The Quoc Pham Tourer is one of the nicest, most functional touring shoes out there. Made from supple leather with sturdy soles and a recessed cleat box, these lace-up shoes are at home on or off the bike. Quoc Pham is known for their impeccable design and execution in cycling footwear.
The specially designed sole is stiff for riding and molded to allow for a natural gait while walking.
Because the Tourer is made from leather, it will require a minimal break in period. Additionally, they also run a bit small so you may want to consider going up a size. However, many users report that given time the leather will “mold” to your feet almost like a slipper. Give some thought to what kind of socks you’re likely to wear as well as this can affect foot volume and corresponding sizing.
Recommend using the “Lace and Knot” lacing technique with these shoes.
