Got Wide Feet? These Cycling Shoes Will Make Your Rides Way More Comfortable
Whether you’ve recently invested in an indoor exercise bike or you prefer to plug (or should we say clip?) into the natural beauty of the world by cycling outdoors, you need the right gear to get the most out of the experience. And it all starts from the ground up. You’ll need footwear that fits—and width is just as important as length.
In fact, according to a review published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Research, over 60 percent of participants didn't know their correct shoe size, which is a major contributing factor behind foot pain and disorders.
So, what to look for in cycling shoes for wide feet? When trying them on, they should feel comfortable in the widest part of your foot. Keep in mind that unlike your fave running shoes, cycling shoes won’t stretch as much as you wear ‘em. However, if the toe box feels a little snug, that’s normal—as long as it’s not uncomfortable.
Below, we rounded up five highly-rated cycling shoes that reviewers claim are comfortable for their wide feet.
