Description

Not-so-little brothers.

A different closure system, a different look, and a lower price — those are the only notable differences between the Sidi Genius 6.6 Vent Road Cycling Shoes and the genius' big brother, the top-shelf Sidi Wire shoes. Considering the amazing comfort and features you get, we call that a pretty great deal.

Hailed as Mr. Basso's favorite shoes, the Genius 6.6 features a more traditional exterior design than the Wire. This is most apparent when examining the shoes' most predominant aesthetic features, the closure system. In lieu of the Wire's Techno 3 buckle system, the 6.6 opts for Sidi's tried-and-true, two-way ratcheting Caliper Buckle. Assuredly, you've seen the Caliper Buckle imitated by lesser shoemakers, however, this design was invented by Sidi decades ago. The system allows for incremental adjustments, either pre-ride or on-the-fly, and it's further complemented by Sidi's take on two hook-and-loop straps. Not your standard Velcro, these two volume-controlling straps feature Sidi's patented High Security Velcro. So, you'll never experience any fraying, wear, or loosening of the Velcro over any period of time. Together, as a system, the three-point closure system ensures that you get the perfect fit every single time that you buckle up for a ride. And for those who prefer as snug a fit as possible, the shoe's tongue and instep strap have both been padded generously to allow for supreme comfort with tight buckles.

As we stated, the Genius 6.6 shares the same sole as the Wire. Based off of the Ergo 3, the 6.6 sole features the superlative vented carbon fiber. It shares the same construction method that Sidi developed with its Carbon Lite sole, yet Sidi has removed around 38 grams in the process. Even with the weight savings, you'll get the same kind of stiffness and razor sharp power transfer you've grown to expect from Sidi. And like Garneau's Ergo Air system, the vent inlet is at the toe. However, Sidi's system can be opened or closed depending on the temperature and your preferences. This, you can do on the bike if necessary. The airflow moves underneath and through the insole to cool your feet in sweltering summer temperatures.

Also returning from previous top-shelf offerings is Sidi's vastly improved Heel Security System (or HSS) to keep your foot positively planted in the shoe. By means of a small Allen key, it's an adjustable, rigid composite band that closes the shoe more securely over your heel to anchor it in place around your Achilles. So, no matter how much power you're pouring into the pedals, your heel will stay in place inside the shoe. It's a detail that allows you to cinch down the straps of your shoes less tightly — giving you more comfort along with more security.

With a degree of engineered flex in the Vent Carbon Sole, and a secure and slip-free heel, you won't have to worry about hot spots. And you especially don't have to worry about heat in the rest of your feet, either. With the Genius' combination of Lorica microfiber, ballistic mesh, and new Comfort Fit insoles, you'll receive comfort, a perfect fit, ample ventilation, and season-after-season durability.
