Wire Push Cycling Shoe
For over 40 years now, Sidi has been the tip of the spear in cycling innovation, with every new, worthwhile development bearing the Italian tricolor and Sidi's signature swirl logo. With the new Wire Push Shoes, the Italian legend is pushing the industry further into the future with a more refined take on the low-profile, clean-lined, and race-proven Wire design so that you can keep pushing yourself.
The Wire Push Shoes ride securely with Sidi's newly improved Tecno 3 Push fastener. Like its predecessor, the Tecno-3 Push system involves two ratcheting dials, Sidi's proprietary, non-stretch wire, and a customizable fit at the instep and forefoot. The Push in the shoes' title refers to the incorporation of a tempting little red button on the buckles' faces that, when temptation overcomes restraint, releases the ratchet's lever for quick adjustment, saving you the onerous task of flipping the lever up yourself. At ride's end, pinching two release buttons on either side of the dial loosens the wire. As with all of Sidi's fastening hardware, you can easily fiddle with the Tecno 3 Push buckles in the saddle.
The new model year of Wire shoes sees a return of Sidi's superlative vented carbon fiber sole. It shares the same construction method that Sidi developed with its Carbon Lite sole, yet it relegates the "Lite" model to the heavy bin by losing an additional 38 grams in the process. The weight loss may be due to the negative space of the vents, which shuttle cooling air into interior channels. The vent can be opened or closed depending on the temperature and your preferences — even in the middle of a ride.
Despite the weight savings and ventilation, the Wire Push soles have the same stiffness and confident power transfer you've grown to expect from Sidi, and they've also got a bit of forgiving flex for your toes while you're awkwardly clop-clopping around on the coffee shop's stained concrete floor during your mid-ride espresso break.
Also returning from previous top-shelf offerings is Sidi's improved Heel Security System (or HSS), which keeps your foot positively planted in the shoe. It involves a rigid, composite band that can be tightened or loosened with an allen key to adjust the amount of play you allow your heels. The shoe's tongue and instep strap have both been padded generously to allow for supreme comfort with tight buckles. The upper is made from perforated Lorica, a synthetic microfiber that has become a staple of our cycling shoe line-up since it became a signature component of Sidi's venerable shoes. Finally, all of the buckles, wires, outsole lugs, and heel retention devices are fully replaceable.

- I've put it through the wringer
This is my 2nd pair of Sidis. Purchased in 2017 and just now leaving a review! I have narrow feet and they fit better than most. The white color gets dirty looking frequently, but is pretty easy to clean. No complaints re: durability. I've probably put 12K+ miles on them and haven't even replaced the toe or heel pads yet (although probably should soon).
