Sometimes things happen behind the scenes that I’m not even aware of. Case in point, today a box arrived from DZR Shoes ( @DZRShoes ), they’re a new company specializing in SPD Sneakers for urban cyclists. They collaborated with Mission Workshop on their Rondels and now they’ve got a website loaded with a full line of sneakers.
Check out more photos below, including how you can get your hands on a pair!
Inside the box were 10 boxes marked with “Size43” through “Size45”. I opened them up and boom, Ovis SPD sneakers. I’m beside myself. They’re Prolly is not Probably editions! Only ten were made by hand at Ovis and I’m planning on giving away three pairs here.
DZR describes their Ovis sneaker as:
A non padded, classic profile in a midtop, designed to be simple yet unique, that would be both timeless and modern. Made out of a soft supply leather, the Ovis will make you forget you even have cycling shoes on.
Fully SPD compatible!
With tons of grip and traction.
I’m super stoked on these. They look a lot like half-cabs but have an extra-stiff sole due to the nylon shank inside.
These are slightly different than the standard Ovis with an all-black toebox and all black leather. So stealth! I’ll be setting up a contest shortly to give three pairs away. The rest are going to local NYC people who will puttem to the test!
Expect more big things from DZR Shoes in the future!
