Vintage look shoes?

Hello, I am looking for vintage looking modern three hole cleat bottom shoes. Or some mid 80s shoe brands that my Look cleats would work with? Miracle that the width would be wider also? Holiday dreaming. Any thoughts, Thanks road195

The Adidas cycling shoe is a recent issue that evokes earlier designs, and it fits well: https://www.adidas.com/us/the-road-c...es/FW4457.html

If you want to treat yourself. The road shoe is 3 hole.

Very nice shoes, but they are not for wide feet. I have a nearly new pair of 2-holes that I sadly need to put in the sale section.

Idea: use your regular (toe clip) shoes and cover them up with an old pair of sweat socks like they used to do before someone invented booties - Flahutie tip.

I don't think I ever had real booties that would fit in my clips. Clipless was a big advance in that regard.

Vintage feet were squished into shoes a la Cinderella's step sisters. Not for us.

Those, Crono CV 1 look good, but again maybe I can take out the insoles and order bigger size?

The US site has been out of stock (in most sizes) for months with no end in sight for the shortage. But UK and EU sites seem to have all sizes available, with the added bonus of their marvelous crimson: https://www.adidas.co.uk/the-velosam...es/H04705.html
Ive no clue why their US availability is so poor.

I’ve no clue why their US availability is so poor.
Maybe there was a restock? I checked the URL that I posted earlier, and it’s the US site. All sizes appear to be available to order in black.

Edit: You’re talking about the Velosamba, but I mean the cycling shoe, which is different.

My mistake, youre correct. Ive been interested in a pair of velosambas for months now and I automatically assume everyone else is talking about the same adidas model.

Specialized 74 has been my favorite roadie shoe. Nice blend of modern functionality with retro style. I know the boa mechanism does not get much love in the C&V camp but they look right at home on resto mod steel.

74s were an S-Works level shoe offered in a limited edition run. Alas, they can only be found on the used market these days. I grabbed a couple pair lightly used that are now heavily used.

Never tried them, and they might run narrow, but they look good and may be worth a look.
