What road shoes do you wear?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Let's just start counting the Specialized votes.

I count 8 so far.

Yep, they should be in the poll too. For me, they were a very close 2nd to the Sidi Genius (Mega).

I wear Sidi Genius for my race pair; and Specialized for my winter bike. I actually prefer the fit and feel of the Specialized's.
