Best shoes under $200.(2 posts)

Best shoes under $200.GMS
Sep 8, 2002 3:02 PM
What are some opinions on the nicest shoes under 200 dollars? I don't race, but I do like to go fast and want a stiff shoe.

I've been trying to decide for ages, I don't have any shops in the area to try high-end shoes on, and I have more questions than can reasonably be asked in one post.

Sidi Energy 2's apparently have a feature where they automatically disassemble while riding. By the way, is this the same shoe as "Sidi Energy 2002?" Totalcycling.com has black Energies listed as this, but I don't know if this is some older Energy... I thought they only came in weird colors.

I have also looked at (well, not physically, of course) Genius 4's and Shimano R150s, but know nothing about the relative stiffness or comfort of these shoes.

I just need them to do SPD and Look bolt patterns, which pretty much all shoes do.

Thanks a lot.

I found them on ebay for $109 the price everywhere else is $179. The Carbon sole is stiff and the shoe is like wearing a slipper, the best shoe I have ever worn.
