Another shoe question

Nike cycling shoes. Any of you using them? I'm looking for feedback related to sizing,durability and comfort.
I am considering shoes by Lake,SIDI and maybe NIKE. What say you all and many thanks in advance. Lp

I have a pair of Sidi Genius 4 (I think) and they run small compared to the same size in other shoes.

I'm a 46 in Adidas, but 47 in Sidi.

The shoes are very durable. Mine are approaching 9 years old, and only recently showing signs of wear on the velcro straps.

My past experiences have me prejudiced against Nike.

I have a Pair of Black Nike's that are a Mountain Shoe. 3 Velcro enclosures secure em to my feet. They have worked well with my old pedals as well as my new Candy SL's. Comfort is fine, fit has been good, and they held up well this past year.

I wore a pair of Nike cycling shoes for a year or so a while back and they were true to size. I forget which model it was though, some bright arse red ones. They worked great in the mud though.

only ever used diadora (narrow and painful but they were two sizes to small so...) and sidi - try the mega for pure comfort and SRS (replaceable soles) for not having throw good shoes away until they're completely trashed

I don't think I'll change from Sidi SRS as the system seems to work very well. I can get my feet into their Euro48 with a footbed (no hotspots and no numb toes) as well.

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

I recently picked up a pair of road shoes from Pricepoint, the Sette and they have been great. I have a wide foot and they fit perfect.

I did not want to drop 200+ for a pair of shoe and found these one sale for $49.00 on day.
