Where do you get this from?
I do my research online like most of us do and when something that is suggested peaks my interest, I will see if I can't get whatever it may be locally first at a good price. I called my local shop to see if they had the SIDI Mega Pro Carbon 5 shoes today after Wyatt963 recommended them, they did, but they quoted me $299 for them. I went down after work to try them on and found that they fit much better than my Shimano R086Ls.
I felt that $299 is too much to pay when typically you can get much better deals online, which is what I asked in my response to his post. Yes, my reply was prior to me trying them on, but whats the harm in looking for a better deal that fits my budget? I have every intention to trying on shoes prior to investing my hard earned $$ before buying them.
I also had the opportunity to try on the Northwave and Specialized shoes, but they just weren't as comfortable as the Sidi Megas.
I have yet to try any Lake shoes..
So you went to a local shop, took up their time and expertise, tried on 3 different pairs of shoes, left, and then found a better deal on-line? Is it any wonder that the LBS of the world are going under?
