Pink is kind of my thing. Breast cancer in the family, yadda yadda.

I want some pink road shoes. Everything I find is for women or not really available in the US. (DMT D5, etc)
Anyone know of any I'm just not finding?

Sidi did some Wires in Fuschia a year or two ago, I always regret not getting some and keep an eye out for a pair.

Just wear womens shoes. What size are you? If it fits, it fits. Your foot is likely higher volume and has a different arch, so maybe try it with a
" U.S. Army study found significant differences in arch shape, arch length, the big toe, and ball of the foot. Women, had a wider forefoot than men as well as… shorter arch length, and shorter toe bones."

For "men" - Sidi Wire Vent Carbon Push Fuchsia; Laced shoes -use Giro Empire laces ; Sworks 6 (ebay); Boa shoes, change the Boa knob; custom Lake shoes.

I'm 100% okay with wearing women's shoes. The problem is fit. I can do a conversion, but I'll have no way to try on without buy-and-try, and returns are a hassle, especially when it's a since size 40 at some small online shop.

Most bike shoes you should by the CM measurement. Also, most shoe brands use the same last for everything, so you should be able to find something close.

I’d do the lace or Boa thing, so you can switch to testicular or prostate cancer too
