Looking for Mr. Sidi...(7 posts)

Looking for Mr. Sidi...Akirasho
Mar 13, 2002 12:58 AM
I'm a US resident and I'm looking for a particular color/model of Sidi Genius 4 shoe in size 49.

I've been searching for a few days and have found many Euro suppliers but none that (a)carry a size 49 or (b)ship to the US.

I've posted discussions on several boards (including UK based), swapped a few emails and have recently tried to contact Sidi USA directly.

Does anyone know of a US supplier that is carrying this color/model in this size or know of a any reliable vendors?

Thanks!

Try Rob "Wizz" Whisenhant at Veltec Sports, Sidi's US importer. I found him to be very helpful in resolving a Sidi issue: Wizz@veltecsports.com

He is the guy to talk to at Veltec- but I don't think you'll have any luck. The way SIDI works is kind of interesting, Veltec picks colors and has SIDI make runs of the shoes in the colors that Veltec picked. So the SIDI offerings in the US could be very different than somewhere else in the world, or they could be very similar. The good part is that Veltec generally picks good colors, the bad part is that once they run out of a particular shoe, it takes a long time to get it back in.

I've seen these shoes on Ebay before and the guy selling them has an Ebay handle of bitz4bikes, he's out of England I think. Euro is probably the best way to go on this. I ordered a pair from England last week and received them in three business days!! Total including shipping was $128, they were Sidi Genius 4's but they were grey and red.

... interesting...

I couldn't respond to any of the responses to my question... but COULD respond to my own post... hmmmmm.

Anywho... I'm still waiting for a response from Veltec/Sidi USA... but got a lead on some from Parker International... anyone ever deal with them?

The image was "stolen" off Ebay so I have no particulars about the camera.

I've got an old pair of D2's in blue (with yellow soles) that I really like... I'd like something a little different... and I do like these.

Thanks for the help!

I've just received confirmation via email that Parker International in the UK has exactly what I'm after...

I've never done business with them so wish me luck... I'll post the results of my transactions for those with similar tastes.
