It’s Halloween and nothing remotely spooky has happened in the cycling world but we’ve done a bit of digging around and found something bike related that’ll scare you witless (that’s ‘witless’)… Green Monster cycling shoe covers.
Now, calm yourself and come out from behind the sofa. They’re not real green monster feet. They’re actually cycling shoe covers with a green monster foot design on them. You should have worked that out for yourself, really.
They’re from the US – of course they are – and they’re available in three different thicknesses priced $29.99-$39.98.
There are other designs too. Oh yes, there are others: Talons, duck feet, roller skates, basketball shoes, high heels… all sorts. And you can get them from www.podiumshoecovers.com.
Look, it was the best I could come up with at short notice. I’m going to sit down and have a long, hard think about what I’ve just done. I apologise for wasting your time. Have a good Halloween.
