    Mavic Shoes

    Anyone using Mavic shoes? How are they holding up? I know fit is personal, but I'm interested in durability. I want a carbon-soled shoe like Code's at around the $200 pricepoint, but I'm reading that the Giro's might not have the best durability.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    I have the Tempos and I like them over all for the ~1 season I've used them. Fit aside, I like how stiff they are, how light they feel, and the grippiness of the soles.

    The one thing I have found that I don't like is their buckle. I hit it on everything. The strap hangs through the buckle and has developed a bend from being hit on stuff, making the buckles hard to undo.
    I'm hungry

    Why don't you shorten the straps?

    I am going on my third season of Mavic Rush's. They feel like slippers compared to the Sidi's I used to wear and durability has been comparable. In fact, I like the buckle system better on the Mavic's then the Sidi's as the Sidi's buckle would lock up with tiny pebbles in there. My next pair will be Mavic, no hesitation.

    I recently bought Mavic Alpine and couldn't be happier; comfortable upper and rigid sole to minimize foot flex. They seem to be well made and durable...very happy with the purchase.

    Are Mavic's wider than Sidi's?

    Cant comment on the Sidi fit...never tried them on. I can say that, either my feet are narrow or the toe box has ample room...
