ones that look like chuckers ideally
could try these
look nice but was looking for something a little less chunky and i guess lighter (nicer with shorts)
or the northwave version (which I actually quite like..the shame)
wow I quite like these. Not for serious riding mind, but would be nice for cruising around on a nice summers night. Do you own a pair PJ?
no mike, i don't. i was considering getting a pair, but then realised i would have to kill myself if i did, so changed my mind.
i can see you in them though, at the front, a little echapee.
you can just bolt your cleats onto a pair of decent trainers with thick soles. you just need to take the insole out and cut a slot in the sole big enough to take your pedals bolt them in, and pop the insole back in, not as stiff as a proper spd shoe, but theyre good enough for round town use
With those white and black Adidas shoes you could step off your fixie bike and play 18 holes.
I've said it before. These rule. You're so wrong Pj you Kill wrong of the land of wrong.
get some then
I would but I have no need.
i'd get them if they came in titanium.
i see what you did
well done. got to get up early to get one over nimhbus.
...how about another titanium gag then?
I'm afraid you'll just have to endure the "GAYER!" comments like the rest of us.
I bought a pair of the shimano DX ones a while back thinking they might be a good trade off between skate shoe looks and spd friendly function but to be honest, they're keeping their 'new' looks a bit too long - and they're also bit dorky - i a kind of 'i need these to straighten out my odd shaped ankles' way.
The pub test last sunday night proved this theory - with lots of smirkey looks from unwashed box-room-masturbator-student-types.
oh and the spd-jesus-creepers - wrong on too many levels.
Though it's tempting to buy a pair and wear them with chunky socks and my WAC shirt.
I have this problem - Pearl Izumi used to do some nice regular-looking shoes - Fluid and another one - I have it in blue. PI have quite a wide fitting, which suits me well. Shimano do some reasonable lace-ups, but they are too narrow for me. Any suggestions?
Pearls are nice, i love the look of Sidis, they look mean and technical all at the same time. if i had the budget and any sense of style i'd go Nalinis all the way home.
As always the best stylings are the road shoes not the mtb. but if i am going ass over tit i want a pair of two-tone shiney gold shoes flying over my head. 40% of the time that works every time!
i am sure i read about some a few years ago that were fantastic, looked like black chuckers, low cut, slim profile but they were in the process of releasing them... just cant remember who!
I have a pair of Specialized sumona's - comfortable, stylish, hard -wearing, they make a mens and womens version.
These Shimano spinning shoes look quite funky - not too crazy. I reckon they'd only be good for summer/dry rides as they are intended for indoor use in the main
Bought these recently, simple, not shouty:
