Choosing the right cycling shoes.

March 3, 2014

Question:  Can you give me some advice on purchasing cycling shoes for your cycling classes? Image

Answer: A stiff-soled, breathable shoe with a recessed Shimano Pedaling Dynamics (SPD) cleat is compatible with our bikes and is the best choice for indoor cycling. Wearing a shoe that clips into the pedal improves efficiency and allows you to power your pedaling during the full circle of a pedal stroke. Spinning.com notes, “Indoor cycling shoes are specially fitted to clip into the pedals of a bicycle. This allows the feet to remain firmly affixed to the pedal, and ultimately works more muscle groups and ensures greater control.”

In addition, spinning.com recommends purchasing shoes with “strong Velcro straps to prevent slipping and to aid the upward movement of the pedal stroke,” while paying specific attention to the sole. “A stiff sole is essential as it allows a greater transfer of power between the leg and the bike.”
