Traditional Cycling Shoes (and fully sprung shepherds boots)
Not a review yet, just a heads up.
Gentlemen of a certain age might have lamented the passing of the flat soled touring shoe... I didn't because I didn't know they had gone until I started to look for a new pair over the last few weeks.
My cleated Italian toe eaters are doing fine, but I miss my flatties so hit the interweb.
A myriad SPD and look clipless pedal options, but nothing plain and flat to be seen...
But I've found them! Here
No cleats on these, just a rigid flat sole that works very well with toeclips and quill pedals (I know, I know... ). Hard to describe why they're so good, but if you're of a certain age....
While on that site it's worth a look around.
Fully Sprung Shepherds boots were the Holy Grial for knowledgeable hill walkers before the lightweight boot revolution. They cost about £100 in 1985, so £165 isn't too unreasonable 26 years later. Here they are... available in vibram, hobnails, tackets or plain leather soles
I don't need the boots just now, but I've ordered the Cycling shoes and will update this after I've used them for a whileJust do stuff. The kit doesn't have to be perfect.
