Older Diadora Cycling shoes, Help me identify and find these!

I found an archive thread about shoes for toe clips and someone posted a link,
http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...20Road%20Shoes

These shoes are gorgeous but that link is screwy because I can't find that shoe on nashbar's website. I'm really interested in these shoes but I can't find a model or any website that mentions them.

I'm sure one of you out there recognizes these.

Thanks!

There's another Diadora model for toe clips still available on Nashbar. I don't know anything about them, but ...

"Diadora Ergo Road Shoe"
Reg $129.99 Now $49.99 61% Off!

Not quite the same kind of shoe (different color, different sole types, and the Ergos have an actual cleat).

Ah nice. Do you really think they are for toe clips, the soles seem really rigid(good for riding of course) but I'm looking for something I can walk around in too.

I found a pair on Ebay, but they are much too small. The seller called them "lombardia" by Diadora

shoes for toe clips should also be rigid. The only shoes I know of that are walkable and attach you to the bike are mountain biking shoes with spd clipless pedals. There used to be "touring shoes" that were walkable, but they didn't have cleats.

Nike and Adidas make some recessed cleat shoes for clipless that are pretty nice for just walking around.

edit:for riding with clips, I find Adidas Sambas work great, they are pretty stiff, but still normal shoes.
