Effective and a good fit

These insoles are a good fit for my specialised shoes and coincidentally also fit my Sidi winter boots. They are a good deal more comfortable and supportive than the Sidi boots original insoles too. They are very firm under foot, so expect supportive rather than soft. I am a size 9 UK and bought the size 44/45 Red insoles.

Solved hotfoot

On longer rides I had started to suffer from "hot foot". After a bit internet research, cam across recommendations for these. Used them on RideLondon, my first 100 mile ride and experienced no issues!

Less pain!

Was recommended to do cycling to improve my knee. Decided to have the bike fitted, the guy measured the foot and arches for shoes and inserts. I bought a couple of extra pairs of inserts for my everyday shoes and trainers. The difference to walking with shoes with these inserts is noticeable, it is alot less painful.

Excellent comfort

I have high arches and was suffering 'pins and needles' in my toes with shallower 'one star' footbeds. These Specialized' SL footbeds have 'cured' the problem completely. They are ideal.

Makes a big difference

Having suffered "hot foot" with my new Specialized shoes, I tried these with good effect. Just completed a 100 mile sportive with very little discomfort. I would recommend as a cost effective way of improving comfort and enjoyment.

Excellent

Very good quality and can see why others recommend them. They seem to have improved my foot pain situation somewhat (although i think my shoes are a little too small which no insert can solve!). Overall a great product and a big improvement ove the orignally supplied insole.

Comfy

I got these to replace the standard Shimano ones in my shoes, which always appear a bit under-supportive. They do the job, look pretty good, and feel like a decent quality piece of kit.In fact, I've got two pairs; one for my SPD shoes and one for my SPD-SL ones.

Do the job

Been using these BG shoe inserts for a few years now and they really help keeping my legs aligned and minimize heel rub.However I find the sl version wears out much faster than the original footbedsand the shims used to be included.

Shoes Guide

What are cycling shoes

Cycling shoes are stiffer, lighter and comfortable than casual footwear. More rigid soles help you transfer more power through the pedals which improves your performance.

A snug fit with quality fastenings keep your feet planted in the shoes to prevent rubbing, chafing and blisters. On longer rides this is key to comfort.

Cycling shoes come in two types – clipless & non-clipless.

Clipless Shoes – fix to a cleat which then clips in to your pedals. You get a firmer and more stable contact with the pedal. This improves efficiency.

Non-clipless Shoes – also called flat shoes don’t feature cleat systems and look just like casual trainers.

Which shoes are compatible with my pedals?

Before buying cycling shoes, make sure they’re compatible with your pedal’s cleat system. Most pedals use a 2 or 3 bolt cleat system.

2 bolt cleat system

Mainly on mountain bike shoes with recessed cleats. This makes walking easier. Common 2 bolt cleat systems are Shimano SPD and Crank Brothers.

3 bolt cleat system

Mainly on road cycling shoes where the cleat protrudes from the shoe. This makes walking difficult but greatly improves pedaling efficiency thanks to a firmer platform. Common 3 bolt cleat systems are Shimano SPD-SL, Time, Look and Speedplay.

Flat pedals

Flat pedals have no cleat system so you can wear any non-clipless (flat) shoes.

What type shoes are best for me?

This will come down primarily to cleat compatibility as discussed above.

Road cycling shoes

3 bolt compatibility

Road cycling shoes are low profile and fitted with a stiff nylon or carbon fibre sole. Their main function is to improve energy transfer.

You’ll find no grips on the sole as they’re not designed for walking. Ratchet style fastenings are common on entry shoes while micro-adjustable BOA fastenings offer the best fit.

Mountain biking shoes

2 bolt compatibility

More rugged and bulky than road shoes, they also come with grips on the sole so you can walk on muddy conditions. Recessed cleats are built into the sole – for off-the-bike comfort.

XC racing shoes are lighter with stiff carbon soles and minimal tread, they look like beefed up road shoes. Clipless skate shoes are loved by gravity riders thanks to a casual style, comfort off the bike and a cleat that’s placed further back on the sole for more ‘feel’.

Flat cycling shoes

Often skate inspired design. Stiffer sole with extra tacky rubber soles for traction. Great for commuting and recreational riding.

Women’s cycling shoes

Designed with a narrower heel and shallower height between the sole and upper. These shoes come in smaller sizes too.

How to prevent foot numbness

The most common cause of foot numbness is improperly fitting shoes. Check the size guide for sizing and if you're between sizes go for the next size up. This is because your feet will swell slightly so a tight shoe will contrict blood vessels, making toes and feet go numb. 

Another cause could be improperly aligned cleats. You could consider positioning cleats further back towards your heel to offer more even pressure across your foot.
