When you ride your bicycle you are transferring energy from your feet to the pedals and that energy propels your bike forward. That’s why buying the correct footwear to use for riding is an important decision and there are many factors you need to keep in mind while shopping.
Remember, your shoes must fit well and feel like they’re an extension of your foot. The shoes you buy for walking or running need extra room in the toes to allow for the rolling motion of your foot. Not so with cycling shoes. Also make sure they grip your heel and the middle part of your foot firmly once they are fastened on.
