A cycling shoe you can wear in the skreets!

Though not originally designed for fixed gears, Nike has designed a new SPD compatible shoe that is more street friendly than traditional cycling shoes. Finally, you can ride your bike and not look like you just got back from an alien clogging festival. Nike developed the Nike Dunk Gyrizo in order to welcome BMX to the Olympics. The Gyrizo is specially designed for cycling. The kicks feature Kevlar lace and metal grommets to maximize durability. Meanwhile, its rubber and thinner midsole allows a rider to walk easily before and after races. The look is a little gangster for me but they are a good alternative to a lot of the other shoes out there.

i think they are already available. i heard about these and when i was looking them up to write about it, it was crazy how many websites are dedicated to street culture shoes like special edition dunks...it was all over the place. shooot, they need some neon and fat laces.
