Cycling Related/Inspired Clothing/Shoes

Supercorsa Vans

Kind of looking forward to these guys. These shoes are loosely inspired by the design of old cycling shoes, low profile, narrow laces etc but with a rubber sole instead of a hard leather/plastic one. The colors of the shoes correspond to the colors of the classification jerseys in the Giro D'Italia. Unfortunately for fans of the Giro, which starts on May 8th this year, these don't come out until July and besides the design inspiration, nothing about these makes them particularly suitable for cycling.

Futura x Descente Packable Jacket

These are FUTURA branded Descente cycling jackets that pack into a small pouch. I thought this was worth mention because Descente is based out of Boulder (though theres no factory store where you can get these) and because we've seen FUTURA collaborate with the bike industry before; the one that sticks out most in my mind is the FUTURA x Colnago Master.

But with a $400 pricetag, I don't think I'll be picking up a new Descente jacket any time soon.
