About Cycling Shoes

Cycling shoes are shoes designed for cycling but differ from traditional shoes in that they attach to a compatible clipless pedal, increasing the efficiency of your pedaling effort. They have stiffer soles and feature dial closures or hook-and-loop straps. Bike shoes should fit snuggly and prevent any slippage.

How to Choose Cycling Shoes

As you decide how to pick cycling shoes, the first consideration is if you'll be riding on road or trail. For road cycling shoes, look for lightweight construction and good ventilation. The usually come with either 3-hole or 2-hole cleats. Common compatibilities are SPD, Look and Crankbrothers. Find road cycling shoes for women and men.

If you're mountain biking, you can use clipless mountain bike shoes or mountain bike shoes for flat pedals (also called platform pedals). Clipless MTB pedals are made with recessed cleats, making them easier to walk in. They're best for non-technical and cross-country riding where pedal efficiency matters. Consider shoes for flat pedals if you'll be getting on and off your bike or doing technical riding. Find mountain biking shoes for men and women.

For riders looking just to move about town or commute, there are also casual cycling shoes that look more stylish and are easier to walk in. If you plan to bike in wet weather you can also add a shoe cover.  Find casual cycling shoes for men and women.
