What are cycling shoes?
Cycling shoes are pretty much any shoes you wear to pedal your bike. Nearly everyone starts off riding in their trainers, but if you find yourself heading out for longer rides or training for events, you’ll want to look into shoes designed just for cycling.
Cycling-specific shoes will help you stay more comfortable and perform your best on the bike. There are two main types of cycling shoes: flat-pedal shoes, which have flat bottoms like trainers but also have some cycling-specific features; and clip-in shoes (also known as clipless shoes) that clip directly into your pedals. There are many different styles of flat-soled and clipless shoes for different types of riding, including road riding, mountain biking and indoor cycling.
