    Cheapest Shoes for Look?

    I've been married to clips and straps forever, but I have 7 bikes, and thanks to my wheeling and dealing, I have two sets of Look pedals, and one set of Campagnolo Look compatibles. So, it's time to give clipless a try, on my training ride road bike, and maybe on my track bike. What I want to know is, what are the cheapest shoes that I can get that are compatible?

    probably the cheapest road shoes you can find. Look is pretty much the standard these days.

    I don't know what the prevailing prices are in England, but virtually any road shoe will fit the Look three bolt pattern (as dutret says, it is a pretty universal standard). If Specialized is readily available, I have a pretty high opinion of their entry level shoes.

    Careful on the pre-Keo Look cleat. I found them to be a little slick at first.

    Same thing is $100 at Performance O_O. Link
    Kind of ugly in my opinion, but how do they feel?

    With the current exchange rate, that's 20. If I get a US buddy to mail them on, that could be a go-er.......

    Ah. Except that they only have them to size 9, and I'm an 11. Which might even be a 12 US. Damn my canoe -like feet!
