Founded in the Swiss Alps and now thriving in San Francisco, DZR creates bike shoes that excel in any terrain. The latest addition to their Street Collection, Mechanic, is no exception. The strong, classic style features a “co-molded power plate.” The natural gum rubber sole is powerful on the pedal yet flexible on the sidewalk, making the performance footwear high-quality and versatile. A particular standout, the outsole is ruggedly textured with link-traction for a superior grip. Fronting the design is the perforated vegan toe cap, which enhances the style and comfort of the kicks. There are also ballistic nylon side panels, a lightweight, strong layer. Shop the Mechanic online from DZR, $99 for the basic model, additional for cleats.
