SIDI WOMEN'S SHOES - ROAD
We understand that fluorescence is an acquired taste, and luckily, Sidi does, too. The brand new Sidi Moon Women's Shoes still provide provide a feminine flair without the retina grabbing color treatment of their male counterparts. Basically, you're only finding this Silver shimmer here. And aside from aesthetics, the Moon shoes shatter the idea that you need to spend a month's rent to get into a pair of quality Italian cycling shoes. With a stiff carbon composite sole and an anatomically designed upper, the Moon shoes offer everything that you want from a handcrafted shoe.
Don't forget that your shoes serve a specific purpose when you're on the bike -- the transmission of power from your legs to the drivetrain. And in this purpose, rigidity is key. That's why Sidi uses a multi-step system to ensure that your power output receives a minimal amount of dissipation through the interaction of the shoe and the pedal. So, to start, the sole of the Moon shoes were made to be both stiff and durable. Using the newest iteration of the Millennium series, the Millennium 3 sole differs from its predecessors in its carbon infused construction. Whereas prior generations relied on a reinforced nylon matrix, the Millennium 3 infuses this matrix with carbon fiber. This process dramatically improves the overall stiffness of the shoe, while adding an enhanced level of durability. In fact, Sidi estimates that the new material is less susceptible to temperature extremes and wear, and accordingly, the soles are predicted to retain their rigidity levels over multiple seasons of use. Additionally, Sidi also included a replaceable heel pad for the inevitable walks from the street to the espresso counter.
For a secure fit, Sidi used a three strap, Velcro closure system. This allows full adjustability that will stand the test of time. Sidi also added its signature heel cup to keep the foot in the perfect position on hard up strokes and while climbing out of the saddle. For comfort, the body of the shoe has been made from a synthetic leather. This material provides a firm grip on the foot, thoroughly fulfilling its duty as a strong interface between your foot and the sole. Even better, the material is extremely durable, as it doesn't succumb to the variable forces and bending that would normally wrinkle the shape of the uppers. Instead, the intended shape of the shoe remains unscathed over the years. It also creates a secure attachment for one of the most important parts of the Moon -- its ventilation mesh. Much of the shoe body receives this nylon mesh in order to keep the internal temperature of the Moon consistently low and comfortable.
The Moon is compatible with three hole cycling cleats. And for easy adjustment, the sole features a molded, 10mm horizontal and vertical cleat alignment scale. This scale also offers the Look Memory Eyelet.
The Sidi Moon Women's Shoes are available in the color Silver and in odd and even sizes from 36.0 to 43.0.
