This season we wanted to review different shoes since a lot of people were asking for it.

The Bontrager foray is a versatile cycling shoe perfect for trail riding, cyclocross and gravel and it is perfect for me. For this review I decided to test them for gravel biking.

When I received the shoes, the first thing I observed was how sturdy the shoes looked. Over the course of my testing, it really did not disappoint at this level. From heavy rocks to a hard fall, the Foray did not flinch at all. The scuff saver is a great feature that saved my shoes a couple of times.

Equipped with a single BOA® L6 Dial for a precision fit and easy micro-adjustments the Foray did not loosen often like the Garneau Hillibilli. Once in a while I needed to adjust it on the go. The shoes additionally have an adjustable hook and loop strap that provides a second adjustment.

On the sole level, the Bontrager Foray as a nylon composite sole that provides stiff yet walkable performance with a great grip. The power transfer was great without compromising the flexion of the shoes when needed.

The shoe is wide and true to size. I wear size 45 in every shoes I own, and it was the same for the Foray.

After more than 1,000 km with the Bontrager Foray it is my favorite cycling shoes so far. At a price of $224.99, it is a great investment with excellent performance and durability.

Ever since he can remember he was riding bikes not being attracted to video games. In his teenage years he was racing bikes until he had a big accident that slowed him down and at a certain point he stopped riding. It is few years later that came he back on a bike and got the ‘’bug’’ again to be more serious about it and started a bike related blog. It is after a trip during covid that he realized that it would be great to talk about all his outdoor passions but with the perspective to inform the regular non technical people. This is how Allday magazine was born.
