Strengths:    Last forever
Just like Dominator but without finicky ratchet
Look like quality


Weaknesses:    Sole is slick on rocks and roots
No toe bumper-protection


Bottom Line:   
I had a pair of Dominators that were getting old and the ratchet buckle kept breaking ($25 each!!!). I wear a size 13/14 shoe and it can be hard to find shoes in a 48 that actually fit (narrow foot). The Giau fit perfectly out of the box, I've had them for 3 years with no issues.

I found that my feet hurt less and it's because I don't have the ratchet strap tightening my foot too much.

If you'r considering the dominators, but are unsure then get these. If you need a shoe that performs well in slick environments look elsewhere.

Sidi Bullet/Giau vs Dominator

Hello, I wonder about Sidi shoes. I have Sidi Bullet and sole is pretty stiff I wonder if it's worth to take Dominators. They have buckle closure but I wonder if they are more stiff. Sole looks the same.Read More »

Sidi Giau opinions wanted

I picked up a pair of Sidi Giau shoes at REI for $109 on sale. I tried them on but have not worn them riding yet, so I could still return them if I need to. They feel nice in the store but are only my 2nd pair of cycling shoes. $109 is not a lot to spend on shoes but it is at the top of my budget ra ... Read More »
