The Sidi Wire Carbon Vernice shoe is a top of the range road cycling shoe packed full of Sidi’s highest-level technology and is made using cutting-edge manufacturing techniques combined with state of the art materials. Featuring a super-stiff Vent Carbon Sole the Vernice provides superior power transfer through to the pedals while the soles include integrated, adjustable vents to help with heat dissipation during the hotter months of the year and feature a standard 3-hole drilling pattern that is compatible with the majority of pedal systems including the Shimano SPD-SL and the Look Keo. Off the bike an anti-slip polyurethane toe and replaceable heel inserts make walking easier and safer.
The Sidi Wire Carbon Vernice road shoe upper is made from a light, water-repellent Techpro microfibre with an anti-mold treatment so your shoes will stay fresher for longer while the replaceable soft instep closure system distributes pressure evenly over the instep area providing additional support. Sidi’s Techno-3 push dials quickly seals the shoe around your foot for an unrivalled fit is completely non-binding giving a light, easy-adjust action making fine adjustments on-the-fly easier than ever before. With an adjustable heel retention device that reinforces the top of the heel cup the Sidi Wire Carbon Vernice shoes allow you to adjust the interface between your foot and the shoe’s heel eliminating the potential for heel lift during those out of the saddle efforts.

So far this is the best bike shoes I have and very happy with it.
Maybe the best road cycling shoe available. Available in many sizes and full of technical details, it is almost impossible not to have a great fit. The quality of construction and materials is at the top. A quality, made in Italy product that will last for many seasons. Just be careful with the fit, one usually need half to one size bigger than other brands (I am 44 Gaerne and 45 Sidi).
I purchased these shoes in black/fluro orange, they look amazing! I would definitely recommend going up one UK size to get the correct fit.
The quality and finish is excellent.
Merlin cycles service is second to none, there prices extremely competitive, would definitely recommend Merlin cycles 10/10
Great shoes. Fit like a glove. Size chart is true to cross reference measured length in cm or inches. Specialized EU44.5 translates to EU45 in Sidi.

Very quick delivery turnaround time overseas. Surprised that it arrived earlier than expected. Kudos to Merlin!
On the other hand, the SIDIS lives up to its name. Very stiff carbon soles and upper mesh. I initially had some pain points on my upper feet due to the stiff upper mesh of the shoes. Took a couple of rides and I'm loving the shoes! The Tecno 3 Push System is very rider friendly and is easily adjustable on the go. Overall 5/5 stars.
Just received this pair yesterday and went out for a 70k ride. Comfortable, rigid, and a very good fitting shoe.
I wear EU45 - 45,5 in regular shoes and EU46,5 is a perfect fit for this one.
The Shoes fit true to the sizing chart but almost one euro size smaller than shimano shoes that I had. Very comfortable right out of the box. Lots of great adjustments.
Great shoes really comfortable, just note the size differences for Sidi and go up a size or two. Use the measuring guide and it comes out well.
Fantastic race shoes with great comfort, great adjustment and an extremely stiff sole. I am a 46 in Northwave and use a 47 in Sidi.
Highly adjustable and comfortable
Great shoe first time I have chosen Sidi but the shoe fit is spot on, I am a size 10 and chose the 45.5 great adjustment and fits great, I bought the orange and black however the orange is not as is shown, this is more Flo orange but I am pleased with my shoes.

Siempre habia tenido ganas de tener unas Sidi.
Venia de unas Mavic 42 2/3 y en estas he tenido que cojer un 44.
El envio rapido como siempre en Merlin
Incredible shoes, these are my second set of cycling shoes, my first being a £80 pair of Fizik's. Wow these are so superior! Going to a full carbon sole makes a major difference, and the sheer adjustability of the Sidi's is astounding.
The Sidi Wire Carbon shoes are amazing! These are my first SIdi shoes, and just as I had heard, the fit is second to none. I have fairly long and very narrow/low volume feet, so I have struggled in the past to get enough in the way of adjustment. The upper is of great quality, and the fit seems almost molded around my foot. Couple that with a dial in the front to tighten down on my narrow toe box, and a very comfortable strap and dial across the top that nestles your arch and mid-foot into the shoe. The Sidi outsole seems narrower than many other brands I've used, so the upper does not need to be snugged in nearly as much as with other brands in the forefoot. The result is the most comfortable and best fitting shoes I have ever used. My Fizik R! shoes from last year are definitely lighter, but the comfort does not compare! Definitely a great purchase!
Just for reference, I wear a 44.5 in Fizik and the Sidi 45.5 fits perfectly for length.
Really loved this shoe. Not the lightest around but it's comfortable and incredibly stiff.
The original and still the best shoes. Unrivaled craftsmanship from Italy, and they just fit your feet like a glove.
Sidi shoes are always comfortable and these are no exception. This time I ordered half a size larger as I now require an orthotic insert. The half size has extra room around the toe box and allows the insert to fit with comfort. Otherwise the size length seems the same.
These SIDI shoes are the best! I have a narrow foot so they fit me perfectly. And the price from Merlin Cycles was the best around and Shipping was fast. I'm very happy with these shoes.
Best cycling shoe I have ever had. I have owned before Shimano, Diadora, and more but the Sidi is in another league.
First time trying out SIDI shoes and I am absolutely sold. Switched from Specialized to SIDI and never regretted since. Well fitted and very comfortable throughout the ride. Did not compromise on the performance of the shoes as well. Definitely worth the buy.
I`ve been using Sidi shoes for 25 years, and I can say for sure that this was the best product I ever bought!
