"What am I on...?" Series Continued

Slowly I am catching up... THANKS for stopping by and reading! Currently I have "1 Official Follower" signed up through Blogger... I sure hope that many of you out there are reading my rambles and "Un-Officially" I can say that I have more than one reader... I guess that I can only hope.
So, making our way up from the bottom to the top we already covered my running shoes, so next up it is time to talk about my cycling shoes.

In my opinion your cycling shoes can be a deal breaker when you are attempting to dial in your riding style. For a number of years I used a brand and I felt comfortable...imagine me shrugging my shoulders as I say comfortable... in the shoes. However, I had the feeling that I could improve my experience with a better pair. So, I did some research and thanks to the fantastic help from my friends at DPM SPORTS I found a shoe that completes my riding experience.
The Spiuk CASTA Triathlon shoes are a dream. The extra stiff sole makes all the difference for me. Not sure why but I feel that in each pedal stroke the power transferred from my leg to the bike is much more efficient and less fatiguing. Over the years I've only used triathlon specific shoes so I am used to the one big strap and on the CASTA the grip of the one strep is very strong to keep that smooth rotation of the pedal stroke.
I am very pleased with the performance of this shoes. Last year I began to use them and I have to confess that while on the bike they are on and the enjoyment is topo notch.

So, what else do I need to complement both my running shoes and cycling shoes...? The answer is SOCKS... looking through the web I found these...
What do you think? Should I make the investement? Would I look good in knee high tube socks? I believe that is up for debate... even I need to warm up to the idea of tube socks before I take the plunge. They would be a grand eye catcher for sure... but are they too much?

Your comments on these issues are appreciated. I will take all the help that I can get...

Thanks for reading,

The Clot Buster
