Specialized's Sonomas are great do-it-all cycling shoes. Their sneaker styling and triple Velcro closures provide awesome comfort for cruising to the office, the coffee shop, attending Spinning class and just about any other activity. Plus, the souls sport stiff internal plates for pedaling efficiency and protection while the rubber outsoles offer excellent traction for walking. These shoes also accept recessed cleats for use with clipless pedals (sold separately).

As incredible as the human foot is, the fact remains that it is highly adapted to walking, not riding. Thankfully, the bicycling wizards at Specialized have you covered with their Body Geometry technology. They took a whole new approach to cycling footwear and engineered each facet of their shoes to enhance comfort, mitigate overuse injuries and boost on-the-bike power, all things that every rider, from the weekend warrior to the seasoned pro, can appreciate.
Although every foot is unique, most individuals have feet that cant towards the outside (meaning the outer part of the foot falls lower than the inside). If left uncorrected, this could cause the knee to collapse inwards while riding, which is both inefficient and a common cause of injury. To address that issue, all Specialized Body Geometry shoes feature a built-in varus wedge that counters your natural cant for perfect alignment and a more powerful pedal stroke. Plus, you can get additional wedges (sold separately) for your shoes if your feet cant more or less than the average person's.
Additionally, Specialized's Body Geometry insoles feature a metatarsal button that keeps unwanted numbness and hotspots at bay by supporting the bones of the forefoot to prevent crushed nerves and arteries. And for even more comfort and efficiency, the insoles boast longitudinal arch support to stop unwanted flex that robs power and causes stress.
