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

Exustar shoes

I am currently looking at buying cheapo exustar shoes from nashbar. I was wondering if anyone has any experiences with them and could offer opinions, what I really need to know is if they typically run larger or smaller in comparison to other brands of cycling shoes, I currently use specialized size 41 shoes and they fit like a glove. Since they are mail order, I cannot try them on and no LBS around me carries exus shoes. Thanks =)

I have some Nashbar Vicious shoes. I'm pretty sure the Vicious and Exustar shoes are rebadged LOOKs. They are great quality for the price.
Make sure you fir the shoes correctly. I'm a 12.5 US and my shoes are slightly too big for me. I"m definatly glad I listened to the [very helpful] nashbar guys and bought shoes with three straps- tigher, better, stonger. [Daft Punk]

You might think about mtn shoes though. I slip all over the place when I was into a convience store to get water and almost cracked my head on my kitchen counter by slipping on our linoleum.

What clips are you buying? I bought low priced Nashbar Ventoux pedals for my bike. I walked a bit too much on the cleats and found they wore quickley. I'm planning on a cheap $15 spd-like nashbar pair.

Let us know what you choose! Your experience is the cat's milk! ..or something.

I have Exustar SM 600 mountain bike shoes I use for commuting. I wear a size 45 in all my road and mtn bike shoes (PI, Northwave, Shimano, Look) and the Exustar fit very well.

Well I actually decided to go with specialized shoes again since I managed to find a good deal on the 04 Comp shoes. As for pedals I too am going with the Nashbar Ventoux pedals, cheap at 50 bucks.

I have a pair of exustars, work great. Could be a bit more stiff, but then again for the price you can't really beat it.

Exus shoes

I use Exus road shoes on a Cannondale R 500 I like them they feel supportive, a very good fit for the price. The new name of the company is Exustar, corporate name change.
