    help I need some new shoes

    My shimano shoes finished. I also have noticed just in this past season that after 15-20 min off riding my toes and bottom of my feet start to go numb. I want something that will help stop this, I was thinking of a pair of specialized body geometry shoes might help solve the problem. If anyone has had the same kind of thing happen to them and what worked for you would be a big help.
    It's go time

    Diadoras are the nicest shoes i've owned. For winter riding i use Lakes, and they are very comfortable. I've heard of some issues with specialized's durability, but i've never used them.

    A vote for Specialized shoes

    My Specialized shoes are very comfortable and they have taken a beating too. I have the top of the line Carbon Pro. Years ago I had the cheaper model and they felt great but were heavy. No discomfort with either pair. You save alot of weight with the carbon fiber and get a direct power transfer so I think they are with the $180 or so.

    After a few years of trying several different brands and being disappointed in one way or another, I finally bought a pair of SIDI Dominator 5 shoes. I should have bought them in the first place. In the long run I would have saved myself a bunch of money.
    I'm not very smart, but I can lift heavy things

    I had this same problem (though only with the toes) and switched to Specialized BG Comps ($120ish) and have never been happier. The Specialized toe box is wider and I'm thinking that's what solved my issue.
    I'm what Willis was talkin' about

    I have Shimano's that are god only knows how old. They still work fine (holding up decently) and I really unless I get a great deal, dont see ugprading any time soon.
    I bet they are close to 10 years old. Used multiple times a week on average.

    +3 for specialized. Not a fan of their bikes, but they know contact points. Get about two years of all-weather riding, 80-100 miles a week in a good month, out of them.

    I bought a pair of Diadora Ergos and rode them 3 times. After about 15 min of riding with them the outter part of my feet would hurt like crazy. I tried different pedals and moved the cleats around, to no avail.

    I just bought a pair of Specialized's and have only ridden with them once, but it was a little over 2 hours of riding and hiking and the feet were still happy at the end.

    If you want Diadoras and have size 12 feet let me know
