Don't you hate it when people call shoes kicks?
I just picked up a pair of the DVS/Cadence Rico cycling shoes, they were a smokin' deal on the skateboard site Premier. So good of a deal in fact, that my buddy immediately ordered a pair after I showed them off on their maiden voyage.
The Ricos are equipped with an extra stiff sole for pushing platform pedals and a "Road Rash Technology" canvas upper. I've definitely noticed the stiffness of the sole while riding, and not too much while walking. So far, I'd say they're a win. I'd also highly recommend Premier for skate style stuff, super fast shipping, tracking, and a free sticker and set of chopsticks with my order.
Update: They're like, waterproofish!
