There are just a few collaborations in sport between a brand and a star that are comparable to that of Adidas and Eddy Merckx. The great "Cannibal" endorsed cycling shoes of this German brand so well, that they became and instant icon and pretty much everyone wanted a pair. Or two. And this popularity (but also sheer quality and great looks) resulted in prices that were not far from extreme.
In the late 60s and then 70s, he triumphed basically in every possible race in a black leather Adidas shoes. Adidas continued to produce cycling shoes under his name also after Eddy hang his bike on a nail and in 1980s some extremely cool and colourful designs were produced. Just like these.

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
