Shoes With Clips

What are some good "classically" styled shoes, with stiffer soles, that would be good for riding with pedals with clips. And by "clips" I mean cages.

Is this what you mean? Or do you want something modern with classic styling? The old ones come up on Ebay frequently, especially if you take a smaller size. Large ones can be difficult to find.

There have been numerous threads about this - have you tried the search function?

What I'm looking for is stiffer soled shoes that would be good for using with shoes with clips. Not necessarily "cycling" shoes, but shoes that would be good for walking and bicycling.I don't think I worded this right- I'm looking for something that has a "tennis shoe" look, but a stiff sole. Nothing like the Flicker search more like this:


http://i.ebayimg.com/t/Vintage-NOS-M...3N7g~~60_3.JPG



I did do a search, however, even in only searching C&V and either choosing "shoes" or "shoes" and "clips" the amount of returns is overwhelming. Sort of looking up the word "telecaster" on a guitar forum.


(I am apparently unable to post pictures- or maybe it's the whole ebay image thing...)

I have about 6 pairs of the Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 tie-ups, and I love riding with them. They have a very flat sole, which is not what I'd call really "stiff" but it works fine for me and I don't have pain from either quill or other pedals like the MKS GR9; and I always fit pedals with toe clips and straps. I have wide feet, 9.5 (43) EE, and these shoes fit snugly, but are low-profile so that they work really well fitting into toe straps. I also wear them to work all day, which also involves construction jobsites. Lots of colors, can be bought through Zappos or eBay for $50 to $80.

Adidas "Team." or "Team Adidas." They come in a wide range of uppers. I have one that is a tough nylon mesh, and another that is leather like a soccer shoe or an actual vintage cycling shoe. We would have called them "track shoes" back when I was in high school, in the late Varsity/Vietnam War/Democratic Convention era. I find them very comfortable on GR-9, Campy C-record, Lyotard Berthet, and Shimano 600 pedals, all with toe clips and straps. The leather ones are a little better for winter, not being porous mesh.

Have rubber soles but they are pretty stiff. The soles are smooth so you can slip your foot into and out of the pedal and toe clip easily, even with the strap set a bit snugly.

Treat yourself to some NOS cycling shoes on ebay from what ever year your bike (or bikes) are from.

I really miss my Avocet Touring shoes (walkable rubber soles with cleat-like grooves, steel shank).

I have TWO pairs One pair is well used the others are just getting broken in. I agree too bad they don't make them any more.

Someone in another thread mentioned golf shoes without the cleats- that's what those remind me of- and that's not a put down.

I was actually thinking of trying to go out in my Allen Edmonds wingtips, but I don't know about that.

This is something along the lines of like what I was thinking of:

The Domarti's are cycling specific shoes. I have seen one pair of the black in person and they are very, very nice. FWIW I do occasionally ride in my Cole Haan dress shoes...nice stiff leather soles.

Adidas Adi Racer. I ride with a pair whenever I'm riding my clips. They're comfortable to boot.

Zaphod will vouch for them too if he sees this thread.

I went shopping last weekend- for something totally unrelated and ended up with a pair of North Face "Scend" shoes.

They're light, comfortable, comfortable to walk in, the sole is stiff and comfortable to bike in and sufficiently 80's-y fashionable.

I'm using JOMA lozano-101 indoor soccer shoes that have an almost smooth sole. My problem was that the modern sport shoes have too much height and width and big lug pattern to the sole and they don't fit into my Christophe toe clips and Campy Record pedals.

Here is the model I bought at the soccer store.
