Cycling Shoe Partnerships Thread
I hope this is received in the spirit it's intended, as the thread intentions are good. This is a thread where right leg amputees can partner with left leg to pair up, buying a single pair of cycling shoes and save themselves some money. If you need this thread, post your shoe size and preference as to type, road or mountain or Triathlon shoe, and we'll see as time goes whether the idea is good or not.

If it's a good idea, we'll get some partnerships, and if not, the thread will go nowhere.

Alternatively, if you think this is a terrible idea, please feel free to PM me to let me know.

YA Tom! I think this is a great idea. Time will tell :)

I will reserve a spot in this. Currently I have no need of one, but if my new cycling pylon works out I will not be needed left shoe for cycling any longer.
I wear size 11.5-12 and use MTB shoes. I will let you know if I have one available or have need of a right shoe to wear.

Wonderful idea.

I am missing my first three toes on my right foot and the last two are hammered and sticking almost straight up. I wear a sz 10, but this leaves a big gap on the right foot between what's left of my right foot and the end of the sandal. I have to wear Shimano spd sandals because of my hammer toes. I need a size 8 Shimano sandal if anyone knows of a spare or no longer used one.

while I fortunately do not need it, I think this is a GREAT idea, even tho it is 5 years old, geez i really gotta learn to check those dates... sooo did this work out for folks?

I subscribed, to no avail. Due to prosthetic leg and no toes on other foot, I always have to buy two pair of shoes. No one ever responded.

The starter of this Forum And this thread, Tom, passed away a couple years ago..

Expensive but there are a few Custom bike shoe Makers .. Maybe a good price can be negotiated for the
foot without toes . *

does the Prosthetic have to do more tasks so resemble a natural foot?

* I have a friend in town with half a foot, getting your foot caught in a loop of a line on the deck of a fishing boat , can do that, quickly.
