DMT shoe fit?(3 posts)

DMT shoe fit?Jefferson
Jan 2, 2002 9:54 AM
I currently ride Sidi Genius 3 shoes. They are about as narrow as I can handle plus the arch is a little high for me. I am thinking about ordering some DMT shoes but I have no dealer close to me so I can try them on. How do these shoes compare to Sidis in the fit department?

I find them to be rather uncomfortably narrow at the heel. The fact that the rear part of the shoe is rigid plastic has a lot to do with this, I think. Sidis tend to stretch a bit with heat, DMTs won't -- at least at the back.

I have to agree with the other poster in that they are a very narrow shoe. Now, the new ones might fit differently. I tried the R-3's and they were narrow even in the toe box. A very nice and light shoe too. Hope they made changes in the fit. My last shoed were the sidi Tecno's. I now use the Northwave Evolution's and they fit great. Last years colors are on sale now at most places.

Good Luck,
