Love classic leather boots? Ride SPD pedals? You'll want these ...

Brogue boots come from R.E.W. Reynolds, based in UK's shoemaking heartland of Northamptonshire...

Here’s one for the fashionistas among you – an SPD-compatible brogue boot from R.E.W. Reynolds, a company with a strong cycling heritage based in the UK’s shoemaking heartland.

Priced at £275 a pair, the bench-made brogue boots feature “full grain leather, leather lining, padded ankle, with recessed SPD mounting plate,” and are “supplied with blanking panel if cleats [not included] are not being fitted.”

They come in four colours – Spona Brown (pictured above), Antiqued Almond (shown below), Caramel, and Oxblood Waxy. Head here to order.

 Founded in 1921, R.E.W. Reynolds – not to be confused with the Birmingham-based tubing business – initially started out as a framebuilder.

It subsequently diversified into making leather cycling shoes – perhaps unsurprisingly for a company based in Northamptonshire, the centre of the UK footwear industry – and claims to be “the longest established British-made cycling shoe manufacturer.”

It was the subject of a takeover in 2015, and says that its new owners “understand the demands of today’s urban cyclist,” leading it to develop “a range of high-end English bench-made cycling specific shoes and boots that are equally at home off the bike as on it.”

Besides the brogue boots, R.E.W. Reynolds also produces Goodyear-welted cycling shoes and a men’s classic road show range.

The company adds: “We manufacture both cleated and non-cleated model; this includes brogue boots and shoes which are compatible with SPD cleats, as well as a Goodyear Welted three bolt cleated road shoe range. 

“The non-cleated range includes the 'Ralph' Goodyear Welted with the sole specifically designed for cycling and all day wear, and the Classic Road Shoe manufactured since the late 1940's.

“All our shoes are Made in Northamptonshire, England, the county famed for high quality shoe production, using the very best traditional methods of manufacture.”
