Hi all! My bicycle just became my main mode of transportation, after having not ridden one for 15 years. I'll be riding 4-5 miles daily to get to and from school--uphill on the way home.
I had my heart set on a pair of Vibram five fingers for back-to-school, and I'm wondering if a particular model will be better suited to this task? Or, should I opt for another type of shoe altogether?
If you're only riding back and forth to school, do you really need to spend that much money on shoes? I mean, you really don't need a special pair of kicks just to commute on a bike. A generic pair of canvas sneakers should do you just fine, and will save you quite a bit of dough.
my bike is my only mode of transport. i ride my bike everyday, everywhere i go, in all seasons.* and i just wear whatever shoes i have on, including sandals, heels etc... i don't wear athletic shoes at all (ever), unless you count canvas.
if you like VFFs, go for it; but don't buy them just for the bike ride.
