Northwave Tribute Triathlon Shoes $189.95
Make up for lost time.
The swim leg didn't go quite as well as you'd hoped (you'd swear someone moved that third buoy) but you're well-positioned to start making up time immediately with the help of the Northwave Men's Tribute Triathlon Shoe. It's clipped to your pedals already, just waiting for you to jump on the bike and go. The Tribute's easy-entry system includes a wide reversed hook-and-loop strap that locks down in the open position so you can start pedaling without the strap getting in the way. An extra-large heel loop also helps you slide into the shoe on the go, so you don't waste a second.
- Thin, stiff Carbon Composite sole allows for maximum power transmission to your pedals without weighing you down
- Removable rubber pad in the heel gives you a touch of traction if you need to run through the transition area
- Microfiber inserts in the upper, as well as vents in the heel, allow air to circulate around your foot
- Omega heel features grip, protection, rigidity and stability for maximum propulsion
- Stiff, lightweight Performance Pro footbed transmits power to the pedals and provides arch support

Great tri shoe!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I dig these. Ive used them a few times and found they fitted pretty well for my narrow-ish foot. They have some pretty neat features and the carbon they use in the soles is great. I didnt find they were ridiculously stiff but they responded really well to putting a bit of power into the bike. I havent used them heaps but I would say they'd be a great addition to anyones tri set-up if they were looking for a really good shoe.
Does this shoe run large/small? I have...
Does this shoe run large/small? I have learned that every size chart is different or completely wrong.
I found their sizing to be pretty bang on. If you've had your foot measured properly on a Brannock at a shoe shop or somewhere similar then you'll have a better idea of your true size. I didnt have any issues with the NW sizing.
I bought this shoes to use on triathlons since they state they can be used without socks. So far, the experience has had it's positive and negative aspects. I have used them in 2 tris by now (one using socks, the other without), and also for training and some longer rides.
I had suffer minor scratches here and there when using without socks, but nothing too uncomfortable, and luckily that have not affect me during my competitions. I would just love that they caused no scratches at all, but I guess I will have to get used to that ...
