commuter cycling shoe
Essentially the result of a steamy threesome involving a skate shoe, street pump and an SPD trainer; Keen's Coradoro shoes are remarkably comfortable for prolonged walking, loafing and short haul commutes/urban riding. Common to the type, compromised rigidity and arch support precludes more spirited/extended pedalling but the outer sole works remarkably well with dual sided commuter pedals, rattraps and beefy nylon toe clips.
Keen's Austin Pedal shoe might have a look best described as geography teacheresque, but that estimable body of men and women have long known a thing or two about the benefits of practical footwear for both the classroom and the great outdoors so if you are after a pair of really well thought out and comfortable all day wear urban cycling shoes look no further because these are the kitties.
I’ve got a whole wardrobe of cycling specific footwear: my rigid and almost-impossible-to-walk-in race shoes, my protective and warm winter boots, I’ve even got a lightweight mesh pair of summer riding shoes. But the footwear I’ll reach for more times than any of the others, is a shoe that’ll do the job year round, on any of my bikes, is as easy to walk in as a trainer and yet still stiff enough for me to give it a bit of welly if I want.
