    vintage cycling shoes

    I've got a pair of nice Italian leather shoes I'd part with--I went clipless a long time ago. They're big, like size 12-1/2-13, and definitely used but in very decent shape. The've got three slots for traditional cleats--they're made by Maresi, if that means anything to you (it doesn't to me.) Send me a private message if you're interested.

    Unfortunately, I think the German site is an online cycling magazine (my German is a bit rusty though, I could be wrong). I can't find a place to order the shoes.

    I think I found a link - http://www.bela-radsport.de/

    I think they are 169 Euros, not cheap, but probably well worth it if you have the means. I'll email them to get more info.

    Does anyone remember the Bata Biker shoe? (Popular in the 70s and 80s... lace-up canvas with a rubber-covered toe.) I still have a pair around here somewhere. They ran about $20. I went through several pairs of them as a touring shoe.

    Those were great. Inexpensive and very functional. I have a pair left and they are perfect for running errands.

    Last spring I got a pair of Bata cycling shoes NOS in a box of old parts at a bike shop closeout auction. I paid $5 for them and a ton of parts. They had maybe 10 more pairs of these shoes in boxes of parts. I should have bought more.

    I emailed them in my really bad German and they replied in not quite as bad English. The price is 149 Euros (for Look, Campagnolo and Shimaino SL cleats) and 32 Euros for shipping. Too spendy for me but the right shoe for someone else.

    intron, many thanks for the bottle cage clamps, they arrived last night. I'm looking forward to getting them onto my bike, after a little polishing up.

    Hey for shoes I have these, but they will only fit if you can squeeze into a small 43.

    80s Rossi cycling shoes 3_01-08-07.JPG

    The second photo shows a damaged heel and missing cleat ... but I have a good pair - the ebay seller sent a replacement pair, NOS with both cleats.

    These are 80s Rossi shoes, thin leather uppers and stiff plastic bottoms. I got em on ebay before I sort of chickened out on the slotted cleats thing (some say they raise your risk of injury). I got a pair of (size 9) Adidas Sambas instead for cycling in toeclips & straps. I wear size 9 street shoes for a snug fit, 9 1/2 for roomier. These 43s are on the snug side for me, narrow too, but you are welcome to em if you can use em.

    again, thanks for the kind offer.
