    Vintage/Retro Looking Road Shoes

    Saw some vintage looking cycling shoes in the "recent purchase" thread(link below) was wondering if any other companies make some vintage looking shoes, but with a smaller price tag than the ones attached.


    Specialized 74 road shoe

    Of the 4 or 5 that I've seen, they've all carried a fairly high price tag.

    i kind of figured that, b/c that's usually the case w/ retro stuff.

    What are the other 4 or 5? I'm interested too, and I don't mind the price tag so much.

    Vittoria (not the tires) makes a vintage throwback shoe that's pretty cool. Check out the line here: http://www.vittoria-shoes.com/eng/pr...hp?cat=VINTAGE.

    What I really want to see is a re issue of some of Sidi's more radical late 80s shoes!

    I would also lump the Giro Empire in the retro-themed shoes... well, not in the silver/neon green color scheme. The Rapha Grand Tours. Marresi Eroica.

    Bike Hugger showed a retro SPD Giro shoe in his blog.

    And he linked to the Empire road shoe: (like WhyFi mentioned above)

    empire-patentblack-hero_1.jpg

    It's interesting that there's all these new lace up shoes.

    They're very nice but the ones I tried on were a bit narrow for my D foot.
