Hello there;
I have just treated myself to a pair of Sidi genius 5 road shoes (for when my broken wrist mends), but I wanted to know if the standard shimano spd sl cleat bolts, 8mm I think will fit. I might be missing something but in the info book that came with the shoes it says use 10mm bolts, sorry but it's been a rather long day  7

mine work okay.. same set up as you got.

i suspect they mean depth/length as opposed to diameter, so 2mm not going to make a big difference.

Better safe than sorry indeed -

This is exactly the ambiguity / misunderstanding that led to the aviation incident where Captain Tim Lancaster ended up being blown out of his plane's front windscreen.

Thread diameter / length is worth getting right.
