Man, is it just me or is it hard to find road shoes that fit good? I tried three different brands of shoes that didn't fit. Why do manufacturers of shoes think people have such narrow feet?

Then I tried Specialized. Wow! These shoes fit like a dream. Plenty wide enough and adequate room for toes. They were also on clearance, are very stiff and are very light. (not that weight of shoes is all that important)

Thank you Specialized for making shoes that fit!

I thought they sucked 'cause they're all too WIDE.

Why do manufacturers of shoes think people have such wide feet? ;-)

I just got a brand new pair of Sidis, which are supposed to be made for folks like me with narrow feet. I have to ratchet the damn things all the way down to keep my feet from moving around in them. I tried on a pair of Carnacs and felt like I was wearing the shoebox.
nah, me too.Haiku d'état

Are the soles on the Specialized shoes carbon or nylon? I was thinking about a pair of Specialized, but couldn't find much info about them, even on the company website. TIA!

I don't know and I through out the box already. I was just happy that they fit so well. You're right, Specializes site doesn't say much at all.
