Chrome Truk -

When toe cages and double straps destroy everything that they come into contact with, durable shoes are crucial. Not only to avoid burning away your money, but so that you don't develop tree knot sized blister scars where the tops of your feet used be. And believe it or not, this ailment is easy to avoid with the Chrome Truk Shoes.

Chrome's Truk Shoes are made from an almost identical fabric to what's used in its messenger bags -- 1000 denier Cordura. As you probably know, this stuff is strong -- like we've had the same Chrome bag for nine years strong. And aside from the upper material selection, Chrome made the whole shoe resilient to the day-to-day thrashings of urban riding. The sole is made from ultra-durable vulcanized rubber, and its also been made skid-resistant for riding/walking in all weather conditions. For construction, Chrome used a board lasted sole to stiffen up the shoes and to eliminate the threat of hot spots.

Outside of Truk's commuter advantages, Chrome made them to be the ultimate freestyle shoe. The heel is protected from bails by a rubber heel cup, and the midsole is reinforced with a nylon/glass fiber shank. Truk's low-profile also makes it easy to get in and out of either toe straps or cages. So, you don't have to go down with the ship when you miss your next smith grind.

The Chrome Truk Shoes are available in whole and half sizes from 5.0 to 13.0 and in the colors Black/black and Grey.

Positive Reviews:

This shoe is glorious. Enough said right? Not really, this shoe dominates because of the specific details that you search for in a shoe for ripping on a bike. This shoe is geared for biking, being that the sole is thick and sturdy, and the canvas its made of is SUPER waterproof and hefty against toe cage bashing. With that being said, its low profile, has two great color schemes, it's something you can wear around town, unlike their line of SPD compatibles. Chrome has stated that these run a half size larger than your normal sneakers, which is quite true. I got an 11.5 to have my toes comfortably in, the 12 allowed too much room. (wayyy too sketchy riding without brakes and not having complete response in your pedals) Ultimate decision - great looking, incredibly functional in areas that other sneakers can fail in, (terms of biking) and you'll notice your feet will feel LOCKED IN.

These are good sneaks for biking. I didn't realize how much support they offer until, after using them for a couple of weeks, went for a ride in my converse all stars. Biking with these is like having your food in a comfortable, stable platform. They are comfortable to wear just walking around too. I wasn't crazy about the red chrome logo on the side so i blacked that out with a marker. They could be a little less expensive I suppose but overall, if you bike a lot (I commute to work), they are much better than wearing regular sneakers or dress shoes. And they are smaller profile wise so you will need to tighten the pedal clips a little bit. Buy a half size smaller.

The first pair I bought was a little larger than marked. After a month of bike commuting with metal toe clips in these shoes they only have minor amounts of wear. The metal shim in the sole helps keep your foot stable as you pedal. While they're very comfortable for cycling my feet get tired when I am standing or walking for long periods.

They've been great. I wish, however, that because they are built for biking, if they had a tie down for the laces.

Not a bad shoe, slightly wide. Versatile and good feel, I walked quite a bit around France in them, but they squeak! Don't try sneaking around in them.
