I was just trawling around the internet when I cam e across these new shoes from Nike. They are called the ‘Soaker’. And from what I can gather they are designed for boating and wet weather type of things. The deal is that the shoes drain away water through holes in their sole! Interesting. We are waiting to get some here in the office because I think they might be OK for mountainbiking, especially as they come with Nike’s new sticky rubber compound sole.
