The Angels Want to Wear My New Shoes

Well, after nearly two years of hotfoot, numbness, pain, and swelling in a pair of inexpensive Specialized shoes I decided to breakdown and get something better. Sidi Dominators. Boy, for that amount of money, I sure hope they help. At least I'll look good.

You know if they were white you'd get an extra 2 - 4 mph.

Please keep us informed - especially over the long term. Those are on my list for next year, I'd be especially curious about how they help (or don't) your hot foot.

I do not have the same pair, but sidi shoes are great! They are like you do not have anything on.

I have never heard anyone say they regretted getting Sidi shoes.
