Believe it or not, this is an SPD compatible cycling shoe.
Building on the success of their popular Commuter Sandal and Springwater cycling shoe, KEEN created the Austin Pedal shoe for men. The waterproof leather with classic Oxford lace design disguises the bike-ready performance of a recessed SPD plate underfoot. The Austin comes prepared for long commutes with a moisture wicking lining and toe-protecting rubber outsole.
For women, KEEN took their Presidio shoe and added SPD compatibility to create the Presidio Pedal.
The Presidio Pedal blends the outsole construction of a lightweight hiking shoe, the style of a downtown street shoe with the SPD-compatible performance of a bike shoe. A full grain waterproof leather upper with durable top stitched construction and a soft leather lining offer style and comfort. A recessed SPD plate allows for clipless efficiency, while an anti-microbial metatomical footbed and rugged outsole with toe coverage provide support and protection.
These shoes will be available Spring / Summer 2010.
