The toils of toe cages will do a number on your shoes. In fact, bicycle commuting is nothing short of devastating on just about everything that you own. With a host of unpredictable elements to engage on every block, it's about time that you take hold of whatever security that you can. We recommend starting at the touch points, and in this instance, the feet. Chrome's Southside Shoes not only offer protection from the urban environment, but their throwback skate aesthetic will blend in when you're off of the bike, too.For the uppers, Chrome made the Southside shoes from an oiled, full-grain leather. And while the leather only offers a minimum of protection from water, the weathering and distressing that occurs with age is priceless. To assure comfort, the Southsides feature a supple, padded collar and tongue to act as a buffer between either your laces, toe cages, or foot straps. The midsole uses a blown rubber wedge to maximize comfort, while the sole has a 100% vulcanized rubber construction. This stiffens up the shoe for a little better power transfer, but mainly, it's to resist the inevitable tattoo of sole wear from your platforms.The shoes use a lace-up fastening system, and they feature both an embossed and woven Chrome logo on the side of the shoe.The Chrome Southside Shoes are available in whole and half sizes from 5.0 to 13.0 and in the colors Black, Grey, and Tan.

I rode out there a little more than 2 hours earlier today and just wanted to say thanks to the people who have made and maintained a great singletrack setup. I love the variety of trail types and the immaculate condition of the trails. To make it even better, the weather was perfect and met some gre ... Read More »
I am trying to figure out if it is my new fork or the moister in the ground or roots?

I rode the Southside loop at Croft twice today, first clockwise and then counterclockwise. Trails were nice and dry.
Saw lots of wildlife, including three shady-looking characters on mountain bikes. Sorry if I appeared to be anti-social guys but no lights on my bike and I wanted to get back ... Read More »
