The DZR Ovis Cycling Shoe is a non padded, classic profile in a midtop, designed to be both simple and unique, yet timeless and modern.

Like the rest of their urban cycling shoe range, the DZR Shoes combine an SPD compatible midsole with a vulcanised rubber outsole; but the Ovis also rocks a soft, supple leather upper, which is so nice, it might lead you to forgot you even have cycling shoes on.

Loss of power transfer to the pedals is one of the main reasons you probably already wear a traditional cycling shoe to commute over a more urban orientated piece that you can wear off the bike, so to combat this problem, DZR moved the sole's flex point further back towards the rear. The net result is a natural walking gait as the shoe can move with the foot. But on the bike, more power is delivered to the pedals throughout the pedal stroke.

Finished with a 600 luminosity reflective rear badge, the DZR Ovis Shoe is an ideal city riding piece for both on and off the bike adventures, for the rider that only wants to wear one shoe throughout the day.

    I wear these shoes five days a week. I am lucky that I can get away with something this casual at work, and as I ride to work and have a desk job it is no problem to wear them all day. If I am going to meet friends, I can wear these to ride to work and they are fine to walk around in.

    Not quite as good as proper cycling shoes on the bike, but a great option for shorter rides with walking! Walking a few km in these is no problem for me. With my SPD setup, the cleats rarely scrape except on uneven ground.

    Well thought out product, especially the elastic pieces to hold laces back from the chain.

    If you didn't have to cut the sole with a knife to fit cleats this would get 5 stars (not that this is a huge problem as it only has to be done once).

    These boots surpassed my expectations. The leather is soft and supple, with support where it is required. The sole is stiffer than normal sneakers so more power gets transferred to the pedals, and your feet move around less on the pedal. I haven't installed cleats on these yet and I may not bother. The sneaker, as is, offers such comfort on platform pedals that they are elready a massive improvement on normal boots. They look great, are very comfortable off the bike and have lots of touches that will suit a commuter such as reflexive icons on the back heel. I will be buying more DZR shoes in the future.

    This is my first purchase from Always Riding and I am impressed by the speed of delivery and ease of use or the site, I ordered the boots on Friday night and they arrived to my front door in Melbourne, Australia the next Thursday, Wow!!

    Perfect for urban commuting, stops at cafes etc. Very comfortable to walk in for an spd shoe and mostly I don't even give this any thought. So far they have stood up to the challenges of daily life for some months. Even if I don't expect them to last for years I would definitely buy again. Super fast shipping.

    I was after some Vans type shoes for short commuting/loafing around/having a spin round with the kids. Love my Vans, but theyre so flexy for riding in. Saw these and they seemed to fit the bill. After some umming and ahhing i ordered some.
    Emailed the guys at Always Riding for some sizing guidance as shoe buying over the internet is always a bit risky.
    Anyway, the email was answered in minutes, and the order was placed. On this, i'm a Euro 45 in most leisure and bike shoes. The exceptions for me are i size up to 46 in Shimano and Sidi. I was advised to order 45. These are perfect. Hope that helps others a little.
    The shoes arrived next day. Really nice quality, really strong smell of quality, supple leather uppers. Look really nice on. Forefoot is nicely stiff (not overly), and rear seems to have more flex on walking. The SPD slot needs cutting out, which is perfect for me, as my intention is to use them with flatties or toe clips. There are some bolt on covers included for those who remove the SPD cover and later want to use them for flatties (i guess).
    Cant't coment on any sort of longevity, but they seem really nicely made, so hope that's an indication of long term build quality.
    In a nutshell very pleased.
    Always Riding, yet again, providing a really good service all round. Others should take note.

    I'd been looking for something along these lines for quite a while - a casual looking shoe with SPD capabilities. I'm extremely pleased with the DZR Ovis. It looks like the sort of shoe I'd wear to work (we have a fairly relaxed dress code) but it means I can still use my SPDs and not have to carry a spare pair of shoes.
    The sole of the shoe is quite flexible, which is good for walking in, but not great for cycling efficiency - which is the right way round for my use. The leather is very soft and supple, again this great for wearing the shoes all day but I'm a little concerned about long-term use. Time will tell!
    Regarding sizing, I'm usually a Euro size 48, but the recommendation was to go with a size smaller - which was lucky as a 47 is the biggest size available. They fit fine, but I certainly wouldn't want them any smaller. They probably equate to a UK size 12.5.

DZR Shoes have traditionally run slightly large, but recently many riders have been reporting that they feel the shoes run true to size. The reality is probably somewhere in the middle, so expect a slightly larger size in general, but if in doubt, please take a moment to read some of the DZR product reviews to see what other riders have said about their shoes and experiences.
