They've been out a while so surely some Sidi fans will have logged some miles in them.

How have they found them compared to the Ergo2 especially?

Tried both (side by side) whilst i was home in Geelong for christmas. Apart from some small cosmetic stuff, i could not tell the difference. In the end it came down to the $100 price difference.

I went with the ergo 2.

have both... i couldn't tell much difference as functionally similar for the straps & locks.
carbon sole base is sturdier on the new Ergo3 but both equally stiff
Ergo 3 as adjustable sole airvents but somewhat tiny to have any significant effect.

waiting for the Liquigas version to semi-retire my super durable ergo2

Sorry?

Without trying to seem obtuse, that seems a bit of a oxymoron to me?

well, if you look at the plates... forefoot area has thicker carbon, but both equally stiff while pedalling

I personally find the adjustable heal retention device a disappointment compared to some of the old Sidi Ergo's, I found my non-heal retention shoes conformed better around my foot...
