The Northwave Evolution SBS is a high-end shoe from the Italian cobblers in Treviso and the racing slipper of choice for the likes of Cancellara, Greipel, Gilbert, Hincapie and the Schleck brothers, so lord knows what I'm doing with them.
As you'd expect from a top clog Northwave have shoehorned a whole boxful of features into the shoe with SBS, AFS, A.S.R 2, WLI, ST 8:4, BioMap, a Pro Footbed and an Omega heel-cup no less.
If you don't wear road road shoes and cleats but don't fancy the standard off-road shoe, looking like a trainer on steroids and with a sole only marginally stiffer than a stale pizza, then you might be in the market for Northwave's Touring shoes. Actual road style shoes, stiff enough to make pedalling a pleasure, some give in the toes to allow you to walk and a built up rubber sole that stops you from executing groin mangling cleat-on-marble splits at the first cafe stop. Ideal for touring, audaxing or just regular sport/leisure riding and of course, commuting.
