straps compliment the caliper buckle to enhance the fit and keep the front of your foot firmly planted in the shoe. With heel retention in mind Sidi have included a reinforced cup on the Genius 7 Fit cycling shoe to support your heel and prevent any potential for heel lift when you’re stomping on the pedals out of the saddle. 



  • Soft Instep 2 Closure System for micro adjusted fit
  • Millennium 5 Carbon Composite Sole for a rigid and durable sole
  • Caliper Buckle closure for easy on-the-fly adjustment
  • Sidi Heel Cup for added durability and stable footing
  • High Security Straps for strong-holding strap security

Carrie-anne Very comfy shoe, fits well and my feet feel secure in them. Very nice quality shoe too, look amazing
S Kiernan A really good pair of shoes. If you have narrow feet these are a great option. They are really well made with plastic teeth on the velcro straps which help stop things slipping while out on a ride - a nice touch. The ratchet clip system feels far better at giving a more even distribution of pressure compared with my previous shoes (Specialized Comps). Only thing I'd suggest if you are right on the limit of the foot measurement on the sizing chart , is you can probably get away with going more than one size up with them being so narrow.
Jan I had to order a size up based on reading other reviews and when they came they fitted like a pair of slippers. Really comfortable and look great too. Nice discount and fast delivery.
MJW Great shoes. Always have difficulty in shoe sizing with any manufacturer. After very minor tweaks the shoes fit perfectly. Preferrer the ratchet strap vs the BOA. Had golf shoes with the BOA adjustment and the wire became frayed and tore the eyelet guides making the shoes worthless.
Mr Soler Great Product. Would recommend to anyone looking for a reliable and comfortable shoe.
Mr Collins Great shoe. Comfortable from the get go and easily adjustable for a nice snug fit.
stephen Good price, as always sidi are small so go up one size maybe one size and half? apart from that good quality and looks
David I really like these shoes. They are stiff but comfortable. Very easy to tighten on the move also.
Mr Bijl After using Sidi Genius 5 shoes for a few years I found out they were just a bit too small. The Genius 5 were my first cycling shoes. So now I went a size up with the Genius 7. It is a fantastic shoe, very durable, and some parts can be replaced if needed to extend life. These shoes can stay with you for 50.000 kilometers or even more. The velcro straps and adjustable buckle are also more durable than BOA lace systems. The buckle can be loosened or tightened while riding with ease with a bit of practice.
Robert My third pair of Sidis, these are the best pair yet. 45 are true to size.
Christopher Great Sidi fit and quality. Mid level shoe with matching price for all Italian. Maybe not as light weight as some others, but l am after the Sidi fit and quality.
Mr Higgins Shoes look great and got like a glove. Only one outing so far, but love the way they feel
Idris P. Super value and high quality materials that snug your feet comfortably for long distance ride.
IOSIF After 5 years with Gaerne shoes, I bought Sidi Genius 7. As good as I expected. Comfortable and stiff. The only thing I don't like is the clip on the first strap. I have wear these shoes just once and I 'm trying get use to them and learn how to open and close the clip on the strap.
Mr jones Excellent shoes and incredible value. Now in 7th generation.... I must have owned at least 4 of the generations!
Mr Csepregi Best shoes ever, durable, nice to wear and really comfortable. My previous model took 4 years before i decided to change. In fact I’ve bought the same model now
Pete Fabulous cycling shoe, a brilliant snug fit and clever logical adjustment mechanism. Beautifully made, superb quality
Ricardo Afonso Sidi shoes are the best for road training and competition. Sprint well they are confortable
Glen This pair of shoes is typical Sidi quality. No, they are not quite as light as some other brands, but they make up for it in comfort which in the end is more important to me.
Roberto Very good quality. A tad smaller in size than nw. It's best to get a size larger.
stuart These are decent shoes, at a reasonable discounted price and they're comfortable right out of the box. They're not as narrow as I expected and they're certainly not a lightweight shoe, but that doesn't cause a problem, it just contributes to a more plush feel than a set of lightweight racing shoes - you could easily wear these all day every day without getting sore feet. The fasteners are simple to use and work well, they don't grip your feet as snugly as the Sidi Shot but I wouldn't hold that up as a complaint, they're cheaper than the Shot and have a more basic fastening system so you get what you pay for. I can put them on and forget about them, they're that comfortable. There are better shoes out there if you want to pay more, but at this price point I haven't found anything to top them and in my opinion they're about as good as you'll ever need for the average amateur cyclist.
Mr Leavesley Was looking to treat myself to some sidi. I have sized up after initially trying some in my normal size. Well made and comfortable they are paired with speed play cleats. The fluoro is a vivid colour that I have in other aspects of my cycling clothing so goes well with that. Service from Merlin Cycles was excellent with good availability of stock and great price points.
steven Cracking shoe, comfortable, great value for money
Mr Moffatt Finally Sidi in size 49 - awesome fit !
Larry Great shoes. i have the mountain bike version as well.
Mr Lutz Been using Sidi Genius shoes for 20 years. There's nothing more comfortable.
Mr Marelli Great pair of shoes especially at this price. Beautifully made and extremely comfortable.
Mr Lefort Last pair I bought was just called "Genius", I think they are 12 or 13 years old. These look as well made and have improved sole, velcro and buckle bits. Maybe I will get 15 years out of these ones!
Mr Sloan Great shoes. Quality design, materials, and craftsmanship.
R C M-L Excellent shoes. Very consistent: I've been using the Genius series for decades, and can just order my size and they fit. The hardware and performance is always perfectly amazing.
Jeff Great shoe. Have been using them for over 15 years. Very durable. Half sizes are nice for fine tuning fit. Rather narrow show.
Neil Usual great quality from Sidi. Great fit and performance. Very small sizing - always a 44 in a shoe but needed 45.5 in these!
Steve B This must be about the perfect cycling shoe with ratchet mechanism and velcro straps; hope this style of model is never discontinued as experience of wires and cords is that these usually fail before the rest of the shoe is even half worn. Hope they will be as comfortable as my last pair.
Arthur So far so good. Just one 70-mile ride on them so far. Still breaking in. Well made. Still getting used to adjustments. Great look. First time I have received shipping internationally. Great price and well informed on shipping status.
Justin I recently replaced a pair of Sidi shoes that were 17 years old. The quality of the new shoes is as good as the ones replaced. Merlin offered the absolute best price and was extremely prompt with delivery. I look forward to another 17 years of Sidi service.
Mr Taylor Superb shoes, expensive but quite simply the best. Not only do they come in a great range of larger sizes (true sizes by the way) but the also perform very well. The carbon sole is very stiff and I have just taken a brand new pair for a weeks cycling in Lazarote where the hills are not for the faint hearted and these shoes delivered all the time. No lack of stiffness, great fit and comfort and still good 'feel' on the pedal, highly recommended. Only disappointment was that the larger sizes only come in one colour option but that is a very minor point. Good shoe, instils confidence.
Johnson Very impressed with these shoes. I've been riding with Gaerne road shoes for a couple of years, but there was something not quite right, so I decided to buy these. I've got to say they are extremely comfy. They feel very secure and the quality of finish is great. No more hot foot (caused by poor fit in previous shoes) these appear to be much more suppporting. I would definitely recommend these. I will use Sidi from now on!
