Closeouts. The updated Sidi Genius 5 road cycling shoe is always a smart decision. With a super-stiff Millennium III outsole, these shoes are ready to transfer power to the pedals during hard-charging sprints and uphill climbs.

I got these shoes recently, and have taken them out on two long rides. Easy to get on and off, good-looking and comfortable too. I bought the men's size 40 shoes, and I am a women's 8.5. They fit perfectly.

female, US size 8/8.5, 40 in this shoe is a perfect fit. the sole is very rigid, much to my liking. there is no extra padding of any kind, beware. very straight froward. buckles adjust well, Velcro is in the right place. took about 4 hours on a trainer to break the shoes in, feels great. i wear these shoes with Brooks race day below ankle socks, they have extra padding around ankle. shoes performed well on 40-60 mile rides, adjusted well to temperature 40-60F. i have not tested these shoes in temperature above 60F, in general i ride in very light Mavics, however, this shoes might do well all year around. remains to be tested.

Love this shoe. I wear an 8.5 women's, and ordered these in 41 and they fit perfectly! They look really nice too, I normally see these in black, but the silver is a much nicer color. The strap release are the ones you have to squeeze, not the kind you pull up, which can be a little annoying. But other than that, it's great. And awesome price at STP once again!

you can't beat this shoe at this price. Who cares if its a dicontinued color?! With a discount i had these delievered for [$], and the are the same as all my other sidi products - awesome. Order a half size bigger than you would wear in any other cycling shoe. Got wide feet? look for ones labled "mega"

I already own the Sidi 5 Pro with the cleated sole which are a great shoe for touring, but have a heavier sole and are constructed from a thicker leather. These shoes have the carbon fiber millenium III sole which improve power transfer a great deal in the hills and are noticeably lighter. Ratcheting system to control fit works well and can be adjusted mid-ride. A great value at about $165., I paid $280 for my SIDI cleated touring shoes at full retail so this represents a great value. These shoes are made in Romania, BTW.
Best Uses: Climbing, Long-distance riding

I've worn these for about two months now and after 600 miles I still love them. Very comfortable. I have heard that Sidi run narrow, so I apparently have a narrow foot as they fit me well. I like the latching mechanism. The rubber heel is replaceable and comfortable to walk in. I generally wear clip covers anyway. Best cycling shoe I've ever owned.
Best Uses: Everyday riding, Long-distance riding

This shoe is awesome, and at a cheap price with the 15% discount. This my first cycling shoes and I love it. Of course, I tried it out at the store before I bought it, but this was the only place I could find this color. This fits me perfect, because I have narrow feet, so these Italian made shoes are perfect for that. You can't beat the price here[...]
