With the first cycling specific shoe made back in 1956, Adidas has a long tradition in cycling. Many great champions rode in Adidas shoes like Rudi Altig or Jan Ullrich, but none made bigger impact than certain Eddy Merckx. The fact that the Cannibal himself won pretty much everything in shoes with 3 stripes made them an instant hit. But it was not just the endorsement, it was also a proof of sheer quality and absolute coolnes.
This pair comes straight from the early 90s. It has high adjustability. There are velcro straps near the toe under the velcro flap.
US: 8 1/2
FR: 42 2/3
Closure: Velcro flap over velcro straps

SVB quality and attention to detail is second to none! Fantastic customer service, very accommodating and helpful. An error was made in delivery and the SVB team efficiently sorted the problem the same day. I was gifted the original item and sent a brand new item, dispatched the same day. Lovely products and very helpful staff. 5*GB
Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
