So about as soon as I got back up north, I headed to Portland for Kaeti’s birthday! While I was there, I thought I’d give 503 Bike Polo a ring, and join a few games. They told me to show up at the Adidas North American headquarters, they were there to play a few games for a meet and greet. While I’m there, they bust out a prototype shoe, that wicked number you see up there.
I like when new companies release new bike products, and shoes are probably my biggest complaint with the industry. Every single “casual” shoe I’ve tried with the exception of DZR (which are comfortable but fall apart in a couple of months) still feels like wearing a bike shoe, complete with heel walking and crack/popping while I walk around. These looked like they would have the same problem, so I tried my best to head them off and tell them to recess it a whole lot more.
Other than that though, I think these shoes are baller. The yellow stripe around the shoe is all reflective, and the mallets in the tongue are a nice touch. Also, FUCK YES HI-TOPS. That is all.
