chrome sneakers?

so i guess chrome is making it's way into the cycling sneaker market
 (via superb)
looks like they took the silhouette of converse chucks and dubbed it the kursk (low), midway (mid), saipan (hi-top), and arhem (chukka) however, instead of canvas it's 1000d cordura. a "propulsion plate", polyurethane slam pad, proper ventilation, 3m heel patch, lace garage, and steel aglets (that's the tip of the shoelace. i learned that watching beakmans world). now as technical as sounds, all it means is that it's stiff, comfortable, and durable. being a recovering sneaker addict and in need of a better shoe, i think i'll scoop a pair. it looks promising
