    Your Most Favorite Shoes Ever

    Just wondering for the sake of fun, what is everybody's most favorite pair of shoes you've ever owned to ride in?

    My favorite pair of riding shoes would have to be my DC Shoes Mirras, most comfortable pair i've ever owned and also the most indestructable i've ever owned, they've been everywhere, from Toronto, to Bumble **** Arkansas

    661 Nuevo. they look and feel like a good skate shoe but are SPD and stiff on the bottom for good power transfer.

    So far my favourite has been my current ones. Sidi ActionSRS. Fits like a glove and has replaceable lugs. Since those seem to be the only parts of my shoes that wear out, I expect to keep these for quite some time.




    They were kind of pricey retail in the US but I picked up a pair while on a business trip in Italy and paid less than half the US price for them. As a bonus, I got them in the Euro colours which I like better than the US colours.

    I just got a pair of Answer Speeders and like them. This is my first pair of clipless shoes so do not have anything to compare them to though. They were inexpensive and seem to be well put together.

    My Vittoria Rock's are probably the most comfy shoes I've owned, but I must say that my old '97 Answer Accelerator's gave me Mucho Satisfaction....

    I currently wear Duegi & Specialized Comps.... Brand new pair of Pearl Izumi Vortex in the waiting in my closet....

    im still using a pair of sidi road shoes, two straps, that I bought in the early 80's and they are still awesome.. I love em.. and they won't die.. seldom wear socks with em, just to contradict any of those fears of rotting prematurely when not using socks.. these things just plain rock! and have for many years.. sure i would love to have one of the newer sidis.. but why bother then these are still alive and doing so well.. I must have paid all of $60 for them..

    I really like my Northwaves, but the rubber sole disintegrated. The tops are still awesome, so I've relegated them to my CX shoes.

    I now ride platforms, so my VANS are my choice of shoes.

    I just got my 1st pair (haven't even tried them yet.....will tonight though).

    Although I ride road mostly (comfort bike), I liked the shoe styles better for mountain biking. I bought a pair of Lake shoes.

    If you are riding clipless, I don't think you could find any more comfortable than my SIDI 5 Dominators. I've got 11.5EEEE feet and the "Mega" size is a God-send. Yes, they are expensive and look like some flashy racing shoes but they are great compared to my prior experience w/ other brands. In all fairness, I should say they are the only ones I've had in a "wide" but man they are "Italian shoe comfortable". My LBS told me when I tried them on that if I did try them I'd never wear another brand as they were Italian made and had that Italian shoe comfort! He was right, I bought and LOVE them so far.

    I ride the least expensive clipless that I can find. I've had two pairs of Diadora Geko's and they hold up pretty well. Probably a bit on the heavy side, but I'm not a strong enough rider to know the difference.

    I agree. I have two pairs of Sidis (ActionSRS and Energy). The Actions are essentially the same shoes as the Dominators but with different buckles and they are the best fitting most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned... cycling or otherwise.

    I got some Sidi Genius 5 (Lorica) road shoes and I have to agree with the others who are complimenting Sidi shoes. They are by far the best (quality materials, workmanship, fit, comfort, etc.) shoes I've owned - even "normal" shoes. They are great!

    I have a pair of Diadora MTB shoes, but I can't remember the model or anything. They were purchased in the summer of '03. They are quite comfortable and have a cover that "protects" the shoestrings which is nice for riding off-road IMO.

    Nice Asics. I have a pair of Kayanos for running, but I never run.
