Perhaps that 2d Mortgage can start up a contract re starting the old Avocet contractor, in Italy or China,
Avocet got other companies to make every thing ..

I think Portland State has a Shoe designer course , State funded training to try io get a Job @ Nike.

slotted pedal cleats for Look pattern

I have a 2009 Pair of Diadoras with Look mounting, so I see I can get the Exustar late production Track cleats or get same type of cleats at yellow jersey in Wisconson, they mount on the 2 back holes of your shoes. Get the angle right and your knees will thank you . As for late production shoes, many Iti shoes still have a pointy toe end that will work nice with the classy steel toe clips. Be sure to get the best anti stretch straps you can get if you want to apply power

A warning about these : I found a new pair in my usual size 9.5, but they fit like size 9. I really do not understand this nonsense, because for shoes all you have to do is label the sizes correctly. I never had this happen in my 59 years, but it also happened at my local New Balance store last year.

Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 in black laceups.

Pedal of choice is KKT Top Run, though I also have KKT Pro Ace and Campagnolo Chorus pedals on two bikes. The Onitsuka sole is not stiff enough for some pedals, like Campagnolo Victory, where more than 30 miles or so results in pain.

I use these with my toe-clip equipped bikes.



A section of the sole is removeable and allows you to put on MTB style cleats if you use those later.

Cheers
