chrome shoes - midway

got hooked up with a pair of these during Interbike. great comfy shoes with a little bit of cycling thought put into them from a brand that 'gets it'. The coolest feature of these shoes is the reinforced fiberglass shank in the midsole that helps the sneakers feel more like a cycling shoe when riding. they still flex from the ball of your foot forward, but they don't flop and flex under your feet while pedaling.

From the Chrome website:

We fused our tough cordura with durable suede to create a style that is uniquely Chrome with a toughness we could rely on. Like our bags, we make them with the most industrial materials we could find and build them to last.

  • Made of our Weatherproof 1,000 denier Cordura and Grey Suede with back-padding
  • 100% vulcanized construction
  • Low profile design to better fit into a toe cage
  • Re-enforced nylon/glass fiber shank to support the midsole
  • Board lasted sole to eliminate pedal hot spot
  • Skid resistant contact rubber on the sole
  • Polyurethane contoured crash pad insole
  • Durable rubber heel cup with reflective safety hit
  • Lace garage so laces don’t get caught in your chain
  • Steel anglets to keep laces from fraying
