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.
