New Chrome Shoes Aug 31, 2009


Chrome has launched their new line of cycling sneakers.


From their site:
We wanted tough shoes we could wear every day – not just on our bikes. Here they are: shoes built to work well in all kinds of situations, with quality materials, solid construction, and simple style.


With details like gusseted tongues, taped and weather-proof seams, Texon board in the front of the shoe for added rigidity, urethane crash padded heel, and weatherproof 1,000 denier uppers, the sneakers should hold up to any use.


You can see more of the colorways here, at their site. They retail for between $70 and $90. I can’t help but notice they look like Chuck Taylors and Chukka boots. If they had more ankle padding, I’d pick up a pair. Regardless, they’re much better than their first shoes! If you’re going to Interbike this year, lemme know what you think of them!

    they actually look like Tretorn ripoffs replicas

    I just got my pair in the mail this morning. I’ve been wearing them for most of the day. I’m not quite sure how I feel about them yet, though.

    The front texture/pattern on the sole kills it for me.

    Just got the Midways yesterday. So far, I really like the skid resistant traction on the sole. Works great with my current wellgo platform pedals. Oh, almost forgot, there’s this really neat expandable strap in the middle of the tongue that tucks your laces in. Very functionable shoe.
