For 2019, Sidi returns as an official sponsor for Team Katusha Alpecin and Team Bahrain Merida – both with bold hopes for this year’s World Tour.
Two new limited-edition batches of Sidi Shot road shoes celebrate the Italian brand’s ongoing partnerships with the cream of the sport and are now available for fans.
Word spreads quickly throughout the peloton and it’s perhaps unsurprising that two of this year’s most ambitious and well-equipped pro-teams have chosen Sidi Shots to adorn the feet of their athletes. Worn to victory in just about every road racing event in the calendar – Giro, Tour and Vuelta among them – Sidi Shots are inextricably linked to top-tier cycling.
The product of a trajectory of development stretching back over 50 years – Sidi Shots embody a palimpsest of meticulous care and give a kind of ride magic you simply won’t find elsewhere. If you’re passionate about cycling and want a pair of shoes as comfortable as your favourite slippers that are also capable of winning Grand Tours, then look no further.
Every single design detail employed in both of these sets of shoes is a testament to Sidi’s longstanding position at the forefront of performance cycling. Cleats on cycling shoes? Carbon soles? Dialled closure? Heel retention systems? All pioneered by Sidi.
These new 2019 limited-edition Shots uphold that pedigree – they’re even more breathable than their predecessors owing to
At Saddleback, we’re super excited to see some of our favourite riders wearing these limited-edition shoes over the coming season. Marcel Kittel of Team Katusha has already shown great form throughout the beginning of 2019, whilst Vincenzo Nibali of Team Bahrain is gunning for Grand Tour victories once again. We’ll also be closely following the progress of young Slovenian, Matej Mohorič, for whom 2019 promises to be an exciting year of racing.
These new limited-edition shoes arrived at our HQ packaged in beautiful, special edition boxes with dedicated graphics unique to each team. Inside, more special touches have the hallmark of Sidi’s penchant for racing romance. Nifty shoe bags emblazoned with respective team rider names and even a pair of team socks make for offerings that are as much collector’s pieces as world-class performance products.
The Team Katusha Alpecin and Team Bahrain Merida Sidi Shot Air Shoes are available now from Saddleback, Sidi’s official UK home, or from our authorised Sidi stockists in the UK and the Irish Republic.
