S24O what, now? Does that jumble of letters and numbers that make up the name actually mean anything? Yes, it does. It's claimed to be an utterance by Grant Petersen of Rivendell Bicycle Works fame, and stands for 'sub 24-hour overnighter'.

Stylewise, they fall in line with DZR's other style-conscious footwear and follow the brand's belief "that style can be infused with function to create a better cycle-centric lifestyle."

Loaded touring or just rolling around the city, the mid-high top looks pretty decent and the leather appears soft and supple, with DZR stating the uppers are "tough, breathable, and break in like a good pair of work gloves."
