Vittoria Lorica 1976 Cycling Shoe – SPD Sole

I really like these shoes…


I think they’re one of the best looking spd/city shoe currently available (if you’re a sartorially inspired rider)…

I’m just a little let down that Vittoria felt the need to add this detailing..


I don’t have a bike from 1976!

That said, the sole looks solid, and when I examined a pair, I was impressed with the overall construction quality.


I’d avoid these though personally speaking…



If Vittoria requires a field test report, I’d be happy to oblige!

Left in the dark….

I was in Zurich recently for a short stay, and I’m impressed with the cycle culture there,a lot of vintage road bikes with gears and a flat bar set up, I saw a Gios, De Rosa, Eddy Merckx and 4 Colnagos, including a Master in Isotar decor and C recordĀ  gruppo with delta’s all being ridden quite nonchalantly… when I went out for a drink one evening, I came across this locked to a post in the dark..a vintage Colnago Super,





apologies for poor picture quality, I only had my Blackberry,

the bike had a Colnago pantographed gruppo!
