    Need Help buying Shoes!

    I've been searching for a new pair of shoes. I like a racer shoe but need some traction on the bottom. I wear a 46 - 47 so a half size is good and I need a shoe that runs narrow or has a narrow size.

    My LBS only carries one model so I'll probably be buying off the dang ol internet. Help me not waste my time and $$.

    Any suggestions?

    You can hit a dozen bike shops and only see about 6 models of shoes. Weak.

    I have pretty narrow feet and I wear Pearl Izumi Quest shoes, size 42. Sorry I can't be more help.

    I think sidis run a little narrow. They also come in half sizes.

    My 661 Expert shoes are narrow, come in half sizes, and are deeply discounted on Jenson (last check, anyway).
    Now go home and get your ******* shinebox.

    Lake shoes have grippy soles but they are on the wider side.

    If you can not try them on first expect to waste a lot of time and money on returns.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
