That is why i’ve created a list of the best road cycling shoes out there. After spending hours researching and also using cycling shoes i’ve come up with a top 10 list to help you make an informed decision when purchasing your cycling shoes.
Giro APECKX II HV Road Cycling Shoes
Giro have been supplying lightweight helmets and cycling shoes to the industry since 1985. The Giro APECKX II HV ROAD CYCLING SHOE is a classic cycling shoe style. A shoe of quality that will look good when out on the road during those long summer rides. To begin with the APECKX is a comfortable shoe in all weathers especially sureing those hot summer rides with the the welded and bonded upper results in fewer seams for reduced hot spots and improved comfort. This isnt at the ascrifice of the cycling shoe fit, this still brings comfort. This cycling shoe is stylish comfortable lightweight and durable.
Massi Argo Road Cycling Shoe
Another brand of shoe that you may not be familiar with. However I decided to include the Massi Argo Shoe based on price, being in the budget range. I don’t believe you have to spend a lot to get a good pair of shoes, and I don’t think everyone can spend over 100 so why not include a cycling shoe for less. Not to worry though, you wont be getting a budget shoe based on the style and comfort. On first impressions I see you get a well built cycling shoe, with a quality buckle and velcro fastening for added security and comfort. I really struggled to find any negatives about this cycling shoe.
Diadora Unisex Adults’ Trivex Plus Ii
This isnt the first pair of Diadora cycling shoes to appear in the reviews. I bet you thought Diadora had been left in the 80’s! Well they are in the list because they deserve to be. The shoe we will consider here is Diadora Unisex Trivex Plus. Maybe this is the first Unisex shoe we are looking it so you can buy his and hers! With speed and distance in mine these cycling shoes have been designed with technology to keep your on top performance from start to finish. If your looking for a comfortable lightweight nice fitting shoe then consider this cycling shoe. And looking at the current prices you won’t go to far wrong.
SHOE CX217 Road Carbon Boa
Are you thinking Lake? Never heard of them before thought this was all about Shimano. You maybe right in that you may not of heard of them but I want to provide variety so no more Shimano here. Lets get to know lake. They are from Evanston Illinois USA and began in 1982. They really do have a passion for cycling so you can be sure of a quality cycling shoe. Thats the ice broken lets take a look at Lake CX217 Carbon Road Cycling shoe. Again this cycling shoe provides comfort as well as performance. Comfort comes from Lakes great fitting with exact measurements, as we’ve seen some cycling shoes dont.
Shimano Women’s Wt52 Cycling Shoe
Sorry fellas this ones not for you. This cycling shoe is for the lady cyclist only. Don’t be to offended after all why should it just be about the blokes? The cycling shoe we are looking at for women cycling shoes is actually a high performance triathlon shoe, but don’t worry you don’t need to do triathlons to wear. You will benefit from the reinforced heel cup with will maintain your heel structure. The sole is hollow lightweight carbon fibre composite. So this shoe is definitely designed for comfort and performance. You may not be a triathlete but don’t let that put you off. You maybe looking for an upgrade to your current shoes. You know Shimano are a trusted brand.
Diadora Vortex Pro Road Shoes Movistar
I’d never considered that Diadora would make cycling shoes. To be honest I’ve never owned anything from Diadora before. However James from my cycling club highly recommended a pair of Diadora he thinks they are underestimated. With a look on my face he told me that the Movistar team wear diaspora. Quickly he whipped his phone out to show me and yes they do wear them. So heres a rundown of what you can expect with a pair of Diadora Vortex Pro Road Shoes Movistar. This cycling shoe has been designed for racing and provide excellent comfort and excellent breathability whilst out riding.
Next up more Shimano. I did say they were a trusted brand. With the Shimano R065 being an ideal beginner shoe for the road the SHRT82 takes your cycling shoe up another level. Shimano have added some extra pieces from the R065 road shoe. I like the Shimano SHRT82 because its a great comfortable shoe just feels great when your riding and the buckle makes it feel that extra secure and snug. This is again a great durable shoe. For your rides long or short this shoe will improve your performance. If your looking to upgrade your cycling shoes or start with a durable performance shoe then consider the RT82 cycling shoe.
Shimano R065 Road Shoe
Most people know that Shimano and cycling go hand in hand. Shimano is a brand that is trusted in cycling because of their quality and diversity. Think Shimano think gears, but no longer just gears, think shoes. The Cycling shoe we are going to talk about is Shimano R065 Cycling Shoe. These shoes are priced in budget and are the best entry level cycling shoe for the beginner cyclist. This was my first cycling shoe and I still love them. The design of the shoe provides more stability and plays a key role in providing and supporting efficient riding. A great budget shoe, with a touch of class.
