    Giro Trans v. Sidi Zephyr

    I know shoes need to fit your feet well and feel good. I was buying new shoes today. My old shimano road shoes have had it. I bought both, the Giros and the Sidis, because I didn't want to spend any more time in the store making up my mind (I was hungry). I plan on returning the pair I don't pick and the shop was cool with that. Anyways...I haven't put cleats on either yet and feel like I need to pick soon. I have tried both on and they both feel good. I like the ratchet system on the Giro better though. I know the Giro shoes are relatively new so there might not be a lot of experience with them for durabilty and such. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    One more things to consider....The Sidis were on clearance. So they are less than half the price of the Giros.

    Anyone with experience with either shoe? Durability? Comfort? Anything else I should know?

    I had the Sidi Zephyr for a few days and returned it. I prefer a ratchet over velcro as it couldn't keep my heel in place without over tightening and cutting off circulation.
