Anyone using the Spesh BG footbeds in their Sidis? I know the footbeds are made for Spesh shoes but does anyone have a problem fitting one into a Sidi?

Use Spesh BG inserts (blue) in Shimano M220 and Sidi Genius 5 - no problem. Actually works quite well.

I agree with above posts. They work and fit great. There is one small issue that may or may not affect you. On my Ergo 2 the arch area is a little raised so you may need a flatter insole than normal.

Just a little caution in case you already have the sidi's.
I bought footbeds for my northwave shoes which were quite a snug fit anyway. You've guessed it, the darn things were way too tight with the footbeds due to the thickness of the insoles. Trimmed the insoles down too so couldn't even take them back ! :oops:

Have been using the blue ones in my Genius 6.6s for ages and no problems.

Using the green sets in 2 pairs of Genius 5s together with 1.5mm varus shims with no problems.

Velcro straps on the forefoot ended up a little shorter when fastened, but no discernible change in fit.

I did a comparison of the insole length of the Sidi and BG and realized that you got to go one size smaller to fit the BG footbed into a Sidi shoe e.g. size 41-42 BG fits a size 43 Sidi. Anyone have the same findings?

Sidi have a funny size scale and you have to adjust their size up 1 or 0.5 euro size (although not for some models like Dragon SRS Carbon). That's a well known fact and has been discussed on this forum extensivey...

BG Footbeds seem to run long even for BG S-Works shoes. A 43-44 footbed fits my 45 BG S-Works shoe perfectly.

Can anyone help me get a pair of BG++ Blue insoles in size 39-40? The online stores I've tried don't ship to Singapore. I can do Paypal.

I found them to be ineffective in my Rocket 7s when compared to the same wedge currently being used. I use these http://www.bikefit.com/products.php
