Hi all,

I recently bought a Scott Road Bike with clip on peddles and needed some advise as to what type of clip on shoes to buy.
I have flat feet so I am limited to the types and brands of shoes that is out there.
I am a size 12.5 Australian shoe size.
Any advise and or recommendations would be highly appreciated.
I am excited and cannot wait until I start riding once I have all my gear like lights, Speedo and shoes. :)
Thanking you all in advance.

What type of pedals do you have?

The type of shoe that you should buy depends on what type of pedals you have. Different pedal types require different cleats on the shoes. Many shoes can take a variety of cleats to suit a variety of pedals, but you need to know which ones.

Clip on (confusingly known as "clipless") shoes and pedals are more efficient for any serious riding, but not essential. You could always remove them and replace them with cheap flat pedals and wear whatever shoes you want.

If you can, take a photo and upload it so we can see what brand of pedal you have. There are at least 6 different types of clip in pedals on the market commonly used.

Or if you're close to a bike store, pop in with the bike and they can tell you.
