DZR RELEASES MECHANICS SHOE, WINS BEST BOOTH BABES OF INTERBIKE
DZR is the king of street cool. Their new Mechanic shoe is no exception. Released last year as a limited release, this year the shoes have joined the official product line. They feature a natural gum rubber sole, a double stitched abrasion resistant nylon upper, and a perforated synthetic leather toe box. They’re also clipless compatible

DZR – Most Creative Display
DZR went wild with Rita the bearded dragon, a few goldfish and a furry little tarantula.
Most cleated mountain bike shoes look the same. Not these. Conceived in the Swiss Alps and refined in San Francisco by guys who like to ride trail as much as city street, the gum rubber-sole Mechanic is a fabric and leather kick you can wear to the office or out with friends without them suspecting that they’re anything more than your everyday shoes. The abrasion resistant nylon upper is double stitched to beat wear and tear and lined with a stylish pattern

Take a more classic approach to your urban commute with the DZR Strasse mid-top shoes. The uppers are built with a mix of leather and herringbone-pattern fabric for a casual look but down below is a recessed pocket for two-bolt cleats and a mildly stiffened shank for more efficient pedaling. We plan on donning these for regular errands about town and might even hit our local bike park in them for a few sessions too.

These shoes are definitely urban shoes. They are meant to be worn in an urban setting, meant to be ridden in an urban setting and ultimately meant to be enjoyed in an urban setting. I found the shoes to be their most comfortable on rides less than 10 miles long. Their look allows them to be worn with many different styles, too.

The Tosca shoes from DZR stand out from the crowd. Looking like a pair of trainers we would happily own for everyday use, they’ve got a cunningly recessed section for bolting on your cleats.
Quality leather, plus herringbone fabric, reflective detailing and a reinforced stiffened sole – these shoes have had some serious thought go into them, and we’d happily wear these on a relaxed night out, as well as on the bike.

The DZR Marco is a polo-specific SPD-compatible high-top built around a nylon shank that provides a strong, stiff platform for efficient power transfer on the bike, in a style you can wear off. Polo can be a rough sport on the ankles, but the Marco’s high-top design includes a surprising amount of protection. The ankle padding feels like a cross between a lightweight hiking shoe and the pillowy interior of a skateboarding shoe without making them look like a set of clogs. I’ve never really been one for wearing high-tops, but after taking a few knocks, I have to say that I may be converted.

Overall I highly suggest the DZR Tosca’s for city riding. The shoes are comfortable for medium length rides (in my book that’s usually 30 miles or less) and for walking around town. I prefer to wear my Tosca’s in the fall/winter as they are a little too warm for my liking in the summer.

DZR has got an Dirt and Urban clipless Collection and a Dirt Flat Pedal Collection. The men shoes are available in EU 41 – 47 the unisex models are available in EU 37 – 47.
The shoe uses a fiberglass shank to provide enough stiffness to handle hard pedaling, but the sole still has enough traction for off-bike excursions. A hook and loop closure prevents the laces from snagging on crankarms and chainrings, and adds a little protection from the elements. The Terra models are available in 4 different colors (BLACK, Sea LTD, Forrest LTD, Plum LTD).

DZR's history as a shoe company began in the Swiss Alps, although they are now based out of San Francisco, California. They offer an extensive lineup of flat pedal and clipless shoes designed for everything from bike polo to World Cup downhill racing. The Sense is designed for flat pedal usage, and has an interchangeable flex system that allows riders to choose their preferred stiffness by selecting either a stiff or soft insole. The tread pattern of the sticky sole is patterned after a bike chain, with beveling to help provide additional grip. Available in sizes 41-47 EU, the Sense retails for $105 USD.
