Choosing and Adjusting Bicycle Shoes and Pedals

Sheldon Brown may be gone, but his website is still active and growing. Here’s an article with more information about shoes and pedals than you likely wanted to know. While you are there check out the rest of the site. You’ll be glad you did.–Corrie

I’ll be making shoe recommendations in connection with different kinds of pedals, but first here’s some quick advice.

Feet swell a bit as you stand and walk on them. If you ride your bicycle to go buy shoes, you may find them too small after you have been walking. Buy shoes a bit large, or go for a good long walk before trying them on. If you will be wearing the shoes for winter riding, you also might want to leave enough room inside for two layers of wool socks.
