Lower Southside Pro

 

These are SO RAD!  I don’t typically get this hyped about a pair of sneakers, but these hit the spot.  I gotta hand it to Brian (Chrome’s Press Contact) for targeting Folly with these dope Urban SPD shoes.  I hope you guys dig these, we most definitely are.  Make sure to head over to Chrome for a closer look at the Lower Southside Pro!

“For Fall 2012 Chrome is proud to announce a new SPD shoe, the Lower Southside Pro.  The Lower Southside Pro is the latest in Chrome’s Pro/SPD Series and was created for commuters who want clip-in performance in a sneaker they can wear all day long.  It features a 100% vulcanized sole with rigid nylon shank on 3/4 of the sole with recessed SPD-compatible sole for pedal power and flexible shank at the toe-plate to help you walk smoother.  The durable leather and nylon upper make the Lower Southside Pro an instant classic for Urban SPD shoes.” – Chrome

Duplex Lever

The Duplex Lever is a single brake lever that pulls on two brake cables simultaneously. It was originally designed for bike polo players, to allow them to use both brakes while swinging a polo mallet with their free hand. Since its introduction the Duplex has generated considerable excitement among adaptive cyclists as well.” – Paul Component

Sick!  I’ll be keeing an eye out for any gnar polo players using these suckers at South In Yo Mouth this Saturday.
