I often wear approach shoes on my bike when I am looking for a cycling shoe that I don't need to change once I get to work. Approach shoes are usually marketed towards rock climbers, but the rigid soles, highly adjustable laces, and durable uppers make them a great option for cycling without compromising comfort when walking around. Many brands make them in neutral colors or solid black, which can make them more agreeable for work than many of the bolder color schemes of cycling shoes. Happy Riding!
