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.
