Nike Air Zoom Tiempo CTRS Paris Edition.
One of the first shoes designed by urban cyclists for
urban cyclists. The shoe has been adapted from a
cleatless soccer shoe. The sole has been stiffened
for greater pedal control. The lace guard was carried
over from the soccer application to keep them out of
drive train. The proprietary "Air Zoom" insole keeps
the riders feet from experiencing irritation over longer
All those features are well and good but the conversation
piece with these shoes is the fabric. The Paris Editions
are coated in 3M fabric which appears black in daylight,
but when car headlights shine on them at night, they
appear to glow a reflective white.
Cannot wait to get back home and saddle up.
