As always, great crowds and lots of new trends in the world of two wheels
This year Eurobike was held in Friedrichshafen, Germany, from August 30th to September 2nd. The number one trade fair in the world has become a fantastic show offering sector specialists, the greater public and cycling fans a 360° view of what’s going on in the world of two wheels, including innovations, new products and new trends.
Sidiis a world leader in the sector of cycling shoes, so naturally we couldn’t miss it. At the stand for Sidi’s German distributor visitors could get their hands on and get a closer look at all the new items and top-of-the-line models for 2018 offered by the company from Maser (Treviso).

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
