Road Cycling Shoes use a large plastic cleat to attach to the pedal. It is also possible to use mountain shoes on a road bike (you can walk in them) with either a mountain pedal, or a road-specific pedal designed for mountain shoes.
This chart can be used as an initial guide in comparing American shoe sizes to European shoe sizes.
Because of the wide variations in shoe design, this chart is intended as an approximate guide only.
