    Semi-Reasonably Priced MTB shoes

    A quick recap: I'm new to cycling, just got a Spec. Tricross Comp (a year old), which I love. Have been doing some road rides and some trail rides. Just ordered Candy C pedals from ebay, and need MTB shoes to clip into. I tried on a Shimano shoe (121) and a Pearl Izumi shoe (Vagabond M4) at REI. They were ok. Then I tried a Sidi Dominator shoe at a bike store and loved it, except for the price. So I'm scouring the 'net for a deal on my size Dominator (44.5), but wondered about some less expensive Sidis (the Blaze perhaps). Or anything else.

    I'd like to spend no more than $100 on ebay or on sale on MTB shoes, unless I spend a bit more for the Dominators (if I can find a great deal on them). I don't need the absolute best shoes ever, but want them to be comfortable and last a long time. What do YOU suggest?

    Spend the money on the Sidi's They hold up to a lot of hard use. This is one of the areas that you get what you pay for.

    I have never felt dissapointed in the cheapest **** I can find. I put my Shimano shoes to extensive hard use. I see no reason to splurge. Comfy, you can walk in them, and they last. More than good enough for me. I paid less than 60 dollars for them at a shop 5 years ago or so.
