New Shoes

Posted in roadbike section as well just to hear how awful these shoes are. Actually I like them so that's all that matters. While I was there I got refitted and while I was on trainer iin shop the guy noticed my BB was clicking. I had noticed it earlier in the day but thought it was my trainer at home. Oh well cheap fix. Here's the shoes.

Hey, as long as they fit, you're feet will be happy. That's what's important.

Hey, I would wear them proudly. Looks like a perfectly good shoe to me.

edit: Just researched those puppies, a very nice shoe indeed. Custom fitting option is a huge seller in my book.

Ah, but if you're riding platforms you can use these beautiful ones. I have a pair on my 'bent and love them.
