Cycling shoes are a great way of expressing your own style but it is important to get a pair that you’re comfortable with as cyclists spend a long time in them. We’ve searched for the best cycling shoe deals available now.
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. This is where deals come in and we’ve done the hard work finding the latest and greatest deals from the thousands of online shoe discounts.
To compose this list of bargains, we have selected shoes that we have either ridden, or brands that we trust. With summer just around the corner, now is a great time 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.
Best cycling shoe deals
Specialized Torch 2.0 cycling shoes were £157.99 now £119.99
When we’ve tested Specialized’s shoes, we’ve always ranked their comfort highly. Specialized’s Body Geometry tech includes footbeds sloped slightly outwards and various midsole bumps and wedges, fort a more natural pedalling action.

Or upgrade to the Torch 3.0 from £135 at Tredz.
Giro Empire ACC road shoe were £259.99, now from £149.00
Read more: Giro Empire ACC review
The Giro Empire ACC is a timeless classic in a world of techno slippers and was the originator in the resurgence of laces in modern cycling shoes. Lightweight and with a thoroughly modern Easton EC90 full carbon sole it still is a solid choice for a wide range of riding.
Fizik R3 Aria cycling shoes were £264.99 now from £145
The R3 Aria shoes use much of Fizik’s best tech, including two Boa dials for a secure, microadjustable fit. There’s a stiff carbon sole too and quoted weight per shoe for a size 42.5 is 243g, making them lightweight as well as functional. Plus they’re available in half as well as full sizes and lots of colour options.
Or you can get Fizik’s top end R1 Infinito Knit shoe from £250 – a £110 saving.
Shimano RP9 cycling shoes were £219.99 now £87.99
We’ve covered quite a few miles in the RP9 shoes. They’re comfortable, lightweight and can be heat moulded to your feet, although we found the fit fine without a spell in the oven. With a wrap-over style and plenty of ventilation, they’re a good choice for summer riding. Probikekit has availability on the RP9 in sizes 39, 40, 41, 43 and 48 only though.
Gaerne Carbon Stilo+ Road Shoes were £329.99, now £164.99
Read More: Gaerne Carbon Stilo+ Road Shoes
The only thing which we could mark these down for was the price, which when not on a discount is over a staggering £300. However, Wiggle now has them on sale saving you 50 per cent of the retail price.
This is of course the top end option available from Gaerne and you’ll see these shoes on many pro’s feet. Lightweight, stiff, well vented and topped with a comfortable upper, you can do much worse than these.
Mavic Cosmic Elite Vision CM Road Cycling Shoes were £149.99, now £89.00
Read more: Mavic Cosmic Elite Vision CM review
Mavic’s Cosmic Elite Vision CM shoe is a little different from most as it’s aimed around wet weather and low-light conditions; something the UK has in buckets. A slick and very water resistant upper is coated in reflective material making these ideal for commuting or when a bit of visibility is reassuring. They’ll also appeal if you like the idea of a weather proof shoe but don’t want to be stuck with a clumpy pair of winter boots during the standard British summer.
BOA dials, twin straps and a carbon sole ensure that none of this protection is at the detriment of performance.
Mavic Cosmic cycling shoes were £99 now from £69
The Cosmic shoes are towards the lower end of Mavic’s extensive shoe line-up but benefit from trickle-down from its flashier numbers, used by many pros. The fit is close, so you’ll get good power transfer, although you might want to go up half a size for a bit more comfort.
