The velcro on my cycling shoes are starting to wear out. The rest of the shoe is in good condition. Any suggestions on how to replace the velcro straps.

Might try a shoe repair (when I was a kid, these were common, as shoes would last for several years with new soles and heels... today, we simply throw out and buy new)... since more than cycling shoes now use velcro closures.

If you knew someone who had a heavy duty machine (or if you were very patient and very strong with leathercraft needles), it might be possible to DIY as long as you'd be satisfied with the results (looks).

At any rate, I feel your pain. I've got a pair of Sidi shoes that, while not needing them now... may some day (have even considered shaving the hook and loop... then hot gluing replacements on the original straps).

Be the bike.

They attach with a small screw. Pop a little lock-tite on the screw and you'll be good to go.
