The meeting of two legends

A Spanish-based team with a repertoire of talented riders, the foundations for team Movistar began in Irurtzun, Spain in 1976. Much like the legacy of Movistar, shoe manufacturer Diadora has been a player within the professional peloton for several decades. In 2014, they begin a three year partnership with the team. Riders will wear Diadora's latest cycling shoe, the Vortex Pro. This shoe was designed specifically for the professional cyclist and those riders wanting a comfortable shoe with maximum power transfer.

To begin with, the Vortex Pro is constructed using the Pro Road outsole. This is a full 3k carbon fiber sole with NET breathing technology. What this means is that the soles are constructed of a synthetic mesh and a breathable and impermeable membrane which increases the sole's transpiration capacity. This prevents moisture, mud, and other external elements from entering the shoes. In other words, your feet stay dry. Working in conjunction with the outsole is an EVA molded insole. Its waterproof materials and perforated construction also keep your feet dry, even in extreme weather conditions. That said, the shoe itself is not waterproof. You'll want to wear a shoe cover for downpours and snowy conditions.

Featuring a Race Fit, the uppers of the Vortex Pro are designed with Diadora's Suprell-Tech, Morpho AM Cage technology. This design keeps the shoe tight against your foot, without constricting circulation. Additionally, a molded heel support and a removable pad keep your heels from slipping when you pedal. The anti-slip heel pad was constructed of Duratech rubber for its grip as well as abrasion resistant properties. It is affixed with a single screw, and if desired, may be removed by lifting the insole. These features combine with the carbon sole to create a shoe that fits like a glove. Minimizing slippage and gaping, the Vortex Pro puts all the power where it belongs — in the pedals.

The Vortex would not be complete without a mention of its closure system. Using the 2 BOA Technology that has become popular in the last few years, these shoes are easily donned and tightened with a simple twist of the wrist. The cable system tightens against your foot and a slightly padded tongue prevents welts.

The Vortex Pro Movistar Cycling Shoes are compatible with 3-hole road cleats and weigh 269 grams. They are available in whole sizes 41.0 to 47.0 with half sizes 44.5 and 45.5 in the team colors of Movistar.

GREAT & COMFORTABLE SHOES

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 43.5

I bought these to replace a set of Specialized Sport Road Shoes. I love the fit, although they do run a little smaller so make sure to get at least a half number than you normally wear. The carbon fiber sole is very stiff, which translates into an optimal power transfer. The BOA system makes achieving the right fit very easy. The upper has lots of holes for ventilation as well as the sole, plus it has a beautiful design. What else can you ask for?

Love this shoes ....

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

How does the sizing on this compare to the SIDI? I wear a SIDI size 44 and was wondering if I should order a 44 as well in the Diadora.
Thanks,
Carlos

I also wear a 44 in SIDI and have a pair of Diadora vortex racer in a 44 .The Diadora seem to run a little on the large side.I think a 43.5 would have worked for me.Maybe order two different sizes just to be sure.

Thank you, Steven! Much appreciated!

Very attractive high quality shoe. I was pleasantly surprised by the roomy toe box for a racing shoe (width). Exceeding comfortable right out of the box with very stiff sole. Only thing that was disappointing, where the white graphic continues down onto the sole--chips very easily showing through black. Would have been perfect if they just left the carbon sole black. Awesome shoe though....
