Children’s cycling shoes – children’s road shoes and children’s MTB shoes with and without cleat system

Special cycling shoes are not necessary for the first tours. Yet, as soon as the kids are really into cycling, bike shoes are an essential part of your gear. As road shoes or MTB shoes for clipless pedals, they help kids to ensure better power transfer to the pedal. Flat pedals offer good grip on the pedal and come without recess for a cleat system in order to ensure maximum flexibility. In our buying guide for children’s cycling shoes, we would like to explain which shoes are best suited for your intended use and what you should pay attention to when making your choice.

Our range includes kids’ road shoes, kids’ mountain bike shoes and kids’ flat pedal shoes for girls and boys in all standard sizes, colours and price ranges from popular brands such as NORTHWAVE and FIVE TEN.


Children’s road shoes – cycling shoes for road bike pedals

Road shoes for children have soles with three holes arranged in a triangle. This allows attaching cleats in order to use the shoes in combination with clipless pedals with 3-bolt standard. Children’s road shoes are therefore suitable for the following systems: Look Delta and Keo, Shimano SPD-SL, Speedplay Light Action, Zero, X-Series (with 3-bolt adapter plate), Campagnolo Pro-Fit, Mavic Zxellium, Time Iclic/Xpresso and Time Impact

Whereas sneakers and sports shoes have a flexible, soft rubber sole, road shoes for children come with a nylon sole, which is a lot stiffer. The high stiffness ensures best power transfer to the pedal. The only disadvantage: on long walking sections, the shoes are less comfortable than standard sports shoes. For sufficient hold on walking sections, the shoes have small heels.

The upper material of junior road shoes is generally a combination of synthetic leather and breathable mesh inserts. This ensures perfect ventilation even on warm days as well as great aerodynamics.

An individually adjustable velcro closure guarantees a precise fit and prevents the heel from slipping.


Children’s MTB shoes – cycling shoes for mountain bike pedals

Mountain bike shoes for children have two parallel holes in the sole. This allows attaching cleats in order to use the shoes in combination with clipless pedals with 2-bolt standard. Children’s MTB shoes are therefore suitable for the following systems: Shimano SPD, Time ATAC, CrankBrothers, CrankBrothers Race, Look MTB, Xtreme MTB and Wellgo MTB as well as for spinning bikes in gyms and for touring use.

As opposed to sneakers, sports shoes or flat pedal shoes, mountain bike shoes have a nylon solewhich is a lot stiffer. The high stiffness ensures better power transfer to the pedal. The only disadvantage: on long walking sections, the shoes are less comfortable than standard sports shoes.

A thought-out positioning and shape of the tread profile makes sure that the MTB shoes offer sufficient grip on slippery grounds and allow pushing the bike uphill or in the mud, too.

MTB shoes for children come with particularly sturdy upper material that resists branches, crashes and more.

An individually adjustable velcro closure guarantees a precise fit and prevents the heel from slipping.


Flat pedal children’s shoes – cycling shoes for flat pedals

Cycling shoes for cleat systems are not always the right choice. Especially if you ride on technically demanding trails and need to take your feet off the pedal quickly from time to time, flat pedal shoes are worth considering.

The children’s flat pedal cycling shoes in the ROSE online shop have a special rubber sole. There is no recess in the sole so that the shoes cannot be connected with clipless pedals.

The heart of the flat pedal shoes is their rubber compound. Thanks to the thought-out composition of the sole, it offers maximum grip on all grounds. Whether on flat pedals, platform pedals, muddy or wet grounds – flat pedal mountain bike shoes offer excellent grip.

What’s more, the rubber sole has another advantage. It is very flexible. This ensures high comfort on walking sections. Only with regard to power transfer, the flexibility of the sole means a slight compromise on the performance.

What’s more, flat pedal shoes for children stand out for their highly robust and tear-proof upper materials. That’s why they will not easily be damaged by, for example, branches.

Depending on the model, kids’ flat pedal shoes come with individually adjustable velcro closures or classic lacing.


With these practical tips, it should be no problem finding the right cycling shoes for your children. Should you have more questions, please feel free to contact our experts anytime by e-mail, phone or in one of our stores. We will be happy to help you.
