The Shot from Sidi is a top drawer shoe option for road riders - and if it’s good enough for three times Tour de France winner Chris Froome, we’re persuaded to think that it’s good enough for us!
The Shot has all the features you would expect to see on a high end Sidi shoe, like a high quality carbon sole with a printed cleat alignment guide, water repellent microfibre upper, customisable fit and replaceable parts for enhanced durability to name but a few - and it even has some enticing extras.
The shoes are secured with a double Techno-3 Push buckle closure system which is sited along the centre of the shoe - this increases aerodynamicity and also makes for an even better fit. The buckles are also designed for easy adjustment, with an extra button on the buckles which lifts the buckles to make them more easily accessible.
Another innovative feature on the Shot is the vented sole - to maximise usefulness and comfort across a range of conditions, the vent can be adjusted (or closed completely) as conditions require. The carbon fibre the sole is made of has an opposing angle weave pattern which provides maximum stiffness whilst providing a bit of flex in the toe area for better circulation and stress relief.
If you’re looking for a pro quality shoe, you could do worse than consider the Sidi Shot - the price is quite punchy but with their replaceable parts and durable construction, these beauties will pay their way over time.
