The cheapest you'll find is likely on eBay: the Sidi Genius 5.5 HT seems to be going for ~$200. Of the "brick and mortar" sellers, probikekit.com has them for $227, with free shipping to the US.

Which Sidi shoes are you looking for. Bike Tires Direct has the Genius Mesh for $179, but those are road shoes, and this is the mtb forum...

So, looking for the Dominator or the Bullet?

I got my (at the time) top-end Sidi ActionSRS for US$120... but the caveat was that I had to get them in Italy while on a business trip and the US dollar was favourable at the time. My suggestion would be to be on a look-out for closeout sales. Don't forget your LBSes as well as online shops. Performance/Nashbar and JensonUSA sometimes have good deals but also check out some overseas shops. I also find BestBikeBuys to be a good resource.

Bwahahahahaha, I do. Was asking for a friend. The bikeshop I manage dosen't carry and won't get Sidi. I can get them thru another shop EP for myself, but not for friends. Thus I ask the question here. Thanks for the link Hank. Gonna convince my buddies shop to do a little price match, we'll see what happens.
