DZR Minna Review
DZR has become a major player in the world of urban cycling shoes, and their latest offerings appear to be securing their reputation as one of the top cycling shoe companies.
The Minna is a good-looking, well-padded, casual-looking, SPD-compatible shoe that borrows design elements from skate, BMX and even soccer shoes.
Whereas the first pair of DZR shoes that I tested had very flexible soles and minimal padding in the uppers, the Minna feature highly padded uppers and a considerably stiffer sole. The result is a shoe that feels a lot more secure around the heel, and one that feels like it’s transferring lots of power to your pedals.
Off the bike, the Minna aren’t quite as easy to walk in as their Ovis or Strasse models, but they’re shoes that you can wear all day long (provided you don’t do an unusual amount of walking at your 9-5).
The Minna features a metallic logo plate and a reflective badge on the heel. Vegans will have to look elsewhere, as they’re made from smooth and suede leather, in addition to canvas.
Available in European sizes 37-47, the Minna shoes retail for $95. Check out www.dzrshoes.com.
