Will these match your bartape and helmet?

Notices
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

As odd as it may sound, I think the use of three different kinds of closure systems is even more insulting to my sensibilities than the "aesthetic" choices.

Looks aside...

Having tried the new ratchet they put on the arch strap, I am not sure what they were thinking. It's positively awful.

Hmmm....White/Silver helmet, Black bar tape.....Sure those shoes match. I think the bigger question is will they match any of my jerseys? Maybe one of them. I think I prefer black shoes, thank you.

They look like a promotional shoe. You know... these are all of our colors, straps etc in one shoe for you to look at.

Kinda like a manufacturer painting a new car with each body panel an available color for that car.

I have them in solid white and love them. The closure system works perfectly. These must be Palo Bettini specials. He's a bit over the top when it comes to flash.

Having lived in S. Florida, I can say that these don't stand out enough. In fact they'd be like camo in that environment.

they're a LIMITED EDITION with too little emphasis on the "limited"
