IMO the best value out there is Sidi shoes from either w.totalcycling or the same at w.probikekit.com Great shoes for around $100.

Got my Sidi Genius 3's for $82 plus shipping ($15) from http://www.bikekit.co.uk/

Took 5 working days to arive. Love 'em at 50% savings over US prices.

This may sound silly, but if the shoes don't fit you well, then it really doesn't matter how much they cost - they are going to suck. Mailordering shoes is a good approach (probably the best way to do it) if you know exactly what you want - otherwise it's hit or miss.

That being said - LaBicicletta (www.labicicletta.com) had Carnac Quartz shoes for $200, Sidi G-3's for $99 (only small sizes, though) and a bunch of other ones for reasonable prices.

I have wide feet and have sent shoes back because they don't fit. I don't like the look of those road shoes eather. I ordered some cannondale mtb shoes from nashbar. They fit my wide feet, they look like some NB running shoes I have, and the spd cleats don't F-up the floors in my house. I also got htem for around $70.

The ones that fit. We could all go on and on about this shoe or that, but ulitmately it all comes down to one thing:FIT. Be willing to pay more for a better fit - otherwise you'll regret it when you foot starts to cramp, your toes go to sleep, or your heels lift.

A good deal on something that doesn't fit well ain't really a deal.
Don't know, but I know about some CHEAP shoes NM :-)nestorl
