Description

Why We Like The Wire 2 Carbon Cycling Shoe

The Wire was Sidi's top shoe for a number of years until the relatively recent release of their range-topping Shot. Now, the Wire sees some updates that improve fit and comfort while giving the shoe a sharp new look. Like the Shot, the Wire 2 Carbon Cycling Shoe has the lower dial relocated to the top of the tongue for a more comfortable fit with equal tension across the whole foot. The instep strap is a bit narrower too, with improved flexibility and the addition of padded edges to further improve comfort.

  • Premium road shoe with Sidi's renowned fit and workmanship
  • Lower dial relocated to the tongue for better fit and comfort
  • Instep strap is narrower and adds padding to further improve comfort
  • Full carbon fiber sole for uncompromising power transfer and low weight
  • Sole vents create airflow while slight flex maintains comfort
  • Techpro microfiber upper blends durability and breathability
  • Tecno 3 closure system allows a wide range of adjustability
  • Sidi shoes continue to lead the way in style, fit, and longevity

Years ago, I splurged on a pair of Sidi Genius 4 shoes, after having several pairs of other brands. They were something of a revelation. Even then, most other shoes in their price category had carbon soles and flashier uppers. However, the Sidis just worked, and worked for about a decade, through a couple of different bikes and pedal systems, as well as several periods of inactivity. Their Lorica uppers were comfortable from the start and wore like iron. I replaced the heels a couple of times, as well as one of the ratcheting buckles. When I got back on the bike after a layoff a couple of years ago, I realized that my trusty old Genius 4s had seen better days and decided to get a new pair of shoes. I bought a pair of one down from the top Shimano road shoes on sale. The Shimanos were fine. They were light, and probably stiffer than the old Sidis; they came with nice insoles and a couple of different arch inserts and the ability to heat mold to your foot. I didn't have any real complaints, other than an occasional numbness in my left foot. However, after less than two years, the Shimanos were ready to pack it in. The heel pad was cracking on both shoes and delaminating from the heel counter (which itself was peeling). Of course, neither of those are replaceable, so I looked to getting new shoes. As a splurge, I got these Sidi Wire 2s for Christmas. At first, I thought I might have made a mistake. They were much stiffer all around than I recall my old Genius 4s. The new upper "Techpro" materials didn't feel as comfy as the older Lorica. However, after a week of riding (about 120 miles over four rides) they were starting to feel like the Genius 4s I remembered and loved. About 600 miles in now, and they fit like a glove. I don't remember the Genius 4s having a break in period at all, but these definitely do. They also appear to be the best-made cycling shoes I've had, both in terms of materials and build quality. No sloppy stitching here! I chose these over the Shot (the Shot 2 wasn't out yet) primarily because my relatively narrow, low volume foot likes the way the instep closure strap across the top of the shoe locks in my foot. I figured if they last as long as my old Genius 4s, the extra money paid (over the current Genius 10 or Ergo 5) is well worth it for a top of the line product. They are stiff, comfy, and secure, and, IMHO, manage to look both "high-tech" and "classic" at the same time! A word on sizing -- both these and my Genius 4s are/were 45. Sizing seems pretty similar to my recollection of the Genius 4, with perhaps a bit more height in the very front of the toebox. For reference, my Shimano shoes are a 44.5. I wear a size 11 Nike or Brooks running shoe, and a size 10 dress shoe (Alden).

Amazing quality. Have been wearing SIDI's for years and just wanted a new pair of shoes with the new bike. As others have mentioned, the tongue is not the most comfortable as soon as you slip these on your feet. I manually softened the tongue and rode them on my trainer. After a couple of rides, I tested them outdoors on a ride and I found that they did not bother me at all, definitely did not dig in or hurt. I did replace the insoles with the Specialized BG insoles and found that it also made a difference in comfort over the stock insoles. Several rides now and I've found these shoe to be amazingly comfortable.

This is my 4th pair of SIDI over the last 15+ years and I'm sorry to say this relationship needs to be over. A couple of years ago I bought a pair of Shot and never really loved them. those ratchets sitting on top of the shoes slightly bothered the top of my right foot, but it was something i could live with + it got a little better w time. When i bought the Wire 2 I had a lot of hopes since the top ratchet was moved to the side. Well, what a disaster. Like two other guys suggested they hurt your ankles a lot! Wore them twice on a 3 hr ride, but there comes a point when you need to walk out of a toxic relationship. Good bye SIDI. Cycling is painful enough w/o need for uncomfortable shoes. And BTW, they run big... so big that I thought they send me the "wide" size. Question is, what shoes am I going to get next...??

Similar to Douglas S, I have been using the shoes for about 2 weeks now, and the tongue and in-step closure are digging into the front of both ankles enough to cause pain and tenderness while riding. I’m told by several others this pain goes away as the tongue gets software with use, so I’m willing to ride it out. Funny this has never been an issue with my previous Sidi’s which I’ve used for 11 years. Excepting this, the carbon sole is plenty stiff and has reduced the pain in my arches. And the shoes look super nice and are comfortable otherwise. Roll forward 2 months, and I really love the shoes. The pain in the ankles has gone away, as the shoe has become softer. It just needed to be worn a little. The power transfer is superb with the carbon soles. The shoes are comfortable and look awesome. I am upgrading my review from 3 to 5 stars. The only thing that sidi can work on is improving the cable tightening system which is less intuitive than the boa dials on my fiziks.

