Nashbar Sport R Road Shoes
Our shoe guy literally sailed the world in our 3-masted schooner, the USS Two Wheels, to find you the best value on an excellent pair of shoes. In the tree house of a wizard cobbler elf beyond the edge of the known world he found these magical shoes and brought back as many as he could. What's so magical about the Nashbar Sport R road bike shoes? They're probably the best performance-to-value shoes you'll ever lay eyes on or put your feet into. They'll enhance your pedaling power and make every bike ride cooler, more fun, and more comfortable.
  • Synthetic and nylon mesh upper is soft and comfortable, supports your foot through the entire pedal stroke, and has excellent ventilation
  • Reinforced nylon sole is stiff and won't flex through your pedal stroke, ensuring none of your power is wasted
  • Two hook and loop straps keep your foot securely in place

      Comments about Nashbar Sport R Road Shoes:

      Just started biking with clipless pedals. Found these shoes very comfortable and a great fit. The soles are really slippery though when stopping on the street. Not sure if that is common and will just need to wear in - first time in bike shoes.

      Difficulty installing cleats

        • No Cleats Provided

        Comments about Nashbar Sport R Road Shoes:

        Wow the cleats were difficult to install. Very hard cardboard inner had to be chipped away with a small screwdriver to then pull out rubber hole inserts -- which were not serrated, just part of a larger rubber sole! The cleat plates were not provided either. Had to drive to a bike store to get the plates to go with the cleats which I had to order separately from Nashbar! A 2-hour ordeal!

          Comments about Nashbar Sport R Road Shoes:

          I use this shoe daily on early morning 20-30 mile rides. To me, the better shoe doesn't give you cause to notice it during any part of the ride. This shoe does this! Put it on, adjust the tongue, saddle up and ride. When you are done, put it away! That simple. The broad clip plate is excellent at transferring power without spot pressure concerns. The Velcro straps can be tightened or loosened on the fly and the wider size is perfect for my hobbit feet!

          Comments about Nashbar Sport R Road Shoes:

          I am pretty new to road biking and was looking for a decent pair of road shoes to start training. The shoes feel good, they are working well, I just got the wrong pedals and cleats for these shoes. If you are looking to use SPD pedals(which I was due to budget constraints) you may want to spend a little more. The SPD mounting slots are glued in tight. It took way too long to cut the sock liner and rubber insert away in order to get the cleats mounted on the shoes.

          Overall, decent shoes, tough to get started, especially for a novice cyclist like me.

          way too small...

                I normally wear EU 45, sometimes (rarely) 46. To be on the safe side I ordered 46. They were WAY TOO SMALL, like 2-3 sizes. I can not explain this but this is a fact. I had to return it. The shoes look great and I really wanted them but, hey - i could not even squeeze in my leg...

                Comments about Nashbar Sport R Road Shoes:

                After riding RAGBRAI with athletic shoes and toe clips, I bought these with Shimano R540 Pedals to upgrade as inexpensively as possible. The shoe is stiff for efficient pedaling, comfortably ventilated with mesh panels, and the Velcro straps maintain a snug fit. There are shoes with more sophisticated features, but these (along with the pedals) have made my rides far more enjoyable for under $100. I wear a 10.5 D shoe - the size 45's fit perfectly.

                  A very good and comfortable shoe for the money. The placement of the fastening velcro straps work very well for a nice snug fit.
