|In the market for a pair of road shoes and according to size charts only Sidi makes them in my size (49). Performance wants $180, is this the best I can expect to find?.

|You will need to check with one of the overseas retailers such as www.totalcycling.com or www.xpedia.co.uk. Stock up on tires/tubes to make the shipping worth while.|

|Thanks, I already tried totalcyling and a few other overseas links posted here but they did not list my size. I usually have no reservations buying from overseas, but for shoes which need to fit properly I wouldn't want to deal with the cost of international shipping back and forth until I found the right fit.|

|I needed the 1/2 size increment which isn't offered overseas (at least that I could find). So I used the Performance 20% off coupon and bought stateside. Not too bad a deal.

|Thanks for the links, their prices are great, but they don't list my size. I guess I could try calling them direct to see if they have it.
I e-mailed the ebay seller "bitz4bikes" but he doesn't currently have any genius4s in my size up for auction.
The 20% off at Performance seems like the best bet right now as they have my size in stock and it should be easier/faster to do exchanges if the first choice doesn't fit. Where or how do I go about getting such a discount?.
I have a good idea of the size I need based on a pair of 49 Sidi motorcycle boots I have, but I don't know the width of their road shoes. I have a "D" width foot and I am not sure if I need the MEGA version of the Genius4. I am new here so I will figure out which forum would be the best to poll Genius owners.
The local bike shop didn't have anything in my size for me to try on, and I don't feel right having them order some, just so I can try on and not buy.

|I ended up with one size for the Sidi Dominators and another for the Genius 4's.

|I think they are done for the time being. The one in Outside magazine stopped on 9/1/2002.|

|I purchases Sidi Genius 3's last years model from total cycling.com for $70 + 22 shipping. After I ordered the shoes through there website I got an email telling me that they do not have the Sidi 3 in stock but will upgrade me to the 4's for no charge. The regular price for the 4's is $107 plus shipping. IT takes a week to come to the states, great service.|| |
