Chrome Industries partners with Panaracer to re-engineer its range of urban cycling shoes

3 min read

Chrome has refreshed its urban shoe range in collaboration with Panaracer who has supplied its expertise in rubber compounds to produce grippy soles. The refresh also sees the return of the Kursk AW Pro, an SPD-equipped trainer that could make for some of the best commuter cycling shoes, as well as being well suited to couriers and urban riders who want the efficiency of clipping in, with the casual aesthetic of a trainer.

Headlining the Chrome AW21 footwear launch is the Kursk AW 2.0 Pro. Across the Chrome range, the Pro name is used to denote the SPD-equipped models which feature a recessed two-bolt mountain bike cleat in the sole. While more and more brands have started releasing casual SPD-equipped footwear, such as Adidas’ Velosamba, Chrome was one of the first to do it with the original Kursk Pro range.
