What shoes to buy(4 posts)

What shoes to buypr
Feb 20, 2002 8:44 PM
I want some imput on what shoes to buy. i came home last night to find that, despite my best attempts to hide my bike things, my new dog took an intrest in my carnac elipses. these are probably my favorite cycling shoes i've ever had. I've been thinking about DMT but dont know much about them. I like the ultimax shoes but am affraid the problem people have had with the nike hautacum shoes and the top buckle strap digging into your ankle might be a factor with these. Maybe someone has used these shoes and can give some feedback. I may end up geting another pair of carnac ellipses. By the way, the dog also took out the helmet, well the strap anyway. We've got a long way to go.

I recently tried on a DMT model (the R3 I think) and really liked the way it fit. I was put off when I read this: http://www.velonews.com/HyperNews/get/tech_talk/1973/1.html?inline=-1&nogifs but I can't speak for whether the comment has any merit.

I just saw on the Velonews board that someone said that DMT makes Nike shoes. I bought the Nike Poggio which fit just as well (no wonder.) I had no difficulty with the cleat placement for Speedplays.
