@Mars62312:  I got my first pair (Nike road bike shoes) on sale at a cycling shop, and the other (Shimano mtn bike shoes) I paid full price for at REI. I paid $100 either way. But I really think if you find some close-out sales online somewhere, you should be able to find a pair for maybe $50? Good luck!  It totally changes things to be clipped in!

I’m an advid spinner, I spin 3-4 days per week & I have a few different pair. One of the more reasonably price ones are Shimano spin shoes which can vary in cost from $70-$150. I like them because they are light weight and have a good fit. You can buy the cleats to go with them for about $25.

I have clip ins too and it definitely changes the whole spinning experience.  I would go to the store and try them on – it is so important that they are a good fit, I think that trying them on in person is your best bet.

I have Shimano’s (not sure if there’s a difference between “spin shoes” and actual road bike shoes), but I use mine for my road bike. Not sure the actual model # of them. The place I spin at provides cycling shoes, which is really cool.

I would go to a local bike shop and chat with them. I’ve got a pair of shimanos with spd clips. This is the kind that are compatible with spin machines so during the off season I can keep wearing the same shoes. I go for distance not speed so I use an almost mountain bike style shoe, meaning they aren’t so stiff and the clip is recessed in my shoe so I can walk normal. Unless you are racing and seconds matter I would go for that type.

I ordered Shimanos for $100 from Zappos and a separate set of Delta clips from Amazon.  Works like a charm.
