Jen Fink Oppenheimer(Regional Programming Manager NYSC, Yoga & Spinning Instructor/Trainer)answered(7/17/2012)I like SIDI and I've had mine for years. You'll want to ask then for the proper clips that fit the spinning bikes you use most often. Most spinning shoes can be found online for the cheapest price so I'd recommend finding a pair you like, trying them on in a store, writing down the model # and ordering online. Hope this helps!
Jennifer Menzer(Certified Personal Trainer, Pilates Instructor, Yoga Instructor, Holistic Health & Life Coach)answered(11/19/2012)I prefer Pearl Izumi for all my spin gear. They make great comfortable shoes and padded bike shorts for women that will make your ride more comfortable, reduce knee strain, and allow you to ride faster and more efficiently, thus burning more calories! Good Luck!
Paula Stephens(Certified Personal Trainer, Exercise Physiology M.A.)answered(1/17/2013)SPD refers to the type of clip on the bottom of the shoe and is the most common type of clip (most spin bikes use this). Biking shoes can be very expensive, so consider how much you are going to use the shoes and if you plan on using them outside on a traditional bike as well. There are specific spinning shoes that are not as durable and more comfortable than cycle shoes you would buy if your goals were to ride long distances or in a triathlon. Consider your usage, type of riding and price point before you buy. On a personal note, the shoes I use to teach spin in are over 12 years old and were super cheap when I bought them. They do the job and I just keep them in my gym bag for anytime I find myself teaching or taking a class!
