HELP Nike Hautacam owners?! I Need your feedback.James

I'm looking at The Hautacam's in place of my Sidi Genius 4's. I wear a 47 Mega and was looking towards the 48 nike...but i'm not sure how nike is with their width. What are your overall opinions on the shoes, any feedback would be great. Although I find the sidi's comfortable, The Hautacams sure look like they would be even better.

I just bought a pair of Hautacams 47; they fit my wide feet very nicely. They fit pretty snugly around the heel which I like, also. I can't compare them with the Sidis, but I know they fit me alot better than my Gaerne MTB shoes which are just a bit too narrow.

I absolutely hated mine. I wore them about three times and onto Ebay they went. The top velcro strap was very stiff and hit the front of my ankle in such a way that it actually bruised the tendon. I wear a 46 and have heard the same complaint from several people. The carbon soles are plenty stiff and the shoes are freakishly light, but they just didn't fit my foot/ankle profile proprerly.

I have a pair of hautacams and I find them a little narrow. I also have a pair of the shimano 214's that I like very much. just a little wider

I just received mine two days ago. I haven't been able to ride in them yet ( East TN Mountains....Snow). They are not the widest shoes on the market, but I just wore out a pair of Northwave Evolutions which run wide for a bike shoe, so my judgement may be way off. Supergo has a good deal on Northwaves top of the line shoe.

I wear a 47 mega in sidi (Dominators) and I was OK in a 46.5 Nike. Length and Width seem fine, but they are narrow from top to bottom.

www.Bicyclebuys.com has them for 99.99 which is great because retail is 249.99.
Unless they changed the price, I see them @129.99...jtferraro

although that still sounds like a deal. Thanks.
