  • Type of cycling: Choosing the correct shoes for your go-to type of cycling is key to getting the most out of your cycling shoes, whether it be mountain biking, road cycling or a spin class.

  • Closure system: Classic laces, velcro straps, ratcheting buckles and more; there are many types of closure systems so choose whichever is most convenient for you.

  • Fit and size: Fitting your cycling shoes correctly is key for comfort and efficiency while peddling; follow sizing guidelines or better yet, try them on in store to ensure you’re getting the best fit for you.

  • Cleat compatibility: Ensure your cycling shoes are compatible with your pedal system by matching it with the cleat pattern in the product description.
