Adam Hansen('s shoes)

Anyone know where Adam Hansen sources the carbon fibre for his shoes? Or how he goes about actually moulding the carbon into sole shape? Or what he uses for his uppers? Just that home-making bike shoes sounds kind of do-able and I wonder what the barriers to entry are.

I think he should wear regular cycling shoes, because his home-made set just isn't working for him in the Giro.

He really ruined my fantasy Giro team, scoring all of 8 pts...
