How long do Sidi shoes last?
I have been happily using my Sidi Genius 3’s for about 5 years. That translates into 12-16,000 miles of sunny weather, rain, snow, sleet, salts, and my sweaty feet. I couldn’t even count how many sets of campy plastic cleats I’ve gone through in the same period.
Where are Gaerne boots made?

Should I buy cycling shoes a size bigger?
Cycling shoes of some brands veer towards running small. You should do the needful to size up when picking the correct pair. However, most will fit agreeably and not too tight and will run true to size.
Do cycling shoes run true to size?
From my experience road, cycling shoes don’t fit the way normal everyday shoes fit. Most cycling shoes are designed to fit snug, so you want to go down a 1/2 to a full size.
Should cycling shoes fit tight?
Cycling shoes should be snug. When trying shoes on in the shop, you don’t want to have your toes against the end of the shoes or the sides uncomfortably squeezing the feet. But visa versa, you don’t want the shoes to feel roomy. Hold the back of the shoe and check that your heel doesn’t move when you gently pull up.
