We just received the new S-Works Sub6 shoes.
Laces are definitely back, with most of the major manufacturers now
offering high-end lace ups.
Specialized claim the Sub6 is the most aerodynamically advanced,
lightest shoe they've ever produced. The traditional lacing system
cuts down weight, while the Warp Sleeve™ lace cover-a sleeve worn
directly over the laces-is Win Tunnel Engineered to reduce drag and
clean airflow over the shoe. When combined with the narrower heel
cup, you can save up to 35 seconds over 40 kilometres when compared
to the previous S-Works Road Shoe. With the PadLock heel, it
maintains the same secure and snug heel fit as theall-new S-Works 6
shoe for superb connection and efficient power transfer, but in a
bold yet minimalist package. Less is more.
