A post last week included a question from a reader about the need for special bike shoes for non-competitive riders who mainly cycle for fitness. Here's a related question for you:
The answer is that for me personally it depends on which bike I'm riding, because I have four. Yes, I am a bike nerd. I don't wear bike shoes on my commuter bikes because of frequent stops and starts in traffic, nor on my mountain bike because of the need to keep my feet free when I go sailing off the trail or fall down in a mud hole. But I do wear the lock-in bike shoes on my road bike because of the types of longer distance rides I do on that bike with relatively few stops.
Why do you wear what you do on your feet? Comment below.
