Cycling Shoes - What To Wear When Riding Your Bike


One of the nicest things about cycling is that it's generally possible to do it in your normal clothes without spending ages gtting changed, or messing around with gadgets and pieces of kit. There is however one exception - regular cycling wears out your shoes very quickly, and for this reason it's best to wear specialist cycling shoes whenever possible.

The reason why cycling is hard on shoes, is that your feet need to grip the pedals, and this grip tends to tear aware at the soles of your shoes. Thus you'll find it's a false economy to "save money" money by buying sneakers and cycling in those.

Aside from durability, there other reason to choose specialist cycling shoes if possible. Cycling shoes are designed to support the whole of your foot's sole, and this avoids you getting sore patches at the places where the pedals touch. Additionally, cycling shoes have stiffer soles than regular shoes or snickers, and this allows you both to pedal more efficiently, and also helps the blood flow freely in your feet, which will help keep you warm in cold weather, and cool in hot weather.


Clipless Pedals

Once you have become a regular cyclist, one of the things that you may wish to look into is clipless pedals. These require special shoes with metal cleats on their soles: your feet are then able to lock securely to the pedals, although you can receive instant release (for example in an emergency) by simply twisting your feet.

Shoes and cleats from different manufacturers are generally interchangeable so you can mix and match your choice of gear. In general, there are two bolt holes recessed in the sole of the shoe, and the cleat attaches to this. However, cleats and clipless pedals are generally sold together and only work in specific combinations - so for these you cant mix and match.

Here are some cycling shoes:

  • Footbed: Fizik Cycling Insole
  • Cleat Compatibility: 3-hole road
Product Description:
While the Fizik R1 Uomo shoes are some of the most comfortable, high performance shoes we've worn, they may be a little pricey for riders who want comfort but who aren't rolling to that start line on a regular basis. For this reason, Fizik introduced the R5 Uomo Boa Men's Shoes. While they aren't sewn from kangaroo leather, the R5 uppers are highly breathable Microtex fabric with nylon mesh windows for ventilation. Inside of the uppers is Fizik's Superlight Insole that supports your arches and absorbs road vibration. The uppers are placed on a carbon-reinforced nylon outsole that allows efficient power transfer while remaining on the lower end of the carbon cost spectrum. The stack height is low and the outsole is engineered to drive power to the pedals while remaining flexible enough for comfort on long rides. A molded heel cup helps to keep your foot in the ideal pedaling position while minimizing heel slippage. To secure the shoes to your feet, the R5 Uomo use the Boa closure system. Consisting of a single dial with a continuous loop, it is micro-adjustable for the perfect fit. A hook-and-loop closure at the forefoot adds a separate adjustment point to keep your toes happy.
