Product Description

When your rides see you going anywhere from the pump track to the office, we recommend our Skitch shoes. They have our ultra-grippy SlipNot™ rubber for extra traction and durability, while the plush Lollipop™ construction offers even more cushion than what's found on our 2FO mountain shoes. You'll also find hassle-free laces to "button-up" the fit, and reflective accents throughout to help boost your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.

Key Features:
  • Body Geometry sole and footbed are ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce chance of injury by optimizing hip, knee, and foot alignment.
  • Fully waterproof toe prevents water from seeping in, and it's also scratch-resistant for anyone that's riding with toe clips.
  • Reflective material used at the heel and side in order to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.
  • Slip not rubber for durability and grip.
  • Lollipop™ construction is plush and even softer than what's used on our 2FO shoes.
  • Low profile design for comfort off of the bike or when worn with jeans.
  • Full-length EVA foam for immediate and all-day comfort off of the bike
  • Lacelock™ elastic keeps laces out of chainrings.
  • Approximate weight: 550g (Size 42)

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.
