What Specialized BG insoles size to order for a 46 Sidi?

A light bike doesn't replace good fitness.

Hello there!!

I own a pair of Sidi road shoes, model is Five, they are size 46. I'm going to order a Specialized BG insoles (or footbeds), the blue ones (middle size arch support). I´d like to know if there will be any issues with sizing between these two brands. I'm going to order insoles in size 45-46, but I'd like to be 100% so I don't have to return them just because of sizing issues. Thank you so much in advance.

Can't help on size specifically but just from personal experience be careful if your Sidi's are already a snug fit. I bought BG insoles for use in Northwaves and because of the thickness of the BG insole, the shoes were then too tight and I finished up buying a new pair of shoes too :oops: Sidi's are thin insoles so just be mindful of this extra thickness.

What poully said about thickness. With that in mind, my size 46 Sidis are not tight and my size 45 Specialized insoles fit nicely.

U will be fine... Slip the pissy blue sidi insoles out if the fit is too tight... Personally, I run them ontop of the sidi insoles for increased comfort. I'm a 46 Sidi and use the 45-46 BG greens

I´m waiting for the same insoles. Hope to get them next week. Many on-line shops sell these insoles, but the demand is now high or they just don't have enough stock in my size, also because they have a new ones for 2013, which are slightly cheaper but they don't bring the inner wedges. I wouldn't recommend these wedges, as they reduce inner space for the feet. I use wedges between speedplay cleats and the cleat.

I´m not sure which model I will receive, if 2012 or 2013. I´ll post updates.
Happy Trails !!!
