I was a long time (10 years+) Sidi user and tried Shots when they came out. I hated them. The fit never felt right and I couldn't ever get the closures right over the tongue. I ended up moving to the S-Works 7's which are, for me, the best shoes I've ever used.

Medium to narrow foot and high arch, so I prefer the Wire. Fits like a glove.

I have five pairs of Sidi Wire and one pair of Shot. Its no contest. The Shot is way more comfortable for me. It sucks as I rarely wear the other shoes :(

Thanks Chris.. Will have a look at the superfeet carbons.

Guyc/noc, I suspect the preference is due to the change of dial location.
Some with bony/pointy top of foot would hate the Shots location.
Mine seems happy so far.. Have. Tried the wire and ergo and didn't have issues with them. Last shape seems the same.

I use Wire model. Had an opportunity to try Shot at bike fitting but did not like dials being at the top at all. Wonder how new Wire 2 feel with one dial at the top and one at the side?
