Do you want to know more about cycling shoes?

Cycling shoes have a microfibre or leather upper with a sturdy and rigid outsole that, in the case of MTB cycling shoes (or MTB shoes), are designed to provide maximum traction on all types of terrain. They can be secured using velcro straps or a closing system which combines this with a micro adjustable ratchet. In both cases, a secure fit must be ensured at all times.

Both the upper part and the tongue can be perforated or have microfibre inserts for better air flow. The inner sole, in addition to having an anatomical design to adapt to the feet, should facilitate ventilation.

Bicycle shoes should also contain heel pads that do not mishapen, providing better foot stability and greater control. The reflective inserts on the back of the cycling shoes can provide greater visibility in low light conditions.

Cycling shoes are designed to optimise pedalling performance, ensuring comfort and perfect fit at all times. They are lightweight, with excellent ventilation and shape, making them the perfect tool for champions.

One of the main brands of cycling shoes is Sidi, the brand that equips the best cyclists on the scene. Figures like Ivan Basso, Joaquín Rodríguez, Alberto Contador, Vincenzo Nibali or Samuel Sánchez wear Sidi shoes.

Another leading brand in the design and manufacture of cycling shoes is Gaerne. In addition to their use of the most advanced technologies, a rigorous selection of materials and futuristic design, Gaerne brings the professionalism and experience of its master shoemakers, who infuse a handmade touch throughout the production process. A firm hand and the cleverness of someone who knows the secrets of the artisan manufacture of shoes join with the precision and ingenuity to create Gaerne shoes. All Gaerne shoes are made in the Veneto region of Italy.

Shimano also has a wide range of cycling shoes. Shimano cycling shoes are made of flexible, lightweight and comfortable synthetic leather. They combine excellent elasticity with a high restoring force, guaranteeing great durability and high resistance to abrasion. The non-slip toe lining is combined with the shoes' curved, anatomical shape which is created using their Custom-Fit technology

Not as warm as they could be
I've been looking for a pair of boots for ages and these were a great price. Unfortunately they aren't as warm as I thought they would be. I would buy a larger size so that You can get a couple of pairs of warm socks on.

Winter boots wonderland
As my 8 year old winter bike boots finally gave up I needed to look around and find a new pair. I ride road, canal towpaths and trails around Calderdale so the boots needed to be robust. Reviews pointed me in the direction of Shimano MW5 and they were spot on. Excellent closure fitting via the two Velcro bands which are easily adjustable. A solid toe box area and comfortable inner sole gives a relaxed fit. The outer sole securely gripped my flat pedals on my first 3 rides and now with my Time pedal clips fitted the boots are my go wear for the road. The insulation has kept my feet warm through a 3 hour ride at 5 degrees and despite plenty of puddles and spray my feet also stayed dry. The price on Deporvillage was an impressive 30 percent lower than the other main web based retailers. The product description was accurate, the advice on what size to get was practical and, after ordering the boots, they arrived within 4 days. I’ve happily recommended both the boot and the Deporvillage site to other riders in my bike club.

First rate shies

Sidi Gravel Shoes Black Dark Green
Sidi MTB Defender Shoes Black with White Logo
Just what I wanted...
High quality, as to be expected with SIDI, but I don’t know why they produce new shoes with the white SIDI logo on the side with black/brown marks which makes it look as though it’s dirty or has got mould on it. I want new shoes to look like new shoes, not ones that look dirty.
Shimano MW5 Dryshield MTB Shoes Black
As described
Good shoes, just as described. Kept feet warm and dry. Would recommend
