In 2009 Bontrager released their first ever cycling shoe line. After teaming up with Esoles in order to get thousands of foot scans. The result was a well fit shoe, with replaceable arch support and a bargain compared to other shoes. The line was very in depth with women, men and triathlon shoes. (Personally, I have two pairs and I love them!)
For 2010 they are going even deeper with the line and adding more color. The women are staying pretty subtle but the mens line have a lot of orange through out.
The comment was made on my Basic Short article that cycling clothes aren’t always needed. I believe this is true so I made the comment on Twitter to see what everyone thinks or wears. The response is overwhelming and now I sit wishing I had used hash tags in twitter to be able to keep all the comments together for you all to read.
The answers were wide spread from “Yes, every time I ride I wear cycling clothes” to “No, I don’t own spandex or even a technical t-shirt.” Now I’m doing some research on well priced clothing that can double as cycling and everyday wear.
