For driving with a velomobile it is important to have a stiff soles. Road cycle shoes and mountain bike shoes are the most used cycle shoes with velomobiles. If you choose mountain bike shoes make sure they don’t have metal spikes. The spikes can damage the paint of your velomobile when you step in the velomobile or out.

 

The advantage of a mountain bike shoe is that in most cases you can still walk on it outside your velomobile. The downside is that mountain bike shoes are mostly a bit more bulky and in a velomobile the space is limited. If you have big feet a road shoe can make the difference if you will fit in a velomobile or not.
