DZR Shift Cycling Shoes. The DZR Shift Cycling Shoe is a natural extension from DZR's existing offerings of cycling sneakers designed for use with platform or toe clip equipped pedals. Design features include a stiffened midsole for power transfer while pedaling, a gum rubber outsole that is durable and provides optimum grip on a variety of surfaces, as well as a strategically placed directional tread. The toe portion of the sole is able to grip the ground and the mid foot is lowered for the best pedal grip, while the heal tread sheds dirt and optimizes traction. The outsole has been designed for the balance of stiffness and all day comfort while being wrapped in a sleek urban profile. The Shift has been co designed among three world renowned artists: Burrito Breath, Wakako, and D Young. Each artist has designed the interior of the shoes in order to complement the exterior design of the Shift silhouette.
