Cycling shoes

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a casual road cyclist, a pro road biker or a competitive indoor racer, we have the right cycling shoes for you – custom designed and highly engineered.

From track to gravel in our cycling shoes

We offer a range of cycling shoes, all built for purpose. Our general cycling shoes have a stiff, lightweight construction, with a fibreglass midsole plate and sturdy bolt road cleats to clip onto the pedals without slippage. You can get dedicated models for indoor track cycling, which are also ideal for spin classes, with enhanced ventilation for maximum breathability. For tougher terrain posed by road biking, we offer robust shoes for cycling.

Comfort and high performance from adidas biking shoes

We put a premium on comfort and foot support in our shoe construction. Cycling is a repetitive stress sport, so all adidas biking shoes have reinforced sidewalls that prevent even slight twisting of the foot. Our gravel biking shoes have a higher cut to cover the ankles, given the unpredictable nature of some roads that can jolt you unexpectedly. They also have breathable adidas Primeweave ripstop uppers and integrated internal socks, for a snug and comfortable fit. You can trust our cycling shoes to perform for you, mile after mile.

Helping the environment in adidas shoes

All of our shoes are made with at least 50% recycled materials, as part of our larger commitment to sustainability. We use Parley Ocean Plastic wherever we can, helping to remove and reuse plastic waste from the seas. These materials also have the advantage of making our shoes easy to maintain and offer great reliability and durability. You can choose from an enviable array of attractive modern colours or get shoes for cycling styled after some of our iconic vintage trainers. 

Cycling shoes Frequently Asked Questions

Cycling shoes make a difference in how efficiently you can work your bike’s pedals when cycling fast or far. Shoes made for road, gravel or mountain cycling often use cleats to connect directly to the pedals. This helps your feet keep their grip when the going gets slick or bumpy while also providing leverage. Shoes made for indoor cycling are highly breathable, with extra ventilation to help keep your feet cool during intense workouts.
The best cycling shoes help you pedal efficiently and keep your grip in wet or bumpy conditions. If you’re a casual biker riding on city streets, shoes with a hard, flat, high-grip outsole will help you keep moving with confidence. If you’re a commuter, road or mountain biker, you might want clip-in or clipless shoes. They attach to the pedals for added safety and stability. Indoor cycling shoes are made to be easy to train in and comfortable to walk in outside of spinning class. And they’re typically highly breathable to keep you comfortable through hard training indoors.
You can wear any shoes with a flat, firm and grippy outsole for casual cycling. But of course different kinds of biking — commuter, road, gravel, mountain and indoor cycling — have different needs. So specific shoes designed with those needs in mind can help keep you safe, comfortable and efficient when you cycle far, fast or off-road. For street and indoor cycling, features to look for include a cycling-specific outsole, secure heel fit and the reflectivity. Other cycling shoes are made for the rigors of the road or trail.
