Sidi Genius 6.6 carbon - what have I done?

Flush with N-1 bike cash I've pulled the trigger - $230 at chainlove.com. My last, very profitable bike flip essentially pays for them.
Unfortunately, though flush with bike money, my PayPal was underfunded. That means full disclosure on the $180 that will hit the family checking account.
Call me Imelda - I have about 6 road shoes (various brands, Look, SPD, and old-style clip), three MTB shoes, and three road winter boots. The Sidi cost as much as all the rest together (excluding the Lake winter boots)!

Who for? Robtown or the shop he got sucked into "Just to see what they have in the way of cycling Socks"?

I tried on a pair of Sidi's many moons ago and they were fantastic. Then I looked at the price. I nearly stayed with Straps and Clips after that.

The women will understand that a man cannot have too many pairs of shoes. Hopefully, you got white shoes.

Yes and no. They were 50% off. My last two pair (Northwave) from the same site were $45 shipped (that's for both). I always shop for sales and use coupons etc. I try not to think of it as spending big $ but as reusing funds gained by flipping bikes and parts. The cost depreciated over 6 - 10 years should be reasonable.

You've spent a lot of money on a great pair of shoes. Enjoy!

I did see them at another site for $190 but the largest size was 42.
