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:
