I know asking what is the best shoe is the same as asking what is better, Ford or Chevy, but what I would like suggestions on is;
What do you look for in a road bike shoe besides a good fit?
This is my first pair of shoes I have ever used & I have gotten suggestions to go with a mountain bike shoe because you can walk in them without looking like a duck.
The guy at the LBS suggested I go with road bike shoes because if I plan on riding the bike long distance then I'll be riding without many stops. If I decide to do shopping then I'll ride my hybrid.
As for pedals I have read that some people get hot spots on there feet with smaller pedals. He suggested a bigger pedal so then there is more pressure on the pedal.
I plan on riding to & from work, which is 25 miles one way. Won't be every day but a couple times a week once I get my butt & legs in shape.
Planning a century ride the first of June & want to do a couple rides in the mountains for training.
So I'm looking for a good shoe, but don't really want to spend an outrageous amount if I can help it.
