I feel like since Kyle posted about some lady shoes that I should balance the scales and throw in some rad men’s shoes. What you see above is a collaboration between Outlier, purveyors of fine biking goods, and Feit, a small team of shoemakers trained in the art of traditional shoe making. Together they’ve made the Supermarine, a shoe that’s highly water resistant but still extremely comfortable. The specs on these things are crazy, so I’m going to cut and paste them so you see just how much was put into making these:

A full length French vegetable leather outsole provides an excellent combination of flexibility and stiffness, while a two piece Vibram sheet rubber layer ensures solid grip and traction. A cork midsole adds in natural breathability and shock absorption. Everything is sewn together using the traditional handmade Goodyear welt construction. Waxed cotton laces, a 3M reflective heel cap, a discreet lace tuck and a buffalo leather insole with natural latex arch support complete the package.

So basically they’ve created some of the most well made, best looking riding shoes ever. I love that these are simple yet extremely functional. These beauties don’t ship until some time in June, but you can preorder yourself a pair by clicking here.

    those are kinda pricey, but look well worth it. i’m trying to dress more like an adult (over 30) but i would like to see these in a slightly more fun color.

    @Bobby T. – Yeah, I make a conscious effort not to talk about the prices anymore. I prefer to talk about style and design regardless of whether or not someone can afford them or not. More colors could be rad. I’m sure if they sell lots they’d make it in more colors.

    Yeah way too pricey. I think I would get them if they were at the most $150. They ain’t no Jordan’s, more like really nice Vans or Sperry’s.

    @Adrian – So you’re saying you’d only pay that much for a brand name, not because they’re made of the finest materials? That’s sounds pretty dumb to me.

    I ordered a pair of the black ones. Hopefully I like them when they show up!
    Thanks for the tip.
