Found a Great Place to Buy Cycling Shoes Online
My old Sidi Techno road shoes are starting to fall apart, so I've started down the path of replacing them. Unfortunately, buying shoes online can be an expensive crap-shoot as I'm finding-out. I already ordered and sent back a pair of Sidi Genius shoes that were way
too big for me. Even though the shoes were on sale, this turned out to be an expensive lesson as I had to pay shipping both
ways and I didn't know about the restocking fee until I tried to do the return
After a ridiculous amount of searching, I found that Art's Cyclery
seems to be the best place for ordering shoes. Like Zappos.com, Art's offers free shipping both ways
! Unlike Zappos, Art's has a bigger selection of cycling shoes and quite a few of them are on sale for decent prices. As of the time of this post, Art's is also offering additional discounts, free cleats with their shoe purchases, and I got free two day shipping because I ordered two sets of shoes. That's hard to beat!

I created this post as I find shoe buying a bit frustrating (and expensive) and am hoping someone else can benefit from this information.
