Sidi Dominator Fit LTD Men's Shoes $259.95
Trail hunting attire.
When you demand a combination of the perfect fit and unrivaled longevity from a mountain shoe, there's arguably no finer option than Sidi's new Dominator Fit Shoes. And now, the latest LTD version only enhances their drool-worthiness. With new materials and classic construction, Sidi left no stone unturned when developing its new line. So why mess with a good thing? Because it can be camouflage, that's why. That means that, along with holding up to seasons of mountain biking or cross racing, it'll look even better when it's covered in dirt.
Sidi constructed the uppers of the Dominator Fit shoes from its new Technomicro material. Essentially, this is 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.
Sidi's hallmark Caliper Buckle has been incorporated for retention. This two-way ratchet allows for micro-adjusts of 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 (but important) detail that helps deliver unparalleled comfort.
At the outsole, Sidi demonstrated its vast knowledge of what you're actually using its shoes for. New to this year, the Dominator features a softer tread compound that's more suited for the sands and slick surfaces of cyclocross. Accordingly, your ability to grip variable surfaces is enhanced, which will result in faster times and less headaches. Additionally, Sidi included its Sidi Reinforcement Plate at the cleat connection point in order to increase durability across the outsole. However, Sidi states that this plate is not necessary for Shimano-style cleats if you're looking to shave grams.
The Sidi Dominator Fit LTD Mountain Bike Shoes are available in the color Camouflage and in whole and half sizes from 38.0 to 48.0.

Always been a fan of this model. If you have the foot for this shoe you'll see what I mean. Not the best walker, made for riding. Stiff sole so good energy transfer. The racket strap is a nice micro adjustment and a solid hold.
