We've rounded up some of the most tempting offers available right now
Most of us have one pair of road cycling shoes, maybe a couple if we’re lucky, that we’ll wear nearly every time we get on the bike. And since those pedalling slippers form a key bond between you and the bike, it makes a lot of sense to invest in the best you can afford.
However, cycling shoe prices seem to be ever increasing, with newer, stiffer, lighter, and occasionally more comfortable designs constantly aiming to reach superlative status in the category.
Which is where deals come in. You could shell out a few ton for the newest and best, or enjoy a significant price drop on the model that was newest and best last year.
Here, we’ve found the best deals on a selection of shoes that we have either ridden, or we know the brand and trust in the quality of its product. With summer just around the corner, now is a great to bag a bargain and upgrade your old shoes to some serious racing slippers.
The products featured have been chosen because we know they’re good quality and are an excellent offer at the price we’ve included (at the time of writing). Our tech team have unrivalled expertise and years of experience testing new products, so you can trust our recommendations – and we also know what represents a good deal.
With each product is a ‘Buy Now’ link. If you click on this then we may receive a small amount of money from the retailer when you purchase the item. This doesn’t affect the amount you pay.

With the Factor Techlace, Giro set out to create a shoe that found the perfect medium between comfort, performance and weight.
It comes with one Boa Dial and a Velcro-lace setup so it’s easy to get foot hugging retention on the heel without hotspots across the top. We’ve reviewed these shoes and our favourite thing about them was the comfort – it’s impressive for a race dedicated pair of shoes.
Giro Empire shoes were £259, now from £137.99
Review: Giro Empire ACC shoes
Another pair of superb Giro shoes that have now got a tidy discount on them. They’re amazingly good looking, keeping all of the chic that we’ve come to expect from Giro shoes. Those good looks are matched by the performance ethic that these shoes embody, and the Easton carbon sole keeps things stiff underfoot whilst the laces offer comfort.
