Back in March, at the Riverside Bike Polo Tournament in Lafayette, IN, I heard Eric Kremin (of The Beaver Boys) talking about DZR approaching him about trying out a new clipless shoe that would fit the needs of a polo player. Getting back home from the tournament, I started my research into what I found DZR called the Task Collection. I sought out trying to get an interview with someone at DZR to find out some more info on the line.
...La novità per l'inverno 2012 sono i modelli della linea “Task”, dove le prestazioni sono state incrementate con delle piastre più rigide per consentirne un uso piu’ inteso come il mountain biking o il bike polo, sport molto in voga fra i ragazzi americani e in Europa. Ready to ride?

If you haven’t seen DZR shoes they’re worth taking a look at if you’re after a SPD shoe that doesn’t look like your typical SPD shoe. Their sneaker is designed with performance attributes for cycling but without the “I am a cyclist appearance”. The bottom of the shoe has an integrated cleat to fit SPD pedals to allow maximum performance on the bike but with a fresh look off as well. Check out their new Task shoe collection.
DZR’s new Task Collection offers 8 different styles and colors. They’ve added stability, traction and power transfer to the new Task Collection. This is DZR’s progression into a performance bases SPD shoe offering while still providing aesthetically appealing shoes. Task Collection includes the Link, Dice, Mamba, and Mamba X.

Three weeks ago I was lucky enough to receive a pair of the new DZR Minna SPD-compatible shoes / sneakers and have had a pretty great experience with them so far.
Style-wise, these carry a subtle sophistication … They’ve also got subtle reflective inserts on the backs of the heels to help with visibility, a detail I love cause I find myself riding at night quite often.
In terms of performance, I’ve been really impressed so far. The sole is stiff in just the right area and allows the perfect bit of flex in the toe-box and heel areas

Cyclists often face a paradox: Dress in functional clothes that make you look like an escapee from a Jazzercize-themed gulag or wear stylish clothes that chafe and pinch things that should never be chafed or pinched. DZR’s new line of clipless-compatible shoes are an exception to the rule: They sport semi-rigid soles that offer plenty of power transfer to the pedals, yet also allow you to walk around, minus the pregnant-duck waddle

DZR’s District Shoes
Cycling clothes should have a five-foot rule: That is, how is what you’re wearing going to look when you get more than five feet from your bike? (Hint: Lycra isn’t good.) DZR’s District shoes look great. Their style is that of normal sneakers, but they have stiffer soles for pedaling and the ability to add clipless cleats so you can use step-in pedals, such as Shimano’s SPD system. It’s a nice balance between pedaling efficiency and walking comfort, with a decided lean toward pedaling.

.... One special detail sets these apart from other attempts at glory; SPD cleats. Yep. Finally, a simple and clean silhouette you can wear to the bar and the office while riding your favorite steed equipped with SPD pedals. Hell, because of the recessed cleat, you can ride toeclips too! Not bad at all. I might actually have to try a pair out and maybe give a few away on Prolly is not Probably.

…In my search for that perfect, do-it-all shoe, I have found two good contenders. Out of those two, the winner for me is the DZR made Rondel. The off the bike performance is really want I need. My commute is short enough that the lack of stiffness isn’t as big a deal to me…

The only problem with that is most SPD compatible shoes are less than stylish. And by ‘less than stylish’ I mean embarrassingly ugly… That’s why DZR created their line of Urban Cycling Shoes.
Made to fit in no matter where you go, DZR’s line was created by people who live on their bikes, and wanted to be able to go from trail to town, and have the balance of performance on the bike, while looking good off the bike.
