Bringing some over-the-top Italian flair to their latest and lightest road shoes, a new limited edition pair of Sidi Sixty Python shoes debut in all of their snakeskin print glory. Sidi says they are throwing back to their early days, the 1960s heyday of animal prints that have crept back into style. But don’t worry, these snake scales are simply printed onto the same high-performance, eco-friendly synthetic microfiber upper of the rest of their top-level shoes.
Sidi Sixty Limited Edition python snakeskin print road shoes
Sidi first started making shoes in a converted barn in 1960, so it seems fitting to bring back some retro styling to their most modern road racing shoe. The Limited Edition python print version is available for pre-order through global local Sidi distributors now, with deliveries expected to start by the end of this month. Sidi doesn’t say just how limited in numbers they will be, but the snakeskin edition does get the same 339€ price tag as the standard Sixty.
For a little refresher on the tech details of the new Sixty… The shoes’ upper is a laser perforated TechPro microfiber with additional mesh venting at the toe and around the padded cuff, and a simple shaped plastic heel cup. The shoes feature the same light & stiff Vent Carbon Sole of the Shot with replaceable tread pucks, a single Tecno-4 Plus dial closure located on the tongue & a toothed velcro strap across the forefoot. Sidi doesn’t make an official weight claim for the Sixty, other than that they are lighter than the Shot, which typically weigh about 290g.
