Top 2 Best Road Bike Shoes Over £100 (January 2021)
Road-shoe soles are typically stiff (for maximising pedalling efficiency) and smooth (no tread equals lighter weight). Many—mostly higher-end models—utilise a triangular, three-bolt cleat-mounting pattern that’s compatible with the most common road-pedal systems—Look, imitation Look, and Shimano. Some road shoes offer a four-bolt sole compatible with ‘Speedplay’ pedals. Low- to midrange road shoes often have a two-bolt pattern, in addition to a three-bolt pattern, to also accommodate mountain bike-style cleats. This allows the rider to use dual-sided pedals (which are easier to step into) as well as pedals that have a clip less mechanism on one side and a platform on the other (for shorter rides in regular shoes).
