Bottom line

The T-5 Air by Sidi is the updated version of the Sidi T-4 Air Carbon shoe. Both are shoes that could be used to go from swim to bike sections of the competition. But the T-5 Air now features an improved fit and a more stylized upper via its matte finish and graphics.

If you are looking for an efficient tri shoe, then the Sidi T-5 Air might be worth the try.
