All the equipment I’ve purchased, between the bike, power meters, pedals, saddles, bars, etc, the last thing I’ve touched was the shoes.
I’ve gone from spd mountain bike shoes, to bontrager three strap shoes. Good condition, you can feel the flex in the foot or your foot coming out of the back of the shoe, I’d call them an okay shoe. I bet I paid between the 100 and 200 range.
Kickin around the idea of new shoes, curious of everyone’s experiences, favorite shoes, how much you go over board on shoes or don’t go over board.
Since I’m really into the speedplay lately, I’ve thought about speedplay shoes but won’t limit myself to specifically speedplay. Sidi keeps coming up for speedplay and previous generation are more reasonable but still not cheap. But if shoes should last a long time, a good investment should be worth it. I’ve been riding 6 to 8 hours a week lately and want my feet, support, etc to be the best it can be.
