When bicycling, hiking or walking, you'll be more comfortable and efficient in Pearl Izumi's versatile X-Alp Seek V shoes. These sweet shoes feature running shoe uppers constructed from lightweight, quick-drying and breathable synthetic fabric with full laces for a custom fit. They also boast dual-density EVA outsoles/midsoles with firmer second-density EVA plates under your cleats for pedaling efficiency. Beveled heels facilitate easy walking and their lugged soles grip great on all surfaces.
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!
