Besides saving money on gas and getting more exercise every day, your new habit also gives you the excuse take advantage of the expansive range of commuting kit that's become available in recent months.

Good shoes, but better options
Preface: I was looking for a 3 bolt shoe that did not make me look like Lance Armstrong. These were listed as 3 bolt, but they are not. I'm guessing it has since been fixed.
Any who. I did try them on and they are a cool looking pair of retro looking shoes. You can def walk around in them; ie grab something from grocery store after ride, but not a walk around the park. I have wide feet and wear size 11 in the US. I purchased the 46 and they fit fine. I'd imagine they would fit better after breaking in, too.
