triathlon shoes for sale

Triathlon shoes for the cycling stage of a triathlon event are a unique type of shoe. Similar to road shoes worn by road-racing cyclists (like Lance Armstrong and other famous Tour de France riders), triathlon shoes feature a lightweight, tight, narrow design, with lace straps (to prevent any part of your shoe from flapping in the wind), pedal clips (to provide a strong, secure motion on the bike as you ride), and an over-sized heel strap to ensure a smooth and speedy transition between a triathlon’s sequential endurance disciplines (usually swimming and running).

On this page you will find some of the most popular triathlon shoes in the world. Sold by seven major companies (Fizik, Giro, Pearl Izumi, Louis Garneau, Mavic, Northwave, and Shimano), the men’s triathlon shoes on this page have been listed in alphabetical order.

Louis Garneau Men's Triathlon X-Speed II Shoes

Louis Garneau Tri X-Speed II Shoes

Given the stakes in the long, second leg, triathlon shoes have to be light, efficient, and comfortable, and it really helps if they don’t cost a fortune, too. Louis Garneau’s Tri X-Speed II Men’s Cycling Shoes check all those boxes, making them a perfect piece of kit for intermediate triathletes who want race-worthy gear without the sticker shock. At the risk of stating the obvious, fit is seriously important when it comes to triathlon shoes, and the X-Speeds nail it. Their fit starts with the HRS-80 heel counter, which locks your heel in place to prevent slipping (and blisters), and continues with the Power Flex closure system, which uses a reversed hook-and-loop strap that pulls from the outside of your foot to the inside, making it easier to use while you’re in the saddle.

Northwave Extreme Triathlon Shoes

Northwave Extreme Triathlon Shoes

Northwave approached the design of its Extreme Triathlon Shoes with a threefold ideology. First, the shoes must be comfortable. Secondly, its closure system needs to support a speedy T1.

This features Northwave’s finest carbon fiber in order to provide maximum rigidity. And when coupled with its feathery 60 grams of overall weight and extremely low stack height, your power transfer experiences a minimal loss of energy. Additionally, the outsole features Northwave’s Airflow System, where there are three ventilation ports fore and aft on the sole. So, cool air will flow over the foot, keeping you cool and controlled on race day.

white and black shimano triathlon shoes

Shimano Men’s Triathlon Cycling Shoe SH-TR31

Let’s say that after years of road racing, you’re attempting your first triathlon. Training for three disciplines is brutal on your body, but it’s equally hard on your budget. As a result, you might be tempted to use your ultra-rigid, buckle-secured road shoes for the bike leg of the race. However, before you do, consider the comfort that you’ll add, and the seconds that you’ll subtract from your time, by investing in the Shimano SH-TR31 Shoes. They’re lightweight, lightning-quick to pull on and adjust, and compliant enough to keep your feet fresh for your run without sacrificing any power transfer. With a large pull tab at the heel and a single strap over the instep, the SH-TR31 is more akin to a slipper than a shoe. Plus, the Shimano SH-TR31 triathlon shoes hoes are compatible with three-bolt cleat designs, as well as two-bolt SPD pedals when paired with Shimano’s SM-SH40 adapter.

shimano triathlon shoes

Shimano Men’s Triathlon/Multi-Sport Cycling Shoes

While triathlon, especially ultras, are hard on bodies from head to toe, feet take the brunt of the force. The Shimano SH-TR32 Shoes are specifically designed to support feet during the bike portion, while being comfortable enough that the transition to the run is a piece of cake. If you are not prepared, your race could be lost in transition. For this reason, the SH-TR32 shoes feature a large heel loop that is easy to grab to quickly don the shoe. A single hook-and-loop strap doubles back and secures away from the inside of the shoe. This allows you to clip the shoes into your pedals before the race so that in T1 you are able to make the running jump into them, start pedaling, and then tighten the strap — without getting your fingers caught in your bicycle’s spinning chain-ring.

Shimano SH-TR60 Men’s Shoes – Men’s

You can’t put a price on comfort during the course of a triathlon. However, you also have to walk the razor’s edge between too comfortable and too dynamically-driven. Luckily, no one understands this golden ratio better than Shimano, and its new SH-TR60 Shoes represent this knowledge. In its SH-TR60 shoes, Shimano met your requirements for a pair of triathlon shoes. The TR60s feature a carbon composite outsole construction that strikes the ideal balance between rigidity and comfort. And on the subject of transitions, the TR60 only requires the one burrito strap for a secure closure. So, with fewer straps to fuss with, this will certainly speed up your transition time.

What Makes Triathlon Shoes So Special?

As you can see, triathlon shoes have a number a number of features in common. They are lightweight, aerodynamic, breathable, with tongue straps that tie everything down, heel straps that make it easy to get the shoes on and off, and many of the shoes feature a comfortable design that allows the shoes to be worn with or without socks – thereby speeding up your time in the transitions. Many triathlon shoes can even be mounted to the bike before you arrive, so you can simply run out of the water, jump on your bike, start pedaling, and slip into your triathlon shoes as you begin to ride. This allows you to greatly reduce your time in the transitions and quickly zip ahead of your competition.

    Well, the design of the shoes is really important to keep you going in a triathlon. However, I believe that you also need elastic shoelaces. With these, it will be easy for you to remove your shoes when you need to. For example, if you’re up to the swimming part.
