Old Shoes

Back in August 2003 I headed off to the Channel Islands to do some holiday cover work for my friend and former boss Ian Brown in his Cycle Shop in Guernsey and for a week at Mark Pickford’s shop in Jersey. During my time on the Island I binned the Specialized BG Boots that had nearly crippled me on the ride from Dover to Luzern and bought a new pair of riding shoes.

Old Cannondale Shoes

They were these Cannondale efforts and they’ve proven to be a great pair of shoes for £50. After years of light trail work, trudging around and working in bikes shops and most recently commuting, they’ve been retired. Sporting some rather compromising holes in the uppers and a fairly worn out tread they’ve certainly been good value for money.
