Cyclist - - Lead Out -

Hail­ing from Viet­nam, Quoc Pham set up his shoe-mak­ing busi­ness in London in 2009 with a view to com­bin­ing fash­ion with func­tion. At first he fo­cused on ur­ban cy­cling shoes for both of­fice and bike, but now Pham has turned his at­ten­tion to per­for­mance road cy­cling, and these Night shoes are his first step into the market.

Fea­tures in­clude a tastefully styled yet tech­ni­cal mi­crofi­bre up­per, a stiff yet beau­ti­ful mar­bled car­bon fi­bre com­pos­ite sole, and a patented Lock-lace clo­sure sys­tem that claims to pro­vide the el­e­gance of laces but the firm hold of a ratchet.

An up­com­ing test on cy­clist.co.uk will de­ter­mine the ef­fi­cacy of the Nights’ de­sign but, for now at least, we’ll say they’re very pretty to look at.
