Custom shoes, Rocket7 ???(3 posts)

Custom shoes, Rocket7 ???Crash
Jan 7, 2002 12:06 PM
Even though I am now wearing Sidi Mega's, I am still having a problem with my cycling shoes. I am thinking about getting custom shoes done and the only place I have found that does it is Rocket7.com. Does anyone have any experience with them ? Any other companies you know that do this ? Thanks !

Lust Cycling does custom shoes, very expensive like Rocket7 though.

I wear between a size 48 and a 49 and I have narrow feet. (for example the Sidi G3 is wide on me.)

I ordered a pair from Rocket7 two years ago and the fit is perfect. (as should be expected from a custom shoe)

My only complaint of the shoes is that the velcro closure straps are made from the Loicra material which is not non-stretch like my prior Carnac's carbon straps were.

The shoes were expensive - but I was just tired of forking over 200 bucks for a pair of shoes that didn't fit perfectly.

That being said - I am not sure if I would go the custom route again. I heard that SIDI is making a narrow with g4 so I may give those a try in a 49. But for you if the Mega still doesn't fit, you may have to go custom.

Good Luck and happy riding.
