Article says they will run 700 bucks and you can preorder at your local dealer. :)

imagine how you'd have to compliment your kit when you show up at the group ride wearing these. And the bike you have to ride. Man, you'd better be fast - real fast!

At least with Bonts or other custom shoes, you can play it off as 'needed' to fit your odd-shaped foot.

I'm 200 pounds. My shoes aren't what's pulling me backwards on hills. They do look nice, though.

i have 3 pair of S-Works shoes. I personally look at them as luxury items. Horribly HORRIBLY overpriced and the epitome of marginal gains, but they are treats every time i put them on my feet.

Geez. I doubt that shoe costs even $50 to make. Probably not $40. It'll be less comfortable, give virtually no performance benefit and cost $700. But I'm sure they'll sell the 500 pairs.

Dyneema ain’t cheap. I’ve priced it for use in armored vehicle applications. Awesome stuff. Also requires some manufacturing adjustments. Probably much more than $50 to construct. But yes, halo pricing.

The 99-gram lace ones are $700; the 150-gram boa ones are $500.

I actually don't like the way they look and don't want laces. Yet another product showing the ridiculous direction the industry is going.
