Who doesn’t already have enough shoes, right? People tend to get frugal with footwear, but they’re often doing themselves a disservice. Afterall, your shoes transfer all that leg effort into your pedals thousands of times per ride, and that makes comfort and fit important. Everyone who has invested in a premium pair knows how valuable that connection is. A good solid shoe will last longer and make you perform better.
Be sure to try your new shoes with as thin a sock as possible. Cycling socks tend to be very thin. This helps to prevent chafing and encourages a more efficient energy transfer.
