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

NorthWave Core Plus Shoes Black Red
Great comfortable shoe
Bought these to replace the older version that had worn out after a couple of years continuous use. They are really comfortable as my feet are quite wide so some are a bit tight. If these last as long as the last pair I will be extremely happy.

Incredible boots- design, quality and workmanship.
These boots are completely perfect for the purpose that they were intended, and amazing quality, these boots, if looked after properly should last a very long time indeed. read the review on the Tube by Guy Kevesten, it's spot on!

Sidi Composite Millenium 3 Replacement Heel
Bad design
Not a fault of the retailer but these aren’t that durable. Sidi should rethink or a pair of expensive shoes are rendered useless because of a couple of cheap bits of plastic!
