MISSION WORKSHOP Rondel shoe, £125, www.missionworkshop.com
As these were the first pair of Rondels in the UK, it’s been our pleasure to hammer them over a particularly grim winter. Smarter than a ‘skate-style' shoe, they’re designed to be worn all day about town; the midsole gives enough support on short rides, but is flexy enough for walking comfort round the home/office. The SPD cleat box is recessed so that you won’t damage wooden floors either or slide on tiles. The upper fends off splashes well, while the fit’s generous (though we’d prefer a tighter, more supportive heel cup). Flashes of refectivity too; sizes 7-10.
