adidas Readies Its First Cycling Shoe in Over 15 Years

adidas has a rich history in the world of cycling garments that dates back to the mid-1950s. From cleats and jerseys, to caps and bibs, the German label became one of the go-to brands for on-bike apparel back in the day.

Now though, adidas is readying the launch of its first cycling shoe in over 15 years, with a release aptly dubbed: the Road Cycling Shoe. Arriving in either a white or black colorway, this drop marks the brand’s first cycling footwear since it released the Adistar Road SL back in 2005.

Boasting the label’s archetypal three stripes, classic lace closure system and three-bolt cleat compatibility, each shoe has an innovative Primeweave upper that’s both breathable and supportive — and made from 100% recycled material. The synthetic sole has also been reinforced using fibre-glass, which in-turn increases energy return with every pedal stroke.

Set to launch on November 30 via the adidas webstore, adidas’ Road Cycling Shoes will cost £130 (approximately $173 USD).
