touring shoes for platform pedals
I'm looking for an everyday shoe with a stiffer sole than my tennis/running shoes. After trying on a pair of Exustar touring shoes, I realized that even a simple platform can give me discomfort when the shoe fits poorly. Specialized shoes seem to fit me well. I want to assume that shimano shoes would also fit me, but that means a 114 mile trip to Houston just to try them on... The nearest bike shop has bontrager, but their shoes are all mtb shoes. It would be really nice to be able to find an everyday shoe that doesn't make my foot numb after a group ride, but more importantly, keep my feet coo
l in this soon to be hot and humid SE TX summer.
I've tried a pair of nashbar sandals too. Even though there was plenty of room, my forefoot varus didn't agree with the flat footbed on the sandals, and they ended up giving me hotspots.
Anyone have suggestions for stiff shoes for platform systems that mimics specialized's body geometry concept?
P.S. for the record, after trying on some specialized, I bought a pair of specialized bg pro for my more serious cycling pursuits.
