    Cycling - Specialized fit me best.
    Running - Saucony are my favourites.

    Gorgeous that Maria is, I think my choices are all down to foot shape really.

    Off the bike my favourites are whichever look good and they have cheap in TK Maxx. I'm not a label person, and in fact try to avoid wearing the hyped big brands.

    Saying that though, on the bike I've just changed shoes. My old Shimano shoes smell like they've been living in a dog kennel for a couple of years, so I've just bought a pair of Specialized Sonoma shoes. They look very nice and fit well so far. And I found a place on t'internet where they were £20 off rrp.

    Cycling shoes, Ihave recently bought some Sidi ones and they are comfortable but here in Vietnam I still use my Shimano Carbon Reinforced and find them OK. For running I usually buy Nike but there does seem to be many others on the market that are not well known names but look very good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I now have a pair of Nike spd walkable roadshoes and they are superb. I bought them because they are availble in a size 49 unlike many other shoes. They are great on the bike and ok off the bike. I would not want to walk for miles in them (especially if it's a shoppong trip with the Mrs!) but they are comfy enough for the odd trip to the pub or...more importantly pushing a loaded tour bike up a pig of a hill occassionally. :blush:

    I wear Diadora SPDs on the bike. They look and feel great.

    Nike have/had an ID thingy on their site where you can design trainers and get them made for a fair bit of money. It's good to play with and you can get writing on the heels. I'd love to get someone a pair with something disparaging wrote on them. :blush:
