The pair I tried on today was quite comfortable, even though a bit narrow through my forefoot/arch.. I guess what it'll really come down to is if I can find the right size for my weird feet.

Thanks to all for the advice.
We got all the new Shimano and Adidas road shoes in at Curbside. Don't have to spend a lot to get a nice set.

If you DO have 3 bills to drop on some shoes, get the Sidi 5.5 HT Carbon. They feel so nice.

I would avoid Adidas, personally. I've experienced/heard nothing but problems with their quality. Mike had BOTH straps come off his top-end Adidas mtn bike shoes for example. And I ripped a pair of their gloves in half taking them off after only 1 week of use (not shoes, but still quality issues)

Yeah, I stopped in on Friday afternoon and Eric was helping me out.. those Adidas with the ratchet buckle fit my wide foot quite well (plus, they're shiny silver "astronaut shoes"). But as others have mentioned, I'm a little suspect about their quality/longevity.

Hey Duppy/Ronin,

If you guys want to ride around, go to MEC/bike stores as well I'd be down. I have to get a couple of things from MEC for this week and I need to go to Canadian Tire as well.

Good times yesterday! Colin and Charlie I owe both of you guys a beer for being a money grubbing bastard

There was a huge debate on whether or not adidas was worth it in the Road forum. I don't usually like to base decisions on "general consensus" but the build quality does not look as great as the sidis.
