Vittoria 1976 Shoe

vittoria-1976-black-prominent vittoria-1976-bottom Vittoria has a line of shoes seldom seen in the United States, with these SPD compatible throwback shoes one of the more interesting parts of the line. Superb Bicycle recently imported a batch of them, and sent us these images to share. Handmade in Italy from long wearing, lightweight perforated Lorica these shoes feature a standard two-bolt SPD cleat interface and a sensible sole with a recessed cleat. Here’s to hoping more shoes along these lines become available, ushering in some walkable clipless choices beyond skate and hiking boot style footwear.

    [...] If Vittoria can make SPD-compatible shoes without dirty great clumpy soles then why can't everyone else? http://urbanvelo.org/vittoria-1976-shoe/ [...]
