About

Momma bear's porridge was just right and so is this design! No longer will you have to decide between the two extremes of flat pedals or clip-less. This hybrid design perfectly combines the benefits of both with the patented honey comb connection.  This sleek design allows you to easily attach and detach as well as adjust your foot position on the fly.  

Wanna wear this shoe on the trail?  Wanna wear this shoe to work?  Thats no problem.  The finished product will allow you to do both of those and remain stylish at both. 

- Rather than being completely attached to the bike, riders can easily/quickly detach when needed.

- With the design of the shoe sole and the pedal to fit like a puzzle, the rider can still pedal the bike while feeling for the grooves to fit in rather than searching for the small cleat of a clip-in shoe.

- The honeycomb pattern utilized on this design allows the rider to move the placement of their foot on the fly.

- Everyday commuters can use the unique honeycomb pattern on their shoe to quickly transition from walking to cycling.

- Rather than sharp flat pedals that have a high risk of cutting your shins; these pedals will not.

- The shoe sole design will also be more comfortable to walk/run in for everyday wear than a rigid shoe sole of a clip in shoe type.

- For riders who are undecided for which type of pedal works best for them, this design can offer a third option.

Each shoe sole will have the center of the pedal directly aligned with the balls of the riders foot for optimal pedal positioning.

Risks and challenges

When manufacturing a product, there will always have unexpected set backs, but shoes come with more trouble than requiring a new mold for each size. They consume a lot of shelf space for retailers and require good guestimation of the quantities of each size. Fortunately, with the essential preordering platform that Kickstarter provides, I can better "guess" how many of each size I will need to have manufactured.

I wouldn't have pursued this project if I perceived any more hurdles, so with that said, I am confident this will be a revolutionary product for the cycling industry.
