Shimano's range of cycling shoes are one of the best ranges of clip-in shoes available on the market. Their durable, robust design and aesthetically pleasing styles put them at the forefront of the cycling shoe world. Using a clip in shoe will always help you to perform optimally compared to using standard shoes. The momentum generated on the pull of the pedal works in perfect harmony with the push, and Shimano cycling shoes do this to the best standard around.
If you're looking at riding at a serious level, or anything that puts you above the 'casual rider' category, then a good pair of clip-ins will do wonders for your performance, and what better brand than Shimano to start off with.
It is important to choose the right shoes for your needs, and here at ProBikeKit USA we sell different types of cycling shoe, including road cycling shoes and triathlon shoes. Road cycling shoes usually feature two or three straps and triathlon shoes usually have just the one. This is due to the nature of triathlon: you'll want to open them up and get out of them as quick as possible in your transitions!
