Attention wide footed people, Nike Poggio to the rescue(2 posts)

Attention wide footed people, Nike Poggio to the rescueJ.S.

Just tried on a pair of the new Nike Poggio's at the shop and these shoes are a revelation. For the first time ever has a pair of shoes felt perfect on my wide feet the minute I put them on. Combined with the carbon sole these shoes fit incredibly. To top it off these things weigh about HALF what a Carnac ellipse does, in fact I had the same look of awe as when I picked up an all carbon road fork for the first time. I have a relativly new pair of Sidi's and Lakes that are going into the back of the closet as soon as I can afford to spend another $180.00 on a pair of shoes.

Merckx introduced a Poggio set of cleats back about 1995. He named them after the famous climb of Milan San Remo road race which he won seven times in his day. Wonder if Eddy & Nike have teamed up? Mebee Tiger could improve his game?
