I need shoes. I am going to buy them off the internet, maybe even ebay. But I don't know what size to get. I have found charts the give me the US size, but if my everyday shoe is a 9, what size cycling shoe should I get?
If eBay, where I got mine, I would suggest that you 1) find the pair you want, 2) go to the store (LBS) and try that pair on so that you see if the size fits you.
I got a pair of SIDI Genius 5s off eBay last year. I love them more than my kids (not really hehe), at least they are less of a bother :eek: and am glad I did step 2 cause what I thought was the right size on eBay were too small. Good luck! Hope this helps.
Ya, best to try them on in a store. Not all the companies map the Euro sizes the same. For example, I bought a size 11 Specialized road shoe and it's listed as a 44 Euro. But I just bought a pair of Shimano's for Mountain biking and they are 10.5 US and 45 Euro. Have no idea how that works :( But clearly these 2 companies size things differently.
yeah... normally i wear size 9.5 or 42 euro.... i went to buy a pair of shimanos and had to buy 44s... kind of weird
The same thing happened with me. I finally took the plunge and bought some cycling shoes. I tried on 3 different pairs in the stores with all three having different sizes. I ended up buying mine off of the internet but a little legwork probably saved me a lot of time and extra shipping costs. Especially if you are buying something off of ebay. Chances are there is no return policy. Once you get it, its yours.
good deal fellas, i'll make the trip to the store.
Speaking of Cycling shoes, Once you get them, are about any pair of pedals you buy compatible with the clips on the shoes? I have never used them just toe clips! I am thinking about getting some after all I read about power transfer and such.
the pedals should come with cleats that you attach to the bottom of the shoes that you buy...
Any advice on a brand or type of shoe that is good for someone not wanting to spend a mint on them? I really want to try cycling shoes, it sounds as if it is the way to go! Thanks in advance for your advice!
Want a slipper feel? Go SIDI. Dicho y hecho.
Check out clearance items on the catalog websites. I got some MTB shoes 1/2 off, and they always have road shoes, too. If ya just cant spend much money, look to Diadora, ya get a good value out of em.
Thanks alot guys! I appreciate the advice! Wish me success in selecting some good shoes!
