"We have one pair of sample size (US Men's 9) Gabe Morford x Vans Syndicate slip-ons, which will release later this year, in December...
This cycling-focused, specially designed model features a stiffened foot-bed for increased power-transfer, an easy-into-the-toeclips waxed-canvas toebox, breathing/ventilation-holes in the foot arch and a special, reinforced suede rear. The shoes will be produced in a run of 500 pairs.
This year's Tour De France featured a climb over the highest mountain road pass in Europe, the ROUTE DE LA BONETTE (2802 Meters/9192 Feet).
You can own the pair featured here by submitting a photo of you and your bike on top of the highest road, pass or elevation in your area. Photos should have substantiated documentation of elevation in feet or meters, and he/she who is highest (no 420) wins... Send your photograph no later than 12 September 2008 to firstname.lastname@example.org
Good Luck and, happy climbing!"
