A compromise is usually made between a stiff, efﬁcient cycling shoe and a practical shoe for walking; these well-cushioned shoes, with Vibram soles, fall ﬁrmly in the latter camp.
With good support, they’re great for short rides – or multi-modal journeys – but as the miles increase, the ﬂex in the sole soon becomes tiring. Also, with SPDs ﬁtted, the cleats feel exposed – another millimetre of tread would solve this.
The tongue is narrow, leaving gaps where it meets the uppers. Sizing is small, so consider going up a size. Available in a range of colours.
