The Sidi Wire Carbon Vernice features pro-level technology for comfort and fit.
Double-Techno-3 Push System
The Double-Techno-3 Push System is inserted on a single base, this speeds up wearing and taking off shoes. The central mechanism creates a perfect tension balance between the shoe’s internal and external side. The symmetrical mechanism guarantees an excellent closure adapting on every instep. An innovative button added to the monofilament buckle, if pushed, lifts the buckle to facilitate the adjustment.
Soft Instep 3 Closure System
The SOFT INSTEP CLOSURE SYSTEM is a wide, anatomically curved strap combined with a soft, thermo-formed EVA pad that distributes pressure evenly over the instep area. The SOFT INSTEP CLOSURE SYSTEM is adjustable from both sides, to perfectly center the EVA pad over a high or low instep. The system eliminates the need for the High Instep Extender. The SOFT INSTEP CLOSURE SYSTEM is replaceable.
Vent Carbon Sole
The Vent Carbon Sole features a light and replaceable heelpad in polyurethane to improve walkability and a replaceable integrated toe pad/vent cover. The key benefits of the Vent Carbon Sole are not only superior power transfer, because of its light weight and stiffness, but also warm weather comfort. The VENT CARBON Sole is designed with an integrated vent and air channels for heat dissipation and air flow. The vent can be opened or closed for 4-season comfort. The VENT CARBON Sole is handmade exclusively of carbon fiber in a weave pattern oriented at opposing angles that maximize stiffness while allowing for a small degree of controlled flex in the toe area. This carefully designed flex biomechanically relieves stress on the plantar tendon and helps promote circulation. The VENT CARBON Sole features a standard 3-hole drilling pattern, printed 10 mm lateral and fore/aft cleat alignment scale as well as the Look Memory Eyelet for easy cleat alignment and replacement.
Adjustable Heel Retention Device
The Adjustable Heel Retention Device reinforces the top of the heel cup and improves the fit by closing the back of the shoe securely around the rider’s heel. The heel retention device tightens the top of the heel cup so that the heel doesn’t slide out during steep climbs or sprints. Each side of the heel can be adjusted independently, for a perfect fit. For a custom adjustment turn the screw towards the + sign to tighten the heel retention device and towards the – sign to open it. Light weight, easy to use, and replaceable.
Sidi Heel Cup
Reinforced cup that stabilizes and supports the heel. Anatomically shaped plastic, reduces heel slip and provides increased power transfer. Provides additional foot protection in the event of a crash.
Replaceable Heel Pad
For walkability, Sidi cycling shoes include a replaceable polyurethane heel pad.

Back in the early seventies, most cyclists just nailed cleats to the soles of their shoes. Of course that sounds crazy to people today. But it sounded crazy to Dino Signori way back then. Sidi’s Genius road shoe is one of the most popular shoes in the professional peloton and it's worn by folks with names like Rominger, Pontoni, and Luperin. But Signori's aspirations aren't limited to the road circuit. The challenge he’s set for himself and for Sidi is to provide every kind of cyclist with the best shoe for the job it road, off-road, cyclo-cross, or even triathlon. Granted, a lot of people might think trying to be the best at everything is crazy. But then again, a lot of people thought nailing cleats to the soles of their shoes was a good idea.
Great fitting shoe, comfortable, looks great. Over the first few times wering the shoe, hard to get foot into as opening system is narrow, upper section of shoe when new is tight but has became easier to put on when the upper loosens up.
Great fit and feel
I really like these. Especially after wearing my old shoes for a few days for comparison I really appreciated the fit the wire closures give.
fantastic shoes. one of the best. u will never regret to buy sidi.
Sidi Wire Carbon Vernice
Prefect fit for my size 43 (same size as my old Shimano R132). Very stiff carbon sole, but slightly heavy that my old Bont A-One. Outer skin polyurethane microfibre looks tough than Bont’s soft moldable skin.
Best Road Shoes
Definitely BEST road shoes from SIDI! wire features were good and tight, great power transfer over the pedals!
