Hey all . . . this is my first post and my first shoe so here goes nothing!

The main innovation is simply integrating the pedal into the shoe. The molded toe-piece snaps directly onto the pedal shaft and has embedded bearings to allow rotation. This combination allows for a more stream-lined approach that minimizes size and weight.

considering the extreme high premium on lightweight materials & design throughout high-end cycling. I chose an absolute minimalist approach, developing a 'sandal' concept, only the pressure points being addressed. Fit is achieved through a twisting tensioner on the cross-strap. Image

This is a low cost/low tech customizable shoe, allowing for a less expensive alternative to the current customizable shoe. A semi-soft double layered "upper" (?) allows the user to form one layer of the material to their individual foot ,apply epoxy in between then the second "upper" layer to create a rigid upper.
The buckles connect under the shoe and use part of the stiff carbon outsole for structure allowing for a lighter shoe with two buckles.

thanks

Here is my submission.
Focus on an adjustable sole, making shoe comfortable for touring and stiff enough for sprinting. Easily adjustable by user.

You all have an extra couple of hours. I am going to a barbeque and going to get fat(er) on red meet and beer.

Ultimate Maneuverability cycling shoe

This is my first post on the site so hopefully its ok lol

The shoes main goal is to give the rider the best maneuverability possible.

The mesh coated neoprene lined upper is attatched to a thick tough rubberised sole. This sole incorporates a circular plate which can be un-clipped and allow the shoe to move about the pedal at up to 45 degree angles.

Attatched to this rotating sole unit is a rubber spring which allows some side to side movement putting less pressure on the ridders ankles.

I ended spending some time last night rendering up my two skethces in photoshop, definitely over the time limit for the comp. but any feedback or critique is welcome.

Nike flywire in the upper to create a lightweight, supportive fit while still being well ventilated.
