Nathan Simpsonwrote a review of Sidi Dimaro Cycling Shoe - Men's on November 18, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I got a pair of these to try on and my initial impression is - a truly perfect fit as expected from Sidi - I am about a US 9.5 and the 43's fit perfect - better in fact than any Giro or Five Tens that I currently own. (Giro chamber and Impact pros eaten by the dog...). if I was in the market of replacing a pair of clip-in style shoes these are about as perfect as I could dream of. If you are looking for clip-in shoes stop reading this and buy them or call your gearhead to get some on backorder! Easy in and out, great lace cover and I like the looks. the gaiter is a shop divider (disgusting to some gearheads - haha) but in person, it is comfortable and would definitely keep out dust and debris.
My criticism is: this is not a flat or clip-in shoe as advertised. if you want a true flat shoe you will have to look elsewhere - sadly. the cleat cover is more durable than most but I see it becoming damaged under a lot of riding with flat pedals. it is rubber and does not key into the sole in any way as it is just held into the shoe by the cleat screws.
Sidi please make this exact shoe in a dedicated flat shoe!
