I went to one of my LBS and found these shoes : http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...eid=&pagename=

they are 119,99$ CA +tx

do you think that they are nice shoes. All my trekking/jogging shoes have vibram

are lake shoes good?


on other store I looked at the sidi ones, they are a little bit more expensive but still look great

If you have the money get the Sidis. I like that their road shoes and MTB shoes of similar model use the same last so you can just get the same size and know you will have the same fit. Their shoes fit great, like a slipper or something. Just super comfortable.

I'd also look into Shamino shoes. They seems to fit my feet perfectly. I picked up a pair for $185 @ my LBS and they are about as stiff as non-carbon shoes get.

Definitely look into the Sidi's. They make the best shoes by far.

I like them so far. Fits like a glove and somewhat comfortable to walk in. I dont think the soles are going to cause me any problems on the trails either

G/L with your shoe purchase....I'd buy it from a store because everybody's feet are soo different.

You're comparing Lake (apples) to SIDI's (oranges)?

This one is almost embarrasing to answer.... SIDI

PS> I used to buy SIDI's from Italy & sell them for $90 USD more on eBAY. Believe me, or not....
