POLARIS Bojo, £64.99, www.polaris-apparel.co.uk

Long-time bikewear brand Polaris recently unveiled this urban cycling shoe, aimed squarely at commuters and tourers. It has a fairly robust synthetic suede upper, a PVC heel box for stability and moderately rugged outsole. We found it best suited mid-width feet; wider feet were ok in a summer Coolmax sock but a little snug with bulkier Sealskins. The sole is SPD-compatible, just unscrew the cover and add your cleats. Even with the reflective detailing at the heel, overall styling is subtle and will look like a cross-trainer to your pub mates. Sizes 40-48. Mark B
