Lance Armstrong LIVESTRONG Jersey from NIke!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I don't know where this jersey is made, but most high end Nike cycling gear is made in Italy. Quality of the Nike Tour de France jerseys and USPS team jerseys is really excellent. You have to decide if top quality is worth $90 to you. Everyone has different values.

Is Nike donating all proceeds from jersey sales to the LAF? That's extremely generous of them.

Depends on your body shape. The Nike Tour de France jerseys are sized for bike racers. They fit the same chest sizes as US T-shirt sizes, but only if you have a thin waist and thin shoulders. I don't know if the LAF jersey uses the same sizing system.

I don't know the revenue share from the LiveStrong Jersey, but there was grumbling in the Washington Post a couple weeks ago about Lance's 10//2 clothing and cycling gear line. For each article of clothing sold, from a $20 t-shirt to $100 jersey, only $1 goes forth to the LAF. So keep buying wristbands, it does the same charity as the 10//2 line.

The shoes he's wearing now arent available yet. They're like the above pictured ones, but with a 10/2 twist. Im sure they'll be available to the public at the end of the year...with a $300 price tag as well.

I am very sure about it-I have already emailed them on how to return it. It is probably euro size 4 or 5 jersey......

His new shoe for this year is on Cyclingnews.com under the tech section. He wanted more of an extreme curve in the sole this year, check it out, it is quite a curve.
