You can also mix and match the Sidis, the nerd costume and some Assos kit for some extra flash & style points:

I think I'll stick to the Raphas, thanks. :beerchug:

Got a pair of white ones this past spring and they are easily the BEST cycling shoe I've worn in almost 30 years of cycling. I would even pay double for them they are really THAT good!

It kills me to hear they are that good, because my stubborn hatred for all things Rapha keep me from ever considering them.

I bought and returned them. The uppers felt too thick and heavy and they looked like my dad's old golf shoes.

Can anyone confirm if these shoes have actually been ridden in a Grand Tour?!

Hehe, IamnotWiggins.
In other news, the Giro Empire is going to come in white and black too, looking better than ever. And it has "Grand Tour" credentials :D

The price of these would give me a proper hardcore wince when I absentmindedly sit down on gravelly tarmac at the top of a savage climb in the mountains, cross my legs and hear a buckle scoring, yak skin scuffing SCRUNCH!
