CHROME MEN'S SHOES - ROAD
Guess what won't win you any points at the bar? Your shoes click-clacking all over the place. Look, we get that you don't want to swap your SPDs for BMX pedals and Hold Fasts. But, we also don't want to see you slipping to the floor when you're carrying our pitchers to the table. Do yourself a favor, and combine a classic look with the functionality that you need with the Chrome Lower Southside Pro Shoes.
For the uppers, Chrome made the Lower Southside Pro shoes from an oiled, full-grain leather. And while the leather only offers a minimum of protection from water, the weathering and distressing that occurs with age is priceless. To assure comfort, the Lower Southsides feature a supple, padded collar and tongue to act as a buffer between your laces and toe cages or foot straps. The midsole uses a blown rubber wedge to maximize comfort, while the sole has a 100% vulcanized rubber construction. This stiffens up the shoe for a little better power transfer, but mainly, it's to resist the inevitable tattoo of sole wear from your platforms.
The shoes use a lace-up fastening system, and they feature both an embossed and woven Chrome logo on the side of the shoe. For steamy summer days, the Lower Southsides have a polyester quarter panel on the side to cool things off. However, the greatest draw to the Pros are its two-hole cleat compatibility. And to make sure that they don't flop around like SPD-converted sneakers, Chrome added a full-length nylon shank to stiffen up the sole. Also, Chrome used a built-in rocker to make sure that you don't eat it on the first wood floor that you walk on. Believe us, it's embarrassing.
The Chrome Lower Southside Pro Shoes are available in whole and half sizes from 5.0 to 13.0 and in the colors Black/tweed.
