As cycle-loving San Franciscans, we’re the first to admit that reaching new heights in the shoe department is complicated. We say (at the risk of sounding like our grannies), hold off on the heels and opt for something a bit more sensible — at least when pedaling up and down these steep hills.
That said, you don’t need to sacrifice style just to get from point A to point B on two wheels — and we’ve got the slideshow to prove it. From booties to ballet flats (we snuck in some cool sneaks, too), these kicks are polished and perfect for cycling around the city. So, go ahead and pull out your pretty ride, because you’ve got places to go, people to see, and not a single (shoe-related) care in the world. We say,
right ride on!
