I bought some cheap aldi cycle shoes in there last sale just before the winter so about September. To be honest they have been great and well worth the £20, I had no problems with them at all. However in the last week or so they have suddenly started to fall to bits. I did expect this to happen sooner really.
I have started looking around for some replacement ones that were a bit more expensive but on a review that someone had put on a pair(I can't remember the sort) they said that they go through about 2 pairs a year.
Obviously it will be down to how much riding you do but it got me thinking how long do peoples shoes generally last?
