on various online shops they mention that when buying Sidi cycling shoes that you buy a size up from your norm. due to Italian sizing..does anyone know if this is wise.. only asking seeing as i fancy getting a pair, but will have to resort to ebay, as the new ones are a bit outa my price league at the moment. thanks, in a advance.

Well, I'm definitely from the 'try before you buy' school of thought when it comes to shoes - partly cos I've suffered testing shoes I didn't try first.

Also it's particularly important if you haven't worn Sidi shoes in the past - length is one thing but there is also width to consider, plus the shape of the footbed etc etc

I love them, the best thing about them is that everything is replaceable, I have had my current pair for 7 years and in that time I've had 3 sets of the heel blocks, whereas the Nike Lance shoes I had before lasted one season before I wore through the carbon fibre heel and rendered the shoes useless.

Size is tricky, I am a 43 shoesize normally, but I take a 46 !!! in Sidis, although a 45Mega is probably the best fit. They took a while to stretch to fit my width, but in the end they are like slippers. Love them. Try some in a shop if you can but if you find the size fits and they are comfy, there is nothing better.

Sidi's are like slippers. Tight in width when you first buy but they stretch in no time and last forever. Mine are a size up. I wouldn't wear anything else now on and off road.

Look on sidicafe as there is a very useful brand comparison chart.
