Fi’zi:k: The Eloquence of Movement Project
mi_sr_nere_RAZZLE

Why is it that the raddest shoes are always the ones never slated for public consumption? Case in point: the Eloquence of Movement Project that Fi’zi:k is promoting.

A little backstory: 2014 is David Millar’s final season of professional racing. He wants to go out with a bang, raising money for a charity and exploring his career as a pro through a series of conceptual cycling shoes.

These shoes were designed by VCRC Style Council in partnership with Fi’zi:k and will be auctioned off for the Small Steps Project.

Each pair was hand made in Italy and are completely insane – like the Milano Sanremo editions pictured above.

Head over to Fi’zi:k to see what all is on the auction block.

Check out this charity Mosaic is throwing for the National Inclusion Project:

Mosaic Cycles is teaming up with Shimano, Fox Racing Shocks, fi’zi:k, Continental Bicycle Tires, Crank Brothers, and Lizard Skins to create a 27.5” wheel mountain bike that will benefit The National Inclusion Project. The Bike will be on display at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Charlotte North Carolina March 14th with the show through the The Pro’s Closet. 100% of the proceeds raised will go to The National Inclusion Project an organization that was founded in 2003 with the mission of working with and supporting groups across the country that open doors for ALL children to learn, live, and play together.

The idea for a charity bike came about soon after NAHBS 2013. “While working for fi’zi:k I frequently visited Aaron Barcheck and Kevin Batchelor at Mosaic and the thought of making a bike for a charity came up in conversation and they were 100% behind the idea.” Said Joe Anderson. “When I mentioned my son had recently been diagnosed with Autism we decided to select a beneficiary that assisted children with disabilities all over the country, The National Inclusion Project fit the bill.” Anderson continued “Every company I contacted about contributing to this project said yes without hesitation, all the parts, time, and labor were donated.”

Bid on this bike over at the Pro’s Closet eBay store.
