    I just got NOS black ones that read Christophe on the leather and have Zefal metal clamps on them. Not sure if they are in other colors. The auction had them listed as Zefal as that was the packaging they came in.

    But can you find some Alfredo Binda straps? Those were the good ones.

    You can get them NOS from Euro-Asia. By the time you're done paying the markup, you're looking at $150-$175.

    What made the Binda straps special was the laminated construction: leather inside, and like a nylon fabric outside. Velo Orange sells "Allara" laminated straps for $33. I don't have any, so I don't know exactly what they're like. But I'd guess that if you didn't like them, Velo Orange would probably take them back unused/not removed from packaging.
