For serious cyclists, SPD is a must when riding, and this system allows for a direct connection between the feet and the drive train. However, most cycling footwear manufacturers tend to gear their design towards full race kits that may look out of place once the cyclist steps off the bike. Enter DZR, who recognized this niche and started to develop sneaker-like cycling shoes that are compatible with SPD. Its latest sneaker, the Midnight, takes influence from casual sneakers in its low top design. On the inside, variable-flex nylon inner shanks enable power to be transferred effectively, and its reflective badge increases safety at night. These shoes are compatible with Shimano, Crank Brothers, ATAC Time or any other cleats with two-bolt system. These shoes are currently available at MISSIONWORKSHOP and DZR stockists around the world.
