Sometimes you just don't want to play Mr. Rogers and have to change your shoes at the office. Keen's Austins blend street-smart style with cycling functionality so you don't have to. The handsome waterproof leather and classic Oxford lace design blend in at the office, while your commute in is quick and efficient thanks to a recessed SPD plate underfoot. On the bike or off, your feet are comfy and dry thanks to their "Metatomical" footbeds and moisture-wicking linings. And wet or slippery surfaces are no worries with the rubber outsole. Go ahead, ride downtown and walk around in your cycling shoes, the Austins are ready whenever you are.
In order to mount your pedals' cleats to your shoes, they must have matching bolt patterns. There are 3 configurations (diagram) used on cycling shoes, SPD-R, Look/SPD-SL and SPD. Road shoes feature one, two or even all three of these. Mountain-bike shoes usually use the SPD pattern. If you have any questions about cleat compatibility, please contact us. We're here to help!
