As a warm up to our next weeks urban biking themed event at Classic Bike, we decided to ask around for some suitable shoes to accompany our urban riders from the trails to the office. Though these are not the most suitable footwear for wintertime, at least in Helsinki, the definitely are a nice take on the more sportier choices. The Quoc Pham Fixed (267€) is a minimal, handmade leather shoe, apparently aimed for fixed gear riders, at least name-wise. The sole has no fixing system, but is thin and very smooth. Maybe this gives you a good feel to the road?
The Dromarti Classic Sportivo (220€) is an interesting take on bike-to-boardroom shoe. The upper is handmade from soft leather, and the sole has the standard 2 point SPD fixing system. The Classic series has also a “Race” and “Storica” models with slightly different look and sole solutions.
If you have suggestions for similar footwear, that can take an esteemed gentleman from bike to boardroom, maybe even in the wintertime, please let us know: email@example.com
