How do SiDi shoes fit?
The optimum fit -test: If there is any gap between the heel and the back of your ankle, then the shoes are too large, and they’ll feel sloppy when you are riding. If your toes touch the end of the shoes when you are standing upright, the shoes are too small. You should be able to wiggle your toes.
How should bike shoes fit?
The shoes should be snug, but not overly tight. It’s important to have a snug fit because cycling shoes tend to stretch over time. The fasteners should not pinch your foot, and the inside should keep your heel comfortable against the hard sole. When you walk in the shoe, it should not slip or have any wiggle room.
