Bike shoes have "cleats" on the sole which lock into compatible peddles. This allows the cyclist to not only apply power on the down stroke but also on the upstroke allowing you to use your quads AND hamstrings. They also keep your feet from slipping off the peddles. There are other benefits in their design as well.

I know.......there seems to be "special" equipment for all our pursuits but bike shoes really do work well and necessary for the serious cyclist.
