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)

Show off your shoes!

Here's a thread to show off what awesome footwear you've been riding in! Be it clipped or clipless, new or old and what works and what doesn't!

Do you bring an extra pair once you reached your destination? Or do you walk in what you ride? Recommend a pair! Write a review!

Let us all marvel at your intricate tastes in fixed gear-riding-footwear.

P.S. Please do not bash someone's choice of shoes, to each their own. Constructive criticisms are welcomed though.



These are my goto shoes for riding : http://www.taniobuwie.com/images/lar...-64_05_LRG.jpg

I like your shoes, I just recently modified a pair of my old Chucks to clipless using CrankBros cleats and pedals. Haven't done any actual riding/commute with them yet due to snow on the ground but they felt pretty solid when testing them out around the neighborhood. I'll try post a picture of them later when I'm not on my phone.

The jam. Kind of wish I'd bought an extra pair.

Pretty unremarkable SPD mountain shoes. They're super durable though and I like the fit.

I can vouch for mavics; I snagged a pair when they were on a steal on bonktown/chainlove.

Or Adidas Sambas. Both are thin-soled, the Sambas are a little pointier and easier to get into clips.

Commuting is just some Shimano SPD's for comfort, but If I'm going to library/shops etc... it's these custom puppies.
Cannondale MTB hard soles inserted into a pair of old converse shoes for casual comfort.





Just googled around and followed an online howto blog.
