Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

New Clipless shoes for everyday wear by DZR

http://dzrshoes.com/products/men/

Apparently, these are the guys responsible for the Mission Workshop shoe as well.

Looks like the shoes will be $85 for a pair.

I'd love to see something a little more office appropriate, but these are a hug step up from anything else currently available.

I just hope that you don't hear the grinding or click of the clips while walking around, it would be nice to wear a pair for my commute to class. I have a pair of the Shimano SH-MP66W and you can still hear the click, so I hope these are recessed a little more.

QFT.

All I can say is HELLO IMPULSE PURCHASE.

I just wish they had velcro straps. They make me feel a bit more secure.

If I paid for anything made by Mission workshop I'd feel shafted.

If the soles are as stiff as they should be for clipless, then I still wouldn't want to walk around in them for any long distances.

Except that the Rondels look better than any of those, and are 100% leather.

The Ovis is leather too and looks nice. Which is probably why it's the same price as the Rondels.


For those wondering: on the Rondels, eggbeater clips are 100% sub-flush and don't scrape at all. 99% sure these will be the same way, since it's the same manufacturer.

they are all very ugly and will look worse with wear, but at least these are cheaper.

I have a pair of old blue Shimano's that looks similar. They reminds me of Van MBX shoes form the late 70's

i guess if he doesn't care about how stupid he looks in one of those undersized fedoras, he doesn't care about having chain crud on his jeans either
