Sidi Genius 4 vs. Genius 3(4 posts)

Sidi Genius 4 vs. Genius 3Velocipedio
Dec 5, 2001 1:23 PM
I was looking at a pair of Genius 3s the other day, and the guy who runs the shop says 'wait until february, we'll have the Genius 4s." I like the fit of Sidis, and I plan to buy a pair... but what is the difference between G3 and G4? I can get the G3s for about $150 canadian [@ $100 US], and I imagine the G4s will be about $200 Canadian. ANyone have an opinion of whether it's worth the wait? [BTW... I don't need the shoes right now... they'll be salting the roads within a couple of weeks, putting an end to the season.]

Velcro straps go the other way, other cosmetics. Check out the pictures in a catalog or website.

... I'm guessing it's generally cosmetic... how do you improve on perfection???

We abide.

I have the Genius 4s. The major difference is that the top strap is adjustable on both sides. (One side has the buckle, the other side has a pull-push adjustment like on a plastic tie-fastener.) I found this very helpful in getting a proper and tight fit across the top. I could never get the 3's tight enough to keep my heel in place.
