Quick transitions can be the key to victory, which is why Shimano's triathlon-specific SH-TR31 Shoes have large heel straps and an oversize, reverse closure. Further time savings are ensured by the reinforced nylon soles that offer worthy pedaling power. And, the seamless interiors and quick-drying mesh uppers keep you comfortable, even with wet feet and no socks.
In order to mount your pedal cleats to your shoes (cleats are included with new pedals and sold separately), the cleats and shoes must have matching bolt patterns.
There are four cleat configurations found on cycling shoes (diagram): SPD-R, Look/SPD-SL, SPD and Speedplay. Road shoes feature one, two or even three of these. Off-road shoes usually use the SPD pattern. If you're unsure which cleats your shoes require, please ask us. We're here to help!
