Budget Road Shoes....With BOA....Possible?

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

Budget Road Shoes....With BOA....Possible?

Im looking for a new pair of shoes as my old ones have recently bit the dust. Im not looking for anything too extravagant but I would really like to have BOA incorporated as my old shoes had it and Im not sure I'd ever want to go without it. The fit is too good and easy to dial in. Im hoping to spend $100 or less, less is better obviously. I don't need carbon or anything crazy. I ride a few times a week for about 30-40 miles. Anyone have any recommendations? Also, I have relatively wide feet so narrower shoes don't work for me.

Thanks

I was in the hunt for some new shoes and unfortunately you won't find anything below $100 that has a BOA unless if it's on sale.

OTOH, the "cheap" shoes that have BOA are the new Pearl Izumis and Specialized Expert. I think Scott has a couple of pairs too.

I personally ended up with some Lake 237s with dual BOAs and it comes in Wide Fit. Not on your budget though.

I got my 2014 S-Works shoes for 110 shipped. If you don't mind used, deals pop up from time to time.

We sell the Scott BOA road shoes @ $175.00, that's usually the new MSRP for most BOAs from what I've seen ($175-$200).

Nashbar's return policy is great as well.

Check the closeout section of Specialized's website. They are very good about returns. No questions asked.

Someone suggested it already but I was going to suggest going over to Nashbar while they have the 21% off and free shipping. The Lakes with BOA look pretty good.

I have a "new" pair of Mavic Ksyrium Pros size 8 for sale. Worn on 2 rides. Not a mark on the uppers. $135 shipped in CONUS. Retail at $179.

I just got the Lakes in white, and they look at lot better in person than online. If you get them, go for a full size smaller. I usually wear a 43, but they were way too big, 42 fit me a lot better. Yeah and the deal was too good to pass up, they were 124 shipped after taxes.

Oh and theyre wide, which is good for me.

I got the same one but with the ratchet strap instead (https://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Produc...77_-1___204700). Definitely wider than most and I picked the regular width too. Nice and roomy in the toe box. Almost could have gone down 1/2 a size.

Another vote for Lakes if you can find them in wide. I have some 236s that I got off chainlove for less than $100, so search for a sale. Google their size chart, its very detailed and worked for me.
