Clipless Cycling Shoes

The DZR Purp Shoes Feature a Slip-On Feel and Deep Purple Hues

— July 4, 2017 — Fashion
Not all cyclists are ultra-serious athletes who spend years training for competitive meets and consume a diet that's right out of a textbook, so there's no reason why all cycling shoes need to take themselves so seriously, something that the DZR Purp shoe mercifully refrains from.

The DZR Purp is billed as being targeted towards the lazy cyclist, but there's nothing lazy about the design work that went into this shoe, which brings together an absolutely magnificent deep purple hue, made all the more exquisite by an ashen texture, and an unabashedly prominent flap that screams languid style. A perforated vamp completes this shoe's handsome look.

With no ungainly clips, laces or buckles, slipping into the DZR Purp feels like walking on clouds, as your foot is snugly ensconced in the sturdy yet soft interior of the shoe. But while no one will blame you for simply loafing around in these kicks with your feet up on the couch, these are in fact cycling shoes, and feature the performance factors that you'd come to expect from DZR.

For one, these cycling shoes feature DZR's variable flex shank technology, which uses carefully isolated areas of stiffness to ensure efficient transfer of power from your legs to your pedals (when cycling) or to the pavement (when walking). The shoes' natural gum rubber grip offers the perfect balance between durability and stickiness, ensuring optimum grip and bounce.

Whether you're trying to gain style points while hanging out in the coffee shop, or looking to leave other cyclists behind in terms of both performance and style, the DZR Purp is a wingman you can rely on.
