Yes, the name is Fabian Cancellara, and he has now put his name and reputation behind some of the coolest and most comfortable shoes in the peloton, those from Suplest.

The European company have announced a limited EDGE+ Fabian Cancellara shoe in black and gold and limited to only 250 pairs worldwide. 'Spartacus's' exceptional milestones can be identified by discrete figures printed on the side of the shoe. 

TECHNICAL HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SHOE

The new EDGE+ Road shoe smoothly wrap the foot and are said to guarantee a comfortable fit, or 'a second skin' as Suplest say.

"The ANATOMICWRAP tongue construction is suitable for different foot shapes," say the company in launch notes. "While the last is the typical suplest fit of our shoes – our DNA."

"The thin Japanese microfiber upper material has a stretch-free CARBONSHIELD layer which gives an exceptionally good feeling of attachment to the pedal. The precise Boa® closure system guarantees a balanced distribution of pressure over the entire foot – millimeter adjustment while riding."

"The SOLESTAR insole ensures maximum comfort and uncompromising stability. A newly developed suplest ERGO 360° carbon outsole has a SL foam core to make it lighter. Molded SUPtraction bumpers protect the outsole and a toe vent permits airflow."
