Scoopwrote a review of Sidi Wire Push Speedplay Cycling Shoe - Men's on March 12, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Probably the stiffest sole of any shoe I’ve used. Definitely designed for maximum power transmission. So think twice if you’re looking for an everyday shoe for long, relatively sedate rides. Closure system provided for infinite adjustment. No hotspots or numbness, even when cranked right down. Could be a tad wider up front, to accommodate my wide forefeet, but this doesn’t pose a huge problem, by any means. As with other SIDIs, it took a couple hundred km of break-in time until they were just right. This was especially true for the tongue, the top of which seriously cut into the upper/talus area. I adjusted the top strap length, snipped the tongue as per SIDI’s instructions, which helped a bit. But only more revs cured it completely. Odd, since this model seems nearly identical to my trouble-free Geniuses, in most respects. Lastly, the retention dials are not only comfortable but amazingly robust, too. I prefer them over BOAs, which tend to slip at times. Operating the SIDIs’ dials is a bit more complicated and a bit more time consuming, especially on the fly, but definitely worth it. If only each side turned oppositionally to the other. Strange and counterintuitive, in that they both ratchet in the same direction. No dealbreaker whatsoever. Highly recommmended, particularly if you’re running Speedplays and are considering a standard version. I have tried it both ways, with a variety of brands. It does make a difference.
