Louis Garneau Lite Trainer Shoe - Men's
You'll only need to deal with one pair of shoes to the gym when you're wearing the Men's Lite Trainer Shoe. This comfortable trainer accommodates SPD cleats so you can get the most out of your spinning session, but the cleat is recessed so you can walk around the gym in comfort (and without pissing off the gym manager) as you hit the weight circuit.
- EVA and ultralight rubber outsole offer comfort and cushioning
- HRS-80 heel retention system holds your heel in place during the power stroke
- Easy lacing system with fastener makes for quick adjustments on the fly
- Sandwich mesh upper and ventilated sole help you stay cooler during sweaty training sessions
- Heel loop with reflector helps with on-off and adds visibility when you wear the shoe during your morning commute

Spin Shoe for women too!
October 5, 2012
I bought these for spin class. They are my first cycle shoes so I have nothing to compare to but they have been perfect for what I need and the price is crazy good!
They have a narrow fit in the toe box but that may be "normal" for a cycle shoe. I don't know. You may want to consider going up a size if that bothers you. Mine have a better more comfortable fit after wearing a few times in class. These say men's shoes but I bought them anyway. They have simple clean look.
Sizing is True

Nice enough shoes for their purpose. Indoor spinning or commuting. They are white, white, bright white, boy howdy. Made in China. Decent construction. Good, cheap shoes pretending to be runners.
Good indoor cycling shoes

First of all, I think that the U.S. sizing for these shoes is not accurate. I usually wear a size 45 (or U.S. 11) cycling shoe but I was concerned when I checked the sizing chart and saw that 45 is equal to U.S. 11.5. It turned out that a 45/11.5 shoe is not too big for me. It fits like a size 11.
I installed Shimano SPD cleats on the shoes. The cleats are just barely exposed and make a tiny click on tile floors. The footplate is hard plastic, like typical cycling shoes.
The shoes are fine for indoor trainers or spinning classes. I'm not using them outside for two reasons. First, the soles have small vents (covered by grilles) in front of and behind the cleats. I imagine that the inserts would become a bit wet in a rainstorm. Second, the fabric and laces of the shoes are blinding bright white. I would hate for them to turn into an ugly grey.
All in all, like the description states, good shoes for someone who does a lot of indoor cycling but doesn't want to wear "regular" cycling shoes.
