The New-shoe Haiku*

Old shoes shot to hell.
New ones finally arrive.
And silver's still cheap.


*aka: I’m tired and uninspired,
so I’m down to taking pictures
of my freakin’ shoes.
(Which almost could have
been the haiku.)

Ahh Sidi's!!!!
You do get what you pay for!! I'll be going on my 3rd riding season in my Dragon 2's, and they are the best pair of Sid's I've owned yet!!!

Peace

You may get what you pay for, but I still beat the bushes looking for sales on Sidis. Those puppies are never cheap.

I watched for a good price for nearly two months until I found a pair of Eagle 5 Pros for $190.

Here here to lower prices!!!!
Still haven't meet a bike shoe that can take a beating like a pair of Sidis!!!! I am pretty hard on shit, so for me to say they are lasting so something!! Lol

If you have the patience for it, Sierra Trading Post carries Sidis; I scored my last pair for $45.

I was watching STP's site, Ti, but never found what I needed -- I was holding out for the adjustable, clicking top buckle instead of all Velcro straps.

What size shoe do you wear to get a $45 pair of Sidis?! The only shoes I see going that cheap are extreme sizes at either end of the size spectrum. With feet that seem to be a popular size, I never score the rock-bottom prices.

I settled for Velcro- and I wear a 41.
