Stay fresh through the sweat.
Trainer season is just around the corner, and if you've done it before you know that the amount of sweat generated in an hour on that machine blows your average bike ride out of the water. With no cool breeze to wick away the sweat and keep you dry, aside from a small room fan, you end up soaking your jersey, shorts, bike, and shoes. Louis Garneau understands the inevitable increase in sweat, which is why they made the Louis Garneau Actifly Cycling Shoes extra breathable and vented, so you can stay as cool as possible when you bang out your trainer miles or hit a spin class.
The Actifly Cycling Shoes wrap your foot in synthetic leather uppers that are dominated by mesh panels to keep your feet breathing. The mesh is treated with anti-odor technology, and Louis Garneau claims antibacterial technology as well, so they aim to keep your feet feeling and smelling fresh no -matter how sweaty they get. Inside of the Actifly shoes is more mesh, honeycomb perforated, and again treated with anti-odor technology to promote breathability, comfort, and quick drying. The outsole is made from nylon-injected fiberglass, which offers moderate stiffness for power output, but has a little more torsional flex than a carbon-fiber sole does. Even the outsole of the Actifly Cycling shoes is designed to keep your feet cool and dry, thanks to ventilation throughout that keeps your foot breathing from the bottom as well.
Since we don't always have the same pedal setup indoor as outdoor, and often if we're heading to a spin class there can be a huge range of options available, the Actifly Cycling shoes are designed to be ready for nearly any style of pedal you can throw at it. With steel inserts that come along with the shoes you can run any 3-bolt road cleat or 2-bolt mountain cleat, so it's as easy as a few turns of a hex key, and you'll be ready to ride your local spin classes SPD pedals after using your Look's at home.

They look great true to size, they are made to last. Exited to put them to the test.
