Are my shoes too loose?

I find these shoes pretty comfy…just wonder if they are too loose. My heel sometimes slips up.

I am also wearing a G8 insole and that seems to push my heel up a bit…to where the shoe can’t cup my heel completely. maybe I should ditch those and just use the flat liners?

just wondering how tight you all wear your shoes. off the bike I wear very minimalist / loose fitting shoes.


If you like comfort then they are not too big. Tighten them up a bit more.
Now if you’re a sprinter then yes they are too loose.
My right heel slips a bit but not excessive.

If it’s not a problem then it’s not something to worry about. If you’re having foot pain or hot spots then that’s a discussion. However, in an attempt to fix something that’s not broken may result in causing a problem.

i have occasional knee pain…so trying to tidy up all loose ends.

my feet feel fine though.

ty for the link. I’ve been working on my entire fit with that site and a fitter.

so I think part of the problem might be that because my shoes are too long, my cleat center is positioned slightly too far forward.

my shoes are a 48 wide

if I go down to 47, my toes feel jammed

so I dunno. i guess I need to find another brand?

I bought a device that let’s me move my cleat farther backwards (haven’t tried it yet). I feel like that’s a bandaid to the problem.

After I switched to Lake shoes it allowed me to place my cleats further back. This felt like I was able to produce more power.
