In 1960 SIDI began as a craftsman’s workshop manufacturing mountain sports footwear. In the 1970’s SIDI began specializing in cycling footwear and boots for off-road and on-road motorcycling. Dino Signori, founder of SIDI, has combined a passion for cycling with more 50 years of experience manufacturing innovative sporting footwear.
Thanks to this passion and a deep, intuitive knowledge of the business SIDI has become the market leader in cycling and motorcycle shoes. After half a decade, SIDI’s unique balance of tradition and innovation, style and comfort, make SIDIsporting footwear exceptional in the industry.
Highlighting the strong identification between the company and its founder, the Sidilogo started off as a union of DIno SIgnori’s initials. In 1974 the logo becomes the one we all know today with the addition of the vortex symbol representing strength and movement.
From a simple logo, the Sidi trademark has become one of the most recognizable and known brands in the business.
Tradition, values and commitment combined with an efficient international distribution network make Sidi a company that is present all over the globe.
Because of their guaranteed quality, SIDI footwear has been chosen by millions of athletes. Since 1960 SIDI has researched and developed highly technical footwear in order to achieve the maximum in reliability and comfort.
Combining innovation with a half-century of experience; the SIDI brand evokes a passion that goes beyond that of just a company.
Sidi Size Guide
*Customers switching to Sidi Shoes or from Sidi;s more than 5 years old, may not wear the same size. All Sidi's, except for winter shoes, are built on the same last, but differences in patterns and materials so keep this in mind when switching between Sidi models. Every Sidi Shoe (except triathlon models) from 2002 onwards is stamped with its size and last type (and M indicates Mega or W indicates women's), Usually on the tongue.
Standard Width is considered as a D width
Mega = EE shoe fit 4mm of extra space across the ball of the foot. If you have high-volume orthotics you may feel more comfortable in a mega shoe.
Women fits - "Women specific" shoes are a narrower and smaller version of the regular fit option. The heel and ankle areas have also been narrowed.
How do I know if its a good fit?
Some people have narrow heels, if you know this to be true we recommend getting a shoe with a heel retention device. This will allow the heel to be narrowed.
Is it too small? If you stand up with your shoes on and your toes are touching the front, your shoe is small. You don't want any toes touching the front of the shoe, this will create hot or numb toes on long rides. You want to be able to wiggle your toes a bit, but not feel like they are "sloshing around"
Tip* Try on your new Sidi Shoes with the cycling socks you normally wear
If the shoe doesn't fit? Don't worry, we offer a 1 free resize policy to make sure you are very comfortable on your bike
