What kind of shoes are best for cycling?

Can I wear any shoes for cycling?

Shoes that look and have more aggressive treads like mountain bike shoes will be great for platform pedals like these here.

Can you cycle with Converse?

I’d recommend something with a relatively stiff thin rubber sole, like Chuck Taylors or something similar, maybe the low-top version. Your pedals probably have some sort of “teeth” on them, so the tread of the sole shouldn’t matter a great deal as long as the serrations can grip into them a bit.

You can technically wear any shoes for mountain biking, but generic sneaker just won’t offer the best grip or power transfer than a proper pair of flat pedal or skate shoes, and even hiking shoes do a good job.
