    i need shoes and soon

    as it turns out, the izumi vagabond's i picked up for $40 were actually out of stock, so now i'm left trying to find another shoe. the requirements are:

    size 43
    look-compatible
    =<$100
    non leather.

    if you know of any deals, let me know.

    If you've got a Pearl Izumi outlet nearby you can score some great shoes at very reasonable prices.

    I have access to a selction of used pedals at work super cheap, and ive been wanting to try clipless for a while now... but im having trouble finding shoes that even fit my size 13 feet. I was also wondering if there are any shoes out there that have the cleats mounts higher in the sole so they dont click on the floor when you walk, and are comfortable for wearing off the bike pretty regularly (for 6 hours). finally, the cheaper the better, and looks arent TOO much of an issue.

    Has anyone had any experience with these: (even though theyre pretty darn ugly)

    Check ebay for the older Nike Poggios....I have the second gen pair, and they have lasted for well over three seasons of racing.... Good shoes.

    are nike cycling shoes true to size. for example are your poggios the same size as your sneakers?

    i had a pair of nike mtb shoes (42.5) and they were a bit tight. then again this is compared to puma sneakers. i replaced them with some adidases (43) which were a little too big. the moral of the story is: if you can, try some on before you buy.

    i ended up finding these:



    in my size on ebay for a nice price.

    as far as i can tell, they're a recent sidi zeta mesh, barely used. i decided to jump on them.

    edit: they're the '06 model

    Nice score. My nikes run a little smaller than the other shoes I've tried....
