Why are wide clipless shoes so expensive?
Until today I was looking forward to going clipless. I was planning on doing it this weekend. The nearest LBS to me that sells shoes is a 2.5 hour one way drive (local gas is over $4.00 for the cheep stuff) so I wanted to know what I wanted first so I could call there and see if it is worth making the trip today.
I need size 13 EEEE (US size). In 3 days of looking and searching around BF for ideas the cheapest shoes I see that would fit are $225 (online/MSRP), and thats just the shoes. Whats the deal with shoe makers not having wide sizes in any of their sub $100 shoes or even $150. I have never spent over $200 for shoes and I'm not about to start now; defiantly not for something I'm not even sure I would like yet.
I'm off to price some straps I guess. I'm just a little let down. Any one else feel the same way? Or am I missing some magical brand that just sells wide cheaper priced shoes?
