Subject: Help me pick colors custom bike shoes

I ordered custom bike shoes few months ago and they are ready to be manufactured. Help me pick color combination. My bikes are always red. I want red, checkerboard, black and possibly silver. My daughter took photo and customized colors. Here are the choices. I want them a bit funky.

Version 5

 

Version 6

 

version 7

 

version 8

Checkerboard. No question. If you're going to bother with custom, go unique!

Thanks for the input....keep it coming.

My daughter Emily made these samples up from photos from D2Shoes....she is very creative and talented.

I for sure want checkerboard. I wanted checkerboard straps but not an option.

I'm hoping for long rides without numb feet. My cleats are to far forward due to wide feet buying men's shoes to big to accommodate width.

I voted for 5, but WOULD have voted for 8 if the straps were not white.  I just think white straps are going to get REALLY dirty, really fast...maybe 8 with silver straps?

I would try to mimic classic Vans - checkered on the heels and toes, with solid in the middle.

Interesting point Jen.

What about 8 w/black straps?

I just heard 8 is not possible as checkerboard can't be in the arch So they suggested #6. Wonder if red and checkerboard would look better switched in back on version 6.

Need to get Emily to make yet another version.

We liked these 4 choices the best. You should see the earlier versions...bit like clown shoes

Silver color in mock up is off a bit from true color.

#6 pops the most when you scroll them quickly.  I like the white straps.  For a truly funky shoe, just go sockless and never wash them.Tongue out

I am an outlier, but I like 5.  I like the silver straps, and I like no overdoing the checkerboard and keeping it to the heel.

I'll help bump #5 out of the minority; that's my choice!  If they were for me, I'd go with #6 because they are my club colors and they match my bike colors perfectly.  But visually, I like #5 best.

I prefer version 8, but since it isn't an option then version 5 is the next choice.

8 was the best; but since it's not possible, go with 6.

I like 5, but for a guy.  You can/should go with a bit more flair.

I thought 8, maybe with silver straps, but since that's out, I'll vote for 6 but with silver on the arch and red on the strap.  (Is that still a vote for 6??)  I agree that the white strap will get dirty.  Black and silver straps makes it seem a bit dark on top (the part most visible).  That's why I went for red straps.  Won't show dirt as much, but will stand out.

They updated the Ultra's last week so layout of colors is different than what we were on and some limits to what material will can go where. Having knee issues need to make shoe best for knee with fashion and flair a close second.

I'll post more options later today.

Subject: RE: Help pick colors custom bike shoes-Final version

This is what we have come up with. They have carbon or kevlar overlay that has black stripes over. So took version 6 and added the black overlay. Outside by heel will have a small triangular shape red w/black overlay as well by sole under D2 logo strap.

I don't like the white straps either, but I was thinking red straps, and make the checks black and red instead of black and white... or red and white like a tablecloth
