If you're looking to stay on this side of the $400 price point when you buy your next pair of cycling shoes, you've probably drooled over plenty of pricier pairs in your search, mourning the impossibility of buying them. Stop moping, and stick your feet into in Sidi's Kaos Air Carbon Shoes instead to stay on-budget without sacrificing the sleek functionality of pricier options. Sidi shoes have been a mainstay both in the peloton and amongst the well-shod feet of professional amateurs for decades now, and the Kaos Air is a model that's continued to improve over the years, this year boasting added breeziness from Air uppers. You'll avoid slimy toes on hot, sunny rides while your foot stays locked-in with the Kaos' innovative combination of a Tecno 3 buckle and a main ratcheting buckle. Make as many adjustments as you want before or during a ride with the system, which allows for nearly unlimited fit tweaks. A plush, padded instep will ward off pressure points and restriction, and once you dial the Tecno-3 buckle into the position you want, the non-binding and non-stretch wire won't gradually inch out of position during your ride. Underneath your foot, Sidi graced the Kaos Air with its Millenium 4 Carbon Composite outsole, which consists of nylon blended with carbon fiber and allows the shoe to maintain its relatively accessible price point without sacrificing a stiff, reactive platform for power transfer.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
