***I was provided complimentary TIEM cycling shoes in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.***
Raise your hands if you've ever almost died in your first spin class? Okay, okay, that's exaggerating, but spinning is definitely one of those aerobic activities that will GUARANTEE a crazy sweat and sore legs, arms, abs, everything! If you attend spin class regularly, you know many require special spin shoes, and not all spin shoes are not created equally. Sometimes it's hard to find the right balance between quality, comfort AND style. This is where TIEM Athletic steps in!
TIEM is an awesome brand of cycling shoes designed to resemble a classic sneaker, but is fully compatible with every bike in every studio. The BEST part about them? They are comfortable enough to wear before and after you hop off the bike. If you've read enough of my posts, you know I'm a Street-To-Gym Wear kind of girl! I love that these Slipstream Black Geometric sneakers go great with so many leggings in my closet!
I also love that I can actually walk in these shoes without click-clacking around. TIEM clips are recessed, so they feel like regular sneakers after you hop off the bike. Of course, for longer use without wear and tear, you can wear them exclusively for spin class.
These shoes can take your performance to the next level. You won't spend half the class trying to get your feet right on the peddles and your ride will feel a lot smoother. TIEM shoes are priced at $125, comparable to many sneakers--and if you're renting shoes several times a week, you definitely want to invest in a pair.
If you're looking for a multipurpose spin shoe, check out TIEM Athletic for more colors and styles! If you do purchase these, be sure to get the SPD cleats, as they are sold separately (shown in last photo).
Thanks again, TIEM, for providing me with these awesome spin shoes! Do you attend spin class regularly? What's your favorite playlist?
