Since i barely got a response to my earlier question about the AXO shoes, how about the Adidas Frosco. Does anyone own them? Are they good or bad?

I did not have the same shoe as you listed in the other post. I had a set of their MTB shoes, which did not hold up worth a damn. The shoes did not make it a season. General appearance and quality was inferior to other brands (but so was the price). I've since then switched to Sidi for both Road (Energy) and MTB (Dominators) and I can't be more content. I have no experience with Nike shoes other than trying on a pair of Carns (sp?) in a shop once.
Honestly, I would spend what I can on a pair of shoes and make sure I tried them one before I bought them - an ill fitting, poorly designed shoe will hurt you more than just about anything else on a bike.

Well, since not too many replied, i guess i will be a scapegoat for this shoe. I ordered them from nashbar for $89. Carbon sole and as they are the top of the line from adidas, i figure i cant go too wrong. I'll review it in a few weeks.

I have never used either shoe. I have had a pair of SIDI's for my mountain bike for several years now and they are the most comfortable shoe I have ever used. Best prices I have seen on them are at www.totalcycling.com. I have ordered from this company several times and had no issues.
