8th Gen: Walking in two worlds

A good friend of mine turned me on to these last night. Thanks Matt Lord! All of us as cyclist's are alway looking out for ways to customize our bikes, clothes, hats, helmets, and bags. So we can stand out or have a topic of conversation when we run into each other. These shoes are no different. One off designs from 8th Gen. The solo designer of these shoes is Louie Gong. I really love the work on these. It speaks to the Alaskan in me, and reminds me of a lot of Artist friends from AK and the NW. Plus they're put on Vans, (which are a staple in a Cyclist's life) Now some of might say the price point is a bit high, but you get a one off design, never to be used again on another shoe, and really most high-end sneakers coming out these days start at around $150 on up. I don't think I would ride in these, but bring these custom heaters out after a race or to an event.

Deets on ordering here...
