If you like shoes with a story behind them, the Nike Zoom City Tiempo City Pack may just be the shoes for you. Originally a soccer shoe, the Tiempo was reinforced and designed to suit all the needs of the inner-city bike rider. Taking it a step further, Nike created the City Pack, for which each shoe in the pack was given an appearance inspired by a particular rider and the city from which he hails. Each rider—Kyle Demers from New York City, Jupiter Desphy from Los Angeles, Superted James from London, Takaharu “Hal” Okada from Tokyo, Yorgo Tloupas from Paris, Henrik Kuerschner from Berlin, Massan Fluker from San Francisco, and Lance Armstrong from Austin, TX—then wore the Zoom Tiempo on a lengthy ride from London to Paris on a fixed gear bike. You can check out the story of the ride here. More pictures and release information after the jump.
