I send more time than most looking at them or footwear. Nowadays I'm looking more at what shoes people/Pro's are riding in.
So thought it might be cool to start a thread and sort of spot what shoes the Pro's are in. Sort of like the 'Pro's on Lightweight's' thread. Especially cool if there are some more obscure brands.
Boring start, David Lopez and Tony Gallopin on Sidi's

The has to be a trade off at some point though, as they can novitiate their footwear contacts separately to team stuff. Giving them (in some cases) a little more freedom I would have though?
Whatever the case, I'm just keen to see more so who is on what.
Micky ta mate. Interesting that, at least here in Oz, there's not much of a marketing push at all from Nike with regards to their shoes?
First guess was Peral Izumi because it's their kind of design
What amazes me is that Cancellara or Schleck's brothers for example, succesively wore DMT,Sidi,Specialized then Northwave.
For example, if I'm right, wearing S-Works (really thin toebox with quite arch support) shoes or Northwave (big toebox, really flat) is totally different.
Also, want to give an award for the ugliest shoes since we turn in the third millenary to Emmanuel Sella (here seen on the right):

Nike Cycling by what I know is officially closed but there's still a couple of riders using their shoes (can't recall which ones right now..).
