I'm planning on getting some in half an hour when I get off work. Anybody have any comments on these? This will be my second pair. The first pair, some Shimanos I got on clearance like 5 years ago, didn't fit very good, and there wasn't much to them. These should be about $95 total. I don't see spending another $50 for the pro version, and the sport isn't that much cheaper, and I don't know jack about other shoe brands.

I have used a pair of these for about a year now. They are a great shoe. Comfortable for my feet, and I didn't have any clearance problem with the cleat/pedal/shoe combo from the beginning. I'd say go for it.
