Hey Bilyana, welcome on board!
As you've already noticed, your feet are always in charge, so until your brain and body adapt to the new movements, you'd better wear something comfortable and stable. ;)
I like a shoe with a thin, firm sole. Spongy-soled running/tennis shoes waste a lot of pedaling energy. Right now I'm loving Vivobarefoot shoes on Ergon PC2 pedals (platform pedals with full pedal surfaces are key to making thin-soled shoe riding the best).
Menim,da čevlji niso toliko pomembni kot več začetniške redne vaje v vožnji... Ko to enkrat obvladaš obutev več ni pomembna. Sam se celo poletje vozim s flip-flop natikači brez problema. No res pa sem vsaki dan redno na Halfbike...
Hi Sebastian :)
We usually would not recommend using SPD-pedals on the Halfbike, as they would make it extremely difficult to get off the bike in case of emergency. However, we've had a client that tried them on and was very satisfied with the result :)
