When bicycling, hiking or walking, you'll be more comfortable and efficient in Pearl Izumi's versatile X-Alp Impact shoes. These sweet shoes feature running shoe uppers constructed from light, quick-drying and breathable synthetic fabric with laces and a hook-and-loop strap for a custom fit. They also boast dual-density EVA midsoles for pedaling efficiency, beveled heels for easy walking, and lugged soles for great grip on all surfaces.
In order to mount your pedal cleats to your shoes (cleats are included with new pedals and sold separately), the cleats and shoes must have matching bolt patterns.
There are four cleat configurations found on cycling shoes (diagram): SPD-R, Look/SPD-SL, SPD and Speedplay. Road shoes feature one, two or even three of these. Off-road shoes usually use the SPD pattern. If you're unsure which cleats your shoes require, please ask us. We're here to help!
