Specialized Stumpy II >> $125

While technically a men’s shoe, the only people I know who own these Specialized casual flats that mimic the popular S-Works road shoe are women. With a low-top look, but a cyclist’s flare, the white patent leather looks sleek with jeans, and of course wearing them announces to the world what you would rather be doing.

Available in men’s sizes 7 (40cm) through 14 (47cm) for $125, the flats are cheaper than the performance road version, and you can cinch them down nice and tight without ever having to tie your shoes.

Emily Zinn spent her infancy in the back of a women's team van while the team built wheels around her. She spent part of her pre-teen years in Europe following the major European mountain, road and gravity races and touring cycling product factories. College was the first time she lived in a home without a frame building shop in her garage or basement. Her favorite style of riding is getting lost in singletrack trail networks and taking her time finding her way back.
