Buying guide

In this section I hope to build out a complete guide for buying SPD shoes, pedals, cleats, and, eventually, probably a lot of other stuff connected with cycling.

I want to give an overview of the main manufacturers of SPD shoes like Shimano, Northwave and Pearl Izumi and give a brief run-down of their product range, the most popular models, and of course where you might start looking if you are planning to buy.

I will also try to categorise them into types like “SPD road shoes”, “MTB shoes” etc. so you can find what you are looking for more easily. It’s going to take a while, but I think it will be a great resource by the time I am finished for anyone planning to buy SPD shoes, pedals, cleats and wondering where to start.

So, wish me luck!
