I have bought my first mountain bike. I am a 68 year old male. I am not going to be doing jumps or anything like that, just want to ride forest trails and get some exercise. My bike has flat pedals with no clips/straps for securing the shoes.

Two questions

1) Which of your better quality shoes would be suitable for my use?

2) My shoe size is 9.5 US. Your shoes all appear to be European sizes and jump from 9.3 to 9.7. Which size am I more likely to need?

Thanks for your help.
