Protect your investment, and your butt.

One very nice aspect of Sidi shoes is that they are designed with longevity in mind. Of course, their choice of materials in the uppers of their cycling shoes is always top-notch. And as a complement, the heel pads on the soles of the shoes are replaceable should they get worn down. They're inexpensive and easily replaced. Save your soles!

Sidi's stock heel pads are tough enough. But not unlike your cleats, excessive walking in your cycling shoes can eventually takes its toll on them. There are three different replacement heel pads available. The Millenium 2, Millenium 3 and the Carbon Composite sole, such as the '09 Genius 5.5 or the '09 Genius 5 Pro. You'll look for a rivet on the sole of your shoe and a corresponding notch in the heel pad. One set comes with 2 pads and 2 screws.

Note: We are currently out of stock on the Millenium 3 and Carbon Composite heel pad replacements.

Don't wait until its to late

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you have a set of sidi's with the Millenium 3 sole get a set of these now and check your shoes regularly. I waited until it was obvious to order. by the time I replaced mine I had to carve the old ones apart with a knife to get to the screw with a set of pliers as the phillips head of the screw was damaged beyond use.

Being replaceable they will keep your shoes usefull for a long time.

Are the heal pads you currently have in...

Are the heal pads you currently have in stock considered "universal"? My shoe are over 7 years old so I would just cut off the nubs which is fine.

Responded on

These are not meant to be universal as they are for certain sole specifics. It is up to you if you would like to try to make them work on an older shoe, but they are not designed to fit every SIDI shoe in their line.

Let us know if you have any additional questions!


I need the heel replacement pads for older...

I need the heel replacement pads for older Genius 5 shoes that are rounded at the top in the gray section (no notch). Do you have these? If not, do you know where I can get them? Thanks!

Hi Kat,

Unfortunately, we're no longer carrying the old-style heel pads. Before your request, we had not had an order for those pads in several months.

Heel cap covers

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These heel cap covers for the Sidi Bicycling Shoes are so important to have on the shoes. Surprisingly, these heel caps wear quickly and if not changed when needed, the little screw that is used to attach the rubber heel cap to the shoe will be rubbed down and will become quite difficult to remove. The use of full heel cap covers makes for an easier walk when wearing bicycling shoes and they also offer more support for one's feet.

Hi Can you let me know what heel pads will suit the Sidi Ergo 2 carbon soles

Responded on

So sorry that I did not see your question until now! The standard heel pads that are sold by Sidi will work for your shoes. Sidi sells two kinds of heel pads, one with two points on the pad that fits into corresponding holes on the shoe and heel pads that do not have the two points. Check your shoe to see if you have tiny holes in them where the heel pad is attached and then decide for yourself!

Sorry, re: replacement heel pad - my Sidi's...

Sorry, re: replacement heel pad - my Sidi's are Genius 5 Pro Carb, not "Genesis". There is a rivet in the back of the sole, so I'm assuming I need the Millenium 3. The pictures of the products in you calendar are not clear enough to confirm which one is notched out.

I need to purchase replacement heel pads for the Genesis Pro Carb shoe. Which ones do I need?

I'm not sure which rubber heel pad I need.....My Sidi's are red with silver heel, top of heel is red and white "V" design.

Responded on

millenium 2 sole is for shoes with no rivet at the back of the sole, millenium 3 is for shoes with a rivet at the back of the sole (the millenium 3 is the one with the notch in the plastic where it has the logo-in the same place as the notch in the rubber-to avoid hitting the rivet, millenium 2 has no notch cut out). The plugs/nubs in the back are meant if you have plug holes in your soles, some have two, some have one, some don't have any. If you don't have plug holes you just clip off the plastic plug(s). Both come with the two plastic plugs/nubs. Basically you get the same ones you already have by comparing to the pictures.

Will these fit my Diadora road cycling...

Will these fit my Diadora road cycling shoes.Is it one size fits all ?

Responded on

As long as the heel pads on your particular pair of shoes if replaceable then yes these Sidi Rubber heel pads should work.

Best Answer Responded on

No, these will not fit you Diadora's. Only some Diadora's have removable heel pads and those that do are screwed on from the sole side of the shoe. You will need to find a Diadora replacement.
