    Call me Imelda Marcos cuz I need new shoes

    I'm just beginning to shop for shoes,and though there are a few LBSs, they don't stock much for trying on. And of course whatever they do stock will be exactly what I need according to the sales person... And yes they can order anything, but so can I. So I'm thinking of trying this online, but yea I know, it's all in the fit. What I'm looking for are some shoes for less $100 and well ventilated/ drained. I'm in Florida so staying warm is not an issue. Also I have a wide foot( and a sleeping bunion...) and sweat profusely in the summer, so some of the more meshy( less rigid?) appearing ones have caught my eye. FWIW 510's in 10.5 are perfect fit, and silly Sidi sizing for moto boots requires 11.5.
    Any feedback on these brand tendencies/traits/peculiarities would be appreciated-

    http://www.zappos.com/pearl-izumi-x-...adow?zlfid=111 Too stretchy?
    http://www.zappos.com/pearl-izumi-x-...tini?zlfid=111 Or too flexy?
    http://www.zappos.com/shimano-sh-mt42nv-navy?zlfid=111 Good compromise ?
    http://www.zappos.com/pearl-izumi-se...black-true-red Hot?
    http://www.zappos.com/shimano-sh-m077-dark-grey Hot?

    Yea, I like Zappos just because of their free both ways shipping policy( which I fully exploit!). It just fosters my addiction LOL . But also was looking at these on a tip from another thread-

    http://www.blueskycycling.com/produc...tain-Shoes.htm but only in disco silver in my size...

    I have read the MTBR reviews of the ones reviewed, just looking for more input.

    Thx
