    This pair of shoes, "Agiro", were sent to me by a very nice Frenchman. Unfortunately they are a little too big; size 45 I believe, since I usually wear size 44.

    I'd wear thicker socks in order to be able to use those. Nice.

    Throw some sort of footbed in them. I have a pair of Diadora mtn shoes (Jalapeno I believe) that the ebay seller said were 10.5 which are marked 47. Undoctored, they fit like 11s or so. I threw a set of footbeds from one of my kids skate shoes in them and they now fit fine. Look a bit large, but no problems fit-wise.

    The Looks get used regularly, as they are very comfortable.
    I sported a pair of those Look shoes with my Look 753 for a while. I did like them--comfortable and well-constructed--but eventually the velco wore out before the shoe. I then resorted to a strap that went all the way around the shoe for added support; it was a cycling-specific strap with a wide leather top. Eventually I tired of constantly trying to tighten the straps and went back to Sidis. If I had another pair, I'd take care to keep those straps clean to extend the life of the shoe.

    Velcro on straps can typically be replaced with a seam-ripper and a sewing machine. If they are 44s, send them to me and I'll show you

    I have a pair of Shimano 600 tricolor shoes, but can't get to them right now to take a pic. I'm surprised no one else on here has posted a set, with all the 600 fans.

    Oddly enough, I didn't even find a pair on ebay, nor an image on the web as an example.

    Was as the thrift store looking at some sports equipment when my daughter taps me on the shoulder and asks, "What's this?" to some golf club cover. That's when my eye catches a pair of shoes with the golf gear... but they're not golf shoes...



    Here's the kicker: just last night I was about to order some extra cleats (just because my old ones are about 20 years old) so I figure for $2.50 the cleats on these alone are worth it. Then I try them on - they fit me exactly!

    Now I've got me a matching set of vintage Look pedals and vintage(-ish?) shoes!

    Anybody have any idea what model or year these are? I couldn't find any markings other than "KV4--44" under the foot pad. I'm guessing size 44? I usually wear a 43, but I have found different manufacturers have slightly different measurements.

    Not quite as bold as @non-fixie's Looks, but they'll do.

    You and me both. I always had to use a pedestal grinder to widen the slots for my toeout but I wore out 3 pairs of Avocet 20s since the '80s (unfortunately mostly by wearing them all the time and walking the soles down). Some smart guy somewhere should still be making something just like those.

    As for slotted cleat shoes Vittoria still makes these up to size 47 for about $160. They are SPD pattern but they come with a pair of attachable slotted cleats in the box. I just bought me some as my Dettos have always been a little small.

    Y'all can also find slotted cleats to bolt onto two of the SPD bolt holes at "Yellow Jersey".

    Can't believe nobody grabbed these. They are like $300 new and are insanely nice. Look for a relist:

    Very nice shoes, but I'm sure "size 40" was probably the reason they didn't sell. That's even too small for me!
