A re-introduction of the original Vittoria 1976 Shoe by the Vittoria shoe company, founded by former professional rider Celestino Vercelli, the Vittoria Lorica 1976 Cycling Shoe is an SPD compatible road or city cycling shoe, ideal both off the bike and on.  

Made completely by hand in Biella, Italy by Vittoria, the 1976 shoes use Lorica uppers uniquely peppered with air holes for breathability. The sole is rubber with an SPD recess centred around ruggedised grips for all weather traction whilst off the bike.

    Great to see these hard-to-get shoes now available from Alwaysriding. I was first attracted to these by their retro looks but appearances aren't everything... These are the best cycle shoes I've worn. I usually wear velcro-closed MTB or touring style shoes. In comparision Vittorias are super light and fit like a glove, yet the stiff sole is fine for walking on say in the evenings if used on tour. The shoes are perforated - which probably really helps the lack of sweatiness and general comfort from the man-made uppers. Not so good in winter obviously! The uppers are super supple - which is probably a key part of their comfort. Fit I would say is very accurate - but bear in mind these are close fitting shoes. Like a tailored shirt they are meant to be snug. I have a narrow-to-mid foot. Wide feet might want to try a size up? So, I take 10-10 1/2 and the 45 was spot on. And they do look great too!

    Truly. They are. Stylish and classic. Every detail exudes quality. I wear them to commute and I feel fantastic! As always, the service was impressive.

    Is this the endless search that ends? Casual but stylish cycling shoes I can wear in normal society? Well, yes and no. No, because they're patent shiny white leather, which was rather to my surprise, and perhaps a little too showy for me. But yes, because they are understated, gorgeous, classic, comfortable, have enough room for an insole (I use Specialized BG inserts for my high arches) and lovely.
    I'm a Specialized 45, and these were too. They are quite roomy, so ideal for thick socks or insoles. A bit chilly for Winter, but hell, they're going to be awesome when its warmer. maybe that patent leatheryness will have dulled a bit by then too!

    As a classic size 11 I panicked when I saw the box, but the size is perfect and the style is just what I expected. The only complaint I have with the shoes is that the inner sole is creased in a number of places (sort of one size fits all , or does not!). The creases make the shoe uncomfortable, I hope it smoothes out with riding. I would have expected better considering the price.

    An Italian design classic. They look and feel great. The length was true to size, i am a 43. They are a slim fit shoe, there is some adjustment with the laces but if you need a wide fit these shoes are not for you. I love these shoes and the Always Riding service was excellent. Happy riding :-)

Vittoria shoes are a slim fit without being overly small. You should be able to wear the same size as you would in any other road cycling shoe, without compromising on fit.
