Check the rubber heel piece on your Sidi road shoes for looseness. Tighten the screw just to make sure. Both pieces fell off of my 6 week old Genius 3's while riding this week.
Why and I warning everyone about something so minor? Well, the retail cost for EACH of these rubber pieces is $11.99!

... agreed...

I was lucky enuff to be stopped at a light when one fell off as I put my foot down (screw was still there too). A quick check showed that the other shoe was on it's way too.

Blue Loctite ended this concern.

We abide.

Remain In Light.

thank you very much

both were loose. the right one was almost gone.

i thought about using duct tape, but loctite seemed a better solution.
but keep the Loctite off the top bucklesLuis

It melts the plastic on the ratchet buckles. First hand experience.

I just lost one. You are correct, the other was loose too.
They certainly are expensive to replace. Loc-Tite hopefully will solve the problem.
