Vintage Shoes Nov 17, 2009

I’ve been looking for some vintage cycling shoes in my size for some time now. Changing pedals with different cleats every time you ride is a pain in the ass. On one bike I ride modern Sidi road shoes with Look keo sprints, on another I’ve got Mondrian Look pedals and my other road bike has Look Delta pedals. Now I have a separate pair of shoes for each bike. Sure it seems excessive, but some people, like Harry take it to the next level. How? See below.

With period-correct shoes for each of his bikes. A Frejus, Ritchey, Lazaretti and a amazing Lemond. Insanity. Well done man.

Sorry, I had to tag it with “Fashion”. Heh.

    Dunno what shoe size you are but I found some LOOK cycling shoes on eBay for 20 bucks with pedals…they were size 8.5 or 9.5 or something.
