    New question here. Sub-$100 MTB shoes?

    (I prefer "race type" shoes, SPD)

    Im looking to find a sub $100 pair of good MTB shoes. I shy away from the Settes and such. Anyone have a line on an awesome deal?
    I just bought a pair of jenson USA's Answer 07 shoe deal.
    I saw someone that had the Giau's for $99.

    Anyone else seen something great?

    Depending on what size you are, they cycle thru some good shoe deals ocassionally on Chainlove. I got myself a pair of Times (MXE model I believe) with a CF sole for approx $70.

    Look on ebay for new old stock specialized shoes. I scored '08 comps for under $100 last year. Say what you want about their bikes but their mid and upper level shoes are great.

    Performance had Pearl Izzumi Quest shoes for $39.00 in the Atlanta store this weekend. I really like mine.

    Where are you? Is there a pearl izumi outlet near you? Ive also found good clearance deals at Performance stores.

    Unless I know my exact size with a specific brand, I like to try on first.

    Since you said a preference toward a "race type" shoe, I like the Lake MX235C Shoe '09 that mtnbiker72 found for you at Jenson.
    I use to ride Lakes a lot- still have a pair that won't give up- I like the full grain leather,etc. Now I am on a Northwave kick (some with the two velcro and a buckle strap configuration too, great on-the-fly adjustment).

    I can't speak to that Lake model mentioned, but they would still be the ones I would pick.

    (I looked for some high-end Northwaves on sale @ my usual sites, but they didn't have your size, and they generally run a smidge wide anyways)

    Lake shoes are average width and fit pretty true to size. I like a snug fit so a 45 with cycling socks fit me well. I would wear a 11-11.5 in an athletic shoe with a thicker sock.

    After trying on some lakes alongside of the shimano SPDs, I decided to snag a pair of the SH-MO76 Shimanos. They felt like they fit better. REI had 'em for $90+

    These shoes look pretty good by Lake. The vibram soles are a plus as they have a long tred life.

    I own a pair of Sidi Dominators, 510 Impacts and Shimano MP66's. The MP66's are a DH/4X/BMX race shoe, and they work awesome, and also CRC sells them for under $70. Win. They are BY FAR the best bang for the buck out of what I own.

    I need new shoes. I got some old heavy adidas that make my feet cramp.
    I don't have a local dealer for lake. How comfortable are they for the semi blind buy?

    I'd monitor Chainlove.com for one of the various MTB's they have daily on the site.
    Their return policy is superb if needed.
    Make sure you check what you wear in euro sizes on the major brands.
