Men's Cycling Shoes

Men's Cycling Shoes

Whether you are riding for leisure, commuting or racing to the finish line, make sure you are comfortable and prepared with a pair of men's cycling shoes. There are a variety of shoes available designed for cycling on the road, for mountain biking or triathlon, as well as for training.

The keen cyclist can choose from different brands as well as a choice of colours and styles. Qualities to look out for when selecting a cycling shoe include ventilation, the type of fastening you would prefer, the material of the sole and the compatibility with different types of cleats, which attach your shoe to the pedal.

Shimano 'RT33' cycling shoes are ideal for all day riding, commuting and mixed use riding. The shoe's recessed cleat area means you can also walk in them without wobbling. They have double Velcro straps and a reinforced midsole. Shimano has also produced the 'MT34' which is suitable for mountain biking. It is made of stretch resistant and lightweight breathable mesh with synthetic leather panels. It has a thick EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) upper for improved shock absorption and durability, with a rubber tread which gives added grip for walking. The cleat shank is reinforced with glass fibre and it has reflective detailing to keep you more visible in low light.

An alternative mountain biking shoe is the Giro 'Rumble VR SPD Clipless MTB,' which is a versatile shoe made from supple, breathable microfibre and mesh with high tech rubber soles for improved grip and durability. Muddyfox has produced the 'RBS100' men's mountain biking shoe with two hook and tape fasteners, a cushioned insole and padded ankle for more comfort and the mesh panels help to improve airflow.

For road racing there is the Fizic 'Uomo R3B' cycling shoe, which is hand crafted in Italy. A stylish cycling shoe which is comfortable and lightweight, the carbon sole promise to help the rider achieve the best in cycling efficiency. The material of the upper shoe is made from laser-perforated Microtex which is lighter than leather, is durable and performs well in wet conditions. They are breathable and easy to clean.

You might prefer the Mavic 'Aksium' road cycling shoe, which is an endurance shoe. The outer sole is made from fibreglass and nylon to give the shoe a rigid structure that helps the rider to hold on tightly to the pedals. These shoes are fastened with three Velcro straps and the 'Ortholite' inner sole gives good cushioning and comfort.
