I bought mountain bike shoes last month and had to get them (a particular model) from the U.S. because my size was sold out everywhere in Canada. I'm not sure if more gear will come in but I'm trying to think now about any outdoor gear I might want in 2021.

Well... I do own a second pair of road shoes but without any carbon. I guess they'll do in the meantime...

That’s not how this works.

Is taking footwear advice from Super a good or bad move? I have a feeling I will end up with an even bigger shoe collection.

A lot of the carbon ones have short useful life spans so you may want to reserve them for big workouts and races. It’s easier to do if you have a few other pairs on hand. I just picked up another pair designed for long runs. It’s only a problem if you want to stop and can’t.

Super by road shoes I mean cycling roadies. I will look at getting the carbon running shoes when I get in good enough shape that the extra will really help!
