Veja and French cycle shop Cyclope are joining forces to create an exclusive sneaker, made from ecological material and adapted for fixed-gear cycling.
The shoe will be made with a hard wearing, 25 mm Amazonian rubber sole and the front will have a vegetable-tanned leather yoke to provide increased foot protection.
The shoes, which are due for release on Feb 1st 2010 are so exclusive that only 384 pairs are being produced with a retail cost of £95.
The shoes, which will come in either a blue/black or red/black colour option, can only be bought in two London shops, Offspring Neal Street and Brick Lane Bikes, or else from Cyclope, Paris.
