Dilemma, Dilemma. I currently own a pair of Mavic Zxellium’s in white, and love them. Very comfortable shoes for narrow footed riders, and nice and light. The material is very breathable, which makes them great for NYC summers. On the flip side not so great for NYC winters, even with wool socks and neoprene covers. Now the dilemma, it might be time for me to get a new pair, and I was literally about to press the purchase button over at Competitive Cyclist and ding! (light bulb sound) – what about the yellow ones? With a cursory crawl around my favorite cycling sites it appears that they are pretty popular, with really good riders, like pros and top cross riders. And that is my dilemma, do I have the legs to carry off wearing a pair of yellow shoes, as they will without doubt draw peoples gaze downwards.
So my fellow gear heads, here is were I need your help. The yellow shoes, yes or no? Comments in the post please (I reserve the right to ignore all advise and buy them anyway out of pure stupidity).
