    Pearl Izumi Bike shoes

    Does anyone have a pair of Pearl Izumi SLR road bike shoes? I'm thinking of buying a pair - they seem like a good deal, $120. Any experience or insights with them? Thanks!!

    (Background: After a couple of seasons of tris using my mtn bike pedals and shoes, I'm buying the new road bike shoes and likely a pair of LOOK pedals).

    I bought a pair at Performance and like them a lot. They are light, breathable and easy in/out for tri's. I use them with the Shimano SPD-SL cleats and they work great. Only downside possibly is the fact that they open inward so that the fastening portion may get caught in the chain. Some tri shoes open outward specifically for that reason but I have not had a problem.
