    Shoes for spinning?

    Hi - Can anyone please recommend a shoe for spinning (indoor cycling) that is compatible with the Reebok spin bikes? Thanks!

    Check out the Lake I/O (Indoor/Outdoor) shoe.



    Another shoe to check out is the Lake CX120.

    I'm assuming that the bikes use a pedal/cleat combination (or you wouldn't need a spacific shoe) so find out what type of pedal/cleat combination that those bikes use. It's probably SPD but you want to know for sure as some shoes work with some types of cleats but not others. You will probably have to mount the cleat to the shoe yourself as they don't come that way (at least I have never seen any).

    I don't have a whole lot of experience with spinning bikes but as I recall, most high-end spinning bikes use a standard crankarm and you can mount any kind of pedal you want. I know some gyms recommend that their students bring in their own pedals.

    Actually, most gyms don't want you changing the pedals, since one wrong move will FUBAR the threads on the crankarm. All the Cycle Reebok bikes (Tomahawks made by Freemotion) come with dual sided clip and strap/SPD pedals. Any SPD compatible shoe will work just fine. Reebok makes shoes. Try store.reebok.com and see what you can find, or get soemthing on closeout from either the big catalog stors or your LBS, since it is the end of the season.

    Shimano makes a 'ladies specific' spinning shoe, the SH-FN01W. Click the link below for the Shimano website:

    Hi,
    any cycling shoe will work; assuming this is a typical spinning cycle with
    dual sided pedals that accept Look on one side and SPD on the other.

    I suggest getting a SPD compatible shoe, it's much easier to walk in them.

    As is the case with shoes, you need to try them to see if they fit. The nature of cycling is that you are pressing forward, then pushing down, pulling back and then pulling up. You don't want your foot to slide around in the shoe so it needs to fit like a second skin.

    Which is why you really need to get a really good fit...
