Coleção: Why do my feet hurt in cycling shoes?

There could be several reasons why your feet hurt in cycling shoes:

  1. Improper fit: Cycling shoes should fit snugly but not too tight. If your shoes are too small or too big, they can cause discomfort and pain. Ensure that your shoes are the right size and width for your feet. Choose shoes with multiple adjustment points to fine-tune the fit. Laces are far superior in this area compared to ratchet or strap systems. This is the reason that many of the World Tour pro peloton are moving back to laces.
  2. Pressure points and breathability: Synthetic microfibre uppers and seams inside the shoe can cause discomfort or pain.  Look for shoes with smooth interiors, fully breathable uppers and use materials which can conform to the shape of your foot (Hint - Natural leather!) Consider wearing cycling-specific socks to minimize friction. Our shoes are constructed with full length panels from the finest grade full grain leather and have padded tongues and fully lined interiors. Breathability is key to eliminating 'hot foot'.
  3. Lack of arch support: Some cycling shoes come with minimal arch support, which can lead to foot pain, especially on longer rides. Consider using aftermarket insoles or inserts with better arch support to provide more comfort and reduce strain on your feet. The insoles on our shoes are removable to allow the fitment of custom insoles.
  4. Stiffness of the sole: While stiff soles are desirable for efficient power transfer, excessively stiff soles or shoes not designed for your riding style can cause discomfort. Look for shoes with the right level of stiffness for your riding preferences. All of our soles are engineered to provide the perfect balance between superior comfort and performance. Contrary to much misleading hype, studies have proved that beyond a certain point, increasing stiffness does not increase power transfer.
  5. Poor cleat positioning: The position of your cleats on your cycling shoes can significantly impact foot comfort. If the cleats are positioned incorrectly, it can lead to discomfort or pain, especially in the arches or ball of the foot. Adjusting the cleat position might help alleviate this issue.
