There are two pairs of Patrick touring shoes from the 70-80's for sale on Ebay in size 42 (not my size unfortuantely). Back in my college days, I wore the black ones day in day out for 3 years, the most comfortable shoes that I ever found that worked both for cycling and walking. By unstitching the white stripes and removing the white Patrick brand, they were also very presentable. I'm not too sure about the white pair for sale, but then if you can get people to lust over am Acqua Sapone pro jersey maybe these aren't bad.
At the time these were sold, about the only other alternatives were from Adidas and the venerable Bata bikers. Does anybody remember them?
