Sidi's line of Dragon shoes has long been a favorite choice for riders across the world, and the latest iteration looks to continue the tradition with the much-loved Microfibre TechPro upper and four-pronged retention system that we've come to expect from Sidi's top-end shoes. The Men's Dragon 4 Mega Shoes feature 4mm of extra space across the forefoot compared to the standard version, with a higher instep and wider heel cup to better accommodate riders with a wider footprint.
At the back of the shoes, the molded plastic heel cup is reinforced with a Sidi's Heel Security System (HSS)—a rigid, adjustable plastic band that closes the shoe more securely around the back of your heel to anchor it in place around your Achilles no matter how much power you're pouring into the pedals. You'll get less heel slip, and it's a detail that allows you to cinch down the straps of your shoes less tightly—giving you more comfort, not just more security.
Sidi's Tecno 3 fit system starts with a BOA closure that allows you to micro-adjust strap pressure across the top of your foot. It's mated to a Soft Arch Compression Strap that spreads the upward stroke pedaling forces across the top of your foot. Another BOA closure spans the midfoot, with a dial that further allows you to control the pressure across the forefoot. Across the forefoot, a hook-and-loop strap is reinforced with integrated locking teeth to resist slippage. No other system so precisely and so gently provides a customized fit.
Sidi's fully replaceable SRS sole system is affixed to the outside of the carbon sole for times when dismounting is the only option. The Dragon 4 Mega Shoes can accept toe spikes as well. As with many Sidi shoes, all the small parts (SRS tread plates included) on the Dragon 4 Mega Shoes are fully replaceable. It's nice to know that you can wear your Sidis for a decade's worth of riding with confidence that when wear and tear (and accidental damage) happens, Sidi replacement parts will be there to nurse your shoes back to health.
