    SSFG Shoes

    This was going to happen sooner or later. I'll get the ball rolling:



    Just under the cost of 2 Kilo TT's!

    I like these but I think they're supposed to be for cyclocross.

    And these are awesome if you have five friends and you want to look like some kind of fruity bike gang:

    Skechers are good enough

    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    I would totally be in a fruity bike gang with my friends and wear those shoes.

    I have these Tsubos, which everyone thinks are cycling shoes. (They're not.) I do wear them almost nonstop in warm seasons when I am riding my bike with toe clips.



    I also bought a pair of Tigers but it's been too crappy out to wear them. Will have to wait until spring I guess.



    I've been wearing these boots in the fall/winter and they work surprisingly well. The leather is flexible so they don't constrict my ankles, and they are totally waterproof. The toe box is slim enough to fit into toe clips with no problem.

    I think those are designed off of Keirin racer's kits.

    Tigers are super comfortable, light, slim, breathable, good for clips and straps, some good designs but they seem to fall to pieces pretty fast. I've blown through half a dozen pairs of the Ultimate 81s already, but they're cheap so I don't mind. The last pair I got were leather uppers instead of cloth and they're holding up better, but they're not as comfortable by a longshot. Tend to overheat the feet.

    Those boots look like they'd be good for outrunning vampires.

    I am aware, but Keirin teams are not buying these. I actually do kind of like them to be honest, I'd wear the 2s or maybe the 3s. Like, if someone gave them to me. Nobody's gonna see the damn number when they're laced up anyway.

    Back in the early 90's when I wore laceless vans and used clips, I couldn't do it together because I would often pull my foot out of the whole shoe. And that was with a cartridge. I can't imagine it working fixed.

    I've really grown to love these, despite how wide they are

    those converse I find really bad for any mileage above 10 if you're riding brakeless. I definitely start getting some numbness with them

    Hey, you didn't say non-clipless.
    The quintessential SSFG shoe. Not only do they work well/fit comfortably, you also get a heaping bonus of street cred.

    Also, you get to walk like a tapdancing duck. Or constantly carry spare shoes.

    I stand corrected. I didn't know Sidi's thing was SPD clips in road shoes. Cool.

    And these feel good other than their flimsy sole.

    I was just thinking about how I hate feeling my pedal through sambas (or any other shoe) while on rides. Time for actual road shoes, me thinks. Competetive cyclist has magic ones on sale too!
