    Brooklyn Machine Works Adidas

    I consider this related to the ss/fg forum, these are a shoe designed by Brooklyn Machine Works and Adidas, only problem is they're impossible to find.
    Has anyone found them anywhere?

    In this photo they're next to the original Eddy Merckx's they're designed after.

    Those original Merckxs are awesome.

    The Adidas I don't dig too much. I've never heard of them though, so I wouldn't know where to get them anyway.

    Yeah, well the originals were genuine rigid sole cycling shoes meant to be used with slotted cleats, clips and straps. The Adidas are just for show. You might just as well get some Sambas. Or some old Etonic Trans Am Trainers like mine.

    They make sense for soccer but for just walking around I hate the look of them. My sambas tongue slides to the side and if it had a huge extension it'd be like a wing jutting sideways out of my shoe

    But I guess if I wanted to look super stylish I'd wear Mephistos. Why u so expensive!

    i think i could go for the OP shoes...

    i use Sambas (long or short tongue, whichever is on sale) for fencing.

    Yeah they do, they're recessed into the shoe.

    I think a ss/fg shoe thread would be great...

    Shoes like that aren't good for clipless, because laces alone won't do a good job holding the foot in the shoe when pulling up. Proper clipless shoes have either velcro or ratcheting straps at the top for this. The old shoes didn't need this, because the pedal strap held the foot and shoe down when pulling up.

    I saw these on Prolly's blog a while back, they were NOS and they look like another color variant (which I like more). Need to reissue these suckers too.
