Got new shoes :D

Instead of buying a new drive train (XTR flippy shifters, rapid rise derailleur), I chose to spend my Christmas money on a pair of new shoes.

Here are a few pictures of my shoes They seem to fit me well in the store, but does anyone actually have experience with them?

Who says material things don't bring happiness??

$189 CAD + tax...so $217.35 CAD or $180 US....

Bought it from my LBS because I am really picky about the fit of my shoes. Tried on a pair of Specialized selling for $160 and they were horrid for my foot type.

Does anyone have these Shimano shoes?? Just wonder how they wear in, how long they last...etc

What would motivate someone to post bad pictures of generic shoes on an alleged MTB webiste?

I like them... Not my type of shoe personally because I prefer something more city-like and walkable. I use my bike for transportation so I need to be able to hop off the bike and walk around without killing myself. They look nice, though. I'd consider something like that if I was using them strictly for off-road riding.
