Item # SID005G

Still dominating.

When Sidi finally tailored the beloved Dominator mountain shoes for 'cross, it hit on a seemingly perfect formula. You know the result, because chances are good that, like us, you've been riding them through mud, grass, sand, and — yes — across tarmac. Happily for those of us who enjoy riding in multiple disciplines but only want one pair of shoes, the formula at the heart of the Dominator Fit Shoes remains unchanged for the new year.

The uppers of the current Dominator Fit model are the same Technomicro material used in the previous iteration. It's a composite microfiber that's created from strands that are so fine that each one is less than one-thousandth the thickness of silk. These fibers act like a natural leather skin, only with the advantage of increased strength, soft texture, and light weight. Water-repellent, quick-drying, breathable, and permeable to water vapor, it's obviously ideal for shoe uppers. It's abrasion- and mildew-resistant, as well, making it far easier to clean than leather. Additionally, this material is resistant to stretching and deterioration from atmospheric agents. And to keep your feet from getting too warm, mesh inserts were added throughout the uppers.

The retention system is built around Sidi's hallmark Caliper Buckle, a two-way ratchet that lets you micro-adjust the strap pressure in order to ensure that the fit of your upper won't be too loose or too tight. It's mated to a Soft Arch Compression Strap that evenly spreads the upward stroke pedaling forces across the top of your foot. The buckle provides four-clicks per uptake along with half-click releases. Essentially, this means that you're able to precisely tension the pressure of the strap. No other system provides more of a gentle and precise customizable fit. You also get the precision of two High Security hook-and-loop straps for volume adjustability. Its padded tongue with fit "relievers" is one final small detail that helps deliver unparalleled comfort.

The outsole also remains unchanged with a return of the MTB Competition Sole. It's built of the same nylon composite of Sidi's road-specific Genius Fit, which hits the sweet spot of stiffness, weight, price, and durability. Unlike the Genius, the Dominator features treads for debris and muck clearance. The compound in the treads is also softer than a typical mountain shoe for the sands and slick surfaces of cyclocross. The sole also includes the option of adding toe spikes, which are sold separately, for additional traction. Sidi includes a Reinforcement Plate at the cleat connection point in order to increase durability across the outsole and accommodate dual-retention bar-style cleats. However, Sidi states that this plate is not necessary for Shimano-style cleats if you're looking to shave grams.

Great Fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 44 regular

This is my second pair of Sidi mountain bike shoes. I really like the fit and performance of these shoes and will buy another pair in 10 or so years. The adjustable caliper buckle tab on the inside of the shoe occasionally catches on the crank arm. The inner buckle tab seems to stick out a little too much and during rough terrain riding. The crank and shoe should smoothly slide against each other without catching under any condition.

Best Cycling Shoes... Period!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 43

I bought my first pair of Dominator 2's in 1999. Couldn't have imagined a better shoe. Honestly, can't remember exactly which Shimano pedal I was running then on my Landshark MB. Tried to beat the hell out of them for several years and then moved to egg beaters about 7 years ago. Perfect combo for me, and I run them on mountain and cross bikes. Commute on my cross bike too. Recently moved on the Dominator 5 Fit. Still the most comfortable shoe for me. I've watched many brands and styles come and go, but the Dominator remains the best all around shoe I have found. I must admit that I'm a Sidi fan, and these shoes fit me well. I also ride Sidi Genius road shoes, as well as Sidi Adventure Motorcycle Boots. The Sidi fit in 43's just seem perfect. Tough, comfortable, and just a perfect blend of stiffness and comfort. People complain about the cost, but I consider these a bargain at $249. Even better, I scored mine for $216 at my LBS!

Only cycling shoes for me

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 47

I tried on every pair of cycling shoe out there and Sidis are the only brand that work for my foot. The parts are super easy to replace when the proverbial s&$37 hits the fan and something breaks.

Made in Italy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Thats all one needs to know, made in Italy. I have a foot for these shoes and have loved them ever since I could afford to buy a pair. The ratchet and velcro closures are nice and easy. I put toe spikes on as well as a toe cover that is not made anymore, which helps make them last twice as long. The sole is very hard and is hard to wear out, but is a good stiffness for climbing. So they are slippy on rocks and roots still. I have tried other more expensive shoes in the line and always come back to these.

Mega fits perfectly

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 13 Mega

This is the best wide shoe I have experience in a 13 size. Sole insert is sort of flimsy, but remedied with a Spenco Athletic insert I use for other athletic shoes without compromising the toe box. At first I had to be aware of accidental ankle roll if not careful as I wear wide heel athletic shoes. otherwise I am a happy customer.

rookie review

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

My first ever pair of cleats (!) ... matched with Shimano M780 pedals. Nice set up and I have yet to fall over. Found the shoe to run slightly large. I wear a 13 and the sizing chart put me in a 48. If I had it to do over I would get a 47 with the expectation that they will stretch a bit over time. Sweet arrangement in any event!

Unanswered Question

I have a pair of Ergo 3s in a 45.5 that fit great. should I order the same size in these dominators? I where a 10.5 E dress shoe

Excellent do-it-all shoe for wide feet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased my first pair of Dominators about 15 years ago for mountain biking and piloting a tandem bike. They quickly went from this intended purpose to being used anytime or anywhere I rode, dirt or pavement. When I retired the shoes in completely functional shape they literally had tens of thousands of on and off road miles under them. I just finally had to stop wearing them because they had become too narrow to wear comfortably due to foot changes we all have in the passing years. A couple years ago I purchased a pair of Sidi Five Mega road shoes and they were easily the most comfortable cycling shoe I'd ever worn. I previously reviewed these shoes on this website. However, after wearing the Dominator for all types of riding for so long I didn't like the off the bike feel of the Fives and also wasn't able to adjust SPD-SL cleats far enough rearward to be optimal. I recently purchased a pair of the Dominator Fit Mega and love the shoes. They are every bit as comfortable as the Five Mega (they are essentially the same shoe). Like the Fives the Dominator Mega shoes are very wide which allows a comfortable fit for wide feet and also allows the use of high quality footbeds without compromising space in the toe box. Stiffness - Sidi has definitely improved the stiffness of the soles both lengthwise and rotationally from the first pair I owned. On the bike the Dominators feel every bit as stiff as the carbon soled Fives. Weight - I wear a size 42 and the difference in weight between the pairs of shoes is exactly 100 grams. My old pair of Dominators? Considering they've gone with me on so many incredible rides over the years including Independence Pass, Trail Ridge Road, Tour of the Unknown Coast and numerous other century rides I think I'll just retire them to the back of the closet.
