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
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.
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:

- Upper Material: synthetic leather
- Footbed: molded EVA with medium arch support
- Cleat Compatibility: 2-bolt mountain
Whether you're looking to test the waters of trail riding or have been shredding dirt for years and just need to replace your worn out old shoes, the Giro men's Carbide R Shoes are right on point to tackle the trail. With molded EVA footbeds for a comfy fit, a rugged outsole, and Giro's signature aesthetics, these shoes cut a clean line through the dirt and mud with style that won't get funny looks at the post-ride pizza gathering. The Carbide R features a comfortable, supportive footbed to cradle your feet and reduce fatigue. A co-molded nylon and rubber outsole provides oodles of traction and stiffness for effective power transfer while keeping the cost down compared to the high price of carbon-soled options. The upper is made of breathable synthetic leather with three hook-and-loop straps that provide a comfortable, customized fit without any irritating pressure points. To cap it all off, pre-drilled holes under the toes accommodate toe spikes for added traction during hike-a-bike situations and extra gnarly trails.
- Upper Material: microfiber, mesh
- Footbed: molded EVA insole with medium arch support
- Cleat Compatibility: 3-bolt road
In the search for a solid, streamlined, road-racing shoe, it's easy to feel like you need to drop a month's rent just to get what you want. Giro solves that dilemma with the Men's Apeckx II Shoes. The Apeckx II features top-end technology, race-quality stiffness, and comfort in an affordable package that won't leave you fueling rides with nothing but noodle soup until your next paycheck. The main difference between the Apeckx II and Giro's more expensive shoes lies in the sole. Giro utilizes DuPont Zytel nylon in the place of the Easton carbon fiber in shoes like the Empire and Factor. Compared to carbon, Zytel provides similar stiffness, power transfer, and durability without the sky-high price tag. An EVA footbed with medium arch support will fit the majority of riders, but Giro's SuperNatural Fit Kit is available separately if you want to dial the fit a little further. The Apeckx II's closure system consists of a middle hook-and-loop strap that snakes through a mid-foot D-ring for excellent adjustability in tandem with a ratcheting buckle on the top strap. The middle strap essentially turns the entire panel of inner fabric into an extension of itself, eliminating pressure on the metatarsal bones by pulling equally from a large swath of material on the inside of the foot. The bottom strap adjusts the fit around the toes independently of the other straps for a comfortable ride every time you clip in.

- Aegis anti-microbial treatment, Weight: 290 grams(size 42)
As you head out for your next shop ride or weekend sportive, keep your feet content and your pedal stroke efficient with Giro's Treble II Shoes. With a simple, classic design and versatile two- or three-bolt compatibility, the Treble II shoes offer comfort and functionality at a wallet-friendly price. Constructed with a breathable synthetic upper, the shoes use three hook-and-loop straps along the forefoot to allow you to customize the fit before your ride and to make quick fixes once you're in the saddle. Inside the shoes, Giro adds a molded EVA insole to promote efficiency during your pedal stroke by supporting your arches and adding cushion while an Aegis anti-microbial treatment works to hold onto that new-shoe smell for as long as possible. The injected nylon outsole will provide you with stiff, efficient power transfer whether you're working through a grueling spin interval set or trying for a PR on your favorite climb.
