    New Booties

    I just tried on my new cycling boots, and while they keep my feet warm I don't like them.

    There is extra room on the toes, making my feet look a half size larger than they really are. This is unacceptable!

    Maybe the little lady at the dry cleaners can hem the front down.

    Maybe the extra room is for thicker socks, to keep your feet really warm.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    Wow. A whole half size larger.

    You'd better get a red rubber clown nose to go with those oversized clown shoes. Problem solved.

    They can't possibly be as big as Sorel snow pacs, when I wear my Sorel boots my feet wind up looking two sizes bigger.

    Eh, it doesn't really matter. There were really cheap so I figured I'd give them a try. The cut on the bottom is odd, and it is next to impossible to clip in with them on. I'm already looking at others online, but I think I might just run down to the LBS, because it doesn't look like I can really get a good deal on them through ebay. Maybe I'll gut most of the bottoms off slap on a couple strong elastic straps and use them with my mtb shoes when I get them next month.

    Don't gut the booties just yet.

    Maybe the new Mtb shoes wil be a half size too large as well.

    Yeah I'll wait till I get them. The cleats for the crankbrothers pedals I want are smaller than the cleats for my keo pedals.
