Chrome SPD Truk Pro Shoe

A lightweight canvas shoe, the Chrome SPD Truk Pro has a duel density 'FlexPlate Technology' which makes them comfortable for walking in but gives stiffness when pedaling.

They are also made of rubber and cordura, with no leather involved.

Any shoe you like, with Retrofitz

Don't fancy any of the previous offering? Prefer to wear your own trainers? No worries! Retrofitz are a nifty invention that mean you can transform pretty much any trainer into a clipless cycling shoe.

They come built into a plate that adds stiffness to the sole, and bumpers either side mean the cleat is protected from the floor, and you'll still be able walk.

The downside is that currently you have to have them shipped over from the US, although they also have a selection of trainers already converted with the Retrofitz if you don't fancy doing it yourself.

Price: $70 ($50 for the DIY kit + $20 international shipping)
