“My brown Dromarti Sportivos are the most comfortable stylish cycling shoes I have ever worn. Here in Oregon there are cyclocross races most evenings during the week. It's not uncommon for me to wear my Dromartis to my last business meeting of the day with my race kit underneath my slacks, shirt and tie -- the Dromarti's look so good with slacks nobody notices they are cycling shoes. I drive straight to the bike race after work, pull off my business clothes and I am ready to warm up and race!
I have people stop me before and after I race both complimenting me on my shoes and asking where they can get them!
I am a former marathoner and ultra marathoner that started cycling just over a year ago as crosstraining. I have raced 58 cyclocross races in my Dromarti shoes this fall and they have performed flawlessly, they are easy to clip into the pedals on remounts and the aggressive tread are great for run ups in the mud or dry loose conditions. I once flatted on my first lap of a cross race with no back-up bike in the pits and to avoid a DNF, I ran 8K, the entire race pushing my bike in the mud and my Dromarti's felt like running shoes and did not aggravate my plantar fasciitis even after running for 40 straight minutes in them. I currently lead the Oregon Bicycle Racing Association (ORBA) Ironman standings and recently completed the feat of racing 5 cyclocross races in a single day wearing my brown Dromarti's. Cycling has helped me rehabilitate my hip after a bad car accident and has substantially improved my overall fitness, allowing me to return to running marathons again.
One should not be worried about racing in a pair of Dromarti's - they aren't too pretty to race, they are durable and perform fantastically, with a little shoe polish they will shine like new again after a weekend of hard racing.”

SELECTING YOUR SHOE SIZE
It's quite easy to deal with this, as our shoes are similar in size to the major Italian, Japanese and American cycling shoes brands. Therefore, just order the size of cycling shoes you already have.
It's worth noting that cycling shoes, tend to be size differently from walking shoes, so expect your cycling shoes size be larger than your everyday walking shoe size.
Our shoes are made of leather, therefore overtime the upper will naturally stretch, molding it's self to the unique shape of your foot.
If you take a half size, round down to the full size.
If these are your first cycling shoes, just order one size larger than your walking shoe size.
If you would like to discuss this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org I would be delighted to hear from you.
One of the many joys of leather is that with a little care they will just get to look better and better.
In fact, leather is far more durable and will look better for longer, than any synthetic material. Just read the article by Dromarti customer Greg Eyerly
Just follow some simple rules.
When wet, stuff the shoes with newspaper and allow to dry naturally away from direct heat.
As needed, clean with shoe brushes, apply a good quality shoe polish and watch your shoes become even more beautiful.
We're also big fans of 'Waximum™' made by Timberland which we've found a truly great product.
