I've never owned any kind of pedals other than platform and I'd like to switch to clipless. I'm thinking along the lines of the Crank Bros. Smarty.
The problem isn't ordering the pedals, it's the shoes. Only one local shop carries shoes and the only ones they stock in my size are the $100+ road types. I'm interested in an MTB type. I'm also looking for better value.
The problem lies in sizing. I wear size 13(US) shoes and my options are more limited. There is also the difficulty of ordering a shoe that should fit and finding out it doesn't. What is my best option and what site do you recommend I order from and what size for the brand/model?
ETA: Sorry for the double post. My first post and I already screwed up.
