You’ve got to look the part. A good bicycle is always the basis for a comfortable ride. If this activity is limited to a short trip, once a week, you can’t go wrong with an ordinary pair of shoes, but if you start to build up the kilometres, you may need an upgrade.
What is available on the market?
Well, we can all agree on the importance and practicality of sturdy recreational cycling shoes. They improve grip, provide a sturdy sole, are waterproof, etc. but where can we find suitable shoes?
There are two interesting brands when it comes to recreational cycling shoes; Northwave® and Vaude®. Both brands are good quality and adapted to the needs of both the active recreational cyclists and the passionate long-distance cyclists among us.
