As well as amassing far too many pairs of trainers for a man of my age and condition, I also seem to have acquired way too many pairs of cycling shoes. Please help me out by taking them off my hands!
They are all the equivalent of a Euro size 43 (but a cycling shoe 43). I normally take a UK8 (Euro 42) in 'normal' shoes to give you an idea of sizing (Sidi 43s are the perfect fit for me cycling shoe wise).
Pick up from Battersea (SW8) evenings/weekends or central (WC1X) lunchtimes during the week. Posting is possible if buyer pays cost/fees. Dibs on here folowed by PM seems the fairest way to go.
First up is a pair of Five Ten District shoes (clip-in version) in Legend Ivy/Yellow colourway (i.e. green-y/blue with a gum coloured sole!). These have seen very little use (not really my style) so are in excellent condition. £35
Contestant no.2 = Vittoria 1976 classic spd shoes in black .
Good condition with little wear (one of the laces is fraying) and lots of life left. Nice shoe. £30
No.3 - Shimano RT82 touring shoes (spd).
Excellent condition - used for one trip to the Alps (around 800kms or so). No issues and a good touring shoe. £30
No.4 - Louis Garneau LA84 Signature carbon sole road shoe (3-bolt). V light, laced road shoe with a full carbon sole. I bought these second hand and only used them once.
They are in good nick, but smell slightly musty (previous owner may not have dried them out properly). Smell has faded since I got them so not as noticeable. (£20, including a £10 donation to the forum!)
Finally - my faithful pair of Sidi Dragon 2s. These were their top of the range mtb shoe back in the day and have served me well (commuting, sportives, spinning etc). They are fantastic shoes (only selling as I have upgraded to a pair of Dragon 3!).
They have scuffing to the toes, fabric tape covering a few holes in the fabric on the heels and they are on their second set of replaceable sole units (they also have some Planet X insoles)! However, still plenty of miles left - £20 (again including £10 donation to the forum)

gonna pop round his this evening.

No worries. All shoes available (apart from the SIDIs!)

How do the LGs come up on you? I tend to take a 42 in normal trainers, but I also take a 42 in Shimano shoes.
I'll take Vittorias if you are happy to post? Will pm.
@AlexD - I also take a 42 in trainers. I only used the LGs once and can't remember what the fit was like - will try them on when I get home this evening and let you know.
Vittorias arrived, condition is really good - they look better than in the photos. Many thanks!
Are the Shimano RT82 touring shoes still available? If so what size are they?
