Tried a few searches for any mention of these shoes on the forum and came up short.
There is not a lot of review or material on these shoes from the layman out there to read.
The shoes are intriguing, especially the laced Vito model.
And some of the color schemes are downright 'pimp.'
Soles have a resemblance to Bont, perhaps to much of a resemblance?

For those interested and too lazy to search the web, here's some links:

https://dlkiller.cc/

I am not affiliated with or an owner of (yet) DL Killer shoes.
I have a growing collection of Giro Empires though, hence these shoes caught my eye.
Any feedback on these would be welcome.

Interesting. Nice wide forefoot and toe box area. I've been considering a pair of Suplest, but will check out the Di Lucas.

Thanks!

I would be very surprised if these shoes weren't being made by Lake to DLKiller's custom specification. Which isn't a bad thing.

I've always wondered if there was any connection to the disgraced Danilo Di Luca, nicknamed Assassin.

On the Di Luca bike site they say the carbon on their lightest make is made using t 800 carbon ..I wonder if that’s the same t 800 carbon that you see on the eBay China bikes that sell for around £300 and weigh the same? Anyone know,I suspect it is


You mean a athlete who got caught doping and tells it how it is and makes no excuses.
Di Luca reveals details of his doping in hard-hitting autobiography. "I've no regrets at all. I lied. I cheated, I did what had to do to finish first". Top man :thumbup:

Bingo.
Seen them on hand and spoke with the man himself; I would go for this option only if I wanted something custom.
