    Anyone know much about Exustar shoes? They look pretty good but i have no idea on the quality.

    They are Chinese/Taiwanese rip-offs of the Shimano shoes, exustar pedals are the same.

    I doubt the fit/quality are near that of the shimano shoes....

    If you are ordering from the US, and want cheaper prices, check out some UK based online shops, like totalcycling.com.

    Complete total rubbish. Exustar shoes can be had off performance/nashbar. As a cheap pair of road shoes, they are decent. Expensive shoes can fit just as bad as cheaper shoes.

    Try them in in a store if you can. It's nice of people to generalize something in which they have absolutely no experience with.

    I fitted a pair of Exustar MTB shoes. They fit me very well, they looked very nice, but I was looking for the road shoe (the 221). IMO the most important thing is fit, so as long as I can't try them on, I will not buy online.

    As for quality, as I understand it exustar are people that formerly worked for VP components. I'm a fan of VP pedals, in my experience they are pretty indestructible. So I've ordered a pair of their PR70Ti road pedals. Look compatible (which I need), very nice aluminium polished/anodized body, ti spindle. And very light. Got it on Ebay Germany for very little. They look and feel impressive, but I still have to use them.
    So far I have no quality misgivings about the Exustar products, but I would go for their top of the line products. Have a look at their website.

    -Can you re-read what I said? I said "I doubt".....Its an educated guess, not fact. Based on my experience, Chinese/Taiwanese knock-offs of this type (shoes) are not as nice in terms of build quality/fit. Moron.

    I have a pair of Exus mountain bike shoes (name now changed to Exustar - same company/shoes). Had 'em for a year now and still in good condition, i.e. quality is good. Fit okay. Nothing fancy to look at. 3 velcro straps, no ratchet system. Cheap price; about USD25 in the Philippines. So I reckon they are excellent value for money.

    I bought a pair of the road shoes from performance 6 months ago.

    I am content with the fit and the price. No complaints.
