Shimano Brings Back the SPD Sandal

Remember these? Well after watching NOS pairs fetch up to $900 on eBay, Shimano realized it might be time to re-issue the SD50 SPD sandals. So today, on the 25th anniversary of the SD50, Shimano has released a special edition model, SD-501A, in a unique colorway. Inspired by Shimano’s second-generation SPD sandals, the new SD-501A delivers a sleek, minimalistic design with a dark navy upper and special logo accents. These sandals are available now in sizes 38-48 for $130.

Head to Shimano to see more information and to your local dealer to see a pair in person.

Bedrock Sandals Just Got Even Better

This summer, and fall and even a few weeks of winter, all I wore were my Bedrock Sandals. On and off-the-bike, even. They are the lightest, most comfortable and most MUSA sandals I’ve ever owned, so when I heard they got even better, I wanted to share the news.

The new Cairns feature a new footbed, new hardware, and refined fit. For cycle touring, or everyday use, I recommend the Cairn 3D. For wet and wild conditions, check out the Cairn Pro and for ultralight the Classics are for you.

Bedrock makes these in California and I just love everything they do. You can read all about the updates at the Bedrock Blog.
