I wanna see what these look like in white. Is any team riding giro shoes this year?
Anyone have any more info on these? Have a couple pies of the original S-phyre and will be buying new shoes before summer! These look the part!
Forget it, October.

Interesting, I didn't realise shoes had gotten so light! :shock:
Sorry, but I'm just not a fan of all these "nylon fishing like" type of enclosures. :lol:
I had a pair of old Sidis like that about 20 years ago...
I am now on good old fashioned velcro. :noidea:
(granted my shoes weigh almost double that of the Exos :x )

Do you know for what reason? I'm looking to buy a new pair of cycling shoes, the Edge+ Pro are on my list.

New 2020 Specialized shoes (S-Works 8?).
Velokicks on Instagram posted a picture of them worn by Gregor Mühlberger at the Trofeo Pollença-Andratx.
Definitely more vents on the toebox. Looks a bit ugly imo, but more air would be nice.

That toebox seems similar to those of the S-works carbon road shoes from 5-6 years back.
Michael - The Anaerobic Threshold is neither...

Toebox looks like Shimano R320 shoes

you sure? Seems production ready & october isn't a great release window... My bet is on april/may.

Loved that shoe, probably my favorite shoe of all time.

I like white shoes, but in that material, they must be next to impossible to keep clean... unless they ship with a cat trained to lick them clean? :mrgreen:
I need wide shoes and recently got new Shimano ones - they come in black and white but for some reason all the wide ones are only white. They're glossy so I'm hoping that they'll clean off easily but after a few months they never look as good.

A few days after getting them I discovered I could get them from Germany in matt black - a little more expensive but I would have done it.
I'm left handed, if that matters.

Custom S-phyres for MVDP? The hook is on the flap instead of the dial.

Yeah, he's been wearing similarly designed S-Phyres MTB shoes since last May. Apart from the dial being flipped around, they look just like normal current S-Phyres...

This is from 2019 when GCNs Jon did an interview with Adam Hansen about the carbon shoes he was making at the time and since Adam is a bit of a WW I thought I would share this link for those of you who have not seen it. There is also another interview with Adam from 2020 Down Under Tour where they talk Tech and discuss his bike set up and the shoes but I couldnt find the link for the moment.

Nibali, Mollema, Richie and presumably others are still wearing these unreleased Bontrager XXXs.
