Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good First Bike Shoes This is my first pair of bike shoes, so I don't have anything to compare it to. That said, they are fairly comfortable and have plenty of room in the toe box. The base is pretty firm and the velcro straps work well. I bought size 47 and I normally wear a size 12 shoe. I haven't gone on any rides longer then 20 miles yet, but so far I am happy with these shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from R065 Road Shoe I was a little apprehensive about buying such an inexpensive shoe, however, I have had the shoe for a couple of weeks now and they are very comfortable. I like the ventilation on the sole, it really works, just worried about the wet season. The top of the shoe seems to wrinkle a bit when you tighten down the Velcro... otherwise this is a really comfy shoe, it works well, and the price is right. Coming from wearing a Sidi Carbon shoe... I'm impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific inexpensive racing shoes I bought these shoes for triathlon racing. They fit great, are very comfortable, and also easy to get on and off. I highly recommend these shoes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shimano R065 Bought these after my first road bike purchase due to nice price. The length was true but the fit was too deep, I could not get the shoe tight enough. I have a D/E width and find SIDI shoes very snug. The tongue was also uncomfortable. I returned and splurged on the SIDI Kaos. A nice entry level shoe if you are looking for a bargain and have a wide foot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Shoe For Fair Price Great looking shoes, simple, clean and black. They fit nice but I definitely had to size down to a 9.7 because the 10.5 had way too much room/slop in the fore part of my foot. Because I had to size down, they are now a little tighter that I wanted on my big toes. We'll see if they break in or stretch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid shoe, ran smaller Normally a 44 is big on me, but had to go 45 to get a better fit

I am preparing to purchase a pair of Shimano R065 road-cycling shoes. I assume they will accept a set of SPD cleats for PD-M959 pedals. Please advise. Best Regards, Joe Ellis

Asked by: Rocketmanjoe
Yes they will accept the cleats.

What cleats do I purchase to do indoor cycling(what is compatible)? Thanks in advance. 

Asked by: Jmp413
These bike shoes can use either two (SPD) or three (SPL–SL) hole cleats. SPD is the most common. Check with the spin class instructor to be sure which will be needed:
