Outlier/Feit "Supermarine" Cycling Shoes

Outlier/Feit Supermarine cycling shoes
Leave it to Outlier to create even more dashingly desirable bicycling apparel that's outside of my meager price range. The princes of high fashioned, high priced cycle-centric clothing hit yet another seemingly pitch perfect note with their entry into the ever-competitive world of feet covers by collaborating with independent shoemaker, Feit. And the results are a simple, elegant and - quite frankly - breathless shoe.

The Supermarine looks to be a slimmed-down version of Feit's Superclean Low 1, minus the welt stitching. The silhouette of the Supermarine is spartan, yet striking; in this case less appears to be more. This "handmade" sneaker comes in two colorways (Flat Black and Olive), features a reflective strip on the heel and is made from breathable water resistant materials. They come housed in an almost logo-free box paired with a black satchel bag akin to the kind Clae used to provide with their shoes.

This being Outlier, these puppies, of course, aren't cheap. A mere $260 is the price you'll have to pay if you want these elegant sneakers cradling your toes. $pendy? Oh, no doubt. But just look at these shoes. I mean, who really needs things like food and shelter, anyway?

Now, if only there were a way for me to review these shoes and give you, the reader, a performance assessment of them. Hmm....
