Mating a laced leather upper with a nylon mountain bike sole has allowed Dromarti to create a shoe which – once bedded in – softly cradles the foot yet handles powerful pedalling with ease.
Subtle ﬂex near the toes of the sole goes some way towards making the Dromartis comfortable around town, though the stiffness that makes them so good on the bike limits the distance you’d want to walk in them.
The lustrous brown leather doesn’t look out of place with a modern suit, but choose your socks carefully as punched ventilation holes let poor colour co-ordination out and water in.
