Cycling Shoes Recommendations

lane

Veteran
My cycling shoes need replacing after many years of service. I use SPD and prefer ones I can walk in. I don't like laces. I think I have quite wide feet. Don't want to spend a fortune. Any suggestions?

I think it would be best to be able to try them on in a shop but don't think shops round here would carry much range. Unless anyone can also recomend a good shop in Notts / Derby area.

thanks

...budget?
No laces = Velcro presumably
Foot size?

If buying online, just check they have free delivery and returns, eg Wiggle or click & collect eg Halfords or Evans

Or there’s a Decathlon in Nottingham

Foot size 8 to 9
Velcro
Budget £50 maybe but could go more if I thought it was worth it. Think I paid more for my current ones.

NorthWave used to have some spectacularly comfortable SPD trainer-style shoes for wide feet. BIke shoe sizing is an absolute mystery. If you buy online, make sure the retailer has free returns.

OK as I say could pay more for the right shoe if Inhave to. Also wondering if anyone has experience with wider foot?

Advantage of Decathlon is can probably try them on.

I have wide feet and find that Diadora and North Wave shoes tend to run true to size.

A couple of points on Velcro -
- I had one pair and the Velcro stopped gripping after a few years, but otherwise the shoes were still OK
- another pair I had with Velcro, I found that after a while, the thick Velcro strap got bedded in at the same point, making it harder to give it an extra tight grip when needed

- must prefer shoes with a rachet type fastening, that can be "micro" tightened as needed depending on the thickness of socks worn

Whatever, don't fall for cheaper WHITE shoes in the sales - you'll regret. Better to buy dark coloured at the full price.
 
Good Morning,

I have been using Aldi Cycling Shoes for the last few years and have had good results.

Clearly these do need waiting for and I don't remember seeing them last year, did anyone else notice them?

I have also had acceptable, but not much more than that, results from Muddy Fox (Sports Direct) clothing.

The only caveat is that I ride SPD shoes without cleats/shoe plates and use clips and straps. :-)

Bye

Ian
