Hi all Im after some trainers/shoes for when I'm out on the tracks but not sure what's best, I'm pretty new the biking although really getting into it and at the moment only doing local forest tracks nothing to extreme, I'm using clip less pedals and my shoes just ain't cutting it, what's best for me to use? I don't mind spending a bit of money but that said nothing to silly lol. Thanks in advance.

    Why aren't your current shoes cutting it?Trouble clipping in/out?
    What shoes do you currently have?
    What clippless system are you using Shimano/Crank Bros/Time etc?
    Is the problem actually the shoes or your Cleats/Pedals?

    So what are your current shoes?
    Are you looking for something that is more trainer like and easier to wear off the bike?
    ... or are you after something with a stiffer sole and more rigid connection to the pedal to ensure you get the power down?
    ... or a good blend of the above?
    It depends on what is important to you.

    5.10s would be the obvious suggestion.
