These Giro Republic cycling shoes offer up a nice bit of old school styling with a leather esque look and laces! No carbon sole or ratchet systems here, they are designed for casual riding. I think vintage steel is the bike of choice for wearing these, or fixed, or anything really. I wouldn’t want to get them dirty though. I like the rubber on the sole, should help reduce any slipping. They come with the Supernatural footbed technology too for comfy feet. Available for $150 in white, black and lead (grey). More about them on Giro.

    Very nice. I’m loving it!

    Too bad there isn’t a brown one.

    Brown is the ideal colour for an about town cycling shoe. Black is so formal and white is simultaneously an invitation for scuffs and looks silly, like something from the Jersey Shore program.

      Yeah i was thinking the same, having convinced myself i needed a pair i couldn’t decide and thought it’s a shame there’s not a brown. Grey is probably the best choice of the 3.
