    anyone weigh their shoes?

    Just got to thinking about my shoes, and picked them up. They feel heavier than they need to be - then it occured to me, if weight of the pedals is important, then wouldn't the weight of the shoes be just as important?

    Anyone know how light the "standards" like the Dominator, and others are compared to middle-of-the-road shoes?

    Heck, if I could drop some serious ounces per shoe, that would make sense, no?

    I don't only because thats one place I am unwilling to compromise. even if one shoe is lighter than another I NEED my shoes to be comfortable or it won't matter how light anything is. Just my opinion..

    What about socks? Rotational weight 'n all. My Capoformas are really light.

    Bwahaha!! That's a tri geek sock. But light. Sorry, I'll pay the weight penalty to not look like a tri geek.

    Doh. I actually where the Speede's. I used to never wear socks when I rode, but doing the endurance thing commando was a little rough on my feet. I started cutting the cuffs off my Sock Guy socks until they finally came out with these. I am just not a big sock fan, although I dig my orange/purple argyle Bellweather's.

    Best lightweight shoe I've ever had (and the most comfortable shoe I've ever had) is a Gaerne
    Vertical. Gaerne is barely imported into the US anymore. They still make the shoe and call it the miro now. I've horded my old yellow verticals, and I don't really ever want to part with them. Nike makes a shoe called the Alpin, which is the offroad version of the Poggio road shoe. I have a pair of Poggios that are lighter than my teamates R7's. Light shoes are amazing, like turbo for your sprint!
