The Urbanized Cycling Shoe was designed specifically to meld form and function in one stylish package. As spring fast approaches, or for those who live in rainier cities such as Vancouver, London and Seattle, riding one's bike becomes a bit of an expensive art form. Special weatherproof gear is required to ensure that people stay dry on the road.
Designed by Jillian Tackaberry, a fashion and industrial designer based in Chicago, Illinois, the Urbanized Cycling Shoe provides an easy solution. It is a shoe that people will want to wear even when its not pouring out. Sleek and simple, the Urbanized Cycling Shoe boasts the snug fit, cleated soles and pedal systems that most cycling shoes have. Yet it has a ripstop nylon fabric that can be pulled over the entire shoe when its raining.
