Shimano TR31, £99.99
The essence of a good triathlon bike shoe is easy access at speed, comfort on your foot and power transfer to the pedals. Shimano's TR31 delivers on every count and at an affordable price, too. It's a simple shoe: a combination of breathable mesh with synthetic overlaps in the upper, secured
with one big Velcro tab, and all sitting on a fiberglass-reinforced sole. It's not the stiffest outsole available but it's more than adequate for all but the most experienced athletes.
