2011 Northwave Touring Shoes

Northwave has released touring shoes for 2011, which are also ideal for audaxing, commuting, and regular sport or leisure riding. With its road shoe style, the shoes are firm enough to make pedaling as nice as possible.

Though stylish enough in its black overall with white and gray highlights, this practical touring and audax shoe is not complete worry-free. Its three-strap Velcro closure, for example, does not allow easy adjustment as much as ratchet closures do.

Furthermore, cleat compatibility can be an issue, especially if the pedals are not Shimano SPDs. To some riders, the cleat bolt or insole can be a source of nuisance. However, the 2011 Northwave Touring Shoes are easier to walk in compared to typical road shoes. The shoes have a nicer and stiffer sole, too.

Comfort is also placed on various parts of the shoes, including the front area of the foot and toe, which is also thanks in part to the non-deformable design of the shoe.
