Northwave's Sonic 3S Shoes offer high-end performance and breathability at an entry-level price. The carbon-reinforced nylon soles transfer power straight to the pedals, while comfort comes in the form of the polyurethane upper with Northwave's AirFlow that stays snug over your feet and keeps air moving through the shoes. Three asymmetrical hook-and-loop straps deliver even pressure distribution and quick adjustment, and make for a great fit.
In order to mount your pedal cleats to your shoes (cleats are included with new pedals and sold separately), the cleats and shoes must have matching bolt patterns.
There are four cleat configurations found on cycling shoes (diagram): SPD-R, Look/SPD-SL, SPD and Speedplay. Road shoes feature one, two or even three of these. Off-road shoes usually use the SPD pattern. If you're unsure which cleats your shoes require, please ask us. We're here to help!
