Menchov signs with Geox, slips into sporty leather shoes.
Who will wear the coveted Icona, a European-inspired sport design with a hint of retro flair?
Will it be new signing Denis Menchov, little Carlos Sastre, will the rumored arrival of Janez Brajkovic and Chris Horner be an occasion for a mass fitting of the Icona?
Out of the ashes of the Footon-Servetto team, the closet organizer boys, comes the new Italian shoe manufacturer Geox. Shelving systems aren’t near as sexy as italian leather.
The first training camp should be an exciting time. Will Menchov slip into the Lenny, a sophisticated driving moc in rich leather? Would the SIlent Assassin prefer the Fulvio Moc so he can quietly sneak up behind people?
And what about Carlos Sastre? We see him in the dressy Londra — subtle design elements infuse this iconic silhouette with contemporary flair. This team is going to step up to the podium and get a shoe shine, baby.
Is a stylish cleat-friendly black leather wing-tip in the works? What do the Geox shoe designers have in mind for this team? Twisted Spoke wishes Riccardo Ricco, the Cobra, had signed with Geox. He could have been walking around post race in his beige Snake mocs, a smooth leather moccasin with sport-inspired stripes.
The ProTour is a strange and crazy world: one day you’re wearing a hideous flesh colored jersey with a giant black foot on it and the next, you’re strolling around town in hip Italian leather shoes.
