Gold shoes for Olympic champion

Shimano's treat for Marianne Vos

Olympic points race champion Marianne Vos has been given some special footwear to match her gold medal from Beijing.


The custom-made gold SH-R300 road shoes were a gift from Shimano and feature the firm’s Custom Fit technology.

The Dutch 21-year-old, who rides for the DSB team and this year became the first woman to hold world championship titles on the road, track and in cyclo-cross, was delighted with the present.


She said: “These gold road shoes are a reminder of a great race in Beijing. I hope to get some extra morale!”
