Choose the right pair of triathlon shoes for the best results
It goes without saying that the right pair of shoes for triathlon is an essential part of your training and race regime that contributes to your comfort, efficiency and speed. The appropriate pair of shoes can enhance your performance as well as streamline the transition process between each of the three sports: cycling, running and swimming. Triathletes who want to get the best times usually opt for two pairs of shoes, one that is designed for running and one that is engineered for cycling.
The type of running shoe can depend on the length of the race, with cushioned, more supportive trainers that reduce impact when your foot strikes the ground better suited to longer distances. Triathlon running shoes are intended to be lightweight and have a developed drainage and ventilation system to keep your feet as dry and comfortable as possible. You may also choose to not wear socks to reduce time during transitions, in which case, the right pair of running shoes will minimise the risk of blisters and provide plenty of ventilation so that your feet can breathe. Stretch laces with adjustable toggles are ideal for shaving off those all-important seconds off your time, enabling you to quickly slip your shoes on and off, while the toggle can be tightened to keep them firmly fixed on your feet.
For the cycling leg, stiff-soled, clipless bike shoes that can be attached directly to the pedal are a typical choice of many triathletes. They ensure a seamless interface between the shoe and the pedal for better pedalling efficiency and power transmission under heightened pedal loads, while features such as velcro fasteners are optimised for quick changes between the different sports.