I have 3 pairs of Sidi's all 43.5 and fit great. These are simply too small by .5 to 1 size. Recommend going for at least half size up. By the time I received them there were no 44.0 left so will have to go without. Seemed a nice shoe not sure if they equate to the price tag but didn't get the chance to try them.

Shoes are great, except...

The shoes fit really well, and are very comfortable for long rides with one exception. The center of the tongue and/or instep strap presses into the front of my ankle at the bottom of the stroke. This causes bruising and pain that lasts for days, much worse on one foot vs the other. If I could figure out how to make this not happen, the shoes would get 5 stars.

Hi Doug - look on the Sidi instructions or website - you can cut the tongue down. I have some Ergos and had the same problem. Though I know I could cut the tongue down, I just kept wearing them. Now they do not bother me.

Doug and Perry, wanted to follow up on this as I am experiencing similar pain in the front of my ankles. I tried cutting the tongue, but doesn’t help. Was thinking that the pain is due to a combination of the in-step closure system and the inside corner where the closure system meets the actual side of the shoe. Did the pain eventually go away? Any other suggestions, as the shoe looks and feels great otherwise.

I had been using a basic Giro shoe with a flexible sole you can bend by hand for years (injected nylon sole). Riding a 2013 Giant Propel Advanced SL. I feel like I have a shoe with a level of performance now that is matched well to the bike. This purchase was my third attempt on this site to find an upgrade that fit me well and locked down firmly. They were great with the two returns I made, and finally these came and fit perfectly right away. Sidi recommended a full euro size up, which was too big, I went up a half size and it was perfect. I like the tecno 3 locks for the top and forefoot a lot, better than any other fastening system I've tried. They are not hard to adjust while riding, even with a full finger glove. I cranked a few turns on the heel retention too, the shoes fit very firmly with no pain. The soles are incredibly stiff and it made pedaling seem easier too. These dont budge when attempting to bend it. My ride today felt a lot better with these shoes and I'm excited to go out again. They are expensive, but almost all the parts are replaceable, including the rubber toe piece which I wear down a lot. I want the most out of my rides and this shoe helped step that up for me, I'd absolutely recommend it.

The fit on these shoes is classic SIDI. It's a SMIDGE tighter on the whole and the toebox than my 2011 Sidi Dominator 5 MTB style shoes, but on the whole trying them on one after the other its barely noticeable.. The tecno 3 system is awesome, puttting them on and taking them off is a snap and I love the strap across the top paired with the wires for the main area fit wise. Though I do wish you could microadjust tighter and not just loser; it really wasnt an issue.. Usually as a i ride I end up needing to tighten a bit on my old shoes, but that wasnt the case with these.. just supremely comfortable. My very first ride with them was a 50 mile trek with 2000 ft of climbing, and having suffered from achilles injuries on both sides i loved the adjustable heel retention which i tightened a smidge and didnt agitate my achilles area at all. I love the stiffness of the sole and the venting. It's just enough for me and I'm someone who's always warm and the ride went from 70F to 94F as the day went on.. one of my vents would not open so they are exchanging them out for me which shoes the commitment to customer service IMHO.

Really disappointed. I had previously owned a pair of sidi wire shoes, which I’ve loved and put upwards of 10,000 miles on. When it came time to purchase a new pair, I didn’t think twice about opting for another pair of the latest Sidi wire shoes. This time, i took the opportunity to try the lates technology, in the form of the “Wire 2.” The Wire 2 has relocated the BOA dials to be directly on top of the show, which precludes the wearer from being able to tighten the shoe any further than the width of the BOA dial, which leaves the shoes a bit too loose for my taste, or from what I have been accustomed with my previous shoe. Additionally, I had taken for granted that the sizing from one Sidi shoe to the next would be identical, and this simply has not been the case. The Wire 2 seems to run at least a size or possibly two sizes larger than my previous shoe. I had the shoes for more than 30 days before I rode with them, and thus, they are no longer returnable. So, I am unfortunately stuck with a pair of $400 shoes that are too big, despite being marked as a new incarnation of the same model I had previously owned. My advice to prospective buyers would be to absolutely try your shoes on in the home before mounting cleats or using outside. You might also consider ordering your traditional size in addition to a size down, for comparison’s sake, and then returning one or both if you are not satisfied.

Funny they fit me just fine in 42.0 just like my 2011 Sidi Dominator 5 shoes did. Also they arent BOA dials, and only ONE is on top of the shoe. one is on the side. Not really the shoes fault you waited more than 30 days to try them on.

Check eBay Assos me now has several choices at better prices

I have to agree that the fit on these is a huge departure from previous (late model Wire and Air) versions. I have a shoe problem and have 7 or 8 pairs of Sidis. I can honestly say this one is truly big. I ended up resolving the size issue with a large volume insert... not really an ideal solution, but at least I can wear them. If I get another pair of these in a different color, I will be sizing down.
