enough pics of your bikes, how about some pics of your SHOES!

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

enough pics of your bikes, how about some pics of your SHOES!

This is getting weird. Nevertheless, I pledge to photograph my shoes when I return home tonite.

Sorry. Bit too kinky for me. I stick with the old school bike porn.

However, for those that want a real thrill, perhaps I will post photos of my 30 year old Bata Bikers.

Being a mechanical watch guy, these are about the only quartz I'll wear
Ooh, nice watches and bicycles. Few things get me thinking about opening the wallet more than those.

Here are the shoes that I use. These Dettos are pretty old. I also have some Bata Bikers that I'll use on rare occasions.

I'll go along with that statement. Understated Movado's for me, that Rolex crap is too cliche'd.

Although cliche', the Rolex is a quality watch.

I prefer Patek Philippe & Vacheron Constantin. Too bad I have to choose between a bike or a watch.

Check out Time Zone for some eye candy.

Lake CX160; Lake sandal; old (circa 1993) Specializeds held together with shoe goo, but too comfy to trash.
