The draw: Narrow feet-friendly

These shocking green shoes fit snug and are easy to cinch down on even the narrowest feet. The straps go against convention and open toward the bike, but it doesn’t matter; they’re short enough that they won’t hit your spokes. Little arch support means you’ll have to add our own if you need it—which could be tough given the tight fit. Some cushioning in the forefoot will keep the balls of your feet happy when you’re pushing hard against the not overly stiff soles.
