|I need a good biking shoe.||Mongoose|

|I have been commuting to work every morning on my bike and seem to have developed a foot problem. The balls of my feet get painful, it's like a deep aching in my foot when I walk on it. Some of my toes go numb too when I ride for a while. I stopped riding my bike to work and the problem seems to be going away after a few weeks. |
I just wear a cheap pair of leather shoes when I ride to work. I tried getting some gel inserts for my shoes and used them for a while, but they didn't help. Is there a good biking shoe that can prevent this problem? Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks.

|Yes, you need a cycling shoe. Cycling shoes are stiff and hard to walk in, but are made to optimize your pedaling performance. ANY OLD cycling shoe will beat a walking shoe. MTB shoes are easier to walk around in, but road shoes are the most efficient. I've used Look, Nike, and Diadora. I like my diadora's so much I use them on my road bike even though they're ATB shoes-a road shoe with a treaded sole. |
Of course I've been riding clipless forever. But that's another bag-o-critters.
