Best budget cycling shoes

Cheap cycling shoes:  Bontrager Circuit
Cheap cycling shoes: Bontrager Circuit

Bontrager Circuit

Best for beginners

Cleats: Two-bolt, three-bolt | Retention: Boa, Velcro | Sole material: 85% Nylon, 15% Fibreglass

Two and three-bolt cleat compatibility

Only two colours to choose from

With its two- and three-bolt cleat compatibility, the Circuit shoes from Bontrager are great for beginners who might prefer the easier clipless action of two-bolt SPD pedals (mountain bike) vs the more secure hold of three-bolt SPD-SL (road).

The two colour choices might be a little limited, but both offer a stylish aesthetic at what is a reasonably affordable price point. The fibreglass-and-nylon-mix sole will offer a combination of comfort and stiffness, and the velcro strap combines with a Boa L6 dial to provide a secure, yet comfortable fit.

Cheap cycling shoes: Fizik Tempo Powerstrap R5
Cheap cycling shoes: Fizik Tempo Powerstrap R5

Fizik Tempo Powerstrap R5

Best for style

Cleats: Three-bolt | Retention: Velcro | Sole material: Carbon reinforced nylon

Comfortable multi-wrap velcro

Only two colours to choose from

Trickling technology down from the type of shoes worn by Fizik's sponsored team Movistar, the Tempo Powerstrap R5 shoes offer a great deal of that premium aesthetic at a surprisingly affordable price. Looks aren't everything though, so it's reassuring to know that, thanks to the wrap-over velcro straps, the Fizik shoes are super comfortable for most foot shapes.

These cheap cycling shoes are anything but cheap when it comes to build quality, and the only shoe in this lineup to use carbon fibre in the sole, it's unsurprising to see the Fizik shoes tip the scales at just 255 grams. Not the lightest here, but not far off.

There are four colours to choose from, and sizes range from a dainty EU36 to a plenty-big-enough EU48.

Cheap cycling shoes: Mavic Cosmic
Cheap cycling shoes: Mavic Cosmic

Mavic Cosmic Boa

Best for light weight

Cleats: Three-bolt | Retention: Boa dial | Sole material: Nylon and fibreglass

Weight of 250g (claimed)

All four colours are nice

Narrow profile

Tipping the scales at a meagre 250 grams, the Cosmic Boa is a lightweight, narrow shoe with a well-ventilated sole and a breathable upper.

Retention is actioned by a single L6 Boa dial, which operates a lace-like closure across the forefoot for increased comfort. This comfort is complemented by an Ortholite insole and a roomier toe-box to prevent squashed toes.

The outsole is constructed from a mix of nylon and fibreglass, which combine to offer a comfortable platform without a loss of power transfer.

Available in four colours to satisfy all style requirements.

Cheap cycling shoes: Shimano RC5

Shimano RC5

Best for comfort

Cleats: Three-bolt | Retention: Boa dial, Velcro | Sole material: Nylon and fibreglass

Weight of 250g (claimed)

Lots of cleat adjustability


Shimano really knows how to make a great pair of cycling shoes. The Japanese components brand may be better known for its groupsets, but it came out on top of our recent gravel shoes grouptest, and received a strong 4.5 stars in our recent Shimano S-Phyre RC9 shoes review.

The RC5 features plenty of trickle-down technology from the upper echelons of the range including a Boa dial and Velcro strap for closure, the highly adjustable cleat positioning, and specifically placed padding for improved comfort.

Cheap cycling shoes: Specialized Torch 1
Cheap cycling shoes: Specialized Torch 1

Specialized Torch 1.0

Best for stiffness

Cleats: Three-bolt | Retention: Boa dial, Velcro | Sole material: Injection-molded nylon

Body Geometry comfort considerations

Reflective heel

Makers of some of the most popular shoes in the WorldTour and amateur scenes, Specialized sure knows what it's doing when it comes to footwear. The Torch 1.0 road shoes offer an injection moulded sole for increased stiffness and efficient power transfer. The Boa dial is paired with a velcro strap like a few of the other shoes featured here, and the heel cup features reflective detailing for increased low-light safety.

Rated at 6/15 on the stiffness index, the Torch 1.0 shoes are plenty responsive when it comes to jumping on the pedals, yet the slight flex and Body Geometry sole and footbeds will combine to offer increased comfort for longer days.

The older Torch 1.0 shoes - which feature three velcro straps instead of the Boa dial - are still sparsely available, often with huge discounts, so if you're not sold on the Boa dial for retention, a discount might be available.
