Cycling Shoes Buying Guide

The type of cycling shoes you choose used depends on the type and intensity of your cycling. Some of the key features found in these shoes are stiff soles that provide efficient energy and weight transfer while pedallin.

Types of Cycling Shoes

Cycling shoes come in four types of types:

  • Road racing: Road racing shoes are specific to compete in rough terrains like concrete in races. These shoes have an extremely rigid, smooth and inflexible sole, bent slightly at the ball of the foot to allow transfer of power and body weight, focused on one particular point.
  • Touring: When you find out that you have to walk during pit stops in between races or when you intend to tour an area in foot as well, touring shoes come in handy. These shoes are designed effectively for both walking and cycling by sacrificing some rigidity for traction with additional treads and a recessed cleat.
  • Mountain biking: These shoes have recessed cleats with studs along the soles to aid the rider in travelling and negotiating on difficult mountain terrains.
  • Spinning: These shoes are a hybrid of road and touring shoes, designed with a firm sole and limited traction to maximise comfort and breathability.
