SiDi Wire Carbon Vernice Road Cycling Shoe
SiDi Wire Carbon Air Vernice
The Wire Carbon Vernice Road Shoe features all the outstanding quality and top end features that make Sidi a staple of cycle shoe excellence. With Soft Instep 3 Closure, Adjustable Heel Retention and Techno-3 dial for a detailed custom fit.
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 center the pad perfectly. You can replace the entire system to ensure your shoe performs to the top level even after years of wear.

- Techno-3 System dials with proprietary non-binding wire for custom fit
- Adjustable Heel Retention Device reinforces heel cup for better fit during high movement moments
- Sidi Heel Cup for added durability and stable footing
- Cleat Fitting - 3 Bolt Look Type:
- Sole Material: Carbon fibre
- Soft Instep 3
Vent Carbon Sole:
A replaceable polyurethane heel pad and replaceable integrated toe pad/vent cover give your shoe excellent walkability. The light weight and stiff properties of the Vent Carbon Sole allow for high performing power transfer. Designed with integrated vent and air channels, the resulting heat dissipation and air flow make for comfortable warm weather wearing. With the option to open or close the vents you can be sure of comfort whatever the weather.
A weave pattern carbon fibre construction maximizes the soles stiffness while allowing for a small degree of flex in the toes. This carefully designed flex biomechanically relieves stress on the plantar tendon and helps promote circulation. A standard 3-hole drilling pattern, printed 10 mm lateral, fore/aft cleat alignment scale and the Look Memory Eyelet combine to result in an easy cleat usage system. You'll be able to replace and align your cleats with ease for your perfect fit and positioning. The vents also assist water draining, helping you lose the water after a wet triathlon transition.
The dials of Sidi's Techno-3 System are placed along the length of the shoe so you can adapt the upper shape to fit your needs. A proprietary non-binding wire material means that the dials can be quickly adjusted on the fly with minimal effort. Sidi's knack for making great systems that can be serviced or replaced continues with the Techno-3 System.
Adjustable Heel Retention Device:
Simultaneously reinforcing the heel cup and adding yet more tweakable fit options, the Adjustable Heel Retention Device closes the back of the shoe securely around your heel. This way, the back of the heel stays in place better during steep climbs or sprints. The system is light weight, easy to use and fully replaceable.
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.
Fernando The best cycling shoes very comfortable and fits great. It's expensive but worth it
Mr Vesterbaek Best shoes I have had. Sits perfect on the foot and no pain anywhere even during long rides.
Mr Craig I've had a pair of Sidi Genius shoes for the last 10 years and been very impressed. Just bought new bike, so time for new shoes! Luckily the Sidi Wire Carbon shoes were in the sale as full price was beyond my budget. I ordered same size (44) as my Genius shoes. Instantly out of the box they are impressive (bright blue/white). Put them on and very easy to get comfortable with all the micro adjustments. Definitely a big step up from the Genius. Vents are very effective and run cooler in hot conditions compared to Genius. Great product, amazing price..... as usual fantastic service from Merlin
Rommel Mangulabnan Super comfortable and fits my foot shape perfectly. I have a narrow foot so the micro adjustability worked well to dial it in just right!
Mr Merritt These shoes are well made and a lot of adjustment is possible to get the fit right. The half sizes appear to be just a wider fitting. Went for a 45.5 the fit is great. I've got two pairs. Best shoes I have had.
Mr Morrison Great fit / easy to follow self fitting guide
Mr Hale Good fit in line with sizing and like the idea that you can replace components as and when required. Definitely a shoe to last. Competitive pricing and great prompt service from Merlin with no fuss. Can't fault .
Mrs gagnon It's my 2nd pair of Sidi Wire; always the best cycling shoe for me. Right fitting size (42) I'm a woman and my cycling shoe fitting is better with men cyling shoe 42. So, I like the Yellow fluo/black, very nice...Finally the carbon sole is what I prefer in this cycling shoe (great feeling).
Lee Superb shoes. Quite narrow fitting but really comfortable with various adjustments, heel grip etc. Wire fastening so easy and secure. Definitely recommend spending extra to get something superior
Mr Ingham Beautiful pair of shoes, very comfortable, and true to their size chart, so when choosing, trust the chart that is provided.
crankyminion My first pair of Italian footwear. Very well made. Size chart works perfect for me. Couldn't resist the sale. It would cost me a fortune to buy them locally.
Mr Pihlamo These shoes are easily worth for their price. Carbon sole and Tecno - 3 PUSH System make them stiff and comfortable. Not for walking around.
Brian Nice fit and the comfort seems to be much better compared to my Sidi Ergo shoes that I have been using for a couple of years. The closure system is excellent which I think adds greatly to the comfort of the shoe. Good pricing from Merlin as well.
Mr Cooper An outstanding pair of cycling shoes. My first pair of Sidis and I'm really impressed, the fit is amazing, I'm a size 10 and the 46 is spot on.
Jaakko Very, very comfortable road shoes that are also incredibly stiff. There is no flex at all and the foot is securely fitted with no extra movement or slipping. The toe box is roomy enough for normal feet so there's space for slight swelling and moving toes slightly. The Tecno system seems a bit complicated at first (compared to Boa) but it is intuitive and easy to use. It is also very durable and does not slip or stretch. The ventilation works well; so well that in cold weather shoe covers are a must. Most everything is replaceable so these shoes last a long time. The tongue bites into the top of foot at first; this will alleviate with time or you can slice the pre-cut openings to make the top of the tongue flare a bit. Note: they run small! Be prepared to go up one half or full size. I usually use EU43 but have to use EU44 in these.
Sertac ORCUN When moving from SPD pedals to roads pedals, I've chosen again Sidi's to use with them. Sidi Wire Carbon shoes are excellent quality elegant road shoes. Pro-grade materials, design and construction provide very comfortable fit.
Mr Merullo My 2nd pair of Sidi shoes. Excellent quality, fit, features and appearance. Merlin's pricing, free shipping and customer service is 2nd to none.
Mr Edmund Yu Extremely comfortable on feet and there is nothing to beat while having a 20% off! Sizing is prefect for Asians and particularly fond of all fine details Sidi has put in to this product line. Highly recommended to all roadies who want their ultimate road shoes with exceptional comfort level and beauty to attract everyone's attentions.
Mr chengaliz This is an excellent shoe by Sidi and it looks looks fantastico! (White-Black-Iride). The shoe sizing/fit is perfect for me. I am typically size 10.5 in footwear and have the 46. The closing mechanism is easy to use and adjust while riding. Best shoe I have owned!
